I'm so excited to announce the first issue of Talented Astrologer magazine!
Talented Astrologer is presented as a flip book. It combines all of the benefits of a printed publication with the convenience of a digital delivery system. You can visit the links, watch embedded videos, search, bookmark, and most importantly, share it across social media.
Each month, Talented Astrologer will include articles in different departments. The How to Become a Talented Astrologer department will feature articles that help you to develop chart interpretation skills or explore different tools and tips. It will also include The Real Houses of Astrology series from the Talented Astrologer Blog. Ask Kevin features videos where I answer your questions about the practice and profession of astrology. The Relationships department will explore the complex dynamics of human relationships, from astrological, psychological, spiritual, and practical perspectives. And the Consciousness department includes articles on spirituality, human consciousness, prosperity, and happiness.
On page 14, learn where to find sex in the natal chart. Traditionally, sex belongs in the Fifth House, but modern astrology associates it with the Eighth House. Read Sex in the Natal Chart: Where to Find It to learn how sex ended up in the Eighth House and if it should stay there.
Also in this issue, I tackle the question of whether you can tell someone's sexual orientation from the birth chart. The short answer is, "No." For the long answer, read Five Reasons Your Birth Chart Can't Call You Gay on page 20.
Politics can be fascinating, but I'm an astrologer, not a pundit. And while I enjoy astrological political debate as much as the next person on Facebook, we must have some ground rules, at least as far as astrology is concerned. Discover Why Astrology Can't Predict the Next President on page 34. Starting on page 40, I demonstrate what astrology can do in Political Astrology: 2016 Presidential Race, when I interpret the nomination charts of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Rave Reviews for Principles of Practical Natal Astrology: Talented Astrologer Training Book 1
Mary Plumb, in her review in The Mountain Astrologer says:
“An excellent guide to astrology that is far more than a typical beginner book. Not only is Burk a skilled communicator (who has studied how people learn), he is also a funny, self-revealing fellow with an astute foundation in traditional astrology (and human psychology) … His book is an in-depth presentation that is spaciously formatted with color in the text and in the cartoons, charts, and tables. His knowledge of traditional astrology, informed by modern views of human development, and his obvious gifts as a teacher combine in this most useful training manual.”
Donna Woodwell, M.A., former Board Member of NCGR and ISAR says:
“A masterful step-by-step guide for learning traditional foundations of chart interpretation in a way that’s accessible to the modern astrologer. Brimming with tips and techniques, it’s fun and practical — the perfect addition to anyone’s astrological explorations.”
