This system is known as the Cycle or Turning of the Year. Instead of just using a Solar Return, this method was prepared yearly for each birthday. It has its roots in Hellenistic astrology, came to full flower in the Arabic and Persian eras, and persisted through the late Classical period of Lilly and his contemporaries. Ben Dykes' translation of Abu Mashar's On Solar Revolutions in Persian Nativities 3 is a full exposition of this system.

INSTRUCTOR: Nina Gryphon

TIME: 9:00 - 11:00 AM Pacific Time / 12:00 - 2:00 pm Eastern Time

This five-week class will teach the theory, methods, and practical application of astrological magic, as practiced in the West and Middle East for the past two thousand years. Historic astrological magic has only been fully rediscovered in the past two decades as older astrological and magical texts were translated into modern languages. We will rely heavily on important magical texts such as the Picatrix (10th century Arabic magical text), the 2000-year-old Greek Magical Papyri, and other medieval and Renaissance texts that teach magical methods. Astrological magic has been growing in popularity due to its effectiveness compared to modern styles of magic, which do not utilize astrology, and are therefore missing the crucial time factor. 

registerMany astrologers have heard the term Uranian Astrology, but do you know how useful it can be?

Begins Oct 26 (5-weeks)
Live online meetings on Saturdays from 9:00-11:00 PDT 

The sub-title of the Uranian classic by Witte and Lefeldt, "Rules for Planetary Pictures," is The Astrology of Tomorrow and in many respects this system has come of age with the advent of modern astrological tools such as Nova Chartwheels.

registerWhat can we tell from an astrological chart about the soul and potential past lives? It's a really good question and astrologers have been finding answers since ancient Greece. This course looks at the intersection of ideas about the soul and astrological interpretation from ancient to modern. Each week, students will have a chance to work with a different technique, applying it to their own charts and the charts of others. 

The latest incarnation of the Recurring and Evolving Soul emphasizes astrological techniques along with a deeper understanding of karma. Topics covered: 

1. Planets are divine (or at least they are people)! 
The Western tradition: karma and metempsychosis
Meeting the characters
The ascent and descent of the soul
Talking to your planets
