What can we tell from an astrological chart about the soul and potential past lives? It's a really good question and astrologers have been finding answers since ancient Greece. This course looks at the intersection of ideas about the soul and astrological interpretation from ancient to modern. Each week, students will have a chance to work with a different technique, applying it to their own charts and the charts of others. 

Instructors: Enid Newberg and Joseph Crane
5-week course

The latest incarnation of the Recurring and Evolving Soul emphasizes astrological techniques along with a deeper understanding of karma. Topics covered: 

1. Planets are divine (or at least they are people)! 
The Western tradition: karma and metempsychosis
Meeting the characters
The ascent and descent of the soul
Talking to your planets

Anyone learning astrology knows how challenging it is to make sense of the chart as a whole. This course uses a modern scientific theory to make this easier.

How do we find meaning? Systems theorist Gregory Bateson famously answered this question by stating that meaning is the pattern that connects. Astrologers understand this. It is only by finding the patterns of the chart that we can synthesize our interpretations into a deeper meaning.

At the end of this course, you will be able to assess a chart for clients in a way that helps them to succeed in the fulfillment of their life’s purpose.

COURSE BEGINS February 1, 2020

Vocational astrology is the assessment and advisement of the potential work-related and purpose fulfilling features of life. In this process, the cycles of unfolding are used to inform the client – and ourselves – about life direction and timing. This course explores the practice of astrology as it relates to the professions, and as a tool for advisement. At the core is the process of making recommendations for the choice of profession, education, and the variations that take place at different stages of life. Business planning such as incorporation, marketing, and contract signing is included.

Evolutionary Astrology provides a deep perspective on chart analysis, using the chart to identify the soul’s evolutionary journey through reincarnation.

Learning this approach to chart interpretation will not only allow students to identify character, skills, potential, and challenges but understand “why” things happen a certain way in our lives. This helps with guiding potential clients to identify root causes for existing patterns in their lives.

The greatest collection of works on the soul and, surprisingly, its intersection with astrological concepts, come from traditional religions. And where else can you explore the Torah, New Testament and the Koran and discuss astrology?

Literature has long been the vehicle to establish and maintain cultural identity through stories of origin, heroes and history. These stories in time become mythology or even codified sacred literature. You may not realize, but the three primary Western religions all have astrology embedded in their sacred works. If you have an interest in spiritual traditions or do soul work with your clients, take advantage of this unique course now! You won't find anything like it anywhere else! 

The greatest collection of works on the soul come from traditional religions, which includes views on astrology.

The sacred works from the East include an acceptance of a relationship between the cosmos and life on earth. There is a wealth of information and perspectives that can be useful in our astrological practice and when working with clients. The course introduces students to common themes found in selections from the sacred and canonized literature of three major Eastern world religions.

Chart calculation can pretty daunting. This course helps make it easier.

There is a trade-off in having the benefit of computers to calculate an astrological chart. Chart Calculation gives students a deeper understanding of how the chart relates to the movements of the earth and sky, which aids chart interpretation.

Instructor: Enid Newberg
Guided Independent Study course - up to six months for completion

The first portion of this course covers the process of calculating a natal chart. Students will learn to calculate charts from time zones around the world, as well as in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. The second portion of the course adds additional calculation techniques, including the lots.

The course is organized for independent self-study and with three meetings during the term for students to directly ask questions. Students can also request 1-hour of private tutoring.

Subcategories

Most of our course offerings focus on the most common aspects of modern astrological practice. But there are additional unique traditions that have a different perspective and/or philosophical underpinning that astrologers incorporate into their practice. This includes Esoteric Astrology (originally developed by Alice Bailey or the Church of Light), Evolutionary Astrology (originally developed by Jeffrey Wolf Green and Steven Forrest), Uranian/Symmetrical Astrology (developed in the early 20th century), Astro*Carto*Graphy (developed by Jim Lewis) and  Astromapping, Hellenistic Astrology, Medieval Astrology and Indian Astrology. 

This certificate requires 30 weeks from a range of courses focused on these traditions.

Astromapping is the art of using the astrological chart to determine a good place to live or even the best way to structure one's local environment (similar to Fung Shui).  Astro*Carto*Graphy is the art of using the natal chart to determine what areas of world support or challenge the natal planet positions. Local Space astrology uses the natal chart to interact with your local environment so that it supports who you are. Like Feng Shui, you can use these techniques even to the level of an individual room in your house.

The Astromapping certificate requires 20 weeks of instruction and includes the 10-week course WL220 Astro*Carto*Graphy, and two 5-week courses - WL221A Local Space and WL221B Astromapping Practicum.

Astrological counseling has unique features. This certificate requires 30 weeks of instruction. It provides students with a solid foundation of the considerations, issues, and ethics of astrological counseling and the ability to work with clients in the most common area of practice:

  • relationships,
  • one's own capacity for and style of giving and receiving love, and
  • the interactions of lovers, spouses, parents and children, and the family itself.

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).

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.
