Pre-Conference Workshop

Harmonic Aspects in Natal Chart Consultations Theory and Practice

Breaking out of the 12-fold zodiac has widened astrologers’ perspective as they continue to uncover new ways to find meaning in natal horoscopes. A variety of tools fall under the umbrella of “Harmonics” that have grown out of Johannes Kepler’s introduction of quintiles and octiles into astrology over 400 years ago. For many astrologers, it’s difficult to take the leap into harmonic chart analysis and vibrational resonance. However, available astrology software gives us tools to quickly see the non-zodiacal 5th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10, and 11th harmonic aspects without ever leaving the familiar natal chart view.

This workshop will explore the importance of using the harmonic aspect series of quintiles, septiles, octiles, noviles, deciles, and eleventiles. Participants will learn how to interpret these non-traditional aspects and the variety of their complex configurations. There will be plenty of chart examples. Additionally, example charts of class participants will also be used to round out the curriculum.

Lecture Description

A New Look at Oppositions

Most astrologers have a consistent understanding when it comes to interpreting one planet that is opposed to another planet. The T-square is a widely used special case opposition with a third planet that is square to each of the opposed planets. But how is the opposition affected when the third planet is trine one side of the opposition and sextile the other? Or when the third planet is semisquare one side and sesquisquare the other? Or quintile one side of the opposition and decile the other? The nature of an opposition is dramatically altered when an additional planet is brought into resonance by aspect with the opposition. This class is a deep dive into the common configurations that build upon the foundation of an opposition. Attendees will learn how to integrate complex oppositional-based aspect patterns into a wider flow of energy in natal chart interpretation, transits, and synastry.
