Module 3 completes the process begun in Module 1 of taking the chart apart into its component parts (the signs, planets and houses) by thoroughly explaining the relationship between these: The Aspects.
A planetary aspect is an evolutionary gate within the cycle created by any two planets as they separate and return to each other over the course of time. An aspect is determined by the number of degrees separating the two planets, and each has its own specific interpretation. Each has a unique dynamic and intention that reveals how the two planets relate to one another, what kind of "conversation" they are having together, and how to embrace or resolve the challenges and opportunities such dynamics can bring.
Upon completion of these three modules, you will be able to take a chart apart, examine each of its unique components/aspects, and begin to form a synthesized interpretation (brought in Module 4).
Introduction to Aspects and Phases
with Ari Moshe Wolfe
In this first week Ari Moshe will introduce aspects and the 8 phases. He will teach the philosophy and meaning of aspects and phases from an evolutionary perspective, explaining how they represent inter-planetary relationships as well essential cycles manifesting throughout our lives. He will teach the terminology, identification skills and basic practice skills that we will be applying repeatedly throughout this entire module (and the rest of our lives!). This class is a fundamental beginning step towards ultimately understanding the holistic relationship of the entire chart with itself.
The 8 Lunar Phases
with Christina Caudill
The 8 Lunar Phases, aka Phases of the Moon, are perhaps the most basic astrological example of cycles of development and planetary pairs. The Lunar Phases are not just about the Moon itself and its own brightness or shadow, they are formed by the relationship of the Moon relative to the Sun, the Moon’s brightness or darkness reflecting the Sun’s light or shadow. This interplay correlates to a process of conscious purpose (Sun) and its relationship to self-identity (Moon). In this lesson, we’ll explore the 8 Lunar Phase cycle of beginnings (New Moon), initiative (Crescent), growth (First Quarter), perfection (Waxing Gibbous), illuminating (Full Moon), sharing (Disseminating), diminishing (Last Quarter), distillation (Balsamic). These phases are not only relevant for the progression of the Sun-Moon cycle, but form the basic pattern for the aspects, planetary pairs and phases in subsequent lessons.
Analyzing Aspects Part 1:
The Waxing Aspects from Conjunction to Opposition
with Maurice Fernandez
Analyzing Aspects, from Conjunction to Opposition. By Maurice Fernandez Maurice will provide a holistic perspective on Aspects, how they are in fact each a fragment of a larger cycle. With such a perspective in mind, he will explain the nature of the waxing aspects, from the Conjunction, to the opening Semi-Sextile, Sextile, Square, Trine, Quincunx, and Opposition – which are the building blocks of chart analysis.
Analyzing Aspects Part 2:
The Waning Aspects from Opposition to Balsamic Conjunction
with Timothy Halloran
Timothy will explain the nature of waning aspects as they differ from waxing aspects and how each planetary aspect reflects a junction along the vaster cycle of life. Planetary aspects are fundamental to chart interpretation in order to understand how planets relate to one another creating specific evolutionary dynamics.
with Sol Jonassen
In this lesson we will go through different planetary pairs and explain how to read these in the chart. Sol will go through several examples to open the door for you to understand how to decipher and interpret the chart in an efficient, clear cut way. We will start to apply the aspects and learn how to find certain patterns when looking at a chart.
with Julija Simas
In this lesson we will be learning the different aspect combinations that create planetary patterns and geometric shapes within the chart. We will be looking at T-squares, grand trines, stelliums, Yods, mystic rectangles as well as the 9 different chart types - buckets, fans, seesaws, bowls, splashes etc. With the use of examples, Julija will then explain how these can provide valuable information for chart interpretation.
Putting It All Together
Having learned the phases, individual aspects, harmonics, planetary pairs and patterns, let’s practice identifying and interpreting them! While full chart interpretation is coming in the following module, Kaypacha will use the charts of both Mohandas Gandhi and Rudolf Steiner to demonstrate the principles taught in this module. Together we will dissect each chart, interpreting each aspect and relating that aspect to the biography of the individual. Finally, you will do the same with your own chart and have individual interpretations for each planetary pair to synthesize in Module 4.
