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 Instructors: Karen McCauley and Inga Thornell. Guests have included Claudia Dikinis, Bob Glasscock and Donna Van Toen. 

In this course, students will be introduced to considerations involved in astrological counseling, and to the process of working on relationship issues with clients, including finding relationships in the chart, organizing a session, methods of delivering content, ethical issues and referral strategies.

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.

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.
