Astrology 101: Intro to Astrology
What you'll learn
- The Basics of Astrology
- Introduction to the archetypes of astrology
Astrology is an increasingly popular tool for self-improvement, empowerment, and personal development. There are many different kinds of Astrology! Are you curious about learning more about it, but feel a bit skeptical because of the confusion of postmodern New Age spirituality? That is totally understandable! Still,it is a shame that the meaning and self-awareness we can find in Astrology has been diminished by the watered down Popular Astrology. I designed this course to provide an explanation of how Astrology works, without including the inconsistent, subjective bias of New Age spirituality. I explain how the factual basics of Astronomy (Sun and Moon orbits, the Zodiac, the movements of the Planets through the sky, etc.) provide the spiritual off-shoot of Astrology. With my Master's degree in Jewish Studies, I use the tradition of Kabbalistic Astrology as a grounded basis for understanding Astrology in a consistent and mindful way. I also explain that there are many different types of Astrology, and that Western Astrology is not the only option. Understanding Astrology from an Academic perspective can show you how to find meaningful patterns and practices. When you learn about Astrology from a purely fact-based perspective, you can decide for yourself what Astrology can mean for you.
Who this course is for:
