The Hellenistic Astrological texts reveal a very elaborate and intricate system of definitions and considerations concerning the Moon, combining its phases, applications and separations, its pre - natal lunation and much more.
In this workshop we will learn the ancient multi-level system of considerations in the analyses of the moon's placement in a chart. We will look at ancient models of lunar phases and modes of rulership, building our way to the intricate doctrine of application and separation, with all its different categories and nuances. We will also deepen our understanding of the Moon’s cosmological and philosophical role and its traditional significations.
