When should I get married?
What is the best time to buy a car?
What is a good time to incorporate my business?

In electional astrology, the astrologer selects the most appropriate time for a particular activity. This can be challenging because you need to know not only the planet but the house that best reflects the event.

In this course students will consider electional astrology from a broad spectrum perspective. Methodologies considered will include classical, modern and Uranian procedures. Students will be required to demonstrate capabilities of electing times in several systems.

This course can be used as a diploma program elective.

 

Instructors: Faye Blake-Cossar and Judith Holloway. 
Meets 11:00 AM PST on Sundays

What can I be good at? What should I do? What is my calling?

Whether we are 5 or 50, we can be faced with the question of “what do I want to do when I grow up?” We usually have a better sense of what we don’t want than where we might fit. But using the techniques of vocational astrology, you can gain insight into your unique areas of opportunity. Students will create their own vocational profile as they learn how valuable a tool this can be for their themselves and their clients.

Primary Instructors: Judith Holloway and Gloria Scigliano 
Prerequisite: W110, W111 or knowledge of movement techniques such as transits, progressions, directions, lunar phases

Your client asks a question about what's coming. You know you the techniques for transits, progressions, directions or other methods of moving the chart in time, but how do you select which technique is the most effective? How do you evaluate and weigh the different factors to provide a useful interpretation?
 
This course will help you refine your skills and gain confidence in your interpretations.

One of the first rules of Symmetrical is tossing symbolic out the window in favor of what is actually there and dynamic in nature. So the principles involve finding the question connected to the Asc or MC and connecting to the other personal points. Once the question is found via picture and aspect, then so is the answer. Some of the ancient stuff is useful, such as the Ascendant at the beginning or end of a sign, void of course Moon, etc. It is the idea of a significator that misses the point of the work -- we can do a better job without such symbolic connections and a more descriptive job at that. It is often the notion of symbolic connections that keep astrology out of modern thinking.
