(Feb. 2018) – Navigating Celestial Waters with Electional Astrology
Much of the work that we do as astrologers — both professional and hobbyists alike — focuses on past and present events, employing a rigorous application of astrological symbolism to make better sense of the world around us. We can use that same knowledge of celestial cycles to help us be more proactive in all aspects of our lives.
Elections form the branch of astrology that focuses on selecting ideal times for the big decisions in our lives — when to open that bookstore, when to sign the lease on that new car, even when to cut your hair to increase or decrease growth — to avoid unnecessary troubles and to provide you or your client every advantage possible.
In this workshop we will explore the guiding principles of electional astrology, complete with example charts and practical exercises. What are the critical things to get right when electing? What are astrology’s limits when electing for the future, if indeed there are any? The techniques are simple and straightforward once understood and will better equip any practicing astrologer in their future elections. In a group discussion, we will also consider how elections fold into other branches of astrology. This presentation is suitable and warmly encouraged for astrologers at all levels.
