About the Event

This bundle of five, hour-and-a-half classes, helps students develop a  foundational knowledge of the planet Mars, aka the Lesser Malefic, and:  his magical and mytho-poetic role in astrology, his role in your natal  chart, his influence as a transiting planet, and both ceremonial and  mundane ways of strengthening or softening his influence. The first  class focuses on understanding Mars’ role within the cosmology of the  gods and their influence on earth. We additionally explore his  reputation in the Ancient, Medieval, Vedic, and Psychological Astrology  traditions, and my personal philosophical ascriptions (focusing on  Nietzsche). The second class looks at Mars’ significations by house,  exploring what it means when he occupies angular, succedent, and cadent  houses. Our third class focuses on Mars’ significations by sign: we will  make note of where he is in domicile, detriment, and exalted, and how  the twelve zodiacal signs influence him, and vice versa.  The fourth  class investigates Mars’ significations by aspect, in particular: how  conjunctions, squares, oppositions, trines, and sextiles with other  planets, and some notable fixed stars, can manifest within the nativity  and by transit.  The fourth class also discusses Mars’ Return, Mars as  Time-Lord, Mars activation by Annual Profection, and Mars in his service  role, vs conquering position.  The fifth, and final class, pursues  magical and mundane paths for remediation and propitiation of Mars,  giving students the opportunity to develop a more functional  relationship with the Lesser Malefic, and providing various ceremonial  and practical techniques for improving rapport, and earning favor. While  the classes may be taken individually, each builds upon the last to  teach you how to begin synthesizing the information (i.e. house + sign +  aspects = this remediation).  Students are encouraged to submit their  own natal chart (in whole sign house system) to be used (anonymously!)  as an example in the class, but we will also examine the charts of  celebrities and public figures to help see Mars in action.

This class investigates Mars’ significations by aspect, in particular: how conjunctions, squares, oppositions, trines, and sextiles with other planets, fixed stars, and the nodes, can manifest within the nativity and by transit.  The fourth class also discusses Mars Return, Mars as Time-Lord, Mars activation by Annual Profection, and Mars’ role as sect and out of sect Malefic.
