CHART SYNTHESIS IN ACTION

Attention all astrologers!  Want to get to the heart of any astrological chart within minutes and significantly increase your accuracy in predictive work?  This series of classes puts all you've learned about Morin's incredible methods into practice with nothing but chart delineation.

THE MORIN TRADITION FOR INTERMEDIATE ASTROLOGERS PART 2

The second part of this Morin course covers house distortions; radical vs. derived houses; diagnostic vs. prognostic signs; an in-depth study of the lights; the principle of ricochet; and, more work on analogy, determinations and judgment working directly from Morin’s texts. We’ll be putting Morin’s theories into practice by looking at our own charts and a variety of celebrity charts including Robin Williams, Farah Fawcett, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the Royal Family, Jeffrey Dahmer, Michael Jackson and more. These classes will lay the foundation for predictive astrology.  As Morin said, you can’t predict properly without understanding how planets are determined in the natal chart first.  Transits, returns, directions and progressions are just the perfection of the potential already predicted in the natal chart. If it’s not possible in the natal chart, it’s not going to happen when that transit or direction occurs.

THE MORIN TRADITION FOR INTERMEDIATE ASTROLOGERS PART 1

Learn how to synthesize astrological charts and concepts according to the work of astrological genius Jean-Baptiste Morin. Morin was a 17th century French astrologer, physician and mathematician who wrote a 26-book treatise on astrology and natural philosophy, Astrologia Gallica, that sets out a systematic and practical astrological approach. Morin intended the work to cull a reasoned and elegant system of horoscope interpretation from what he saw as a compromised Western astrological history. His approach is one of synthesis, that is, to see the natal chart as a unit. We will study the archetype; Morin’s theory of determinations; cosmic state and local determinations; the lights; universal significators; analogies; cause and effect; empty house judgment and more. We’ll put theories into practice when examining our own charts as well as the charts of Paul Bernardo, Karla Homolka, Kim Kardashian and others.

This is for budding buddhas who have been studying astrology for a few years. You know your way around, so why should it still take three hours to analyse a chart? This course is about doing more with less, about exploiting quirky imbalances at an atomic level and pursuing them, about clearing out the noise and focussing on what matters, about how to get maximum mileage out of the foundational stones of the chart when time is critical.
