Synastry and Composites Intermediate Astrology Class

Using astrology to understand people and how they relate (intermediate course)
Synastry and Composites Intermediate Astrology Class

Relating with other people is possibly the most important life skill you can have. But to relate to them you have to understand them, and what better way than through their astrology chart? In this class we unlock all kinds of relationships: romantic, sexual, friendly, professional and familial. You’ll learn where in a chart to look for answers to questions like these:

  • What is my romantic type?
  • What is my type to marry?
  • How did the patterns in my relationship history get formed–and how can I change them for the better?
  • Is this person capable of loving and appreciating me for a lifetime?
  • Should I marry this person?
  • What is the nature of the chemistry I have with my partner? Will it last?
  • What does our relationship need so it can thrive?
  • Will my partner and I be able to conceive?
  • Does my chart have fertility challenges in it, and how do I solve them?
  • What does it mean that my child was born when they were?
  • What’s the best way to raise my child?
  • Why did my parents raise me the way they did?
  • Does my chart suggest heritage karma and why did I join my family of origin?
  • What is the important role each family member plays in our system?

Synastry: An Intermediate Astrology Class

This series of 6 classes gives you an understanding of how humans relate, connect, disconnect or frustrate each other–and why. You also learn how to use the chart of someone you know to relate to them optimally–raise your child in the ways they need to be raised, appreciate your parents (even if their parenting of you was fraught) and find a beloved partner or relate better to the partner you chose. This class is for you if you have already taken a beginner’s astrology class and you’re familiar with the 10 planetary archetypes, the 12 signs and the 12 houses. In this class you will learn fundamental and advanced approaches to synastry between partners, friends, coworkers and family members.

Each class includes materials for you to study before class. Some will be recordings and some will be PDFs. These are for you to keep and refer to after the class is over. You study these materials before class, reviewing them as much as you like. Class time is for answering your questions and for applying the techniques to your chart and your classmates’ charts, so you can see these techniques in action. Each class has time for questions and answers. Be ready to take notes and to ask questions about your own chart. When you register you will provide data for a partner you have or have had, a family member and a friend or co-worker. These will be used as examples during the class and you will be able to ask questions about them.

What you get:

  • Lecture recordings jam-packed with information on the techniques we’ll be working with
  • PDF handouts to accompany the recordings
  • Class time where Jamie demonstrates the material and you see it in action
  • Attention from Jamie and the group on the information applied to your own chart
  • The opportunity to share insights about your relationships and to learn from other people sharing too
  • The opportunity to meet and get to know other students who are a similar place with astrology that you are

The class series begins on Monday, October 3, 2022:
This series is scheduled to happen every other Monday at 5 PM Pacific Time / 6 PM Mountain Time / 7 PM Central Time / 8 PM Eastern Time. Meetings happen almost every week (see schedule below). If for any reason I need to change the schedule, all active students will be notified and the change will be posted here.

Practical, hands-on learning:
All classes are filled with the kind of interpretive insights you can only get from a teacher who has been practicing for a long time and enjoys people. Each class is a practicum in astrology: because you listen to an in-depth recording of the class material before you attend, ALL of the class time is spent on your questions and topical examples.

This is an online class, in webinar format (video, audio and screenshare). You will need a laptop computer of any kind, with a reasonably updated operating system and a fast internet connection (if you can stream video on your computer on youtube or netflix, your system is fast enough). You will also need two apps: Dropbox and Zoom, both of which are free for you. You’ll receive instructions for getting them in your registration email. And thirdly, a video camera in your computer is not a requirement, but it adds to the feeling of connection among class members if we can see your face.

Cost: $320 for the 6 session series.
Full-pay option: $299, payable by credit card or paypal when you register.
Payment plan option: $320, payable in 2 easy monthly payments of $160 each, by credit card.

I’ll be accepting only 6 to 8 students into this class. If you want to join, please register right away to secure your spot (first come, first served). This class is small on purpose, so I can give you lots of personal attention and answer all of your questions. I’m a professional astrologer in private practice since 1992 and you’ll be able to tap my stores of knowledge and experience and watch these techniques work in several charts for clarifying contrast. If you’ve always wanted to understand why people connect and how they relate, this class will give you a cosmic view.

I look forward to meeting you.

“I began my studies of astrology with Jamie in 1999. I found her approach to be deeply insightful and beneficial. I felt empowered to embody my best qualities more fully and meet my life challenges courageously. Jamie’s comprehensive knowledge, ready wit and willingness to highlight the finest qualities in each chart and identify the appropriate cures for the challenges make her an exceptionally gifted and supportive teacher. Since those first few classes I have had many readings with Jamie about my relationships, where she has coached and guided me to make good partner choices and navigate my relationships in the most loving way I can. The understanding of my patterns in relationship has been invaluable. In my most recent relationship, understanding these patterns helped me to get clear on how and when to form a partnership, how to maintain it effectively, and the best time to dissolve it. If you desire to practice astrology with an eye toward supporting your clients in deeper self understanding and personal growth, look no further than Pandora Astrology.”
