Jewish Astrology 101: Intro to Jewish Astrology
- No prior knowledge necessary
- Background in Jewish Studies and/or Astrology would be helpful but not necessary
Did you know that there was such a thing as Jewish Astrology? Did you know that Rabbinic Judaism and Western Astrology derive from the same place and time?? (Ancient Babylon). Western Astrology follows the Zodiac Calendar, and it is an increasingly popular tool for Personal Development. As a student and teacher of the Jewish Tradition, I believe/understand that the Rabbinic & Kabbalistic understandings of the Hebrew Calendar are very similar to the practice of Western Astrology. Both the Jewish and Astrological traditions can and should be used as tools for Personal Development.
In this course, you will learn the basic structure of the Hebrew Calendar and the ways it is similar to and different from the Zodiac/Western Calendar. You will also gain a basic introduction to understanding the unique spiritual qualities of each month on the Hebrew Calendar.
Learning more about the spiritual qualities of the months on the Hebrew Calendar can strengthen your already-existing practice of Jewish Learning, AND/OR it might strengthen your already-existing practice of Western Astrology. If you are not already familiar with either of these two traditions, then this is your chance to start learning about both traditions, from a kosher perspective, starting at the way beginning!
I use almost entirely Rabbinic sources, so this course is appropriate for Torah-Observant Jews, although my courses are also designed to be relevant for everybody, whether you are Jewish or not Jewish, religious or not religious, spiritual or not spiritual, etc. No matter what your background is, the Kabbalah (Deep Torah Mysticism) of the Hebrew Calendar and Jewish Astrology are an extremely powerful tools for self-awareness and personal development. My intention is to share these tools with other people so that we can all learn a little bit more about ourselves, our lives, and the world we live in. Please join me in learning more about the Hebrew Calendar and Jewish Astrology.
