Notebook Page of Considerations 3 & 4, by me.

Hi! I'm Nina Gryphon, an astrologer who draws. My goal is to help you become the best astrologer possible, while having fun. Once you've figured out the basics of the signs, houses, and aspects, you may well wonder how you bring it all together! Whether you are interested in natal, horary, or electional astrology, my project can help you get a complete astrological education.

I am creating an illustrated notebook of the 146 Considerations of Guido Bonatti, an essential 13th century work foundational to the astrology that followed. If you want to become an expert astrologer, you should know the 146 Considerations very well. But 13th century books can be a bit dry. My illustrated, not-too-serious, occasionally snarky notes are a guide to help you take your astrology to the next level with humor and cute animals.

What Are the Illustrated 146 Considerations?
The 146 Considerations are aphorisms, some short, some long, that teach astrological nuggets of wisdom. I take them in order and create an illustrated 9x12" notebook page, with all the aphorisms that fit. My Patrons pledge an amount for each notebook page when I release it online; I usually publish 2-3 pages per month. You can set a monthly cap on your payments, if you're worried your love for astrology+squee will get out of hand. There may already be a support group.

Will the Illustrated 146 Considerations Come Out as a Physical Book?
A number of people have asked if my illustrated Considerations will be available as a book. The answer is: I am working on it! The more money I earn via Patreon, the easier it will be to bring the book to life, so you can help accelerate the process! Watch for this new goal in the future.

Where to Read the 146 Considerations
You can read a free 17th century translation of the 146 Considerations, but I strongly recommend buying the 21st century translation by Dr. Benjamin Dykes, which is more accurate and annotated.

More About Me
I have studied and practiced astrology since about the turn of the millennium, with a special focus on the medieval and Renaissance astrological tradition. My two key teachers were John Frawley and Deborah Houlding, each of them deeply immersed in astrology as it was practiced for centuries, updated for today.

I also offer astrological consultations in horary, natal, and electional astrology. You can learn more about me and my work on Facebook and ninagryphon.com.
