AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.

The best book I know of to start learning about the Kabbalah is "The Chicken Qabalah of Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford" by Lon Michael DuQuette. I presents the basics of the Kabbalah in both an easily understood and an entertaining manner. You can find the book on-line at http://www.illuminatiorderoto.com/resources/DuQuette- Chicken - Qabalah .pdf
I'd also suggest this website as a good resource: http://www.digital-brilliance.com/about/intro.php
If the fact that the spellings are often difficult is confusing, understand that the Hebrew language is phonetic which means that one can often find words spelled differently but with the same meaning. Kabbalah, Cabala, Quaballan are all the same thing.
DuQuette's book is the best introduction for Hermetic qabalah by far, however, his focus is primarily on the Hebrew letters. If it is Hermetic qabalah you are interested in "The Kabbalah of the Golden Dawn" by Pat Zalewski is a magnificent read.
Barring these options, Q.B.L. by Frater Achad is a great introduction and one can see where DuQuette drew some of his inspiration, this can be found here:
And there is this video by Lon Milo Duquette which covers many of the concepts he has written about, however, the book is of course more indepth:
A kabbalah centre will most likely teach you jewish kabbalah which is more about the mystical interpretation of scripture. This is not the sort most magical practitioners get involved in because it is not practical knowledge really, more just theoretical. A good few books for this sort would be "The Bahir" and "Sepher Yetzirah" there are many translations but I prefer Aryeh Kaplan's. Then of course "The Zohar" but that is quite a read!
You are all over the place river,lol
You are truly going to confuse yourself
Jumping from Witchcraft to Hoodoo to Kaballah in a month is a lot on the Brain,why don't You get a book on general Basics and focus on that and in the meantime study paths online
Until something clicks
I can't help it!! I like to read and know everything lol. I did get a general book, but I was like "Eh." I'm just looking around if something truly makes me enlighten to learn more. Thank you for the link, I'll def use it!
I get You,I'm Exactly the same way
And like you I bounced around so much in the beginning
It set me back years of practice because I just kept reading,learning on and on,finally Dion Fortune in one of her books
Said beginners need to find one working system and stick with it u til they master it,then add on and move on
So that was what I did and that's how I became an actual practicing Mage and not just an avid reader.
