Welcome to Astrology Bytes, the astrology podcast for people who want to learn astrology… but don’t have all day! Short, bite-sized astrology lessons.

Episode 152: Planets on the First with Tara Aal

This week, evolutionary astrologer Tara Aal joins me to talk about “Planets on the First,” a technique where you choose a planet as a focal point and rotate the chart to place that planet on the Ascendant. You then experience that planet for a while and see how it manifests in your life. This allows for a deeper relationship with the planet and personal growth. Tara shares her experience working with Venus so you can get an idea of how this technique works in real life. I’m fascinated and cannot wait to test this out!
