Nov 12-13 , 2016
Diane Clarke and Naomi C Bennett, instructors
Beginner Class is Saturday Nov 12 9:30am-4:30pm
Intermediate Class is Sunday Nov 13 10am-5pm
This is a two part class that is designed to bring a beginner student up to the level of chart interpretation quickly. It can be a big leap from learning the fundamentals of astrology to being able to interpret a chart into personality characteristics or to begin to predict current or future events. Early Bird Pricing is $50 for each day.
Saturday is dedicated to the basic design of how astrology is structured using the Tobey System. Astrology is a form of mathematical design that is present in all life forms. Planets, Signs, Houses and Aspects all follow principles based on design. Naomi will be presenting how these parts of astrology fit perfectly into a integrated pattern that few astrology books present. The Tobey System is unique in that the psychological motivations that drive behavior are clearly driven by our past and the need to push ourselves into the future. Few astrology teachers understand or teach the underlying driving forces that shape behavior. Even if a student has already studied the basics of astrology, there will be a fresh and new perspective given on how to approach a chart from a psychological point of view. Two textbooks are included with the class tuition on Saturday along with handouts for future study and reference. We will use student charts for examples and discussion so bring your birth data.
Sunday is dedicated to chart interpretation by using angles, signs and houses. It can be daunting to take these elements and combine them into a narrative. Using student charts, we start with the planets in signs, add the nature of the house, and then add the aspects to build an interpretation model using the Tobey System. It can get complicated but Diane has four decades of leading students into a quick mastery of combining these layers into a narrative of interpretation. There will be a quick review of basics for the first hour for new students and then we leap into chart analysis. This is an interactive structure so be ready to speak up and share. Handouts will be given for reference.
This will be held at Naomi Bennett’s home at 1303 Kittansett Cove, Austin, Tx 78746. Bring your lunch box.
After Nov 10th the cost is $60 for each day or $120 total Please RSVP since class is limited to 12. Payment by cash, check or Paypal. Send an email to Naomi at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP since attendance is limited to 12.
