W111 Moving the Chart in Time - Part 2

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:

  • Seeing the life “big picture” with progressed declination and chart graphics (20th C)
  • Moving the natal chart to a relocated position and applying transits, progressions and directions (20th C)
  • Synodic Cycles of planetary pairs to the natal chart and in mundane charts (used by most cultures from the 16th C to the present), including Chiron (late 20th C)
  • Planetary Returns, including solar returns (Hellenistic origin), precessed solar returns (20th C), lunar & other planetary returns - (20th C)
  • Transits, Progressions and Directions of planets and angles to natal midpoints, asteroids and Chiron (20th C)
  • Using the graphic function of software to track transits, progressions and directions of all planetary factors in a variety of harmonics

Weekly Topics include:

  • History Review and Life Overview with a Progressed Declination Graphic. Progressed declination, reveals major life turning points at a glance, and serves as a good opener for discussion with the client at a first consultation. The progressed declination in the graphic format also provides an overview of life turning points.
  • Transits, Progressions and Directions to the Relocated Chart. When one permanently moves from the birth place, the birth time and possibly the birth date are re-set for the new location to maintain the exact same planetary positions as the natal chart, which provides additional and important information for timing and interpretation.
  • Movement of the Lunar Nodes and Major Asteroids to the Natal Chart. These are important indicators of major life lessons. Students also explore the mythological significance of the most commonly used asteroids to interpret their transits, progressions and directions to the natal chart planets, angles and sensitive points.
  • Synodic Cycles of Outer Planetary Pairs to Natal & Mundane Interpretation. The convergence of two or more hard aspect cycles of outer planets in real time not only marks mundane affairs, but also impact people whose personal planets, angles or sensitive points are activated.
  • Transits, Progressions and Directions to Natal Midpoints particularly Sun, Moon, Ascendant and Midheaven. Students will also assess the importance of midpoints shared by multiple planets.
  • Solar Returns with and without Precession, and Relocation for the Solar Return. Additional modes of interpretation can be found in Solar Returns, both precessed and relocated.
  • Moving the Solar Return. Movement of the Solar Return angles, the Progressed Moon and transiting Sun serve as timing triggers to unfold the promise of the Solar Return chart during the year.
  • The Lunar Return and Other Planetary Returns. These returns add interpretive detail for the time frame related to their orbits. Some astrologers consider returns for each of the planets to reveal development stages according to the nature of that planet and for the duration of its natural cycle.
  • Student Presentations and/or Direct and Converse Movement of the Angles to the Natal Chart; Combining and Refining Basic Chart Timing
