New Online Course on Electional Astrology

Posted by on January 10, 2013 at 3:44 pmNo Comments Yet

An Introduction to Electional AstrologyI’m pleased to announce the launch of my new online course on electional astrology!

The course has been in development over the past few years, and I finally got some time to finish it this month.

Electional astrology is a branch of western astrology that is used in order to select astrologically auspicious times to begin new things, for example such as starting a business or getting married.

Part of the premise is that events themselves have birth charts, and these charts set for the moment that an event begins contain information about how things will play out in the future for whatever was initiated at that time.

If the chart set for the start of an event or undertaking will in some way indicate its future, then by extension an astrologer should be able to “elect” or “choose” specific times in which a successful outcome would be more likely. This is the purpose of electional astrology.

What is Covered in the Course

The course is based on a series of lectures, and during the lectures I cover topics such as:

  • The historical development of electional astrology.
  • Philosophical issues related to the subject and the implications for fate and free-will.
  • Basic concepts of western astrology that are utilized in elections.
  • The core rules and principles of electional astrology, according to ancient and modern sources.
  • How to apply the rules of electional astrology in practice, with numerous chart examples.

I’ve been practicing electional astrology for about 10 years now, and I’m excited to finally share the details of my research and my approach to the subject with other people.

Signing Up for the Course

You can sign up for the course or read the full course description on the Introduction to Electional Astrology Course description page.

I also teach courses on Hellenistic and horary astrology, and I offer discounts when you sign up for more than one course at the same time. See my online astrology courses page for more details.
