Sacred Astronomy for Astrologers with Gemini Brett
LEARN TO SEE THE CHART IN THE SKY, AND THE SKY IN THE CHART… IN JUST 6 WEEKS!
Have you always felt enchanted by the night sky?
Are you curious about how the movements in the sky correlate with what you see in the astrological chart… and how this impacts your interpretations?
If so, you're invited on a journey into sacred space with our latest course, Sacred Astronomy for Astrologers, Level 1!
Many of the great astrologers of our time don't know this astronomical side to our craft because astrology and astronomy have in a sense, long been divorced.
But when we “re-nature” our craft by remembering how to see the sky in the chart and the chart in the sky, we will remember the roots of the rules and the proofs of the astrological equations we use, resulting in an embodied practice of astrology.

Chapter 1 – The Circle of Spirit – What in the Heavens is the Zodiac?
After covering which parts of an astrology chart are astronomical and which are not, we'll journey out to space to embrace the ecliptic, the plane of the Earth-Sun relationship. You'll learn how the constellations of the zodiac are defined and Gemini will reveal many tricks that will help you learn how to see them in the sky. You'll discover why constellations are different than Signs and will be introduced to the three popular Zodiac cosmologies of our time: Constellational, Sidereal, and Tropical.

Chapter 2 – The Cross of Matter – the Astrological Angles, Quadrants, and Houses
In this module, we will put our feet on the ground and engage the energies of the cardinal directions to understand the heavenly motion that is often least understood by astrologers even though it is certainly the easiest one to witness in our sky. The mysteries of the angles, quadrants, and heavenly houses you will learn to embody and integrate through the transmissions of these lessons will upgrade your astrology instantaneously.

Chapter 3 – The Signs of Time – The very real Astronomy of the Tropical Zodiac
Now that we understand the motions of the year and the day, we'll find the design of the Tropical Zodiac is simply and elegantly based on the way they interface. The glyphs we use to represent the Signs will be your guides as you learn why the Tropical Zodiac is so much more than a seasonal device. Let us take back the very real astronomy of the Tropical Zodiac!

In these lessons, you will learn to see how the teachings of Modules one, two, and three are clearly reflected in the mirror of the Moon as she waxes and wanes and travels through the constellations and Signs by month and the houses by day. The Moon's ever changing smile will teach you to see opening and closing phases as well as applying and separating aspects in the sky. You'll also meet Black Moon Lilith and the Lunar Nodes who will teach you about the types and timings of Eclipses.

In this module, you'll see how almost everything you've learned about the cycles of the Moon applies to Planet and Star cycles too. You’ll further your understanding of how every Planet is absolutely unique, but you’ll also see why and how they are grouped into teams. Regardless of whether they travel on the inner or outer tracks, you’ll learn why Earth and Sun set the pace of the race and determine whether the celestial chariots travel direct or retrograde.
