Are you reading or listening to your Sun Sign forecast? First Mistake!

Here’s a clue—want it to be more accurate? Find your birth time! The difference between a person who reads or listens to their horoscope and the astrologer’s art is that the astrologer is layering on information, bit by bit, and synthesizing it all. You can do it too—it’s not that hard.

If you don’t know your Rising Sign, you can find it by getting your astrology chart for free on-line (like at and you’ll have your unique birth chart based on the time, date and place of your birth; that first synchronistic moment in your life; a snapshot of the sky at the moment your Soul chose to be born.

 What sign is rising? Here’s how to find it. The birth chart looks like a mandala, a clock, or a “pie” that’s divided into 12 sections. Now I want you to find your Rising sign, which is the sign placed at 9:00 o’clock on your chart. That sign is the clue to a more accurate forecast for you because it’s from your own astrology chart—not a generic one for everyone who has the same birth sign, and you’ll read that Rising sign horoscope even before you read your Sun sign. That's a clearer snapshot of your chart and life.  Astrology is not a hard science, so there will be differences, but if you ponder both Rising and Sun sign, you can get really good clues for the month or day ahead.

You see, everyone may know you’re a Libra Sun sign but your Libra friend will have the same forecast unless you read your rising sign, and then read your Sun sign. You’re adding and layering the information--synthesizing what is there; and that is the first clue as to what a professional astrologer does. Layering information.

Now there’s a third clue to going deeper into understanding your chart. What “house” is your Sun sign in? Again, starting at the Rising Sign (at 9:00 o’clock on your chart) count “counter clock wise” from the first house (the section between 9:00 and 8:00 o’clock) till you find the house or section of the chart where your Sun sign is… then read about that house and what it represents—for example, if it’s in the section of the “astrological pie” that is 4 sections from the ascendent it’s in the 4th house. That means there’s something about you (your Sun) that is deeply embedded with the meaning of that house: "home, heart, hearth" is imporatant, as well as how you frame the personal mythology of your life story.

OK. I can imagine some of you are re-reading this and shaking your head—you’re the visual learners. So take a look at my you-tube channel where I explain this. It’s at:
