RN102 – Fundamentals II: Interpretation Essentials – Winter 2023-24

Course Access: Lifetime
Course Overview

Course description:

Beyond basic interpretation of planets, signs, houses, and aspects, this course introduces students to techniques that clarify, or modify the chart interpretation to identify major life themes. Students learn the lineage of techniques and their modern practice, plus any controversy, to better understand the diversity of traditions in the 21st-century astrology community. The RN102 course focuses on modifying the natal planet expression, taking interpretation from “cookbook” memorization to nuanced and personalized interpretation.

By the end of RN102, students will have developed the skills necessary for evaluating chart information and identifying the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches. They will be able to synthesize the core astrological components and modify information into a coherent and meaningful interpretation without relying on outside resources.
