Course Syllabus

Understanding People Through Astrological Chart Analysis (Intermediate Class)

Dear Seeker,

Ever felt baffled, irritated or even alienated by someone in your life? Ever given up in despair of understanding and being understood? Would you like to better understand and relate to your spouse, partner, child, friends, family, boss and coworkers? There’s an easy and powerful way to make all your relationships an adventure, not a struggle.

If astrology fascinates you and you’ve learned some things about the signs, planets and houses, then you’re in the perfect place.

In this class, you’ll learn how to go way past simply knowing someone’s “sign” and unlock the secrets of their soul using their actual astrology chart. You’ll come to understand who they really are and how to relate with them.

You’ll be able to look at anyone’s chart and discover:

  • what motivates and drives him
  • talents he may not know he has
  • how he loves–and who
  • the challenges he came here to face–and why it’s important that he do so
  • which parts of himself he tends to identify with and what are his “missing pieces” that he seeks in other people
  • how his personality meshes with yours
  • the deeper meaning and purpose behind his life

Chart Analysis Techniques: An Intermediate Astrology Class

This series of 12 classes gives you down-to-earth ways to interpret pieces of the chart so that you get it, your readee gets it, your readee is helped and your readee comes back for more.  Being able to understand charts and the people who occupy them improves all your relationships, whether you aim to practice astrology professionally or just as a hobby.

If you have already taken a basic astrology class, this class will quickly get you from zero to 60. You’ll gain tips, techniques and tools for breaking a chart down into its details and also fitting them together in a big picture. This is the essence of chart synthesis. After taking this class, you’ll look like a magician and all your relationships will go more smoothly.

Each class includes at least one lecture recording and PDFs, which you get to keep.
Because you absorb the lecture before class, you have time to review it as much as you like and class time is for answering your questions and for applying the techniques to your chart and your classmates’ charts, so you can see these techniques in action. Each class has time for questions and answers at the end. Be ready to take notes and to ask questions about your own chart.

What you get:

  • lecture recordings jam-packed with information on the techniques we’ll be working with
  • pdf handouts to accompany recording, for your notes
  • class time where Jamie demonstrates the technique and you get to practice
  • attention from Jamie and the group on the technique applied to your own chart
  • the opportunity to meet and get to know other students who are in the same place with astrology that you are

I began my studies of astrology with Jamie in 1999. I found her approach to be deeply insightful and beneficial. I felt empowered to embody my best qualities more fully and meet my life challenges courageously. Jamie’s comprehensive knowledge, ready wit and willingness to highlight the finest qualities in each chart and identify the appropriate cures for the challenges make her an exceptionally gifted and supportive teacher. If you desire to practice astrology with an eye toward supporting your clients in deeper self understanding and personal growth, look no further than Pandora Astrology.

The class series begins in May 2017:
Meetings happen almost every week (see schedule below). If for any reason I need to change the schedule, all active students will be notified and the change will be posted here.

Practical, hands-on learning:
All classes are filled with the kind of interpretive insights you can only get from a teacher who has been practicing for a long time and enjoys people. Each class is a 90-minute practicum in astrology: because you listen to an in-depth recording of the class material before you attend, ALL of the class time is spent on your questions and topical examples.

This is an online class, in webinar format (video, audio and screenshare). You will need a laptop computer of any kind, with a reasonably updated operating system and a fast internet connection (if you can stream video on your computer on youtube or netflix, your system is fast enough). You will also need two apps: Dropbox and Zoom, both of which are free for you. You’ll receive instructions for getting them in your registration email. And thirdly, a video camera in your computer is not a requirement, but it adds to the feeling of connection among class members if we can see your face.

THE FOUR ELEMENTS, THE THREE QUALITIES AND THE CHART’S SIGNATURE SIGN

Webinar class meets on Monday, June 12, 2017 at 7:30pm Pacific time.

RULERSHIPS, DISPOSITORS AND PLANET-CHASING

YOUR POWER SOURCE

Here’s where you come to understand the ‘engine at the center of the works of your life.’  This class explains dispositorship and in particular the final dispositor.  Find out how giving your planets the appropriate ‘food’ is the key to success and happiness.
Webinar class meets on Monday, July 10, 2017 at 7:30pm Pacific time.

ASPECTS, THE SCRIPTS YOUR INNER CHARACTERS PLAY OUT

If your chart is a stage play, with planetary characters wearing sign costumes and occupying house settings, then the aspects are the scripts of that play.  Here’s you’ll find out why having a lot of trines can make a person prone to arrogance, why people with a lot of squares can turn out so successful and why those with lots of oppositions are argumentative.  In this class you’ll learn to see each of your hard aspects as a gift wrapped in an unattractive package and to love the difficult quincunx.
Webinar class meets on Monday, July 17, 2017 at 7:30pm Pacific time.

ASPECT CONFIGURATIONS

Grand Trines, Grand Crosses and T-Squares, oh my!  After learning about the individual aspects in the previous class, we are now ready to see how they fit together into larger aspect configurations.  If your Grand Cross makes you. . . cross or if you’re mystified by your Mystic Rectangle, all will be explained.  In this class we’ll also tackle the anxiety-provoking Yod (mwa-ha-ha-haaaaa!).
Webinar class meets on Monday, July 24, 2017 at 7:30pm Pacific time.

SYNASTRY, CHART COMPARISON AND COMPOSITE CHARTS

Relationships are hard enough—but most people don’t even understand the astrology behind their attractions and behaviors.  They need your help!  This class teaches you why people relate the way they do and about that elusive thing called “chemistry.”
Webinar class meets on Monday, July 31, 2017 at 7:30pm Pacific time.

ASTROLOGY’S CHECKERED PAST

This class gives the novice astrologer a sense of the breadth and depth of astrological tradition,  including facts and stories from Western astrology’s history, as well as a brief overview of the other astrologies:  Chinese, Vedic and Meso-American (Mayan).  Why our tradition won’t die, even though astrologers and libraries got burned.  This class ends the series with a broad view, reminding us of the majesty and many important scientific contributions of our field.
Webinar class meets on Monday, August 7, 2017 at 7:30pm Pacific time.

HOW TO USE “THE FORCE” WISELY

Astrology is a very powerful tool that enables you to get right inside someone’s world very quickly.  You’ll learn why it’s important to respect your readee and how to use his chart to help him become the finest person possible.  In this class you’ll learn the most important gift you can give another human being and how to give it effectively (hint: it’s not money and everyone’s got it!).
Webinar class meets on Monday, August 14, 2017 at 7:30pm Pacific time.

I was walking up the steps to my house tonight and found myself, yet again, noticing how good I felt coming from Jamie’s astrology class. It seems every time I come away with renewed optimism and a sense of well-being toward humanity and a sense of belonging that wasn’t there before. I find her classes to be healing. Really, they’re kind of like group therapy. But I attribute that healing to the space she holds and to her ability to transmit acceptance through the wisdom she shares in every class.  It’s like taking an astrology class from a multi-faceted, cleverly disguised angel.

I’ll be accepting only 10 students into this class. If you want to join, you might want to register right away to secure your spot (first come, first served). As I’ve said before, these classes are small on purpose, because I want to guide you personally from where you are to where you want to go. In class you’ll have access to lots of personal attention and get all of your questions answered. I’m a professional astrologer in private practice for almost 25 years and you’ll be able to tap my stores of knowledge and experience and watch these techniques work in several charts for useful contrast. If you’ve always wanted to understand the workings of human personality through the divine mechanism of a birth chart, this is a “stellar” opportunity.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you a world of wonders, right inside your own self.
Warmly,
