DPL02 Timing Techniques & Consultation

9 Class Meetings
Prerequisites: Must have completed the Natal Studies Module and DPL01 Forecasting: Pinpointing Major Themes
Price: $420 early registration discount may apply; scroll to bottom

Course Description:

The first half of this course picks up where last semester left off. After the students have identified the major theme for their study charts in a particular year, they will learn to narrow down the timing to arrive at the event date. The students will learn to employ timing techniques in a system that narrows timing as planets in particular progressions or transits speed up. Everything from last semester sets a stage for a client where a theme is noted. This theme will hold for approximately one year. This semester, we will watch for peaks within the year where events are most likely to occur. By watching tertiary progressions, minor progressions & the rest of the transits slide into place and eventually land on the date of their chosen event, students learn how to time events.

The second half of the semester focus on relocation and consultation. Mystery charts of every day people with situations one often consults an astrologer about are used. The student prepares for class as if they were preparing for a consult and receives hands on practice in a mock consultation sessions.


Class Meeting 1: Secondary Progressed Moon Phase & Declination Graphic

This week covers the phase of the secondary progressed moon. It also covers a lifetime declination graphic of the progressed Moon. Students learn the significance of the progressed moon crossing 0-North and 0-South declination as well as the peaks and valleys in the graphic of maximum north and south declination.

Class Meeting 2: Timing with the Secondary Progressed Moon

The student learns to calculate the secondary progressed Moon. We will discuss how the house of secondary progressed moon illuminates the affairs of that house. The student will learn that the length of the cycle of the secondary progressed Moon is very close to the cycle of transit Saturn.

This week we will look back upon the time frame set by the outer planet transits for the study events, and within that time frame the student will learn how the secondary Moon backs up the theme and narrows the time frame.

Class Meeting 3: Timing with Social Planet Transits

Picking up with the timing range left by the progressed moon, the student looks at transit Saturn to echo the theme and back up the timing. Then, the transiting Nodes are used to narrow the range from transit Saturn. Likewise transit Jupiter is examined to narrow the time frame from the Nodes to approximately 3 - 6 months.

Class Meeting 4: Tertiary & Minor Progressions

Tertiary Progressions move the planets one day for a month. They are the transits we experienced up to about age 3. They are explored next in our timing. The tertiary progressions will also echo the theme at hand and back up the timing of the transit Jupiter. The tertiary progressed Moon being the fastest moving tertiary progression will narrow the timing to 3 - 4 months. Transit Mars moves at the speed of the tertiary Moon so that will be examined to narrow the timing more before going on to minor progressions.

Minor Progressions move the planets one month for a year. They are the transits we experienced up to about age 6 1/2. The student picks up where they left off last week in their timing and uses the minor progressions followed by the minor progressed moon to get the event timing range close to 1 month.

Class Meeting 5: Personal Planet Transits

This week we explore Rob Hand's rules for transits in his book "Planets in Transit". We will begin with the transit of Venus, then Mercury & Sun (depending which is slower at the time, then the other) and finally using the transit Moon to arrive at the most likely event date.

Class Meeting 6: Timing From Start to Finish

This week we take a look at two major life events that are illustrated in the course ebook. We will begin in class to do the timing from start to finish and what we don't complete is homework. This prepares the student for the final exam, which will given this week and is due 2 days after the last class meeting.

The final exam in this class focuses on timing. It will be take home. The student will be given a mystery person and a three month time frame in which an event occurred. To time accurately they will have to back up outside of the three month range and use the techniques from last semester to determine what the event is and then continue on with this semester's teachings to find the date the event occurred. The student must come within 2 weeks to pass.

Class Meeting 7: Relocation & Astrolocality

This week introduces you to astrolocality. You will learn how to read the astro maps in your software to find good locations for someone to relocate to. We will also explore the relocated natal chart. However it is important to remember that we take our natal chart with us everywhere we go. The relocated chart is not a replacement chart but an additional chart.

We will use relocation examples from people that you and the instructor know who have relocated a significant distance from their birth place to come up with three case studies to explore in this class.

Class Meeting 8: Client Practice Chart #1

Both of these weeks focus on preparing for client consultation. Homework will be due before the class meets because it will be your notes for the mock client session that takes place in class 8 & 9. The client questions will be divided among the students, as the focus for their portion of the mock consultation. You will use transits, secondary progressions, solar arc directions, solar returns, eclipses and anything else deemed significant that you learned in DPL01 & DPL02 to identify the major themes arising for the client and to answer their questions.
