The Luminaries – Sun & Moon
This is course five 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 look at two of the most important astrological symbols in the natal chart: the Sun and Moon. Also called the “luminaries,” these key planets relate to the organizing principle of our psyche and our childhood conditioning. Understanding these key symbols is crucial to understanding life themes in the birth chart.
