5. Symmetrical Astrology

5.2. E513A Introduction to Uranian Astrology (5 weeks)

Instructor: Madalyn Hillis-Dineen

Many astrologers have heard the term Uranian Astrology, but do you know how useful it can be? The Uranian system of astrology was developed by Alfred Witte (1878-1943) in the early part of the twentieth century. Witte postulated that the character and destiny of a person are not solely determined by the aspects between the planets but is seen primarily through the symmetry of the planets. 

This mini-course provides an overview of the system, touching on the main aspects of Uranian astrology: a discussion of the 6 personal points; the cardinal axis and antiscia; midpoints, sensitive points, and planetary pictures; the use of the 360- and 90-degree dials; the hypothetical planets and their meaning in both a personal and mundane context; forecasting the general trends for the year as well as daily transits; and, the use of the dials, midpoints and planetary pictures in synastry.

The sub-title of the Uranian classic by Witte and Lefeldt, "Rules for Planetary Pictures," is The Astrology of Tomorrow and in many respects, this system has come of age with the advent of modern astrological tools such as Nova Chartwheels.
