Astrology 101 with Scarlet

Astrology 101

Introduction Sat June 25th, 2-4pm $20 cash fee

8 Week Series Class, Wed Jun 29th-Aug 17, 7-9pm $20 per class, $120 for full series by end of Week 1 class.

“So what benefit can I gain from understanding my natal chart anyway?” “I’m a Leo and my partner is a Scorpio.. is our relationship really doomed?” “Does the my astrological chart really hold my fate?” “So once and for all, did my sign change or didn’t it?” If these questions resonate with you or you have similar questions of your own… or you’d simply like to get a firmer handle on the history and nature of astrology, please join us for a lively and fun interactive discussion covering a broad overview of this ancient scientific art. We’ll begin with an introduction that will address the foundation of Western Tropical astrology, some of the esoteric benefits astrology can offer, and hopefully begin to demystify it all by discussing frequently asked questions. The series will continue throughout an 8 week course exploring some of the fundamental building blocks to interpreting a chart such as: signs, symbols, houses, planetary & luminary energies, elements, modalities, quadrants, angles, aspects, orbs, and much more. Each guest of the series will receive a complimentary natal chart wheel to work with during the classes, as we will be taking a hands-on approach in our practice. At the end of the 8 week course, guests will gain familiarity in their exploration of charts and begin to synthesize the accumulated knowledge into a more complete ‘whole’.

**The 8 week series will start on June 29th, and continue on Wednesday evening through August 17th. 7-9pm $20 per class or $120 if paid at the beginning of the series.

Basic outline of class topics, some may shift a bit as the class gets more or less in depth as the series goes along, all will be covered by the time we are done with week 8.
