Advanced Synastry: Winter 2012

detail from Rodin's Lovers

 

UPDATE!!!

CLASSES WILL BEGIN THE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5th FOR BOTH THE ADVNACED SYNASTRY COURSE AND THE ADVANCED SYNASTRY WORKSHOP.  IF YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT SIGNING UP, NOW IS THE TIME.  THERE ARE A FEW OPENINGS LEFT.

 

Welcome to Advanced Synastry.  Classes begin scheduling the week of January 29th.

This course will cover in depth how to reveal the psycho-sexual dynamics of individual natal charts and apply this to chart comparison. We will focus on why people come together and learn how to reveal the spiritual purpose underlying the relationship themes. 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.  Expect the unexpected.

Each lesson will be 45 minutes to an hour (sometimes over 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 $290, which can be paid for in a two-part installment of $145 each, payable through Paypal.  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, including chart inter-aspects.

 

If you are interested in joining me for this, please email me: alcuin9@gmail.com.  If you know you’re interested you should sign up soon, as this is a popular course that fills up quickly.
