Description: In this day and age, our society thrives off of our lack of knowing, understanding, and loving ourselves. When brands and businesses profit off our lack of fulfillment and distraction in the material world just to sell us the next best product to fix whatever is wrong with us or to fill whatever need we have, we end up lacking the energy, will, and resources to discover who we are. In a world that constantly tugs you to and fro between trends, unreasonable standards, and crippling pressure and expectations, do you know who you are and who you want to be? How can we use astrology as a method of continual introspection to better understand and engage with ourselves and the world around us? In what ways can astrology as a field evolve to better support our individual and societal needs? Astrology provides a cosmic look into the person you were divinely created to be and how you interact with the world around you. We go beyond horoscopes and sun-signs, and begin to dig into the depths and complexities of astrology using birth/natal charts - how the heavens aligned with the planets and constellations at the exact moment of your birth. In this course, students will learn how to use astrology as a guide on their life paths, through defining astrological terms and applying this to their own natal charts. This gained knowledge of the self will provide both freedom and grounding to allow students to better navigate their world. Students will also acknowledge and engage with astrology’s history and how that fits, or does not, into our changing world’s needs.
