A New Way of Learning - Little and Often
Reading Charts 1 - A focus on aspects to find the patterns in a chart.
This is the Inaugural Module, which starts Monday 1 October 2018.
Please note this short course is limited in number and is now half full.
How do we learn anything? Little and often!
Here is the idea...
This course is focused on learning to work with complex aspects and begin to use that knowledge to seeing the unique patterns within a horoscope. The course is designed to run over three months. Every month (which embraces a five week period) you listen to four short 12-15 minute lectures (these can play on your phone) and then you engage in a forum. You can do this all at once at the beginning of the month or you can pace yourself over the month. When you engage in the forum, you will be in conversation with fellow students, along with Darrelyn Gunzburg who will be guiding the discussion.
The Learning Centre
Upon enrolment you will, before the start ot the module, be given your password and access to the Moodle Astro Logos Learning Centre. You can visit this now, however before you enrol you will only have access to the front page. The link is on the top RIGHT hand corner of every page of this website - STUDENT LOGIN.
What is covered in the Reading Charts Module 1 - Understanding Aspects?
In brief, we look at all components of what makes an aspect important in a horoscope and how, by understanding them in depth, a pattern will begin to emerge. The lectures cover everything necessary from the technical side of orbs right through to knowing when an aspects is central to the story of the chart. Look at this 8 minute video in which Darrelyn gives a preview of the entire module. It will also give you a taste of the style of the lectures in the module.
At the end of every monthly segment, before the next month's material is opened up on Moodle, there will be an online tutorial. In this tutorial your questions are answered and additional points will be discussed. This tutorial will be recorded and the resulting MP4 video file will be emailed out to each student the next day. It will also be made available on the Moodle module page. If you cannot come to the tutorial you can submit questions which will be discussed.
What level of astrology do I need?
The module is aimed at astrologers who know the basic components of a chart: the different meanings of the houses, and the nature of the planets. As long as you have those pieces in place, even if you are a little unsure how it all goes together, then you will have sufficient knowledge for the module. The module, through lectures, active forum conversations, discussions of student examples as a group, plus the tutorial, is designed to lift your chart readings skills to a higher level, whatever your starting point.
Do I get a qualification?
A certificate of successful completion will be awarded to students who have engaged with the module by being active on the forum and posting material for at least three out of four of the topics listed per month and shown a suitable level of understanding of the material. If we are unsure of your ablity we may ask you to submit a written delination of a aspect. .
