Certificate: Fundamentals of Natal Astrology

This certificate focuses on building skills for natal chart interpretation. The required courses provide students with the skills they need to successfully interpret a natal chart, an understanding of many of the types of tools they can use (and any controversies surrounding them) and a consideration of the ethical issues involved. It gives students a broad enough view that they can also understand the different approaches available for interpretation (such as traditional, modern, or evolutionary) so they can decide for themselves what direction interests them further.

The standard certificate (30 weeks) requires W101, W102, and W103. The extended certificate (40 weeks of instruction) requires the natal chart practicum, W104, which hones student's ability to work with common client questions (based on actual client charts and issues).

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

This course is designed for those who are curious about what astrologers do, or those who want to solidfy the astrological knowledge they have already gained on their own. The astrological chart will be taken apart in order for students to clearly understand how each set of symbols functions and how their interaction provides the basis of interpretation.

Instructors: Enid Newberg and Donna Young
10-week course

The objective of this course is to ensure students have learned the basics of astrological symbolism and be on their way to successfully synthesizing that knowledge to interpret a chart, even if there is no birth time. To accomplish this goal, the following areas will be covered:

This course adds tools to help students distinguish how the core components of a chart are modified for each individual. Students are encouraged to critically consider the various techniques through a discussion of their strengths and weaknesses as well as any controversies surrounding them. Guided practice each week in “Live Chat” refines the process of spotting major life themes in the natal chart.

Instructors: Carol Tebbs, Enid  Newberg
10-week course

The primary focus in this course is the practical application of what the student has learned. A good astrologer must not only know techniques but be able to reflect upon their own world view, assumptions and other personal filters. Students will also actively consider and discuss potential client issues and ethical considerations. In addition, students get guidance in how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to delineation by examining how multiple astrologers approach chart interpretation.

Instructors: Karen McCauley and Inga Thornell.
10-week course

Students will be challenged to explore their own personal filters, attitudes, and beliefs as they develop their chart interpretation skills. They will actively consider and discuss potential client issues and ethical considerations. In addition, students get guidance on how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to delineation by examining how multiple astrologers approach chart interpretation.

For many students, there is a large jump between knowing all the pieces and putting them together for a client. If you find synthesis a struggle, then this course is for you.  Students will focus on finding basic themes, answers, and interpretations using the natal chart to address client issues.

Instructors: Karen McCauley, Inga Thornell
