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.

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.
