With Ricky Williams
“Astro-” means stars and “-logy” refers to logos, which is usually translated from Greek into “word” or “speech”. Astrology is a tool that allows us to hear, speak and understand the language of the Cosmos, the Universe, the Gods, the Goddess, Nature, God — whatever you like to call It.
This course is an introduction to the language of astrology — and in order to understand any language, we must first learn its alphabet.
Session 1 will introduce the idea of symbolic thinking and astrological archetypes, and explain how they form the basis of astrological thinking.
Planets, Signs and Houses
In Session 2, we will discuss the three overlapping symbol systems of the 10 Planets, the 12 signs and the 12 houses that form the basis of the Astrological “Alphabet”.
In Sessions 3 through 6, we will go in-depth into the planets, signs and houses individually by element:
Session 3: Water
Session 4: Fire
Session 5: Earth
Session 6: Air
At the end of Session 6, time permitting, we will discuss how to practically apply these cosmic perspectives into the lives of this course’s participants.Although the concepts in this course require a moderate degree of spiritual development to grasp, participants will not need any prior astrological understanding beyond that which gave rise to an interest in taking this course.
