 Basics of Medical Astrology

This course covers the basics of medical astrology, which is an ancient medical system that associates various parts of the body, diseases, foods, and herbal medicines as being under the influence of the Planets and the twelve Astrological signs.  There will be an overview on navigating through the natal chart so previous knowledge of astrology is not necessary.  

In this course, we will explore the basics of medical astrology as it relates to your natal chart.  We will identify excess and/or deficiency of the elements and how to use holistic approaches to bring them into balance.  Then focus will be on the sun, ascending and moon signs as we go over how they relate to the physical body, including emotional and constitutional wellbeing.  Nutrition, herbs, and lifestyle support will be discussed for each sign.  We will also cover the planets and houses and how they affect the natal chart in medical astrology.  

To bring all the information together, we will go through a chart analysis framework using chart examples. 

Coming soon!!!
