This certificate is different from the others in that it is intended to introduce students to a range of methods and approaches to astrology that will expose them to different perspectives. To receive a certificate, students must take at least three courses from three separate traditions. In addition to the courses listed, students may take E510 Symmetrical Astrology 1, E511 Symmetrical Astrology 2 or WL220 Astromapping.

This course can be used as an elective for the diploma.
This is not an introductory course. CS100 Essential Dignities Workshop or equivalent is required.
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!
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 or for the Multi-Cultural Traditions Certificate.
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.

Primary Instructor: Joseph Crane
The student should have a background in the basics of modern astrology prior to taking this course.
The Hellenistic underpinnings of modern astrology are being re-discovered as more texts are translated. Using primary texts of the Hellenistic astrological tradition and modern commentaries, this certificate introduces the student to Hellenistic techniques and procedures plus develops basic chart interpretation skills in both natal and predictive.
Every serious student of astrology should at least take an introduction to this tradition in order to fully appreciate the richness of our own astrological history!
