Welcome to the Basic Astrology Pages. If you find all of this a bit confusing, These pages are designed to give you a basic understanding of what you are reading. It’s not surprising. Astrology is like any other specialized language, filled with more than its share of confusing words.
But here is a quick guide: Mercury in Libra in the 11th House. Planet/Sunsign/Location/relationship with other planets is the usual way these things go. Mercury (Everyday intellect) in Libra (balance and harmony) in the 11th (groups). Summing up, this is a person who is inclined to be group-minded and looking for a group that is balanced.
So First The Planets:
Then the Signs
Next the houses
Then the interrelationships.
