Certificate: Movement and Forecasting

This certificate includes courses covering various methods of moving the chart in time, including techniques such as transits, progressions, solar arc directions, solar returns, planetary returns, profections, elections, rectification and more.

W110 and W111 are required for this certificate (20 weeks). Students can choose to take W112 and/or W113 (practicums focused on application) to fulfill the requirement of 30 weeks (the standard certificate) or 40 weeks (the extended certificate) of instruction.

This course covers major techniques for predicting major life circumstances to show the flowering of the natal chart promise.

Instructors: Carol Tebbs, Gloria Scigliano
10-week course

This is not an introductory course. Students are expected to have a working knowledge of the elements of natal chart interpretation and synthesis. 

Students will work with techniques of Western astrology from the 16th century to the present; including Solar and Lunar Eclipses; Outer Planet Transit cycles and their timing role in the activation of the natal chart. Students will also work with the techniques of Solar Arc Directions, Secondary Progressions as well as the Progressed Moon and its 3 ½ year Lunar Phases.

In this course, students work with progressed declination and chart graphics; relocation and applying transits, progressions, and directions; interpreting Synodic Cycles of planetary pairs to the natal chart and mundane charts; Solar, Lunar and other Planetary Returns; adding Transits, Progressions and Directions of planets and angles to natal asteroids and Chiron; and use the graphic function of software to track movement of all planetary factors in the commonly used 12th and 8th  harmonics.

Instructor: Carol Tebbs
10-week course

W111 continues the examination of the development of modern Western interpretive movement methods based upon planetary cycles, natural phenomena and symbolic interpretive tools from the 16th to the 21st centuries.

In a fluid, multi-national world, many clients do not have birth times, a critical piece of information needed to accurately determine houses and the timing of events. Rectification puts your knowledge and skill with techniques that move the chart in time in order to identify the most likely birth time.

Primary Instructor: Carol Tebbs.
Intensive 10-week course

The astrologer and client determine when rectification of the birth time is needed and what is to be accomplished by the search. For an accurate birth time, the dates of major life turning points should confirm the alignment of natal chart patterns to life events. If they do not, the client should provide information of specific life turning points and time range information from family sources.

How to Respond to Common Questions. Many who work with transits, progressions, directions or other methods of moving the chart in time find it difficult to synthesize all the different factors or choose the right tool to answer a specific question.
