Hellenistic Astrology

In the past two decades, the translations of dozens of astrological texts from the Hellenistic, Arabic, and Medieval periods have sparked a renewed interested in traditional astrology and precipitated a renaissance in astrological thinking. This three-module course provides a practical step by step program for developing proficiency in the doctrines, techniques and methods of the traditional astrology of the Hellenistic era. You will practice applying the principles in chart analysis and discuss ways to make these ancient concepts relevant the mindset and experiences of the modern person. Teachings on the history, philosophy, mythology, and language of the antiquity are incorporated into each lesson.

The program begins with the Hellenistic view of planets, signs, houses, aspects, and special solar and lunar phenomena in order to determine the capacity and condition of each planet to bring about the matters it represents. Concepts such as sect, gender, benefic/malefic natures, four systems of zodiacal rulerships (domicile, exaltation, trigon, bound), whole sign and quadrant house systems, angularity, joys, configurations, testimony, witnessing, casting and hurling rays, bonification and maltreatment, spear-bearing guardians, under the beams, retrogradation, solar phase, heliacal rise/set will be investigated in detail. This is followed by a unit on identifying the planets that rule the nativity as a whole in terms of the overall success, fortune, and esteem, and destination of the life. The final module explains many Hellenistic timing procedures that have been lost to modern practice due to omissions in translation. These include timing by planetary periods and ascensional times of the signs, profections, solar returns, circumambulations, and zodiacal releasing from fortune and spirit.

Each module in this series consists of six lessons; each lesson includes written material, a one-hour private instructional and tutoring session via telephone, and homework which is evaluated. The students proceed at their own paces.

Mythic Asteroid Signatures

For students of all levels, this course focuses on the integration of the asteroids into chart delineation, approaching the process from an archetypal and mythological perspective. You will learn how to determine which asteroids are most important in any given chart and how their mythic themes contribute to the shaping of the life experience. The program begins with an exploration of the first four asteroids Ceres, Pallas, Juno and Vesta, investigating their mythology, psychology, and astrological meaning in the birth chart. Subsequent modules investigate how to work with the 12,000 other asteroids by uncovering motifs depicted by categories of asteroids associated with divination, healing, creative inspiration, fate, love & relationship, philosophy & knowledge, and clusters from the cultures of Greece, Rome, Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, and Celtic and Germanic worlds. We will also incorporate the significance of asteroids named after concepts, geographical places, and personal common names.

The students will use charts of persons they know who are willing to give them feedback on their delineations. Each module in this series consists of six lessons; each lesson includes written material, a one-hour instructional and tutoring session via telephone, and homework which is evaluated. The students proceed at their own paces.

Cost: $600 per one 6-week module.
