E208 – Asteroid Goddesses and Chiron – Winter 2023-24
This course is a study of the four main asteroid goddesses—Ceres, Pallas, Vesta, and Juno—how they relate to the expression of feminine energy, and what they have in common with Chiron, the wounded warrior. All five of these asteroids involve some form of grief and healing. This course is intended to address issues of grief as well as several dimensions commonly referred to as “women’s issues” in the charts of both men and women.
The four Asteroid Goddesses and Chiron have an important role to play in identifying and healing past traumas that continue to affect the lives of individuals. The course covers:
The feminine principles and characteristics of each asteroid goddess and how they are expressed in natal charts
The natal wound and its healing, as indicated by Chiron.
How the speed of the orbits of the asteroids affects the timing of events
Understanding how the principles and characteristics of the Asteroid Goddesses are expressed from the feminine perspective in both male and female charts.
Recognizing the type of grief associated with Chiron and each Asteroid Goddess
Identifying times of stress, as indicated by their transits, when related suffering, grief, and/or healing are likely to occur.
Identifying and healing wounds between the charts of individuals in relationship
This course requires skill in understanding the natal chart, secondary and directed charts, and how transits affect events in the life of an individual. The Kepler fundamentals and movement/prediction courses or equivalent learning needs to have been completed.
