My family follows the moon. This is because my son practically emerged from the womb obsessed with its ever-changing phases.
He didn't begin to speak until he was 6 years old, except for 3 sounds that he would grunt repetitively while pointing his tiny hand at whatever they represented, "Mah" for Mom (Thank goodness I made the cut!), "Bah" for Ball, and "Moo" for Moon.
As his language slowly developed over time, it became lopsided due to this particular obsession, so we were talking about the Waxing Gibbous long before he even knew how to say a proper "Hello".
So- my growing interest in astrology has been a total delight for him, and we've been having such a blast learning this stuff together.
This is his favorite page from the illustrated Book Of Shadows I created in 2011...
Pretty cool, huh?
That was the year I really got into following the phases of the moon as they pertain to magick.
Since then, I've kicked up the astrology fascination quite a few notches, delving much deeper into the various aspects of our natal charts and making so many exciting connections.
It really does explain so much!
Therefore- I thought it would be fun to share with you the books, services, Youtube channels and podcasts that have helped me take my grasp of this strange & ancient art beyond the basics of Sun-Moon-Rising signs and into a more complex understanding...
Here they are- in no particular order...
