Module 4 (7 sessions)
Transits and Solar Returns
Transits: For most astrologers, the preferred method of forecasting. Positions of planets in their current cycles are interpreted as influencing those in the natal chart.
Solar Return Chart: The new chart you get every birthday. Believed to indicate the overall trends for the coming year.

Module 5 (7 sessions)
Secondary Progressions
A symbolic form of forecasting where the natal chart ‘unfolds’ at the rate of one day per year. Often used as a tool to interpret internal shifts rather than external events.
The module ends by learning a system to help prioritize and interpret the forecasting data collected from transits, solar returns, and progressions.

Module 6 (7 sessions)
Relationships

Synastry
Using chart comparison in the study of a relationship – whether personal or business. Learn how two people support one another or “push each other’s buttons”.

The Composite Chart
A symbolic chart created by the midpoints of planets from the charts of two people. Seen as a chart that describes the essence of the relationship as a unit unto itself.
