Medieval astrology, unlike the traditional astrology of William Lilly, lends itself to the modern astrologer's tool kit as it is a tapestry of techniques and philosophy. Unlike psychological astrology or modern astrology in medieval astrology the cosmos is external of the individual focused on the world around the individual. However when combined with the internal cosmology of contemporary astrology one gains a beautifully complete astrological tool of working with both the inner psyche of the individual as well as their outer world. This blend, like a fine wine, produces an insightful, compassionate and rich astrology.
Who can enrol?
The module is open to all astrologers who have a basic, standard astrological background, achieved after the first two years of study, for this course is designed to be an overlay to your already-solid basis of either psychological or traditional astrology and to be a gateway for astrologers into the enthralling workings of Medieval Astrology.
If you are enroling in this module as a One-Off module and are new to Astro Logos then you will need to complete the Requests for Admission on-line form.
