Welcome!

I hope you find something interesting and informative on the pages inside. I have a passion for astrology that began at age 5!  I have studied many forms of astrology and Western Karmic Astrology and Evolutionary Astrology are my favorite so far.  Since astrology is an ever expanding wisdom there’s always a new idea or perspective on the horizon.

Through the years I’ve noticed the most challenging aspect of astrology for beginners is where to start.  Studying the twelve signs is the best place to begin so each month I provide the current placement for the Sun, but every sign is also applied to the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and a plethora of other astral bodies, as well as the houses that make up a horoscope. Learning the twelve signs is quite simple and will open up a whole new way to see the world. Everything has a birth: your home, your car, your cat and, of course, you!

In addition to posting the sign of the month, I will also be writing about simple upcoming celestial events like Eclipses, Retrogrades, New and Full Moons, and Solstices and Equinoxes to add a little spice to the month and make learning astrology a little bit more interesting.  I’ll post these on my Facebook page as well.  If you’d like to join the site, please go to Jo’Ann Ruhl and you’ll get any monthly updates instantly
