"Antero's subtly revolutionary revisioning of the ancient art is
emotionally intelligent, intuitively savvy, and provocative to
my imagination".

How This Course Works, Prerequisites, & Tuition



 

How This Course Works
Note: this is Western Tropical Astrology (not Sidereal Vedic Astrology).

Since 2007, I have taught this 6-week online course once a year as 'ASTROLOGIK' based on my 1999 book of the same title. This course has since been retitled and updated to align with my 2022 book, "EXPERIENTIAL ASTROLOGY" (Original Falcon Press). The overall aim of this course remains the same: to learn enough of the language of Astrology to accurately interpret your own horoscope and the charts of others. The primary difference in this new course will be a more intuitive approach to accessing and experiencing the living forces symbolized by the planets towards a more embodied astrology. Your natal horoscope will serve as a map to gain a more direct access to the life you are actually living.

This course is set up for everyone to go at their own pace with no set times or dates scheduled beyond the weekly assignments everyone receives and tends in accord with their given motivation, available time, commitment, etc. Each week everyone receives a link to private web pages with access tasks and astrological methods distilled from my ongoing astrological practice (since 1985). A private, password-protected online forum supports group interaction and public feedback from myself via private e-mail feedback and correspondence (also see THE COURSE STRUCTURE section near bottom of this page).
 
Note: No Skype, Zoom, chat rooms or phone calls are used in this course.
Interaction is private email and a multiplatform public forum (limited to participants).

COURSE STRUCTURE
(subject to change and adjustments)




book

 

Week One: The 12 Houses as States 
The 12-point grid of astrological houses will be examined as a mandalic landscape of actual life experiences to bring greater depth of insight into the meanings of the planets, the astrological signs, and the house cusps as "governors".

Week Two: Nodal Axis, 12 Signs as Styles & The Ascendant 
How the Nodal Axis (North and South Nodes of the Moon) frames the context for the whole chart through which all the planets play a part in the "story" or personal mythos of the current life. We will examine the 12 astrological signs as styles of how the forces (planets) find expression.The ASCENDANT (or Rising Sign) is also covered.

Week Three: The Forces of Personal Development
The personal (inner planet) forces symbolized by the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are interpreted through the psychological process of individuation and a progressive development of the maturing personality and Ego. 

Week Four: The Transpersonal Forces of Soul Awakening
The transpersonal (outer planet) forces symbolized by astrological Uranus, Neptune and Pluto will be introduced as three distinct types of "outside shock" capable of catalyzing and accelerating transformation, spiritual awakening, and humility. Also included are Chiron, the Dispositer Planet theory and the four Asteroids: Juno, Vesta, Ceres, and Pallas.

Week Five: Aspects -- The Geometry of Interconnectedness
A little math (addition and subtraction) will be required to analyze the angles shared between planets to determine how they "communicate" with each other: Conjunctions, Trines, Squares, Oppositions, Quincunxes and Sextiles. Grand Trines, Gand Crosses, T-squares and Yods also covered.

Week Six: Transits, Mapping the Timing of Change
Using the predictive technique of "Transits", we will track and map the movements of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto to see how the timing of their orbits synchronize with your current life experiences. These transits will be studied as the timing of change but not their causes; there will be no blaming of planets for our experiences in this course.
