This course provides students with astrological tools that can enhance their life by exploring their personal local landscape. While Astro*Carto*Graphy examines the interaction of the natal chart and planetary lines of influence across the globe, local space astrology brings the focus close to home.
Students will learn how to use and combine topographical maps, compass directions, and a local horizon chart in order to develop a living system within their immediate environment.
Students will also learn practical methods of using these local space techniques in their home or work in a manner similar to Feng Shui. Combining local space with the natal chart, transits, progressions, solar returns, and solar arcs can lead to innovative methods of enhancing or balancing one’s own local space to create a balanced and harmonious personal environment.
What is the basis of Local Space Astrology? As you move around your local horizon (with your feet grounded on the earth), different planets and aspects are highlighted. Local space techniques involve viewing and understanding natal directional planetary locations and indications using angularity, shifting aspect patterns in relationship to angles, and planetary altitude. (You will understand this sentence by the end of the course!)
