This course moves the student beyond the basics of interpreting planets, signs, houses and aspects to where students can distinguish how these components are modified for each individual. Students are encouraged to critically consider the various techniques through a discussion of their strengths and weaknesses as well as any controversies surrounding them. Guided practice each week in “Live Chat” refines the process of spotting major life themes in the natal chart.

This course is designed for those who are curious about what astrologers do, or those who want to solidfy the astrological knowledge they have already gained on their own. The astrological chart will be taken apart in order for students to clearly understand how each area of symbolism functions and how their interaction provides information for interpretation.
The objective for this course is ensure students have learned the basics of astrological symbolism and be on their way to successfully synthesizing that knowledge to interpret a chart, even if there is no birth time. To accomplish this goal, the following areas will be covered:
The cultivation of soul is the key to human flourishing and happiness, in this life and in future lifetimes. This is a basic truth held by wisdom traditions of all kinds – Eastern and Western, ancient and contemporary – yet this means different things in different traditions.
This course considers a range of astrological techniques and methods that share a common principle – symmetry. Uranian Astrology and the use of midpoints are obvious examples. But there are many other common techniques such as the distribution of elements and qualities, traditional rulerships and anticia that also use symmetrical principles.
