Solar Arcs

Your Internal Development Clock
taught by Steven Forrest

Course Description


In this workshop, Steven Forrest introduces the theory and practice of solar arcs to complete his three-part series on timing that started with Transits and Progressions.

Solar Arcs operate like the genetic code of a seed. Similar to Progressions, they are an internal developmental clock hard-wired into your birthchart. Certain possibilities arise right on schedule as you come to the evolutionary crossroads they mark, just as an oak tree might sprout green leaves every Spring and watch them turn to red and gold each Autumn. Solar arcs are reliable, and no astrologer doing “current development” work is playing with a full deck without them.

The theory behind Solar Arcs is simple: take the number of degrees the Sun has progressed on a given date and add that same “arc” to the rest of the planets. With the Sun progressing about one degree per year, the distance any planet has moved by this technique is a number of degrees pretty close to your age in years. You can even do Solar Arcs in your head at night if have trouble sleeping.

Because they are linked to Sun, they have a “solar” nature. That means that Solar Arcs are quite directly related to the obvious biographical realities of life. In other words, they “work” in a  concrete way, even though they lack some of the psychological depth of Progressions. In practice, along with Transits and Progressions, Solar Arcs complete the powerful trinity of techniques that are at the heart of astrological prediction.

In this online class, Steven will briefly introduce the theory of Solar Arcs, then work with each planet individually, along with the Angles of the chart. We will pay special attention to the all-important Solar Arcs of the nodal axis as they mark the times when “the karmic wave will break” in your life. By the time we are finished, you will have working knowledge of this technique which you can apply to your own chart or those of your friends and clients.
