Live sessions on Thursdays beginning April 17, 2014 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Pacific Time (8:30-9:30 pm Eastern).
Instructors: Joseph Crane and Enid Newberg
This 5-week course in our series on Character, Calling and Karma focuses on the individual's karma and the soul's movement through many lifetimes. Students will meet for two hours each week in live online sessions and continue their conversations and studies in an online course site. Each live session will be recorded and students will receive a copy of the recording.
In this discussion, we will explore a method for assessing constitution – regardless of zodiacal preference. It is a day-month-year tool combined with the influence of planets upon the ascendant. We will confirm astrological considerations with physical signs. And, just for fun, discuss the problem of reduction vs. complexity in the consideration of constitution with respect to beliefs about regularly reproducible results as a harbinger of truth. This latter point leads us to the value of the harmonizing technique in the use of foods and herbs for care of the person.
Presenter: Donna Woodwell
Time: May 10, 2014 1:00-2:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time
Astrologers are familiar with the 12 signs of the solar zodiac – Aries, Taurus, Gemini and so on. But did you know there's also a 28-sign lunar zodiac? In India lunar zodiac signs are called naksatras, but in the West they're called Mansions of the Moon. In Arabic and Renaissance astrology, lunar mansions were considered an important tool for predictive, electional and magical astrology. In this lecture, Austin-based astrologer Donna Woodwell will explain the astronomy of the mansions and explore how to use them in electional astrology and chart interpretations. She'll also share the traditional interpretations of the mansions, as well as her own modernized mansion images.
Donna Woodwell, MA, is a Kepler instructor, consulting astrologer at Four Moons Astrology, host of the internet radio show Dead Astrologers Society, and writer at Astrology.com. In addition to her astrological practice, Donna is a certified hypnotist, energy healer and initiate of a Hermetic magical order. An active member of the astrological community, Donna's served on the boards of the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) and the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR).

As we journey through life, we all encounter key threshold crossings mirrored by the planetary transits. Some of these are unique to our chart whilst others are shared with everyone in our age group. The core features of these key times are archetypal in meaning as we are invited to release our false self and fully inhabit who we truly are. However, our experience and reaction to these transits is unique to each of us.
The Chiron return
April 26, 2014 from 2:00-4:00 pm Eastern Time
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DATE HAS CHANGED
This session includes an exploration of the previous phases of the Chiron Cycle in your chart (50/51)
With the return of the Chironian Centaur to his natal position in your chart, an opening takes place to allow unresolved chironian wounds to emerge into consciousness so that further healing and releasing can take place. In emerging from this process of initiation, we are invited to share whatever knowledge we have gleamed about our humanity with others. In doing so we take on the Chironian role of teacher and healer for younger generations. Today we will also explore what this might entail in the context of the planetary and energetic changes we are experiencing. We will be looking at the Chiron return in the context of the previous transits of Chiron to itself in the chart – the waxing and waning square and the opposition.
Saturdays – individually priced at $39.00
Students will receive handouts and a recording of the workshop
Last year, astrologers responded to a Kepler survey about workshops they wished were available. The two questions on writing and publishing came out on top. So we asked six published authors to help us present a series of workshops that cover the entire process of writing for publication.
The 260-day astrological calendar, also known as the sacred calendar or divinatory calendar, was used by all the major cultures up to the Aztecs, and is still being used by Mayas in the more remote sections of Mexico and Guatamala. It consists of a cycle of 20 days, each having a name and a specific symbolism, that cycles 13 times. A person's birth is recorded as occurring during one of the 20 signs, the day-sign, and also during a 13-day period or sign. Again, These are signs of time, not of space like the zodiac.
