AIM OF THE COURSE
This is an online course dedicated to one particular branch of Astrology - "Natal Astrology" i.e. the position of planets at an individual's time and place of birth.
The course is specifically designed to teach you how to interpret and understand your own horoscope.
Astrology is a tool for self-understanding. It does not matter if you have some or no background knowledge in Astrology. This course guides you through a simple step-by-step process.
Emphasis is on practical application. This is a hands on course. Without practical application and a process of enquiry one cannot really learn.
Those new to Astrology will gain a basic understanding of Astrology and those familiar with the science will have the opportunity to understand themselves at a deeper level.
As the "eye of the 'Vedas' (the spiritual tradition and knowledge of ancient India), Astrology gives us the vision to understand how to work in harmony with the rhythms of the universe.
The natal horoscope is the visual representation of the sky at the moment of birth.
There are many ways to apply Astrology as it relates to every affair of human existence. Astrology gives insight into spiritual, psychological and practical matters and can be applied to a person, country, or particular event.
Rather than try and conquer the entire field of Astrology all at once the simplest and most exciting way to approach the subject is discovering what it means to you personally.
Learning to interpret your own chart will give you the tools for personal growth and hopefully the incentive to pursue a deeper interest and study in all aspects of Astrology.
This course was designed specially to give you practical exercises for application in your own chart and to avoid boring exercises or too much unnecessary theory.
Before commencing the course you will be provided with your own horoscope based upon your time, date and place of birth.
For those of you who are unsure of your birth time you will need to order a birth chart rectification before starting the course
