W104 Fundamentals IV: Natal Practicum

Instructors: Karen McCauley, Inga Thornell

Students who have completed this course will receive an extended Fundamentals Certificate.

For many students, there is a large jump between knowing all the pieces and putting them together for a client. If you find synthesis a struggle, then this course is for you.  Students will focus on finding basic themes, answers and interpretations using the natal chart to address client issues.

By the end of this course, students will increase confidence in their interpretation skills, be better able to identify major life issues, and be able to focus on answering specific questions raised by clients.

Students will:

  • Explore various ways to enter and explore natal charts depending on the questions that clients present.
  • Have the opportunity to use and improve their critical thinking skills.
  • Use who, what, where, when and how questions to identify key issues in the chart.
  • Examine and refine different ways to integrate the Sun, Moon and Ascendant factors in the chart.
  • Locate major themes in the life.
  • Use methods to explore and identify issues in relationships, employment, health, etc. via the natal chart.
  • Understand the principal ethical issues connected with astrological sessions.

Students in this highly interactive 10-week course will meet online weekly to work on delineation. They will also have a course website for further materials and discussion.

Anyone is welcome to take this course. Students wanting to take the course for credit will need to complete weekly discussion forums and assignments.
