Either W112 or W113 may be taken to complete the certificate for Moving the Chart in Time. In addition, W112 may be taken as an elective for the certificate diploma; Pre-requisite: W110 (and preferably W111) or Challenge

In a fluid, multi-national world, many clients do not have birth times, a critical piece of information needed to accurately determine houses and the timing of events. Rectification puts your knowledge and skill with techniques that move the chart in time in order to identify the most likely birth time.

The astrologer and client determine when rectification of the birth time is needed and what is to be accomplished by the search. For an accurate birth time, the dates of major life turning points should confirm the alignment of natal chart patterns to life events. If they do not, the client should provide information of specific life turning points and time range information from family sources.

In this course, students learn to select appropriate modern western techniques for adjusting the birth time to bring relevant natal chart patterns into alignment with appropriate astrological indicators to coincide with the known life events. Study for part III includes:

Primary Instructor: Carol Tebbs.

W110 and W111 are required for the Certificate Diploma. 

This course examines the development of modern Western interpretive methods of movement based upon planetary cycles, natural phenomena and symbolic interpretive tools from the 16th to the 21st centuries and assumes the student’s working knowledge of the elements of natal chart interpretation and synthesis. Areas of study for Moving the Chart in Time, Part 2 include:

Primary Instructor: Carol Tebbs.

W110 and W111 are required for the Certificate Diploma. This is not an introductory course. Students are expected to have a working knowledge of the elements of natal chart interpretation and synthesis. 

This Certificate examines the development of modern Western methods used to understand the cycles experienced throughout an individual’s life. The objective is for students to understand the advantages and disadvantages of the various techniques used by astrologers to understand cycles and change. Students will see how different techniques apply to questions related to psychological development, and the timing of critical events both in the past and as potential predictions for the future. As it is increasingly common for astrologers to have clients without settled birth times, students will also learn strategies and considerations for applying these techniques to chart rectification. The basic approach will include:

The primary focus in this course is the practical application of what the student has learned. A good astrologer must also reflect upon their own world view, assumptions and other personal filters. Students will be challenged to explore their own personal filters, attitudes and beliefs as they develop their chart interpretation skills. They will also actively consider and discuss potential client issues and ethical considerations. In addition, students get guidance in how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to delineation by examining how multiple astrologers approach chart interpretation.

Topics include:

  • Developing critical thinking skills through examining conflicting views and asking questions about subjects such as house systems, the use of dignities, the use of the nodes, whether there are good and bad planets, or good and bad houses, etc.
  • An exploration of what makes a good or bad astrologer
  • Practice with and evaluation of multiple approaches to delineation
  • Learning how to identify your own filters in yourself and in the natal chart
  • Additional techniques to fine tune the chart
  • Learning to integrate dispositors, Part of Spirit and additional Arabic Lots, the lunation cycle, time lords, decans, fixed stars, retrogrades, planetary speed, derivative houses and more into chart interpretation
  • Introduction to transits
