My 1st Astrology Book

A long time ago in the far away land of Mahopac NY lived a little boy who didn’t know it but he was about to discovery a whole great big world filled with Magick and Mystery with Astrology and other esoteric things.  Of course that little boy was me and I was seven years old. While I was browsing the local Waldenbooks, which was one of my favorite places, I came upon a book that from the first page riveted my attention. The book was The Compleat Astrologer by Derrick & Julia Parker.  It had everything a young imagination could want,  planets, beautiful paintings of the signs and some of them were nudes!!  I begged my mom to get the book for me which much to my surprise she did.  It all started there and by the time I was 13 I was casting charts by hand, emphemeris in hand and my trusty Casio TI calculator.  All of this strolling down memory lane just to say if your going to start anywhere this is as good a place to start as any.  I still have the copy, all these years later and I still get a chuckle out of the nudes.
