Our courses are presented online through a private course site that each student gains access to upon registering. The courses focus primarily on astrological techniques and technical doctrines from the Hellenistic tradition, although we also try to provide some historical and philosophical context for the practice of the techniques as well. All courses are taught by Chris Brennan.
The purpose of this course is to provide a detailed overview of the ancient Hellenistic tradition astrology, which is a tradition of horoscopic astrology that was practiced from the 1st century BCE until approximately the early 7th century CE. The course covers the history and origins of the early tradition of horoscopic astrology, as well as the philosophical, theoretical and technical underpinnings of the system. Students will finish the course with a strong foundation in the history, techniques and practice of Hellenistic astrology, and with plenty of new techniques and practical material to apply in their own astrological practice.
