The course is online and shows a video feed of our Tutor (and his living room and dog in the background) as well as a chat box for us students and a slide show. Such an amazing feeling to be sat in my living room, being taught Astrology and sharing the experience of this with 30 (!) other like minded fellow beings! The Astrology community had come to my living room, to my desk somehow, very exciting!
As expected the lesson was largely of what I already knew, the glyphs, the order of the planets, modalities and elements, but it all the same a great feeling to go through the basics and recognise these names and terms that I have largely only read, being self-taught, and hear them being referred to by John.
Starting with the Sun and connecting its properties to the God Apollo and the Oracle of Delphi connecting to ancient myth and that realm of Archetypes which Jung used prominently in his therapy work, enchanting!
I am already looking forward to next weeks lesson! Until then I am making good use of learning from The Astrology Podcast theastrologypodcast.com/ with Chris Brennan, which is packed with good interviews (although a lot of it goes over my head as a beginner it still soakes me in Astology!
