Introductory Online Astrology Class
Beginning Fall 2017
with Heather Ensworth, Ph.D.
In this class, you will learn how to interpret birth charts and how to understand the times that we are in globally. We will work with videos, online materials and online class discussions to learn the basics of astrology.
Astrology is an ancient art and science dating back thousands of years. It is based on the awareness that all of life is interconnected and that the patterns of life on Earth are mirrored in the movements of the planets and stars in the sky. Astrology is a profound tool to assist us in understanding personal life issues as well as larger global cycles.
In this class, we will work with our own birth charts in depth as well as with other charts (of famous individuals or charts brought by group members) to learn the basic meanings of the planets and signs as well as how to interpret charts. While modern Western astrology has been very influenced by Greek and Roman mythology, which has shaped our understanding of the archetypal meanings of the planets and signs of the zodiac, we will trace back to the earliest known myths and meanings to recover a deeper, less patriarchal understanding of these planets and signs.
You will be able to download videos and online materials that you can work with in your own timeframe. The class will meet online (or in person) for 9 sessions (one Saturday each month from 10am-12:30 pm) for $125/session — total cost for the program: $1250
