Why start here when learning about Astrology?
Because these are the building blocks that connect Astrology to Earth Magic.
The Elements; Earth, Air, Fire & Water, give us more information on the energetics of each sign but more than that it shows us how they connect via Trine energy. It reveals how the signs that share the same elements help each other to do that element's WeRK. The Four Elements also connect to the Solstices & Equinoxes. There are Four Elements so each is contained in Three Different Signs.
The Modes, Cardinal, Fixed & Mutable, help us understand the movement & incentives of the signs. They also reveal how cooperative or combative the signs might be with each other because signs with the same Modes are Square to each other. Understanding the Modes can help you spot opportunities for change & growth faster. There are Three Modes so each are contained in Four Different Signs.
Rulerships speak to the planet that rules each of the 12 Zodiac Signs. Rulerships help us understand the associations of the planets & signs but, more than that, they help us prioritize the power of the planets as they interact in a whole chart. A planet in a sign it rules is stronger than in a sign it does not. Rulerships also help us determine our personal "profected" planet or TimeLord for each year. Rulerships also help us understand the polarities as each sign that a planet rules will inform you of it's detriment (or weaknesses) in the opposite sign.
I will only be teaching the traditional rulerships in this course; meaning the outer planets do NOT rule signs, only The Sun, The Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter do.
