This course is designed to be an historically inclusive, in-depth and practical introduction to medical astrology. Students will be introduced to historical practitioners and core concepts in astrological medicine from its ancient Greek beginnings through our modern period. By the end of the course, students will have an overview of the development of medical astrology and its potential applications, as well as the legal, ethical and philosophical principles informing its use.
DATE: 10-week course begins Monday Sunday, September 18, 2022
The course will equip students with the techniques to hold a medical astrological evaluation (within the bounds of their own medical knowledge, legal permissions and personal competence). These procedures will include the medical assessment of birth charts, consultation charts and decumbitures, transits, profections and solar returns for the purposes of understanding medical concerns from astrological perspectives. The course covers traditional concepts of Temperament from both Elemental and Humoral frameworks and will enable students to utilize astrology to help clients dealing with medical issues in practical and responsible ways.
