YOU MUST HAVE A GOOD WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF PLANETS & SIGNS -or- HAVE COMPLETED TERM 1
BEFORE REGISTERING FOR THIS COURSE.
In Term 2 of Fundamentals & Essentials of Astrology, the astrological houses come ALIVE. Houses are the “where” in the “who, how, where, and when” formula of astrology. Each of the 12 houses shows a particular area of your psyche, and a stage upon which part of your life unfolds. You’ll learn in depth about each of the 12 houses and how planets live through them. Term 2 also unfolds the language of the psyche via aspects, specific geometric angles of distance between two or more planets, which describe the conversation and the tone between different parts of your self and your internal dialogue. Aspects truly illuminate the inner and external dynamics of every individual.
This is the astrology course that I wish I had found when I began my study of astrology!
Can’t wait to see you in class!
