Imagine a way to access the details of your life-script (your karma). You could gain understanding of your life purpose, know when to seize opportunity, and have the foreknowledge to remediate difficult circumstances. This is the tradition of Jyotish, the astrology of India. This courses gives you tools to make use of the concepts and practices of Indian astrology, including how it can play a healing role in our lives, and how it can be an adjunct to your Western Astrological work.
The course will be hands-on with multiple example charts. Your astrological analytic skills will be strengthened through the use of the charts of ordinary people.

By the end of the term you will learn:

  • The rules for evaluating a planet’s aptitude and temperament, and how it will play out in the life.
  • To make sense of the often contradictory indications shown in the chart.
  • How the Varga (Divisional charts) provide additional insight on a specific topic.
  • The timing method of Dashas which determines when a planet will deliver on its promise.
  • Additional methods, including Indian transit principles, yogas (special planetary combinations), and the fascinating history of this unbroken astrological tradition.

You may have used natal astrology to tell that you are likely to move this year - but is the house you just looked at a good match? Your client's chart may show relationship issues, but is the guy she just met last weekend a prince or a frog? And what if your cousin's birth time is uncertain - he still has questions! This course will give you the depth and experience to answer all of these questions - and many more!

This 10-week course includes a coursesite with weekly assignments, discussion forum and resource materials along with 90 minutes of on-line questions and exercises per week, on Tuesdays evenings from 5:30-7:00 pm Pacific / 8:30 - 10:00 pm Eastern

Text Copyright 1996, 2004, 2007 J. Lee Lehman:

Horary astrology is a part of one of the oldest branches of divination: that of asking questions. Normally, when we use the word horary, we refer specifically to the particular sets of rules for interpreting an astrological chart drawn for the moment of asking a question, a type of astrology also known under the Sanskrit name prashna. However, let us not forget that the urge of humans to obtain answers to important questions by divining, or asking the gods, is much older. Horary astrology in a sense is merely a technology for reading that divine answer, like the I Ching, or Tarot.

In Shang Dynasty China, the king would ask questions frequently, often involving the question of what sacrifice the gods wanted. In ancient Babylonia, all manner of omens – really, any deviation from business as usual, whether unusual birth, unusual weather, or unusual bird formations, as an opportunity to divine the message from the gods. As astrology gradually gained primacy as a method for reading the heavens, and hence the place of the gods, so it later became a preferred means of similarly reading the gods’ messages.

We all ask questions. Some of these questions are more important than others. What makes a question important? It's not how much money is on the line, or whether you really need to move. It's whether you care more about knowing the answer than about what the answer is. Suppose you're driving to work, and thinking about that new person you interviewed yesterday. You could be thinking, "I wonder if Jane would be good for the job." Or you could be very impressed with Jane, and convinced that she could really help you with that next big project, so you say, "Will my company hire Jane?" The first is not a horary question, while the second one may be. A horary question is one in which the person asking the question really wants to know the answer. It is this serious interest which allows a horary astrologer to interpret the moment when the question is asked. Casual curiosity is not enough.

There are correspondences between the physical body and the astrological chart. From ancient times to the Renaissance, medical doctors used these correspondences to help them in their practice. 

The purpose to this course is not to engage in medical practice as understood legally. But these traditional tools can help the astrologer  offer specialized services to their clients, mainly concerning the timing and circumstances of medical care provided by licensed practitioners.

Instructor: Laura Nalbandian
The question of the soul has fascinated humans since the beginning of time. Through his own quest to find deeper meaning, Jeffry Green began to develop the Pluto material; exploring at the nature of the soul in the natal chart.  By the mid 1980's his book "Pluto: The Evolutionary Journey of the Soul" was published.  The material strives to cut to the core issues of the soul - answering the questions of "why am I here, what are my lessons?"  
In this 13 week course, we'll examine this groundbreaking work. We'll start with the discussion of the three evolutionary states of consciousness and the basic rules of the Pluto methodology.  Then move onto exploring the twelve house placements of Pluto.  By the end of this course, students will be able to:

Each individual 5-week workshop is $195, $530 if you take all three (students signing up for all three courses get $50 off the price of taking the courses individually). All three workshops are required to be counted as a diploma elective.

Is the soul immortal, and, if so, how can the soul be modified by good or bad actions? How does soul relate to body, mind, emotions and to situations like falling in love or falling apart? Can we use astrology to find the soul’s purpose in life or throughout lifetimes? Is the soul evolving or does it get stuck on the wheel of existence?  Divided into three short courses, this program explores these questions and their profound implications for the theory and practice of astrology.

All three courses survey the traditions that astrologers inherited and created and apply their ideas to astrological practice.

Symmetrical Astrology in the Modern World -
New Tools for the Ancient Arts

Instructor: Gary Christen

This course will aquaint the participant with the background, materials and methods behind the emerging Symmetrical Astrology. Symmetrical Astrology is a modern framework for astrology comprising the work of Arthur Blackwell, Alfred Witte, Rob Hand and Gary Christen. It affords astrology the possibility of a truely structured form with common rules, observations and methods in keeping with modern times. Please note that this course only references Uranian Astrology and uses the Uranian System as a departure point for the structural integration of future astrological possibilites.

Because students are expected to practice the  techniques each week, there will be a discount for the course and a 1/2 price discount for the software used to work with symmetrical astrology, Nova Chart Wheels.

Instructor: Bruce Scofield.

10-week online class. Students will have a course site with course materials, discussion forums and more. Students will also meet once a week for an online conference to discuss the materials.

This course considers a range of astrological techniques that share a common principle – symmetry. Much of astrology is done using signs, houses and aspects which are essentially spatial, but do not necessarily involve symmetricality. The astrological chart itself is a grid on which planets are located in specific compartments, i.e. houses and signs. The planets can be shown to relate to each other by aspects based on the the division of the circle by various integers. In this way a delineation is produced. In this course we will consider only astrological techniques that are based on symmetry, which turns out to be quite a few.

Instructor: J. Lee Lehman, PhD
Independent study

This short course can be taken anytime as an independent class and as a prelude for CS102 Traditional Medical Astrology and CS101 Horary Astrology in depth (this workshop or the equivalent is required for these two courses).

How do you determine which planet is stronger when looking at aspects? How do you quickly find the strongest planets in the chart? Or which planets may pose more challenges even if they aren't aspected or mainly have trines? Classical astrologers used essential dignities and debilities.These were their building blocks for interpretation.

Instructor: Frank Piechoski and Bruce Scofield

Prerequisite: W101 or equivalent

For any major undertaking, it's wise to consider “planning its birth” through the judicious use of Electional astrology. Electional astrology works with a specific set of tools and rules to do discover the most appropriate timing for an event that will give a desired outcome.
Students will learn the basic rules for Electional astrology, and when and how those rules have been modified over time.
