Astrology is the mirroring of life on this planet in the patterning of the planets of our solar system.
Getting to know the key words for each sign, planet and house will help you to make sense of your chart. Think of it as getting to know a group of friends. When I write my horoscopes I often have a little character in my head which has been created over the years. For instance, I know when Mercury is in retrograde that Aries won't bother backing up work on computers as they are "spur of the moment” characters who act on impulse. Therefore I have to tell them more than most to make sure that they back up everything, rather like telling off a naughty child. On the other hand I'd only have to hint about this to a Virgo as they are far more practical and will take any warning to heart. Too much so in fact!
You can find out which signs you are compatible with in love work and play. Who you should be looking to for solace and who you should be looking to for a party. Which sign will give you a one-night stand and which signs will give you a lifelong commitment.
Have you ever wondered why some signs make you dumbstruck and you can't find the words you want to say to them, but instead you just stand and stare as your mouth moves but no words come out. Well now you can discover what conversation the different signs prefer, whether they are listeners or talkers and just which friends are likely to spill the dirt on you or even seduce your partner behind your back. You may have thought that your mates had dropped a fork under the table but they could just be playing footsy with your other half, so get the inside information, before they do. You also need to know where to go to find the man or woman of your dreams; you may have spent the last ten years in night-clubs when you should really have been in the supermarket. Driving down the road in the summertime? Find out what kind of music you should play to attract the man or woman of your dreams and of course what hobbies and foods they like.

The planetary cycles of Saturn, Jupiter and Uranus signify specific key phases in our lives, at around thirty, forty and fifty. And at thirty we have to deal with the influence of the midwife-like Saturn, at forty the radical gate-crasher, Uranus, and at fifty, the crusading knight in shining armour, Jupiter.
