Astrology is extremely abstract in its analytic and interpretive process. Still, it was founded on some basic and straightforward assumptions. Premise number one assumes the connectedness of all things – all things, “As above, so below…” Premise number two assumes the presence of Spirit, above and below. Premise number three assumes our human ability to examine and understand these connections and thus benefit from that understanding.
This class will delve deeply into the abstractions of Astrology, such as Planetary archetypes, Sign energy, the contexts of the Houses and the character of the Aspects. Through discussion and active involvement with the abstract concepts we will reveal the wisdom underlying the abstractions, as understood and applied by the Ancient Astrologers, Alchemists, Magicians, Herbalists, Wise Women and Sage Men.
The student will realize the contemporary value of the ancient wisdom and improve your ability to apply it in various Astrological frames. You will develop a deeper, broader, internalized understanding of Astrology’s abstract nature and how it manifests on the physical plane. You will take away a greatly enhanced Astrological skill set to apply to your Magick, Rituals and Life Journey.
