This course focuses on how to identify, understand, and address potential challenges in the birth chart. Proper use of the horoscope in diagnosis is explored, and colleagues are introduced to DSM diagnostic criteria. Astrological archetypes are examined in the context of their correlations to various mental disorders when carried to dysfunctional, unbalanced extremes. In this course, our focus is on the potential dysfunction of the first six signs, Aries through Virgo, and their corollary planetary rulers. Concepts of healing are also explored, especially as these relate to integration and individuation.
