Chris Brennan - Electional Astrology: Rules for Successful Inceptions

Electional astrology is used in order to select auspicious times to begin new undertakings. The premise is that an astrological chart set for the start of an event will reflect its future. By extension, an astrologer can choose or “elect” specific times to begin things when a successful outcome will be more likely. This lecture will cover the principles of electional astrology, outlining some traditional and modern considerations that are used to identify auspicious charts.

Zdenek Bohuslav - A Traditional Approach

The roots of astrological tradition can be found  in the earlier works of Dorotheus of Sidon, Vettius Valens, Claudios Ptolemy and others, but part of what is considered traditional astrology today, especially when emphasizing a more structured approach to delineation, is found in the later works of the 17th C. astrologer, J. B. Morin. We will illustrate his approach to essential and accidental dignities, the concept of accidental determinations, planets as significators and rulers of houses, and as pivotal causes in house combinations. 

Glenn Perry - The Birthchart as an Unfolding Story

Our astrological chart constitutes a life script, the plot of which we enact over and over in our daily lives. While the theme of one's life is often outside of conscious awareness and control, astrology provides a way of revealing, resolving, and remythologizing this drama. ​In this lecture, we will explore how aspects and planetary dispositorships expose the skeletal structure of one’s personal mythology. Emphasis is placed on how the life story is capable of being lived on successively higher levels of integration.
