There is an ongoing dance between learning new astrological techniques and actually applying them in our work with clients. How many techniques can we bring into a consultation? What are tried and true methods to improve our chart reading skills and hone our consultation skills?
Participants of this workshop will explore the dynamics of client sessions, the wide variety of goals astrologers have when doing client charts, and some basic pitfalls that we can learn to avoid. Rick will guide us through several different approaches to chart work and share his own goals and methods. Using concepts from “Quantum Astrology,” you will learn Rick’s method of prioritizing the importance of different factors in a reading. We will explore aspect synthesis, using chart patterns and harmonic resonance. We will learn how to focus on the most important issues presented by a chart, using natal analysis, transits, and secondary progressions by synthesizing the data. We will focus on the analysis of life-changing transitions as catalyzed by the outer planets, with an eye to the repetitive cycles of Jupiter and Saturn. Extra emphasis will be placed on Rick’s additions to Grant Lewi’s techniques of tracking transiting Saturn over the angles and through the four quadrants.
Rather than emphasizing the client session as a performance by the astrologer, we will gain practical knowledge and experience of changing the traditional dynamics of chart reading. Volunteers will be taken from class for real-time live demonstrations of these techniques. Class participants will gain a fresh perspective that can be incorporated into their client work, no matter what their current skill level and regardless of what specific techniques comprise the body of their work.
