registerIf you already know some astrology, this course is designed to help develop the tools you need to create your own insightful interpretation without reaching for someone else's opinion.

If you find the chart just isn't talking to you and you cannot figure out how to put it together ...
If you know some astrology but still find yourself reaching for other people's interpretations of a planets, sign, house or aspect ...
If you find yourself thinking you need yet another technique to make sense of the chart ...

This course will help. At the end of 5 weeks, you will be able to create your own chart interpretations that are solid and grounded in the symbols of the chart itself.

Start date: July 20, 2019
LIVE MEETINGS: Saturdays 3-5 pm PDT / 6-8 pm EDT
2 optional live 1-hour labs on Wednesdays at 5:30 PDT / 8:30 EDT that are focused on reading charts

Everything in astrology flows from the fundamental components of the chart: planets, signs, houses and aspects. This course gives students a chance to ground their understanding of these symbols. The focus is on learning to synthesize the core basics into a layered interpretation.

registerAre planets better behaved in some signs than others? In an opposition, what planet is most likely to win the tug of war? Are mutual receptions always nice? The key to answer these questions and many more is understanding dignities and debilities.

TIME:  From 9:00-11:00 am Pacific Time / 12:00-2:00 am Eastern Time

The traditional astrology tool of dignity and debility is a powerful and nuanced way to add detail to your chart interpretation. But many astrologers do not realize how effective and useful this tool can be or they think it is simply archaic and overly complicated. Nothing could be further from the truth!

The goal of this class is to show how you can reclaim this effective tool.

registerWhat does astrology tell us about our soul's calling that helps us understand what we are meant to do?

The essence of the soul’s journey is the discovery of a larger sense of who we are and how we live in the world. In ordinary experience, our primary interactions with the world are through our daily work, our job or career. But this may not be the same as being "called" to a particular type of action or work. Sometimes the soul's calling is quiet; sometimes it is a demand that is triggered by grief or other traumas in our lives. The soul's calling asks us to trod a path that can transform ourselves and our world. Whether or how we act upon that call that is our soul’s “vocation.” This course explores how astrology can help us understand our soul's journey.
