Coming in 2020. Below is the course design.
Astrology Arts: Foundations
Level One: Vocabulary Lessons = $160.00/individual, 8 2-hour class meetings
Learning any new language takes practice, community, and commitment. This intro-level astrology course explores the language components of the art: the sun signs, the planetary bodies, and the houses of the astrological chart. This course provides the structure for students to practice mastery of these entities before proceeding onto the highway of chart casting. In studying these terms, we will work to challenge and undo our biases based off of simplistic stereotyping of the signs. Each sign, house, and planet provides us with a lesson to learn; there are higher and lower frequencies of each and we have to move past judgment to embrace those lessons.
In the learning process, students will be reading, writing lyric essays, crafting poetry, and creating visual art representations of the material covered. Weeks will alternate between reading and assimilating new material and translating this information into a visual representation. This method melds intellectual and experiential learning practices to work with the vocabulary, integrating it into your reality. It also provides the reflective space to creatively explore aspects of your own astrological makeup.
Participation is required for all 8 sessions to honor the group and to honor your own learning process. Each student is expected to complete the creative/reflective homework before each class meeting; all work will be peer reviewed and discussed in each class meeting, and written feedback from the instructor will follow. At the workshop’s end, each student will conduct a brief presentation that interprets one active house of his or her birth chart, applying the skills used in class.
