The Greco-Roman gods are our foundation for understanding the Olympian gods and goddesses, the basis of our astrology.

This five-week course will focus on individual gods — their attributes, spheres of influence, and their interactions with each other and with human beings—to develop an understanding of the origins of the astrological keywords and meanings we rely on for interpretation.

The links between mythology and astrology are deeper than just the names of the gods and the signs. Knowing more about our heritage and our antecedents can deepen not only our appreciation but also the practice of our astrological art and science.
