Using primary texts of the Hellenistic astrological tradition and modern commentaries, this certificate introduces the student to Hellenistic techniques and procedures plus develops basic chart interpretation skills in both natal and predictive.
Joseph Crane, author of Astrological Roots: The Hellenistic Legacy, brings together various Hellenistic sources to show students how they can incorporate the richness of these older techniques into their own natal practice.
The course introduces students to ancient terminology and concepts, philosophical underpinnings, and how this applies to chart interpretation and synthesis. Along the way, Joseph will highlight where Hellenistic and modern astrological methods are similar and where they differ.
- planetary symbolism and application,
- signs, house definitions and house systems,
- planetary sect and dignity, planetary assessment,
- lots, fixed stars.
Students will apply these concepts to the natal chart to assess fame and fortune, relationships, vocation, and character.
