Electional Astrology Workshop, date to be announced
Horary Astrology Workshop, date to be announced
Solar Fire Workshop, date to be announced
Solar Maps Workshop, date to be announced
12-week Predictive Astrology Course, date to be announced
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Electional Astrology Workshop will be offered from 1:30pm to 5:30pm on a weekend afternoon, on a date to be announced,  in the San Diego area. For a map and driving directions from your location, see the Directions page.

You will learn to choose ("elect") the most favorable dates and times to take important actions or begin important projects, such as:

- Getting married
- Opening a business
- Incorporating a business
- Making a major purchase (e.g., a car or an appliance)
- Signing a contract
- Looking at real estate (if you are a buyer)
- Applying for a job
- Being interviewed for a job
- Interviewing a professional to decide if you want to become their client -- e.g.,
  an acupuncturist, astrologer, attorney, chiropractor, dentist, medical doctor, 
  naturopath, nutritionist, or Realtor (R)
- Picking a date for surgery (with the understanding that the doctors are unlikely
  to let you control the exact time).

We will start with a review of the Dignities and Debilities of the planets, which are central to Western Classical Astrology.  You will learn to find Opportunity Periods based on the transiting Moon's aspects to other transiting planets.  Then, you will learn how to pick specific timed charts for the most crucial beginnings of all, such as marriage, the opening or incorporation of a business, or even surgery.

The fee for the Half-Day Electional Astrology Workshop is $55. Using the "Bring a Friend" Special Discount, the second person is only $45 (a $10 savings)! For registration and additional information, or to register, Mailto:jshawvan@yahoo.com

The Horary Astrology Workshop will be offered from 1:30pm to 5:30pm on a weekend afternoon, on a date to be announced, in the San Diego area. For a map and driving directions from your location, see the Directions page.

You will learn to analyze a chart for the moment that a question is asked -- known as a "horary chart" -- to find the answer to the question. The instructor will provide example yes-or-no horaries, and will point out the astrological reasoning in each case. We will emphasize the Classical approach, using the Dignities and Debilities of the planets as well as their aspects and movements.

Students are invited to bring yes-or-no horaries of their own to this introductory workshop.  Note that the time of each question must be accurately recorded.  If a question was asked by someone other than the student, who did not note down the time, then it is appropriate to use the time when the astrologer first understood the question, and the location of the person who asked it.

The fee for the Half-Day Horary Astrology Workshop is $55.  Using the "Bring a Friend" Special Discount, the second person is only $45 (a $10 savings)!  For registration and additional information, or to register, Mailto:jshawvan@yahoo.com

The very popular Solar Fire Workshop will be offered from 1:30pm to 5:30pm on a weekend afternoon, on a date to be announced, in the San Diego area. For a map and driving directions from your location, see the Directions page.

Solar Fire is a powerful astrology program that is used by many professional astrologers and students of astrology.  The program has so much to offer that even expert astrologers who have owned it for a while have often only scratched the surface.

If you would like to learn how to use all the features offered by the Solar Fire astrology program, or if you would like a preview of Solar Fire before deciding whether to purchase it, this workshop is for you.

In this four-hour afternoon workshop, professional astrologer and instructor Jim Shawvan will be your guide for a self-paced tour of Solar Fire, designed to help accomplish everything you need from the program, as well as introduce you to features that can help you do things you didn't even consider!

You will be given a detailed instructional handout that will enable you to walk through the program step by step, in hands-on fashion.  Jim will make sure to answer any of your questions as they arise. Students can work individually or in pairs, taking turns, with one reading the instructions aloud and the other using the computer.

We encourage participants to bring their own laptop computers (with Solar Fire already installed and tested), and also to register in pairs to share laptops and take advantage of our "Bring a Friend" special discount listed below. 

The fee for the Half-Day Solar Fire Workshop is $55.  Using the "Bring a Friend" special discount, the second person is only $45 (a $10 savings)!  Call 619-713-2487 for registration and additional information, or register at Mailto:jshawvan@yahoo.com

The Solar Maps Workshop will be offered from 2:00 to 4:30 pm on a weekend afternoon, on a date to be announced, in the San Diego area. For a map and driving directions from your location, see the Directions page.

