Traditional astrology offers a particularly effective system of forecasting that combines techniques to help you prepare for the future and understand the past.

DATE: Begins May 6, 2018 (5 weeks)
TIME: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT / 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

This system is known as the Cycle or Turning of the Year. Instead of just using a Solar Return, this method was prepared yearly for each birthday. It has its roots in Hellenistic astrology, came to full flower in the Arabic and Persian eras, and persisted through the late Classical period of Lilly and his contemporaries. Ben Dykes' translation of Abu Mashar's On Solar Revolutions in Persian Nativities 3 is a full exposition of this system.

Astrology has a rich heritage stretching back thousands of years. This class offers a survey of the history of astrology from the late Renaissance to modern times, primarily in the West.

Why use Essential Dignities? Because they are a crucial part of good interpretation.This is especially true is you want to work with forecasting (particularly horary and electional astrology). 

Instructors; Joseph Crane and Enid Newberg (6 week course)
