Dear Friend and Reader:
For today’s Tuesday mailing, I have a class announcement for you. Note, for those curious about the current Mercury retrograde, check this article on our daily blog, which includes a short, free audio summary.
On March 26 I will be teaching a version of my Introduction to Chiron class at Nightlight Astrology in New York City. This is a four-hour version of the class I’ve taught at Omega Institute and other venues. This note includes a rundown of the class, as well as some links to resources for everyone.
Chiron is often misunderstood as a point that is “read” in a chart like any other. That is possible, though Chiron is more useful when seen as part of a dynamic process that cycles throughout the lifetime.
I will teach the theory behind, and demonstrate, the technique that I’ve developed to understand your Chiron journey or those of your clients. When working with others, this will help you understand them well enough to actually have a useful exchange devoted to their healing. It’s a way of revealing the energy behind the apparent layer of the chart.
If you’re working with your own astrology, you’ll get a window into a whole level of your development process: how you experience life, learn from those experiences and gradually awaken to full awareness. This process allows you to see how a chart — yours or anyone else’s — works in reality, not just in theory.
In the spirit of the current Mercury retrograde, what I am teaching is primarily a listening process, which happens in a special session devoted to that purpose. Deep listening helps build trust, gives you a sense of your client’s inner world, and allows time for your intuition to understand the challenges another person is facing (which is challenging).
With that foundation, astrology can have a truly beneficial influence on the client — though the astrologer must be prepared for unexpectedly deep emotional, spiritual or psychological material to arise. I will go over how to handle that as well. In terms of technique, this is a fairly simple process — deceptively so, given the results that it can get.
The class is on a sliding scale of $30 to $60 and will take place from noon till 4 pm on Monday, March 26, 2012. To sign up, contact Adam Elenbaas at Nightlight Astrology by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
I describe the process in the article When Astrology Listens. If you would like a basic introduction to Chiron, try this article from Small World Stories. Just to remind you, I still have available a 12-sign audio on Chiron in Pisces (2010-2019).
Participants in the class will need to print this file, which is a 100-year Chiron ephemeris. This gives the position of Chiron monthly, which is often enough for most purposes.
I’ll see you Friday with a regular edition.