Solar Maps is the most powerful program there is for relocation astrology. A "baby" version of Solar Maps is included with the more recent versions of Solar Fire, but to get the real power of the program, the full version should be purchased and installed to run directly from within Solar Fire.

The full version of Solar Maps offers astrolocality maps (world, continental, or regional)  done either in mundo (Jim Lewis's style) or in the ecliptic (Neil Michelsen's style), as well as geodetic maps. It can show you local space lines (projected onto the earth's surface from the horizon plane) and/or paran latitude lines ("crossings"). It can generate reports for any chart, including parans for the entire world or for a selected continent or region, including names of cities and towns at various latitudes.

In this workshop, Jim Shawvan will guide you through Solar Maps, providing a detailed handout for you to work through, and answering all your questions as they arise. Students can work individually or in pairs, taking turns, with one reading the instructions aloud and the other using the computer.

We encourage participants to bring their own laptop computers (with Solar Fire and Solar Maps already installed and tested), and also to register in pairs to share their laptops and take advantage of our "Bring a Friend" special discount listed below.

The fee for the Solar Maps Workshop is $45. Using the "Bring a Friend" special discount, the second person is only $35 (a $10 savings)!  For registration and additional information, or to register, Mailto:jshawvan@yahoo.com

The 12-week Predictive Astrology Course will meet on a date to be announced, in the San Diego area. For a map and driving directions from your location, see the Directions page.

The fee for the full Course is $360, and if paid in full by the first class it will be reduced to $325 (a savings of $35).  Students may also pay $30 weekly for each class. PLEASE NOTE:  There are no refunds on full Course payments.

Each student is required to supply for the Course their date of birth, time of birth, and place of birth.  Jim Shawvan will prepare a birth chart for each student prior to the start of the course.

The Curriculum is as follows:

Initial quiz to determine what the students already know.  Go over the answers.
Review of aspects in relation to houses and signs on the natural wheel.
Introduction to harmonics, another way of looking at aspects.

Homework:  Pick a planet that is arguably the most powerful one in your chart, and list all the Pluto transits to that natal planet since your birth, noting what was going on in your life during each period.  (A sample format is provided.)

Transits:  Why certain ones are important and others are negligible.
Multiple simultaneous transits -- examples provided.

How to use an astrological calendar to find "Opportunity Periods" when things can be expected to work well and go smoothly.   (Very basic electional astrology.)

Secondary (major) progressions, in which a day in transit after one's birth corresponds to a year in one's life.  Next to transits, this is the most widely used predictive technique in Western astrology, and deservedly so.

Three different ways to derive the progressed Midheaven and cusps.  Reasons for preferring the Mean Quotidian method (aka day-for-a-year method, aka birthtime method).

Your own progressed chart for your last (or next) birthday -- detailed analysis.

Quotidian (daily) secondary progressions:  The progressed cusps change every day, giving a good method of timing.

Tertiary progressions, in which a day in transit corresponds to a lunar month in one's life.

Minor progressions, in which a lunar month in transit corresponds to a year in one's life.  This is an incredibly valuable technique, not nearly as well known as it deserves to be!

Analysis in retrospect of one of the most important events of your life, using all the techniques we have studied so far.

Precession-corrected solar and lunar returns, and fractional returns:  History, theory, practice and examples, including relocation and travel.

Your own current and upcoming solar and fractional solar returns -- analysis.  Optional:  Study of returns for past events in your own life.

Relocation of natal charts -- how it differs in interpretation from the relocation of return charts.

Your own relocated natal charts for places where you have lived, or have thought about living.

Geodetic charts as an adjunct to relocated natal charts, and for mundane astrology.

Final review:  Hierarchy of predictive techniques used in the Western astrological tradition.  Which ones seem to work, and how well.

Questions are dealt with as they arise, throughout the entire series of classes.  I want every student to understand each topic before the next topic is introduced.
