DPL-5: Introduction to Horary Astrology

Prerequisites:  IAA Students are required to complete the Natal Studies Module and the Professional Studies Module. Outside students need an advanced education. This course is one of the electives for Professional Training students to become a graduate. If you are not an IAA Diploma Program student, you may access this course (no homework, no exams, no credit) for a lesser price.

This class will introduce students to foundations of classical horary astrology.

Course Objectives:

  • Learn basic principles of horary astrology including: considerations against judgment, chart’s radicality, planetary archetypes and their expression, dignities and debilities, and basic rules of judgment.
  • Get a step-by-step structured approach to understanding charts’ symbolism, while learning to make interpretations with clarity, confidence, and accuracy.
  • Learn how to make judgments about important spheres of life: relationships, career, health, and financial questions, and searching for missing items/people.
  • Understand more advanced horary techniques such as elemental nature of planets, receptions, and planetary dignities to get fine and specific detail about the horary question, not just a yes or no answer.
  • Get to practice on different charts each week to strengthen the knowledge received.
