An Introduction to Astrology

With the Cauldon Black 

The ancient art of astrology is no exception to the information inundation of our current age. In a time of abundant astrological information, the newcomer is often hard pressed to discern between the vast corpus of interpretations, transits, and varied styles. Using metaphor, imagery, and most importantly, the elegant conceptual tools provided by traditional astrology, this class seeks to give the newcomer the means to both discern and imagine how this corpus may apply within their particular lives.

The four-fold structure of planets, signs, houses, and aspects, give us the rudimentary tools to analyze any and all charts as well as more complex astrological concepts. Additionally, we may use these tools to begin a structured approach within the world of astrological magic; the basis of much talismanic and working electional magic being these same tools.

With an emphasis on conceptual framework, the class is befitting for the absolute beginner to the seasoned astrologer. No prior knowledge of astrology is necessary!
