DPL01 Forcasting: Pinpointing Major Themes

9 Class Meetings
Prerequisites: Must have completed the Natal Studies Module. Due to the amount of homework in this class it is not recommended that you take another class with this one.

Course Description:

This course introduces transits and various ways to move the chart in time. Modern and Classical forecasting techniques that hold their influence for 6 months to a year are covered. The student will work with 3 case study events as they build the event theme via the techniques relevant to delivering a modern astrology consultation. The student will use the same three case study events to build the theme via the techniques relevant to delivering a classical astrology consultation. Techniques that are used in both approaches will be covered comparatively in their weeks.

By the end of the course students will have the tools necessary to provide yearly client readings. DPL02 will continue where this course leaves off and teach the student to time their forecasts within the year.
