Introducing the Art of Astrology: Planets, Signs, Houses (ONLINE)

August 24, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


This ONLINE six part class introduces you to the most important symbols and concepts in astrology using your own chart.

This six part class introduces you to the most important symbols and concepts in astrology using your own chart.

Astrology is a symbolic language. Learning how astrological symbols combine and work together frees you from laboriously looking up meanings in books, and lets you begin to understand your own chart organically.

In these sessions, we’ll begin by looking at the elements and qualities: the fundamental building blocks to understand the meaning of the signs. You’ll receive a customized packet containing your own chart that we’ll examine together in the group. We’ll look at how the elements and the qualities work for you.

Then we’ll explore the signs in more detail and we’ll introduce the planets by examining how your planets inhabit the signs. We’ll then look at the meanings of the houses, again focusing on your chart.

Prerequisites: No prior knowledge of astrology needed. Come prepare to explore your chart in a group setting.

Required data: To prepare your customized packet with your chart you’ll provide us your birth date, place, and time when you register for the seminar.

About Tom: Starting my study before I was a teenager, I’ve been immersed in astrology for more than fifty years. I’ve developed software professionally for almost forty years, and my passion is combining computerized techniques with natal astrology and the study of planetary cycles and how they affect us in the world. My book, Beyond 2012: Planetary Cycles and World History, looks at these major planetary cycles and their effects on war, revolution, and economic shifts. I’m delighted to be teaching here in Cedar Rapids, where I live with my husband, John Schwartzkopf.
