Astrological Fundamentals: Movement

Astrological Fundamentals: Movement

One of the fascinating aspects of astrology is the proposition that we can understand events by using techniques to move the chart through time.

“As the art of prognosis, astrology utilizes planetary movements for predicting the quality, meaning, and duration of specific time periods. Rather than simply describing event-outcomes, however, planetary movements can be depicted as windows of opportunity for the actualization of natal potentials. Concrete events both reflect and serve as catalysts for changes in awareness; thus, planetary movements can provide insight into the precise timing of developmental processes, allowing us to appreciate how inner and outer reality coincide, reflect, and transform each other.”

[Glenn Perry article, “Nine Essential Features of Archetypal Cosmology”, www.aaperry.com]

There are many, many methods for moving the natal chart in time to interpret current patterns; some of these techniques are standard “go to”, and many others are more specialized. Nearly everyone who learns about astrology wants to know whether it can help with various life situations. The first two in this series of courses (W110 and W111) will help develop your ability to use a broad range of techniques to best show the possibilities at hand. To receive a Certificate aknowledging your work in Moving the Chart, you would add a third course, choosing between W112 which uses these techniques to try find the most likely birth time when one isn't available or W113 which uses these techniques to try determine the most likely issues that may arise at a particular time in the future.

 

Primary Instructor: Carol Tebbs, Gloria Scigliano

This is not an introductory course. Students are expected to have a working knowledge of the elements of natal chart interpretation and synthesis. 

The W110 course examines the development of modern Western interpretive methods of movement based upon planetary cycles, natural phenomena and symbolic interpretive tools from the 16th to the 21st centuries.

Primary Instructor: Carol Tebbs

Prerequisite: A working knowledge of the fundamentals of natal interpretation and synthesis as well as the W110 movement methods.

W111 continues the examination of the development of modern Western interpretive movement methods based upon planetary cycles, natural phenomena and symbolic interpretive tools from the 16th to the 21st centuries.

Primary Instructor: Carol Tebbs
Prerequisite: A solid knowledge of astrology fundamentals and W110 or proof of equivalent training in movement techniques

In a fluid, multi-national world, many clients do not have birth times, a critical piece of information needed to accurately determine the chart Angles and houses and the accurate timing of events. Rectification challenges the student’s knowledge and skill with all movement techniques to derive the most likely birth time.

In practice, the astrologer and client determine when rectification of the birth time is needed and what is to be accomplished by the search. The dates of several major life turning points should confirm the alignment of natal chart patterns to known life events. Advanced astrology software that can search various movement methods is highly recommended, such as: Solar Fire 8 or 9, Kepler, Sirius, Pegasus, Time Passages, and others. Jigsaw (a research program) is not required.

Instructors: Kenneth Miller and Tamira McGillivray
prerequisite: W110 or proof of equivalent training

Many who work with transits, progressions, directions or other methods of moving the chart in time find it difficult to synthesize all the different factors or choose the right tool to answer a specific question. This course provides practice in synthesis. Students will receive guided practice in using various movement techniques to interpret activated areas of the natal chart to help the client understand current themes and life events as well as their own potential for action and growth.

This course will help you refine your skills and gain confidence in your interpretations.
