Instructor: Kate Petty
Course is 5 weeks

Wednesdays 5:00-7:00 pm starting October 15th It is recommended that you enroll a few days early so you can begin reviewing the material prior to the first class.


This is a practical, hands-on course designed for astrologers who would like to incorporate some basic symmetrical techniques into their practice. Each student will work with their own or another’s chart for the duration of the class, applying each technique as we go along. A portion of each live online seminar will be interactive, as methods are applied and findings uncovered and shared by students. This is an experiential course with many visual learning tools.



The course begins with an examination of the Aries point, cardinal axis, and eight-armed cross. As a starting place and a point we all share, this axis connects earth and sky and spirit with matter, and is fundamental to our work with openings, symmetries, aspects, and transits. Symmetry around the cardinal axis (seasonal turning points), known as antiscia, is an under-utilized aspect of astrology with potent ramifications. Points in antiscia reflect one another and reveal hidden dialogues between planets, signs, and houses. In an exploration of antiscia applied to the natal chart, students will learn to identify and delineate these positions and connections.

We will then consider additional symmetries measured along the ecliptic, the steps of the sun. Midpoints specifically offer a great deal of information, both in natal work and in timing the unfoldment of signatures through a life. Students will investigate the activation of latent antiscia or midpoint structures through transits, solar arcs, and secondary progressions. The final class will focus on symmetrical applications in the context of synastry.

  1. Divine spark in matter—the cardinal axis and Aries point
  2. Antiscia: symmetry in shared light and time
  3. Applying antiscia experientially
  4. Midpoints and their meaning over time
  5. Symmetry in synastry
