Coming in Jan 2019
New one year Comprehensive Certificate Course on The Astrology of Relationships, including a section on The Emerging Paradigm of Soul Centered Loving Relationships
With guest presentations by some of the foremost international astrologers including : Nadiya Shah, April Elliott Kent Rick Levine, Rachel Lang, Christopher Renstrom and Linda Furiate
Relationships are a key feature of all our lives including intimate partnerships, family, and friendships, as well as work and community relationships. It’s not surprising that they are a core area in any astrologer’s work. Yet there is little specialized training in relationship astrology in our field – until now!
This course is ideal for intermediate/advanced students of astrology, professional astrologers, and anyone who is passionate about astrology and would like to gain a deeper insight into relationship astrology.
You will learn in-depth skills to work with your own relationships as well as with clients. While romantic relationships are a key focus of the course, you’ll also learn about working with parent/child, coworker, friendships, creative partners, and other relationship forms. Whilst covering the core foundations of Relationship Astrology, this dynamic innovative course aims to also address the evolving nature of gender, sexuality, and relationships, and offers ways we can support clients towards creating new heart-centred relationships based on a new relationship paradigm.
The course is offered online via pre-recorded presentations which you can access on your own schedule, and is composed of two 8-week terms and one 10 week term. The third term includes presentations by skilled relationship astrologers from around the world. Self-study via recorded lectures is augmented by online class discussions via group chat, plus one live group supervision session per term and a 1:1 tutorial with Margaret or Armand.
Each term includes a term assignment that is completed on the student’s own time schedule. Students who successfully complete all three terms will receive a certificate of accomplishment in Relationship Astrology.
Prerequisite knowledge includes a basic working knowledge of astrology: planets, signs, houses, and aspects. Familiarity with doing chart analysis is required, and some experience in doing actual astrology consultations is ideal, although not a requirement. No prior experience with synastry or composite charts is necessary, although it is helpful.
