Course description

This workshop focuses on building interpretative skills. The goal is to present students with core techniques they can use to bridge the gap between a general knowledge of astrological symbols and the specifics of an individual natal chart. By the end, students will see how to successfully layer different considerations into a coherent and insightful interpretation.

All interpretation begins by building on our understanding of the core symbols in the chart. Students will review the meanings for the planets, signs, and houses as well as the patterns they create in an individual chart. The function of each planet, sign and house is stripped to its core to more easily see how different astrologers and types of astrology have inserted new concepts. This enables students to better evaluate whether they agree with these additions.

Students will tie these basics into a broader reflection of the whole individual by adding in dispositors and dispositor patterns, the major aspects, and the four major dignities and debilities. These additions allow the astrologer to see how even single planet, through its interactions, will challenge or assist in multiple areas of an individual's life.

Weekly topics:

1.    The heart of interpretation

2.    Planets rule and signs describe

3.    Containers: The Quadrants and Astrological Houses

4.    Practice!

5.    Making connections: Aspects, Dignities and Dispositor Patterns

6.    Putting it together

If desired, students who pass the final exam can directly enter into the Certificate Program with W102 Fundamentals II.

All related documents are assembled under each section (week 1 to 6). Our instructor, Ms. Enid Newberg, highlighted every each important topic that we, the students, have to know. We had a fabulously great instructor.
