March 29: Introduction to Classical Electional Astrology Workshop (class)


Introduction to Classical Electional Astrology

The goal of electional astrology is to determine the most favorable time for any significant activity – whether it is an important purchase, a wedding, surgery, or a job interview. In this one day workshop, Elena Lumen will introduce students to the foundations of this magical practice. Electional astrology is based on the principles of traditional western astrology, but this workshop is open to all students, who are familiar with astrology basics (planets, signs, and aspects), but want to learn principles of electing a successful time.

The following topics will be discussed:
Basic principles of election
Election by the Moon (simplified daily elections)
Planets and signs and their nature in successful elections
Financial, medical, professional, or marriage charts.
