Melanie, at the age of 9, I was a depressed and confused child. Astrology found me then, and suddenly I knew there were answers as to how everything and everyone worked and why. I was surprised that no one seemed to know about astrology or recognize its use. My parents attempted to take it away from me and the majority of people I met as I grew ridiculed me for “believing” it and challenged me to “prove it”, but would not listen. But I have stood my ground and held the space for people like you. I am so happy to see astrology becoming popular and accepted now, and I always feel excited and happy when I meet someone like you, who has also found astrology. There is no end to the depth of learning. I have studied it for nearly 50 years, and there is always more. Welcome!
