A person’s birth chart is a map of the planetary positions at the time and place of their birth. It is a rich living statement of possibilities, full of insights, guidelines and warnings, and its knowledge points the way to a thriving, satisfying life.
In this four-week course we will learn the alphabet of astrology, consisting of signs, planets, and houses, and how to interpret the information they hold. We will look at the history of western astrology, its current use, the structure of a chart, and the basic methods of chart analysis. We’ll explore the ethics and art of astrological readings. Using your own birth chart, you’ll begin to develop a fluency with astrological language. There will be handouts and worksheets provided, as well as some light homework.
Class will meet Thursdays, February 28, March 7, 14, 21.
