“Concepts are provisional affairs for apprehending reality;
their value is in the grip that they provide”
— Marshall McLuhan, 1951

Astrology means being aware of your environment. It’s a branch of environmental studies, and of ethics. Astrology is what you do with it. Astrology is when you use the information you have to come up with an original idea in a new context. Astrology is what you contribute to the people who need your help, and to the body of knowledge.

Here are some of the basic resources we will learn how to use.
