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
• The Astrological Signs of the Zodiac
• The Houses
• The Ruling Planets
• Aspects and more

Weekly Homework includes:

• Glossary Building

A Walk Through the Major Arcana

lectura-de-tarot-en-concon_1

Length: 5hrs.
FEE: $50

This workshop moves through the cards of the Major Arcana as metaphors for our spiritual journey and application of the “Journey of the Fool”. Each card is explored in poetic representation and through pathworking to reveal the underlying theme of transformation and deeper understanding that may be used in practical application both our mundane and spiritual paths. We will discuss the psychological interface of each of the cards and their individual archetypal energies.

The class will conclude with a Pathworking, allowing each participant to attune to the energies of a randomly selected card.

Note:

  • Prior knowledge of the tarot is helpful, but not required.
  • A visual Study Sheet of the cards is supplied, but I would highly recommend purchasing a deck of the Rider-Waite Tarot cards for future study.
