The Advanced Synastry Course Beginning Soon

The Kiss by Gustave Klimt

It’s spring again, and love is in the air–  The Advanced Synastry Course is here again!  I haven’t been able to offer this course since last spring/summer. Classes will begin in mid-May.

I’ve had requests from a number of you for a more formal synastry course which would go deeper into the material that I’ve introduced in this blog. This advanced course will cover in depth the psycho-sexual dynamics of the individual natal charts and apply this to chart comparison. We will focus on why people come together and how to determine what their purpose is for the time that the relationship exists. We will also re-examine and redefine some of the synastry cliches and take a new look at the relationship planets and how they operate in a chart from a spiritual point of view.

This is not the Progressions Two:  Synastry in Secondary Progressions course.  That course will be taught later in the summer.

Each lesson will be 45 minutes to an hour (usually an hour) and will be conducted over the telephone at the same time each week.  I will send you charts and/or data ahead of time.  There may occasionally be ‘homework’ assignments, including reading some of the synastry articles I’ve posted on this site. Certain articles are required reading.  Access to astro.com or a professional program like Solar Fire is necessary.

The Lessons will be eight in all, and the cost for the course is $280, which can be paid for in a two-part installment of $140 each, payable through Paypal. It also may be possible to pay the fee on a two week basis. If you would like the two week option, please let me know when you email me. There is an optional 9th class for an additional $35, which can be paid for at the time.

Below is a course outline and overview, but lessons can be adjusted according to each student’s ability and need, if necessary. There may be some outside reading involved. It is assumed that each student knows basic natal astrology and has some grasp of basic synastry.
