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.


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 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. We will additionally focus on understanding how your Mars impacts your relationships, whether filial, romantic, or antagonistic, and how to work with what you have.
*Planetary Charity, musical and literary works as prescription for understanding and appeasing Mars, and mundane remediations around wardrobe.
*Psychotherapeutic techniques and modalities useful for self-control and reduction of impulsive or reckless reactions, modulating emotional hyperactivity, and understanding the role of the libido.
*Service Mars vs Conquering Mars, and what the means in relationships.
*Theurgical devotion via the Hygromanteia, Picatrix, Three Books of Occult Philosophy, and Orphic Hymns, and more, for prayer.
*Solomonic Pentacles for martial and protective workings, and more baneful pursuits.
