Learning Astrology

Intermediate Astrology:  Aspects, Configurations, Patterns, and Natal Chart Interpretation

Instructor:  Anne Reith, Ph.D.


This is where astrology “gets good”!

In Beginning Astrology: Understanding Yourself and Others, Anne focused on helping you learn about yourself from the perspective of your Natal (AKA Birth) Chart.  In the process, you built a firm foundation upon which to build a sturdy house (i.e., your future learning in the field of astrology).

During this Intermediate Astrology: Aspects, Configurations, Patterns, and Natal Chart Interpretation course, it’s time to build that house on your solid foundation!  You will learn about which rooms within the house and which players in those rooms (e.g., planets, nodes) work harmoniously together and which are more challenging.

This intermediate-level knowledge will be revealed through the study of the geometric relationship (called aspects) between the planets.  Once aspects are understood, then specific planetary configurations and patterns can be identified that make the chart literally “come alive”!

Once you understand astrological concepts such as aspects, configurations, and planetary patterns, you have the information you need to do a basic natal chart interpretation.  But where do you start with integrating all this information about a natal chart?  Anne will provide you with worksheets and guidance in how to pull everything together, and she will also provide guidance about how to present information in a compassionate and ethical manner.  It is at the intermediate level that the student of astrology truly begins to understand the depth and breadth of knowledge that can be gained from the study of a natal birth chart.

Intermediate Astrology Course Objectives

  • Discover how “aspects” make a chart come alive (e.g., conjunctions, squares, trines, oppositions)
  • Expand your understanding of aspects by including important “configurations” when exploring charts (e.g., t-squares, grand trines, stelliums, grand crosses)
  • Explore planetary patterns as a way to deepen your understanding of a chart (e.g., bowl, see-saw, locomotive)
  • Receive extensive instruction in how to do natal chart interpretations
  • Learn important ethics and guidelines when doing chart interpretations


What Is Included in the Intermediate Astrology Course

  • An extensive Intermediate Astrology manual presented in an easy-to-use workbook format
  • In-person instruction with time for questions
  • A copy of your natal (AKA birth) chart, aspectarian, and other supportive print-outs
  • The opportunity to view an online video of each astrology class.  Each video will be available for 1 month following class meetings, and anyone who is registered for the course will be given access to it.  This is a wonderful opportunity for (a) those who were present at the class and would like to review some or all of the class content in order to “lock in the learning” and (b) for those who have to miss a class for any reason.

NOTE ABOUT VIDEOS:  The videos of each class meeting are ONLY provided for those who are enrolled in the course and either had to miss a class or would like to review what was covered.  Unfortunately, Anne’s courses are not yet set up for distance-learning opportunities.  You must be able to attend each class in person.  However, Anne does hope to convert many of her courses to online classes in the future.  Therefore, please be sure to join Anne’s Online Community so you can be informed when the online courses  become available.


Special Requirement of All Students Enrolled in Intermediate Astrology Course

Learning astrological information is a cumulative process (i.e., understanding new information requires understanding previously presented information).  Therefore, if you enroll in this course, you will need to make a commitment to review the video of a missed class before attending the next class.  Time cannot and will not be spent in the next class getting you “caught up.”


How to Repeat the Intermediate Astrology Course for a Reduced Fee

A limited number of seats in this course will be made available for those who have previously taken Anne’s multi-part Intermediate Astrology course.  Contact Anne in order to determine if you are eligible for the reduced fee and to discuss payment options.


Money Back Guarantee

If you are not completely satisfied with the course, you can receive a full refund of your tuition.  However, in order to qualify, you must (a) request a refund before the 2nd class meeting and (b) return the workbook.
