New Update: Hello all! A new update on this class – after the first couple of weeks in, we realized that 8 weeks would not be nearly enough to cover the material in the deep, rich way we wanted to, so the class has been changed mid-stream to a 12-week class, and Term 2 will follow the same format. So much better! All info has been / will be changed below to reflect our longer terms. THANKS!
Beginning July 1, 2017 I’m teaching a wonderful new class on the basics of Astrology. There are two terms, each one 12-weeks. All the info is below… I’m teaching at the Metropolitan Atlanta Astrological society in – you guessed it – Atlanta, GA. If you don’t live in Atlanta, and you’d like to take the class remotely, I’m very open to doing this class on-line as well. So if you’re interested in that, just send an email letting me know to firstname.lastname@example.org, and when we get a few other folks excited about the idea we can study together on-line. Tell your friends! Maybe they’ll want to join.
**UPDATE: The class is running beginning tomorrow, July 1, from 10am to 1pm! It’s a holiday weekend, so I’m extending registration through July 6, because a couple of the attendees will be missing the first class due to the 4th of July long weekend. I don’t want anyone to be deterred because they might miss the first class – or any class. Therefore I have designed the course so that if you can’t attend in-person you can sign in remotely via GoToMeeting and join us from a distance during the actual meeting times. Each class will be recorded so if you miss you still have access. All the attendees will be sent a link to the recording of each class right after they happen. So if you can’t make it in-person or virtually, you can catch up via the recordings before the next class. It’s not too late to get in on the fun!
**UPDATE: Also I’ve created a private Facebook Group for the Fundamentals & Essentials of Astrology students. Once you’ve registered I’ll invite you to the group so we can share and discuss information and ideas from the class, and all things astrology – and create community! Hope to be able to add you to the Group!
**UPDATE: I will be running the same course again via the internet – on-line only. I’m not sure yet of the dates, but probably in 2-3 months.
And thanks so much!!
Fundamentals and Essentials of Astrology
12-weeks / July 1 – September 23, 2017
Meets each Saturday, 10am – 1pm
Metropolitan Atlanta Astrological Society
Harobi House – 2054 Harobi Drive, Tucker, GA 30084
Michelle Gregg, Instructor
Every person is his or her own unique energy system. Each of us is an energetic, evolving, transforming microcosm of the macrocosm that is the Cosmos. It is Astrology that provides us a profound look into that Cosmos, and into ourselves.
In this exciting new “foundations in astrology” class we’ll discover the underlying principles of a thousands-of-years-old language from a modern perspective, and why this language is so relevant and important to us today. We’ll learn about the sky, the map that is the birthchart, and how to “read” it.
Beginning in Term 1 we’ll explore the planets and signs of the zodiac, and their meanings and interpretations. The context will be psychological (primarily Jungian), mythological, spiritual, and evolutionary (karmic), all from the perspective of life as energy, with the birthchart (or horoscope, meaning “time map”) as the tool that maps that energy.
The class will be hugely informative, eye-opening, fun and lively! Come join us!
