Prerequisites: Basic natal astrology 

This course shows students how to understand and interpret basic A*C*G. It  explores astro-mapping history and development in modern times. The course covers line meanings and angle placements as well as connections to natal and relocated charts as they interact to provide significant astro-mapping information.

  • themes connected with specific planet-angle combinations 
  • influence of crossing lines and shadowed planets 
  • common cartography software and usage 
  • desirable planets to emphasize through visitation or relocation
