Eclipse Class

Wednesdays, April 10 - 24,   7:00 - 8:30 p.m.  CT

ISandy Rodecknterpreting eclipses is a great way to add to your arsenal of tools for forecasting trends and upcoming events.  Learning about how to interpret eclipses and that not all eclipses are equal is what this class is about.  Big events get set up by eclipses and identifying the cycles of solar and lunar eclipses allows you to go deeper into your astrology.  There will be several handouts, and it is recommended you have access to or have the two following books:  The New American Ephemeris for the 20th Century 1900-2000 at Midnight the Michelsen Memorial Edition, Rique Pottenger, Based on the earlier work of Neil F. Michelsen and the Ephemeris for the 21th Century 2000-2100 at Midnight the Michelsen Memorial Edition, Rique Pottenger, Based on the earlier work of Neil F. Michelsen.

Both of these books can be ordered through the Quest Book Store at (630) 665-0123.  After registering for this class, please send your "astro coordinates" to Sandy Rodeck at sandy@sandyrodeck.com which includes your full date of birth, exact time of birth and place (city/state/country/province).  Sandy is more than happy to answer any questions you may have prior to your registration (or after) and she may be reached at (630) 302-0704.

April 10th:  Basics of the Eclipses:  Solar and Lunar, the different types, plus phases of the moon and their meanings.
April 17th:  Expanding on the basics, identifying Saros cycles, your pre and post natal eclipses and the best websites to use when doing your research.
April 24th: This last class takes place the day before the first eclipse of 2013.  This class will be the most interactive and fun of all!  We will be taking some of your personal charts and your new tools of interpretation right to the very heart of your birth "natal" promise.

Intermediate Astrology II

Future Directions: Setting Up and Interpreting Transits, Progressions, Eclipses and Solar Arc around the Natal Chart

Tuesdays, April 23 - May 14, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m CT

DaveG_F

This four-week class is a follow-up to the Intermediate I class in that we will continue to look at and interpret charts, but we will also start directing them into the future. Each week we will be examining, in depth, a new system of prognostication.

Week one will cover the outer planets transiting over the chart. Week two, moving the entire chart forward by way of secondary progressions. Week three we will examine the important triggering factor of eclipses, and week four we will look at Solar Arc direction.

If you feel you are ready to start looking at future cycles over your own chart and the charts of family members, friends or even famous people in the news, then this class is for you! The instructor can provide the charts you wish. All you have to do is study, listen, ask lots of questions and be interactive over the web. This class will be fun and it will help make promising astrology students into astrologers. For those already familiar with directing a chart into the future this class will provide excellent practice.
