DPL-5 Introduction to Mundane Astrology

9 Class Meetings
Prerequisites: PSM-1 and PSM-2 in the Professional Studies Module or or knowledge of topics taught therein.

Course Description:

J. Lee Lehman, PhD, Instructor

Mundane astrology is arguably the oldest branch of astrology. It is devoted to the study of events on a larger scale than individual human beings. Astro-meteorology (the study of astrological influences upon weather) is a sub-branch, but the main track studies the correlation of the events confronting groups of people – tribes, cities, states, businesses – and astrological events.

Computer Programs:Students will be expected to generate the following types of charts and printout: ingresses, eclipses, transits, and astrocartography maps. Programs which would perform these functions include Solar Fire, Kepler, and Sirius.

Homework:All homework is due 48 hours before class. Two-page essays are ideal, but content is more important than length. If you have more to say, go for it. If it’s short, that can be fine, too.
