Welcome to the website of Charlie Obert, student of astrology. I have a monthly blog here, along with other writing, information about my book, and some learning resources from my classes and study groups.
My first book on traditional astrology was published in Spring 2015. It has been well received, and has gotten good reviews, including in Mountain Astrologer and Dell Horoscope. Please see the page for more information about my book, An Introduction to Traditional Natal Astrology.
Note:The book is now available in both softcover and PDF electronic download format.
Here is a link to a free webinar on Aspects, Seeing and Aversion that I presented for Kepler College in October 2015.
I have a blog, aka journal, where will be posting new entries roughly once a month, as the Spirit moves me. I will be exploring what it is like to practice astrology in a world where there is no single accepted system of astrology – what the issues are, and how different schools of astrology can communicate and learn from each other. I also explore where astrology intersects with philosophy, ethics, linguistics, psychology, and other disciplines that look at how we humans use symbol systems to make sense of the world we inhabit.
I am a philosophy major, and I think it important that we astrologers take time to examine what kind of world our work assumes, and what are the implied values of that world. This page, my Credo, lays out my beliefs.
I now have a page dedicated to my writing on the planet Saturn, with special emphasis on the subject of Saturn as feminine and Old Crone. Saturn is Lord of my personal chart and is a special area of interest of mine.
The following sections are available under the Resources Menu.
Under Traditional you will find handouts that are used in my ongoing Traditional astrology study group..
Under Modern are resources that are useful if you are studying for NCGR certification. This includes chart calculation instructions, and instructions for finding the Adjusted Calculation Date (ACD) for secondary progressions.
Under Uranian you can find 90 degree and 360 degree dials, and other related material.
