CS202: Classical Mundane Astrology
Mundane Astrology has developed along exciting new lines since the advent of World War II. British astrologers were confronted with the difficulties imposed by the prediction of war between neighboring states, where many of the traditional mundane charts might not differ significantly. The innovations of the 1940’s were further enhanced by the development of a true locational astrology, a feat too difficult to practice meaningfully until the advent of computer power. However, these developments occurred at a time in astrology in which prediction had not merely lost its edge, but was actively discouraged by many astrologers as being unethical.
Classical Astrology has returned the gloss to prediction. And so now it is time to re- examine the traditional mundane techniques in the light of new developments. This Course teaches the classical styles of mundane analysis, and then compares them with modern developments, allowing the student to work with both styles together in a meaningful fashion.
This Course assumes a basic knowledge of classical natal and interrogatory astrology, as taught in Introduction to Classical Astrology and Classical Studies in Horary.
Lee’s take on adult education? Strictly business! She won’t waste your time on exercises that don’t teach you how to do the method she is presenting. And that is the purpose of a teacher, after all – not to impress you, not to overwhelm you – but to give you an introduction to the material in a way that you leave the course better educated – which means not only knowing more about the material, but being able to ask questions, and explore more on your own.
But the real value of this Course is not the lessons, but the opportunity to learn from your own examples. These become the subject for a mentoring environment where personal feedback accelerates your learning. This Course gives you the opportunity to work with Lee, not simply read Lee’s books and Course materials.
By the final session, the student should be able to make predictions of mundane developments. To pass the Course, the work submitted must demonstrate a consistently high quality. Lessons may be submitted in either English or French, and may be submitted by e-mail, snail mail, or fax.
