Was the Star of Bethlehem an astronomical phenomenon? The general answer is "no." It was not a comet, a significator of death. Nor nor was it a nova, as none were recorded during this time. So the problem is: When did the birth of Christ occur?
More than 30 years ago, Christine Arens' mother challenged her to use astrology to work on the puzzle of the Star of Bethlehem. For over 10 years Christine reviewed the many answers given by astrologers. Amazingly, none of the proposed birthdays worked with the transits and progressions for all four major events recorded in the Bible: birth, age 12 in the temple, age 30 as Jesus became a pubic figure, and the elusive chart of death.
Although she had finished her initial research, Christine has never completely let the question go. Please join us in this fascinating webinar. All proceeds will go toward scholarships for our students.
Unless noted, all the courses are 10-weeks in length and cost $530.
Every term includes both electives (some of which may only be offered once per year) and regularly scheduled Certificate courses. Live meetings will be recorded and students will receive a copy of the recording as part of their tuition.
Instructor: J. Lee Lehman, PhD
Independent study. Students have 4 months to complete the assignments.
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.

As we journey through life, we all encounter key threshold crossings mirrored by the planetary transits. Some of these are unique to our chart whilst others are shared with everyone in our age group. The core features of these key times are archetypal in meaning as we are invited to release our false self and fully inhabit who we truly are. However, our experience and reaction to these transits is unique to each of us.
Navigating the Neptune square Neptune transit (41/42)
January 18, 2014 from 2:00-4:00 pm Eastern Time (11 am-1:00pm Pacific Time)
This session includes transits to the Sun, Moon and/or Angles of your chart.
In this session we will explore the feelings of dissolution that can occur with this transit as our dreams are revisited, reshaped and at times released. With a sense of boundaries dissolving all around us our sense of self can feel particularly challenged at this time especially if it is unformed or inauthentic to our soul self. We will explore ways of co-creating with our imagination during this immensely resourceful time as we explore the importance of this transit within the context of our current collective reawakening to our oneness.
Exploring the Uranus Opposition (42/43)
February 22, 2014 from 2:00-4:00 pm Eastern Time
This session includes Uranus aspects to the Sun, Moon and/or Angles of your chart
Overlapping with the Neptune square Neptune, this powerful Promethean energy awakens itself through opposing its natal position. Generational ideals are awoken and with it comes a powerful call to break free of any restrictions that may block the integration of a bigger vision. We will explore ways of working with this potentially enlightening energy which brings to a close the midlife transits and prepares us for a new phase in life. We will also consider the potential impact of the current square from Pluto to the Uranus opposition.
The Chiron return
March 29, 2014 from 2:00-4:00 pm Eastern Time
This session includes an exploration of the previous phases of the Chiron Cycle in your chart (50/51)
With the return of the Chironian Centaur to his natal position in your chart, an opening takes place to allow unresolved chironian wounds to emerge into consciousness so that further healing and releasing can take place. In emerging from this process of initiation, we are invited to share whatever knowledge we have gleamed about our humanity with others. In doing so we take on the Chironian role of teacher and healer for younger generations. Today we will also explore what this might entail in the context of the planetary and energetic changes we are experiencing. We will be looking at the Chiron return in the context of the previous transits of Chiron to itself in the chart – the waxing and waning square and the opposition.
