The Outer Planets
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto
This is course six in our four-year training program. You do not have to be enrolled in the program to take this course.
In this course we will explore the meaning of the outer planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. We’ll explore the core themes and archetypal dynamics related to these powerful planets that Howard Sasportas calls the “gods of change.” We’ll apply what we learn to a core group of charts and through homework exercises begin to speak the language of the outer planets.
