9.14. MD100 Medical Astrology

Instructors: Judith Hill, Marcos Pratchett, William Morris

This course is designed to be a historically inclusive, in-depth, and practical introduction to medical astrology. By the end of the course, students will have an overview of the development of medical astrology and its potential applications, as well as the legal, ethical, and philosophical principles informing its use. 

Students will be equipped with the techniques to hold a medical astrological evaluation (within the bounds of their own medical knowledge, legal permissions, and personal competence). These procedures will include the medical assessment of birth charts, consultation charts and decumbitures, transits, profections, and solar returns for the purposes of understanding medical concerns from astrological perspectives. The course covers traditional concepts of Temperament from both Elemental and Humoral frameworks and will enable students to utilize astrology to help clients dealing with medical issues in practical and responsible ways.
