Hello everyone! I'm totally new to evolutionary astrology, and astrology in general, really. I am really enjoying the material and am halfway through Part 1 of the DVDs. Problem is, I'm a bit overwhelmed with the material and feel intimidated.
. Right now I'm just focusing on being present with the lectures and reading along with the book, but it is hard to keep up because it seems that the school was geared toward people with a base knowledge in astrology and the related archetypes. I have ordered the Pluto books, part 1 and 2 and will go back and read those when I complete the courses, but I would like to know what you all would recommend as a starting point to really get the basis of astrological archetypes so I can assimilate this information better. I am also hoping that as I go along with the DVDs, things will start to make sense when we start doing chart interpretations. I'm excited about learning this wonderful methodology and look forward to hearing your advice on feedback for this newbie.
Welcome to the EA message board.
Believe you me, we all started out just like you. It may seem that everyone else is more advanced, but that is not necessarily the case. Newbies are coming in all the time. You are not alone.
Problem is, I'm a bit overwhelmed with the material and feel intimidated.
Many of us felt like this, however it is just a matter of applying yourself. It may seem like you are progressing at a snail's pace, but only through effort will you ever get there. Just keep at it, slow and steady, take it all in. It will all start to fall into place, but it will take some time. A great saying we have around here is: "The value is in the effort."

Much of the base knowledge is repeated throughout the message board and all the study materials ... for your benefit. You will also benefit directly from more advanced discussions of EA.

It is recommended that you BEGIN with reading Pluto Vol. 1 - The Evolutionary Journey of the Soul by Jeffrey Wolf Green
. This is where we all began. This book will lay the foundation for your ongoing studies. This is the book we all fell in love with ... so enjoy!
