A 9-Wk Live Session Course of Study

The study of Astrology has been a topic of interest and mystery from Ancient times. The relationship between the stars and planets at one’s time of birth and the impact of those celestial bodies on the course of a lifetime has been debated and disputed, but the scientific facts based on astronomy and its findings have uncannily been in support of many of the theory surrounding astrology.

This 9-wk series will provide the core concepts, definitions and basic understanding of an astrological (or natal) chart. You will use your individual natal chart as starting point of analysis and reference.

Topics will include:

• An Overview of Astrology as Science and Mystery
