Course Details

DescriptionUpon hearing the word "Astrology", most people think "sun sign" (e.g. Aries, Taurus, Gemini, etc.). However, Astrology is so much more. In this class, we will start by reviewing all the 12 zodiac signs. We will discuss the meaning of a Rising Sign (or Ascendant) and Moon Sign. Then, we will review the archetypal energy of each planet (i.e. Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto). We will identify the location of your planets in your natal chart. As a part of this course, an overview of the 12 astrological house systems will be given. On the first day of the course, I will ask you to provide 3 key pieces of personal information (if you can): (a) date of birth (month, day, year), (b) time of birth (hour and minute), and (c) location of birth. I will use this information to create your natal chart, and, together, we will learn to read it. If you do not know your exact time of birth, you will still get general information from your natal chart, but you will not receive specific details (e.g., about Rising Sign or houses).
