Astronomy, Astrology, the ‘13th Sign’ & You
Reconciling Ancient Tradition In The Space Age
Why This Course Is Vital
Maybe we grumbled a bit when Pluto was reclassified, but as a rule Astrologers are quick and eager to adopt whatever new rock, planet or distant sun is discovered by Astronomy scientists. Not so, however, in the case of Ophiuchus the controversial ‘13th Sign.’ Sign or no-sign Ophiuchus became a zodiac constellation in 1930.
Astrology and Astronomy are like the man and animal parts of Chiron the Centaur. In ancient times they were one science, functioning symbiotically. But during the Roman Inquisition of the early 1600s they separated after the Church declared heliocentricity was opposed to scripture and heretical. Today, Astronomers classify and name features of the physical cosmos that are invisible to the unaided eye. Their work makes it possible for Astrologers to psychically connect on the spiritual planes and translate data and information for us, to foster our evolution. Startistics honors that sacred partnership and offers this course to light the new pathway and awaken Ancient Astrology Masters who have returned to perform special functions at this time.
This Course will assist aspiring and seasoned Astrologers alike in laying a quantum foundation for the practice of next generation Astrology. The classes are not only educational but experiential and initiatory. Tracks may be taken in any order or individually. These classes will put into your hands all the fundamental tools you need, point you in the right direction, and factually empower you. The agenda is ambitious but the completed course will equip you with the power of KNOWING.

TRACK 1 – All About Ophiuchus
The Serpent Holder & The Serpent In this class we will identify the underpinnings of Constellation Ophiuchus and the Serpent. We will explore the history, myth, and metahistory of this star grouping to build a solid, factual foundation on which practitioners can (and we will in a later class) interpret planetary and small body transits. Our intellectual journey will be centered on ancient Egypt and Greece, their cultural neighbors and pantheons. We will also spend time in the ancient Near East, Mesopotamia, Northeastern Europe, and the mound and pyramid cultures of North and South America.
Ophiuchus & The Divine Feminine In this class we will discover exactly what happened to her chapter in the history books of Constellation Ophiuchus. We will begin our exploration in the Greek Dark Age and end at the establishment of the Holy Roman Empire. A case will be made for Her energetic dominion in the phenomenon that is the so-called ‘13th’ constellation-sign.
Metaphysical Ophiuchus – Planetary Intelligences, Symbols, Totems & Props Based on what we have learned so far, we will go on to examine the suggested props, planetary and smaller body intelligences, symbols, sacred animals, plants, minerals and more. We will leave no stone unturned. By the time we are finished we will have assembled a complete Ophiuchus Knowledge Base, and you will have created your own reference book to hold it. Finally, we will take our first steps in interpreting sky charts and traditional astrology figures so that you can get a feel for how the two modalities compare.
Ophidian Esoterics & Inner Mysteries Optional class. Participation not required to complete the Course. Content TBA. Depth of information will depend on interest level displayed in earlier classes.
TRACK 2 – Astrology as Noumenon
How does Astrology work as a practical matter? In this class we’re going to review some basic laws, principles and philosophies underlying the forms and systems we use on this planet and then we will go on to discuss energy fields, forms and systems. This is a key class.
TRACK 3 – Astronomology: Working with the Celestial Sphere
Fasten your seat belts. This class will not be for the faint of heart. We are going to be exploring the physical Universe, from grids and ley lines to celestial objects. We will also be discussing solar plasma, the Earth’s auric envelope, magnetism, electricity, space weather, solar and celestial energy events and more. We will go on to consider the sky charts of specific events. This class will be very hands-on so bring your laptop if you have one and your birth data. Software will be provided at no extra charge. Those without a laptop will be able to view the action on a flat panel display connected to my laptop.
