Astrology is the study of cycles. But I’ve recently discovered that the study of astrology has cycles of its own. You begin with the basics, learning how the planets, signs, and houses follow the rules of grammar and syntax of the language of astrology. You use keywords for reference as we move from simple sentences, to complex and compound sentences, to entire paragraphs of astrological interpretation. Soon, you can explore the entire natal chart with confidence, answering the most common questions clients have about their money, career, relationships, and happiness.
In many ways, this issue was made possible by the students in the 2017 Online Relationship Astrology Class. The intention of that class is to develop synthesized chart interpretation skills, but this year, the students were struggling with the material. I realized that the approach we had been taking for chart interpretation didn’t address the skills needed for synthesized interpretation. They were stuck at the level of keywords but never learned how to activate those keywords so they could build on them. I spent more than two months of intense exploration and experimentation that will result in substantial improvements to all of my classes in 2018. Not only did I come out of this with a deeper understanding of the qualities of the elements, modalities, and signs, but I also created a new model for synthesized chart interpretation. Read about it in Putting it Together: How to Construct a Synthesized Chart Interpretation starting on page 48.
Look for an announcement about the 2018 class schedule early next month. I'm making some exciting updates to the entire course curriculum, so now is the perfect time to begin your journey to becoming a Talented Astrologer!
Until next time, thank you for being a part of The Real Astrology Academy!
