For as long as I remember, I’ve been interested in stars and space. When I was a teen I loved reading horoscopes in mom’s magazines. I also studied almost by heart the only astrology book we had in the house – Sun signs. I have never thought that my on-and-off interest in astrology would turn into something serious. However, lately my interest has turned into a passion for astrology. Right now I am taking a two-years course in professional astrology.

When you are just starting to study astrology, it isn’t easy. There is a massive chunk of information you need to retain before you even start learning something “real”. You need to learn all the glyphs, the modalities, as well as what energies the planets, the signs and houses carry in them. It is overwhelming and we all know that an overwhelmed mind is ill-equipped for learning. Our mind needs structure.

When I just started tipping my toes in the ocean of astrological knowledge, I often got demotivated. First of all, I of course learned the glyphs of the planets and signs. Then I learned a little bit about the signs. Then planets. Then houses. Then I forgot almost everything about what I learned because I was jumping from one topic to another. It was hard for my brain to build a wholistic understanding of what I was learning.

While studying the basics of astrology I created an astrology cheat sheet that would make it easier for myself to structure the knowledge I was getting from the lectures I attended.

My six-page Astrology Cheat Sheet is perfect for people who want to get the main information about signs, planets, houses and aspects presented in a structured and visual way.

If you are a beginner, these astrology cheat sheets will make learning astrology and reading natal charts much easier. You will also be able to learn more quickly and more efficiently. It helped me, at least. I use these pages myself as a reference when studying my own chart and those of my family.

NOTE: I don’t want you to waste your time in case you are looking for something free to download: my Astrology Cheat Sheet is a paid product. It is packed with all the info you need to master the basics of astrology and read natal charts. The price is symbolic, really. It’s only 5.5 euros (6.5 dollars) and as one person who already bought it says: “So informative & helpful!! Worth the purchase! 🙂” .
