The Inner Sky – Introduction to Evolutionary Astrology

This course can be taken self-paced or guided when taken in conjunction with the lab (FCEA-101B). It provides an introduction to the basics of evolutionary astrology. You will learn the core language and key concepts as described in the required course textbook, The Inner Sky. It will contain a mixture of  brief videos and narrative teaching components, as well as tests to gauge your familiarity with and/or grasp of the material covered. You will learn the concepts of planets, signs, houses and aspects. The course will expose you to the symbols used to represent these concepts and how to interpret them in the context of a person’s birthchart. As your proficiency increases, you’ll assemble these into sentences, paragraphs and ultimately a story about the individual whose chart you are interpreting.

The Sky Speaks…Learn How to Listen

The focus in FCEA 101 is developing a fundamental understanding of a person’s psychological nature as reflected in the birthchart. Next in FCEA 102, you will learn how to add the metaphysical, reincarnational perspectives which make evolutionary astrology different from other forms of astrology. That will be achieved by adding two more symbols to your vocabulary, the north and south nodes of the Moon.The final course in the 100 series is FCEA 103, a practicum where you will be doing actual chart interpretations.
The course materials are organized into cohesive modules. Each module may contain reading assignments, videos, PDF handouts and self-directed exercises. The course will complete with the assignment of a final exam. Completion of the self-directed exercises and passing the final exam is required for anyone seeking certification.
