One of the underlying motifs throughout our classes is that every symptom is an attempt to cure. Astrological symbols are explored from a point of view that encourages us to find meaning in our illnesses and to participate in our own healing. We cultivate an astrological view of reading symptoms through exploring the astrology of health. Timing of illness is also discussed in terms of transits and progressions. We survey the astrological indications of stress and disease, reading symptoms, psychosomatic ills, ways to promote well-being and how to find meaning in our illness. Our classes honor the Chironic approach to healing, not from a fix-it perspective, but from a deeper understanding and acceptance of our illness.
