Interpreting the Ascendant in Readings

4 Class Meetings
Prerequisites: Beginners to practitioners with basic knowledge of natal astrology and the general significance of transits and progressions/directions

Course Description:

All too often, the Ascendant, our entry vehicle and “spaceship” for navigating the outside world, is given short shrift in readings. Since the Ascendant is the primary interface between your client and his or her life in the outside world, astrologers should give it just as much time and attention in their interpretations as they give the Sun or the Moon. Without a healthy response to his or her Ascendant, it’s as if your client is locked into low Earth orbit but has neither fully landed nor has much clarity about what to do after touching down here.

There’s a difference between the depth of an astrologer’s knowledge of an astrological configuration, and how that configuration is best presented in order to maximize a client’s understanding and retention, while minimizing the chance that he or she will leave the reading feeling confused or overwhelmed.

In other words, there’s a difference between what you know versus what you say and how you say it.

You’ll come away from these four class sessions with some practical techniques, developed over Jodie’s 35 years of doing readings, for analyzing the significance of the Ascendant, its ruler and natal aspects, and the dynamic events involving this crucial part of a birth chart. Instead of rote definitions or jargon, Jodie focuses on creative, accessible interpretive strategies that will help your readings come alive, engage your clients, and leave them well-informed and smiling.
