Rectification Basics, with Jodie Forrest

Jodie Forrest

Jodie Forrest

Rectification of the birth time is the technique to determine the correct birth time based on the astrological events affecting the native’s chart that are associated with significant life events in the past. The ability to rectify the birth time is a requirement for certification with NCGR and other astrological organizations and a very helpful tool in consulting work with clients.

This course consists of six class meetings, and it is available for credit to students in the IAA Diploma program, and also for audit to others who do not require a credit. The first class is May 12, 2020. Jodie tell you a little about her course in the video below.

A Look at the Month Ahead: A Monthly Series with Diane Trimbath

Diane Trimbath

Diane Trimbath

Join Diane Trimbath to learn about new opportunities or “shifts of focus” in store for us each month, as she reviews the energies coming in from our sky in IAA’s new monthly series, “A Look at the Month Ahead.” Find out how, when, and where these changes may influence YOUR life (based on your Sun sign). Diane will be holding these meetings once a month, but registration for each meeting is separate — you do not need to sign up for the entire series or make any long-term commitment. Everyone is welcome, you do not need any astrological background to participate. Visit the registration page to see the scheduled dates. The next meeting is Saturday, May 30th. Watch an excerpt from the January 2020 lecture below, or view other recent videos here.

Many classes in the Professional Training Department are also available to audit. When offered, you can audit a class for a lower tuition fee if you do not require the class for credit to graduate. When you audit a class, you are not required to do homework or pass any exams, but you also will not receive any credit. Use the correct link to register, depending on whether you need the credit or not. Not all classes offer the audit option.
