What You’ll Learn

The ancient astrologers considered the Moon to be the mediator of heaven and earth, the ״key to the whole sky,” and the “nurse of generations.” The importance of the Lunar doctrine to any field of astrology cannot be disregarded.  Furthermore, the Hellenistic astrological texts reveal a very elaborate and intricate system of definitions and considerations concerning the Moon, combining its phases, applications and separations, its pre-natal lunation, and much more.

In this four-hour workshop, you will learn the ancient multi-level system of considerations in analyzing the Moon’s placement in a chart. We look at ancient models of lunar phases and modes of rulership, building our way to the intricate doctrine of application and separation, with all its different categories and nuances. We will also deepen our understanding of the Moon’s cosmological and philosophical role and its traditional significations.
