Symmetrical Astrology

Symmetrical Astrology

Many of the fundamental principles of astrology are based on symmetry. Best known is the distribution of signs by element and quality, a scheme that is based on equal distances along the ecliptic and that produces perfect triangles and squares. 

But there is more to the concept of Symmetrical Astrology than what we find in traditional techniques. In this way, Symmetrical Astrology can be distinguished from anything else that has come before it. It breaks from the past without losing the conceptual basis of astrological practice. It is a work in progress spanning close to 100 years.

While the core technique of Uranian Astrology is widely practiced all over the world, Alfred Witte, the principle designer, could only re-conceptualize what was available in his era and more discoveries in our field have been made since his time. His development of a language of astrology and other viewpoints were based on planes and the Greek concept of the horoscope as a point in time – very two-dimensional.

Arthur Blackwell introduced three-dimensional, very practical ways of looking at the heavens. His concepts combined with Witte’s core elements opens up an amazing amount of data and possible research possibilities. The following courses in symmetrical astrology take the symmetrical relations that already exist, plus the ideas as presented in Uranian astrology to develop a new and practical way of working with the chart.

Instructor: Bruce Scofield.

10-week online class. Students will have a course site with course materials, discussion forums and more. Students will also meet once a week for an online conference to discuss the materials.

This course considers a range of astrological techniques that share a common principle – symmetry. Much of astrology is done using signs, houses and aspects which are essentially spatial, but do not necessarily involve symmetricality. The astrological chart itself is a grid on which planets are located in specific compartments, i.e. houses and signs. The planets can be shown to relate to each other by aspects based on the the division of the circle by various integers. In this way a delineation is produced. In this course we will consider only astrological techniques that are based on symmetry, which turns out to be quite a few.

Symmetrical Astrology in the Modern World -
New Tools for the Ancient Arts

Instructor: Gary Christen

This course will aquaint the participant with the background, materials and methods behind the emerging Symmetrical Astrology. Symmetrical Astrology is a modern framework for astrology comprising the work of Arthur Blackwell, Alfred Witte, Rob Hand and Gary Christen. It affords astrology the possibility of a truely structured form with common rules, observations and methods in keeping with modern times. Please note that this course only references Uranian Astrology and uses the Uranian System as a departure point for the structural integration of future astrological possibilites.

Because students are expected to practice the  techniques each week, there will be a discount for the course and a 1/2 price discount for the software used to work with symmetrical astrology, Nova Chart Wheels.

Instructor: Gary Christen

This course builds on the work done in E510 and E511. By the end of the course, students will not only understand how to implement the principles and techniques of Symmetrical Astrology, but be able to evaluate, select and apply specific principles as needed to help a client or answer a question with regard to chart interpretation, moving the chart in time and space, and forecasting.
Requirements: This is an advanced-level course. Students need a strong grounding in basic astrological symbolism and natal interpretation, and the principles of Symmetrical Astrology and its applied use in interpretation. E511 or equivalent required.
