Introduction to Harmonic Aspects

Introduction to Harmonic Aspects

This course revisits the theoretical basis and the evolution of aspects in astrology, presenting harmonic aspects in a practical and usable framework.

Relying on astrological basics with concepts from sacred geometry, students will be taught to integrate aspects based upon non-zodiacal relationships, including quintiles, septiles, octiles, noviles and more.

These harmonic aspects widen the astrological palette and enable the astrologer to quickly find previously hidden dimensions of personality.
