Certificate: Fundamentals of Natal Astrology

This course is designed for those who are curious about what astrologers do, or those who want to solidify the astrological knowledge they have already gained on their own.

This course adds tools to help students distinguish how the core components of a chart are modified for each individual.

The primary focus in this course is the practical application of what the student has learned. A good astrologer must not only know techniques but be able to reflect upon their own world view, assumptions and other personal filters. Students will also actively consider and discuss potential client issues and ethical considerations. In addition, students get guidance in how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to delineation by examining how multiple astrologers approach chart interpretation.

Instructors: Karen McCauley and Inga Thornell.

Students will be challenged to explore their own personal filters, attitudes, and beliefs as they develop their chart interpretation skills. They will actively consider and discuss potential client issues and ethical considerations. In addition, students get guidance on how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to delineation by examining how multiple astrologers approach chart interpretation.

For many students, there is a large jump between knowing all the pieces and putting them together for a client. If you find synthesis a struggle, then this course is for you.  Students will focus on finding basic themes, answers, and interpretations using the natal chart to address client issues.
