- The meanings of interceptions.
- Essential dignities - what it means to have a planet in rulership or exaltation (as well their opposite, in detriment or fall).

Size of class
Please note that course size is limited to fifteen participants to allow us to offer input and support to each student in the most direct manner. We therefore encourage early application to ensure your place on this course.
Language - what level of English do I need to join the on-line Commencement Courses?
All teaching for the on-line Commencement Courses is in English. Applicants must satisfy themselves and the organisers of the on-line Intensives that their English is of a standard high enough for them to be able to understand and follow arguments written and presented in fluent English.
How do the On-Line Commencement Courses work?
Where do I go?
You participate in the comfort of your own home and connect with the tutor, Darrelyn Gunzburg (co-principal of Astro Logos, author of Life After Grief: An Astrological Guide to Dealing with Loss (2004), AstroGraphology, the hidden link between your horoscope and your handwriting (2009), co-author of the Visual Astrology Newsletter and author of the Studyshops, Delineation: Unfolding the Story Within a Chart, The Horoscope's Angles and The Houses) in an online virtual classroom where you can see and hear the other students.
What equipment do I need?
We use the online meeting platform of WebEx which students are given a special link to join the seminar. You need a computer (PC or MAC) with a headset and a webcam. If you are running a PC you will be able to record the video conference on your own computer. If you are running a MAC or do not wish to record the classes yourself we can record the seminar and arrange to get it to you.
Can I continue on studying with Astro Logos like this?
These two Commencement Courses act as stand-alone courses for those who wish to step forward with their basic astrology and learn to read simple aspects in a chart better. However, for those who would like to study for course accreditation with Astro Logos and continue on to reading and interpreting whole charts, we offer students the option of continuing on into the on-line Intensive Aspects of Your Chart: Part 2 which deepens the work.

Some feedback from the Online Commencement Courses:
"I am very excited about the way we work through CloudMeeting. This is an excellent opportunity to follow your lessons without going to England and still see the other students. And I very much like the way you give us time to think about the things you say during class. It is also absolutely great to work with fellow students on Skype out of class time as I need to learn to (dare to) express what I see in a chart. And to learn to combine factors that do not always seem to match ;-) And yes, I do feel that we have enough time to speak and add in questions."
"Reading my course mates' assignments and Darrelyn's notes on them was what I enjoyed the best. The clarity of the concepts and the speed on learning in this way are really amazing. This is a very hands on way of learning astrology and it is what I was looking for. I have really loved it and I am amazed on the progress I have made and on what I can do now. I am not saying with this that I am good at it but at least now I can do something. I am very happy I found this course right on time and I am very thankful for had having the opportunity of taking it. Darrelyn is an excellent teacher and I feel privileged by being her student. I hope I can continue to be so."
"I have enjoyed the humorous but well-informed input from Darrelyn and the class mates. I have loved to read other people's essays and learn from them. I have enjoyed to see how the picture of an aspect focuses enormously when all our assignments are read in conjunction. Thank you all. Working in this e-community and learning many insight of astrology has been a pleasure!"
"The clarity which Darrelyn is teaching is an awesome tool, because when confronted with a chart, that "where do you begin," dilemma is paralysing.... To all the fellow students, it is wonderful to work with such a high standard of participation."
"I've really enjoyed seeing how others tease out their analysis of the very same charts / materials. Darrelyn is a marvel at keeping us on track and helping the interpretation - she's firm and yet still very good humoured and very smart... brill, in fact!"
"I have greatly enjoyed the class. I got just what I wanted, which was how to combine all the random ingredients of a chart in a meaningful way. This is how astrology should be taught!"
