  • Be able to recognize the astrological symbols for the planets, lunar nodes and the twelve signs.
  • Be familiar with the twelve houses and their general meaning.
  • The last two modules require that you know the difference between a birth chart and a current transit to the birth chart, i.e. “what is a transit?”.
  • The last two modules will be easier for students who already know how to read and use a basic ephemeris for daily planetary positions.
  • A solid knowledge of beginning astrology is required to understand this material. Intermediate astrologers will of course, perform best, but a dedicated and intelligent beginning student may follow the lesson plan well if they will put in focused time and supplement their learning with additional basic astrology materials.

For each lesson, compare the planet or element studied with its placement in the chart of your own chart samples.

Collect, collect, collect! There are also published chart collections of famous persons that are useful if you have access to their health history or cause of death.
