The mythology of the Greco-Roman gods is our foundation for understanding the meaning of the planets and the basis of our astrology.
Instructor: Inga Thornell
The Greco-Roman Gods have not been worshipped in any official capacity for over 2000 years, and yet this mythology is the foundation for much of the allusion, characters and literary forms in Western literature. We still refer to people as jovial, junoesque, or to music as martial. What keywords can we discover as we read the god's stories and try to understand them from a more astrological point of view?
This five-week course will focus on individual gods, their attributes, spheres of influence, and their interactions with each other and with human beings to develop an understanding of the origins of the astrological keywords and meanings we rely on for interpretation.
