Minor note: some videos may state that they are a lesson number in an introductory course but I am using the videos in a different order so this number does not apply to this course.
Homework: Email me a paragraph or two (not more) OR make a 10-minute video (7 minutes to 15 minutes only) on something you notice in your birth chart using an idea (or ideas) from one or more of these videos. You can present a way of thinking about what the astrology chart tells you or does not tell you, a perspective on it in a broader philosophical sense and/or specific interpretations. If you make a video: you can get a free zoom account if you don’t have one, open a zoom meeting and record just you in the meeting. If you don’t have a youtube channel, you can make one for free and upload to your youtube channel and leave the setting to Unlisted. Email me a link to the video.
