Instructor: Erin Sullivan 

Our planetary system is embedded in the global and individual psyche, in the brain as receptors, and in the world brain as an archetypal experience.

In this course, students will examine planetary archetypes and archetypal characteristics, including those discussed in the works of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell. We will discover how these appear experientially and psychologically in both natal charts and mundane charts of the collective. The identifiable archetypal influences useful to modern astrological practice will also be explored and applied.

We can trace the origins of the astrological planets to the classical gods. Their realms both classically and psychologically are a reflection of the realm of the archetypal. Planets do not make us “do” anything, but they seem to be remarkably in collusion with the archetypes of the deep Self.

The planets, as archetypes, are ambassadors from our deep core-Self to our reality world – from the archaic archetypes to their most personal expressions; from the Global ethos, to our Society/Culture, to our Family and, ultimately, to YOU.

Using a chart to determine an individual's psychological temperament has ancient origins. This course applies that knowledge to better understand children.

A number of modern astrologers wonder why there is a big push for ancient astrology. Our current methods work great. But many older methods have been lost because no one was interested in translating ancient astrological techniques. But this changed beginning in the late 1970s, particularly with the work of Robert Hand, Robert Zollar and Robert Schmidt and with today's translators like Benjamin Dykes. We now have enough information to start testing older methods and determining what is or is not useful. Once you get used to some new vocabulary, it turns out there is a wealth of new tools and approaches that we can readily use today.

Instructor: Charles Obert

Both we and our clients often have specific questions we hope astrology can answer or at least provide insight. Dignities and debilities are an effective tool to provide a more nuanced answer than "looks like stressful times ahead" or other general statements about the condition of a chart. This course takes you deeper into the use of dignities and debilites to improve your interpretative and predictive skills.
