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 chart (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 10-part 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, asteroids, Nodes) work harmoniously together and which interactions are more challenging.

This intermediate-level knowledge will be revealed through the study of the geometric relationship (called aspects) between the planets, asteroids, and Nodes.  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 natal chart interpretation.  But where do you begin the process of 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 present 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 chart.

Intermediate Astrology course objectives

  • Discover how “aspects” make a chart come alive (e.g., conjunctions, squares, trines, oppositions)
  • Expand your understanding of a chart by analyzing important “major planetary configurations” (e.g., t-squares, grand trines, stelliums)
  • Discuss “minor planetary configurations” that may provide supplemental information (e.g., kite formations, wedges, mystic rectangles)
  • Explore planetary patterns as a way to deepen your understanding of a chart (e.g., bowl, see-saw, locomotive)
  • Learn about additional pieces to the astrological puzzle including:
    • Element/modality dominance, weakness, & compensation
    • Mutual reception
    • Planets with many aspects
    • Planets with no aspects
    • Chart rulership
    • Planetary power
    • Indicators of psychic, medium, or healing abilities
  • 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 200+ page Intermediate Astrology manual presented in an easy-to-use workbook format
  • Live instruction with time for questions (classes are offered as a Zoom webinar)
  • A copy of your natal chart (AKA birth chart), aspectarians, and other supportive print-outs
  • The opportunity to view recordings from each class. Each class will be recorded, and each recording will be made available for the duration of the course and for an additional 2 months after the conclusion of the course. Only those registered for the course will be given access to the recordings. 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.


Distance learning opportunity

This course is being offered online as a Zoom webinar. Anyone is welcome to attend, regardless of your geographic area!

All class material will be provided in electronic form, including your manual/workbook and copies of your natal/birth chart.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The live instruction will occur between 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Pacific Time Zone (click here for time zone converter). Unfortunately, due to Anne’s teaching and writing schedule, questions will need to be asked during the live webinars. Questions cannot be asked in between class meetings (e.g., by email), unless it is to ask for clarification about a recently covered topic. The question will be addressed during the next live class. However, the videos and workbook typically provide more than enough information to understand the course content.


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.”
