Learning to read a birth chart—to understand the patterns and interactions of the planets at the moment we were born—can be daunting, especially when studying astrology through traditional systems.

Presenting a simple way to learn astrology, professional astrologer and astropsychologist Alison Chester-Lambert breaks down the complexities of a birth chart into easy-to-understand pieces, revealing how to quickly decode a person’s strengths, weaknesses, challenges, and opportunities with psychological astrology. Simply noting the Masculine–Feminine balance of Zodiac Signs in a chart can already reveal much about a person. Focusing on Zodiac Signs and Houses, Alison explains how to interpret the Ascendant, or Rising Sign, in a birth chart as well as the meaning of each House and which Element it is ruled by. In addition, with each of the four Elements of Fire, Earth, Air, and Water ruling over specific Zodiac Signs, we can get insight into individual personality traits based on the Elements present in a birth chart. Personality keywords for each Element help shed light on the motivation behind a person’s actions and choices.

With psychological astrology not only revealing the spiritual structure of the Cosmos but also the intricacies of human behavior, this guide will enable you to begin reading charts right away.

Raves and Reviews

“Concentrating solely on Signs and Houses makes total sense, and it’s fun, too. Alison’s casual and entertaining style of writing takes the reader by the hand and allays any fears of a supposedly complex subject. What you get is in-depth knowledge of the twelve zodiac signs, including polarities, elements, and qualities, plus the workings and meanings of the two main axes, quadrants, and twelve houses in the chart. As an introduction to astrology, this is a great book.”

– KARIN HOFFMANN, editor for Astrodienst on

“Alison taught me astrology using this system and it immediately clicked. Now I am a paid astrological influencer on YouTube. I highly recommend it to reach professional status.”

– PENNY DIX, astrologer and psychotherapist
