  • Characteristics of effective and ineffective astrologers
  • Practice with multiple approaches to the delineation of the chart
  • Learning to identify personal filters and those related to the natal chart
  • Techniques for blending chart components such as the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant
  • Identifying and using essential and accidental dignities to differentiate between expressions of planetary essence and strength in the natal chart
  • Learning how to differentiate the quality of aspects through consideration of variations in planetary relationships by their nature and placement in the chart
  • Learning how dispositors, time lords, planetary speed, and derivative houses can enhance chart interpretation
