This course is an AUDIT Course. No academic credit will be awarded. If you would like to change your focus to a Certificate/Diploma program, you will need to take the RN102 challenge test to be awarded a credit.
This course moves the student beyond the basics to distinguishing how chart components are modified for each individual, including spotting major life themes. By the end, students will know the important areas of practice and controversy in the course topics and understand the basis of many specialized interpretive techniques. They will also be able to critically question and/or evaluate the rationale of authors and workshop or conference presenters on their methods for natal chart interpretation.
- Explore the historical roots and the philosophical purposes for natal chart interpretation
- Compare house systems to help identify those more suited to regular use and others that are more situation-specific
- Identify lunation phases and their natal chart interpretation
- Examine the foundation of all aspects, including the minor aspects
- Explore major life themes through close aspect networks, aspect configurations and declination
- Personalize interpretation by using sensitive points such as the nodes, the vertex, part of fortune, part of spirit, solstice points, pre-natal eclipse, decans and dwads, and the Aries point
- Explore how major asteroids, dwarf planets and fixed stars can affect the interpretation
By the end of W102, students will know the important areas of practice and controversy in the course topics and will be able to understand the basis of many specialized interpretive techniques. Most lessons are “must know” supplements to the basics; some lessons introduce less well-known topics to help students understand techniques and methodologies they may wish to pursue independently. The goal is for students to be able to critically
question and/or evaluate the rationale and methodology of astrological authors as well as presenters that students will encounter at conferences, workshops or online.
