Astrology is more than just sun signs. It reveals personal strengths, relationship possibilities, best places to live, answers questions in the moment and shows the best time to start something. In this fun course we explore some of the many facets of astrology using birth charts and questions you bring. We will uncover free and inexpensive web resources. This class is intended to expose the student to some interesting applications of astrology but not go into depth in any one of them. Let's take off into the skies and bring back the myriad of its rich meaning to our lives! Class is limited to 10 students due to the personal nature of content.
