Additional Updates and Information Section

For now, I am in the beginning stages of the new website. Most of the links/menu do not redirect anywhere. The basic webdesign initially will be in the basic Blog/Journal format, allowing for easy addition of articles and information. Gradually, some articles and pieces from Lunar Living Astrology will be brought/moved over here. I hope to have a learning board "ChartRoom" set up where lessons can be discussed and explained. I want to start small and grow into the best astrology learning website possible. In the meantime, you can always find me at Lunar Living Astrology. [J McCaul]
