Just like Attending any other school you have to get organized. I bought 2 large looseleaf binders. In one I have all of my printed lessons, homework, and logs of tutorial sessions. In the other I keep a KEYWORD book, any articles of interest pertaining to my studies, and tidbits of information found online or in one of my e-mail lists. Be forewarned, this book can become huge, so either keep a seperate Keyword book (A good idea) or get yourself one of those 3" Binders. I will be starting on my second 3" binder shortly. I like the looseleaf style books as I can easily take things out and put them back and arrange them the way I like.
Keep a list of sources and resources. I printed out a list of Astrology Sites that have helped me along the way and these are included in my Links Page. Join an online mailing list. Be careful, at first you will probably not understand most of what the lovely people on these lists are discussing, but one day you will and in the meantime there is a wealth of education there...along with some Humor that can really make your day sometimes <grin>. Also, be careful because these lists tend to produce a lot of mail which I still haven't found time to read all of.
Don't let yourself get overwhelmed. We can get so caught up in learning Astrology that it takes over our lives. DON'T LET IT!!! have a life, if you live, eat and breath Astrology every minute you will soon get overwhelmed or burned out. Take it nice and steady and remember to give yourself "Mental Fitness days" where you just put the astrology books away and go party! If you have a family don't forget about them...your tutors will understand and you can work at your own pace.
As you get further into your studies you will find yourself wanting to add more and more books to your library. One word of warning...books are addictive <g>. I use many of the Books I have gathered as reference material. I will read up on what I am studying or on a chart I am working on and use them to stimulate my intuition and knowledge. Below you will find a list of the books currently in my Astrology Library. All of them are available for purchase right here through association with Amazon.com. It's simple, just click on a book and it will take you directly to that book on Amazon's site. Hit your back button to return here to pick another book...that's all there is to it!
