Fundamentals I: Intro to Astrology

Fundamentals I: Intro to Astrology

This course is designed for students who know the very basics of astrology and/or want to solidify the astrological knowledge they have already gained on their own. The astrological chart will be taken apart in order for students to clearly understand how each set of symbols functions and how their interaction provides the basis of interpretation. Students in this course will not only build a solid understanding of the basics of astrology but learn how to immediately apply what they learn to chart interpretation, even if there is no birth time.

Topics covered include: 

  • An introduction to the astronomical underpinnings of the astrological chart
  • Exploration of the interplay between astronomy and the astrological meanings of the planets; comparing meanings from Hellenistic to modern; and an introduction to the mythology and archetypal meaning of the planets.
  • Introduction to natal retrograde planets and meaning.
  • Understanding the big picture by working with elements, modes, and polarities; the hemispheres and quadrants, and Marc Edmund Jones modern chart patterns.
  • Examining the construction of meaning within the astrological signs.
  • Introduction to the astrological houses and how they are created; the meanings of the houses and their changes over time; how to use the houses to enhance an interpretation.
  • Introduction to the major aspects.
  • Introduction to basic dignities, debilities, and dispositor trees to help hone chart interpretation.
  • Layering all this together to create your own interpretation without any outside resource

 

By the end, students will have a solid understanding of the planets and how the signs and houses modify their meaning. They will learn to evaluate what planets are highlighted in the chart based on their placement by sign and house, basic dignities, and their interaction through aspects and dispositors. They will be able to synthesize this information into a basic coherent and meaningful interpretation without relying on outside resources.
