TIME: 10:00 AM-12:00 PM Pacific
Draconic is a branch of astrology based on lunar symbolism that offers a deeper viewpoint into one’s inner motivations. The Draconic zodiac is oriented to the Moon and takes the North Node as 0 degree of Aries. Whereas the Tropical zodiac is about our psychological traits, the Draconic zodiac alludes to memory and inheritance. It is impressed within the tropical, and both interact.
The Draconic zodiac is associated with our motivations and purpose. Because it is engraved within the Tropical zodiac, one needs to superimpose the draconic chart to the tropical one. Both charts interact: the draconic chart represents inner motivations and purpose. When a draconic planet or angle touches a tropical one, it is as though the soul has reached out to that planet in order to convey a part of itself. There is a subliminal conditioning that becomes evident; the contacted planet expresses the symbolism of the draconic and gains strength in terms of the planetary symbolisms involved.
The workshop consists of 5 sessions of 90 minutes each, and the following topics will be addressed:
• The lunar nodes, their traditional and humanistic interpretations.
• The return of the nodes.
• The difference between True and Mean Nodes.
• Origin of Draconic Astrology.
• How to calculate a draconic chart.
• How to interpret a draconic chart.
• Draconic Transits on both the Tropical and Draconic charts.
• Draconic Synastry.
• Examples of my own research on how to differentiate charts of twins using the Draconic Zodiac.
