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.
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.
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: Karen McCauley and Inga Thornell.
The primary focus in this course is the practical application of what the student has learned. A good astrologer must not only know techniques but be able to reflect upon their own world view, assumptions and other personal filters. Students will also actively consider and discuss potential client issues and ethical considerations. In addition, students get guidance in how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to delineation by examining how multiple astrologers approach chart interpretation.
