  Natal Chart Interpretation - Beginners, Intermediate & Advanced  

Beginner & Intermediate Levels

Make your first steps in understanding the components of the chart: Signs, Planets, Houses & Aspects. 

Learn to find the person in the chart, and see her/his whole environment. 

Learn to identify basic relationship with other people - friends, lovers, family, higher-ups or co-workers. See how  work, home life, health, property, personality, education, spiritual & intellectual pursuits are indicated in the chart. 

Learn to identify the areas of strength or challenges, goals and inspiration.

Advanced Level

You have taken classes and read many books, some of which are quite advanced, yet, when it comes to reading a complete chart you still feel very uncertain.  You have mastered the basics of the language of astrology and its elementary building blocks, and now you feel itís not enough. Often, students get held back at this point, unable to go to the next level of chart integration.  When confronted with a need to read a chart, they typically say: "Ok, I know the pieces, but how do I put it together? Where do I begin ? What do I tell the person?"

This class aims at making this next step:

Learn to apply the basics in an advanced and practical way. 

Learn a structured and guided process that will enable you to go from analysis of the details to the integration of the chart information to a complete total person.

Go deeper into the chart and get insight into the personís motivations and how they experience their own life and the people around them, their circumstances and their environment.

Explore specific topics, such as parent-child relationship, schooling, home and house, sexuality, relationships, marriage, attitude towards money, career, travel, etc.

Learn Aspect theory, comparing Hard vs. Soft aspects; traditional aspects and the use of ĎMinorí aspects.

Learn how planets operate when connected with other planets. What happens when a planet is un-aspected. The circumstances that make a plane strong or weak, and how it affects its effectiveness.

Learn how the chart manifests in life and How Things Come to pass.                       Top  Back

  Uranian Astrology and 90į Dial Techniques  

The Uranian system is distinguished by the following features:

       1.  The 8 Transneptunian (hypothetical) planets
       2.  Use of 0į of the Cardinals (Zero Aries) and the Lunar Nodes, as personal points
       3.  The 90* and the 360* rotating dials, and graphic display of planetary position
       4.  Emphasis on hard  aspects
       5.  Planetary pictures (symmetries of equal arc openings, sums & half sums)
       6.  Intensive use of mid-points
       7.  Interpretation of a chart by aspects/pictures mostly, without emphasis on signs
       8.  Meridian Houses, Earth Houses, Libra Rising chart, Sun Houses, Moon Houses, etc.
       9.  Focus on Solar Arc Directions together with Transits, in forecast work

Each one of these techniques and principles can be used by itself, along with the traditional chat, to maximize the interpretive value contained in the chart. They bring a wealth of precision to the astrologer's work - it's like looking at a chart through a magnifying glass.  They do not contradict classical astrology, but rather extend and enhance it. They also work very well with the Asteroids and can also be applied to Solar Return charts, etc.                                              Top  Back

  Mundane Astrology  

Mundane astrology deals with non-personal entities, such as countries, states, companies, world events, and so on.  It is an exciting field of study.

This is where we observe historic events, the cycles of the economy, generational differences and the evolution of new ideologies.

My favorite saying is "Mundane is Personal" because this is where we see how the life of the Individual and the Collective affect each other.                                                              Top  Back

  Horary Astrology  

This branch of astrology specializes in answering a specific question from the chart of the moment the question was asked.

Using a clear set of rules that have come down to us from traditional and classical astrology, learn to answer questions such as 'Will my job interview be successful?', 'Will I sell the house?', 'Will my son get married?', and so on.                                                                                    Top  Back
