Synopsis of Each Part of the Course

The course is divided into six parts, and the main focus of each part is a 2 to 3 hour lecture which presents the main concepts for that section of the course.

Part 1: The History and Philosophy of Electional Astrology

The course begins with a discussion of the history and philosophy of electional astrology, in order to provide a context for the practice of the subject. Topics discussed include: the different branches of astrology, the historical development of western astrology, philosophical issues related to electional astrology such as fate versus free-will, and more.

Part 2: Prerequisite Concepts and Techniques

The second part of the course covers prerequisite concepts and techniques that you need to know in order to practice electional astrology. This involves an extended discussion of some specific concepts that relate to the fourfold system of planets, signs, houses and aspects. It also includes a discussion of specific planetary configurations that result in “affliction”, as well as the corollary concept known as “bonification”.

Part 3: The Core Rules of Electional Astrology

The third part of the course outlines the core concepts and rules of electional astrology, and provides the student with a set of guidelines to use when trying to select an auspicious electional chart.

Part 4: Applying Electional Astrology in Practice

The fourth part of the course focuses on demonstrating how to apply the rules of electional astrology in practice. This involves an analysis of a two month period and the selection of several auspicious elections from that period, using the rules that were outlined previously.

Part 5: Learning From Past Elections

The fifth part of the course contains a commentary on a series of examples of electional and inceptional charts from the past, in order to demonstrate the end result of the practical application of the principles outlined in the course.

Part 6: Recordings from the Auspicious Elections Podcast

Part six of the course contains some webinar recordings from the Auspicious Elections podcast by Chris Brennan and Leisa Schaim. In these recordings Chris and Leisa pick four auspicious elections each month and then talk about the pros and cons of the charts they found. This expands on the previous part of the course by showing how some of the rules of electional astrology are actually applied in practice.
