Astrology: The Nitty Gritty is a new astrology course for the intermediate-level student who wants to know both the how and why of astrology. Once a skeptic and a severe critic of astrology, Sam has spent over 22 years amassing techniques and insights about the philosophy and practice of astrology. Some of his most notable teachers in the field have been Christopher Warnock, Alan Oken, Marcia Starck, and Robert Zoller. He grounds the ideas of astrology in the ancient tradition of Hermetic philosophy with the situations, people and demands of a multicultural modern world. In 8 classes, we will cover:
- The spiritual yet rational philosophy of astrology and how it works
- How to use 5 essential levels to perceive how planetary energies will manifest in a person’s life
- How to use houses and house systems to figure out the likelihood of whether and how particular topics will surface in someone’s life.
- How to bring all the elements of a chart together to interpret it.
- How to use at least 6 different techniques for predicting how a person’s chart might unfold.
- A primer on four forms of astrology: synastric, horary, electional, and relocational.
- Imagine if you or a friend, for instance, wanted to decide if she is best suited for a person (synastry astrology), if she will marry a particular person (horary), the best date for the wedding (electional) and whether she’d thrive in a new location (relocation) after the marriage. You can do it all with astrology!
- Classroom text, Astrology: Understanding the Birth Chart by Kevin Burk, is included in the cost of course. A $16.00 value.
Class limited to only 8 people!
Practice Builders Series from the Astrology Career Institute presents:
“Horary Made Right”
a tele-class developed by Vlad Shilinis
“Is he coming back? Can our relationship be saved?”
The desperation of her questions filtered through the phone like static, though I could hear her as clearly as if she were in the next room. She had given me her newly departed partner’s astrological info and, as a long-term client, I had hers already. But what she didn’t know was that there was no way to answer her questions from just their natal charts, even if I used their solar returns, their progressed charts, their solar arc directed charts or relocated charts. The best I could tell her is how they would get along or if they would get along. Neither of which she was asking. There was only one way to answer her question.
“I can do a horary chart for you to answer your questions,” I said. “A what?!,” she asked. I explained that horary astrology was one of the oldest forms of astrology and it’s creating a chart for the time that a question is understood by an astrologer as a birth time for the question. Once a chart is created, an astrologer can read the chart to find an answer with detailed answers, from physical descriptions of the people involved, to likely outcomes and the likely timing for when things will happen. It’s an amazing form of divination. I’ve used to answer questions, like my client above, to finding missing objects, to figuring out when is someone likely to find a job.
But horary doesn’t work like natal astrology. In some ways, it’s simpler as it’s more focused and in other ways it’s fantastically complex. So it pays to have a good teacher if you’re going to offer the best and most accurate answers to your clients or for yourself. That’s why I want to introduce you to one of my teachers: Vlad Shilinis.
Vlad was born in Russia and immigrated to the United States 30 years ago. Having begun his studies in art and esotericism in Russia, he continued his astrological studies under Zoltan Mason – the chief proponent of the classical European school of Morinus in the US. He lives in New Jersey and has practiced horary astrology for the last 25 years.
You’re only getting the shortened version of his bio, but I know he’s studied far more than what you see here. He’s read tens of horary books and I’ve seen with my own two eyes the hundreds of charts that he’s collected over the years, many of them with correct answers. He would be reluctant to call himself a master, but I would. I’ve been asking Vlad for years to be more “public” with his horary astrology, but he’s been reluctant. Well, I guess 2012 is his year…and ours!
So it’s with great excitement that I announce that Vlad will be teaching 8 one-hour long introductory horary classes, enough to get you started in practicing this profound and fascinating art form. “Horary Made Right” is a practical course of Horary Astrology divided into two parts - basic (8 lectures) and advanced (4 lectures) parts.
The course is based on actual practical experience and the synthesis of rules written by all major horary authors, both modern and ancient. By the end of the course, you will know how to make your own charts and arrive at the right conclusions according to the art of horary. Students will also receive a horary checklist sheet, necessary tables for easy reference and a list of recommended books for future studies. Every lecture will also be richly illustrated by relevant charts and schemas, and every class will be an hour-long, recorded teleseminar. So you can either participate directly in the class or catch up later with an mp3 link for the class directly sent to your inbox.
We haven’t committed to the dates for the 4-class advanced section, but the introductory lessons will start on Tuesday, January 24, 2012 at 7p (EST) until 8pm (EST). All classes will be tele-classes, recorded and materials needed for classes will be sent directly via email for registrants. You will have access to Vlad for questions related to the class via email as well. You’ll be given codes for each phone call. We’re offering the course for $99.
For $99, you’ll receive:
- Full, exclusive participation in our 1-hour telephone lectures with master astrologer Vlad Shilinis
- Email access to Vlad for questions regarding lectures and materials
- Recorded mp3 copies of each of the eight 1-hour lectures
- All charts and illustrations used for class purposes
- A horary checklist sheet
- Tables for easy reference
- A well-researched list of recommended books for future studies
Horary astrology is perhaps among the most powerful forms of astrology, and IT IS THE THING that most of your clients will be asking about, in some form or fashion, once you’ve delineated their natal charts. For less than $12.50 per class, you could learn enough horary astrology to start interpreting horary charts immediately. With more practice, you’d have an invaluable skill to expand and develop your practice.
Classes start Tuesday, January 24, 2012 at 7p (EST) and will continue until March 13, 2012 at 7p. We expect that the next time we offer this class in mp3 format that it will sell for $129. Save $30 now and receive the benefit of LIVE interaction with a master astrologer now.
Practice Builders Series:
The Art of Predictive Astrology Classes with Robert P. Blaschke & Michele Adler
A gifted student of mine loves doing natal charts and compatibility analyses. He’s very good at those. But he’ll never be able to build a real practice at it. I don’t say that to be mean or denigrate my student’s abilities. I say this for a simple reason. He doesn’t have enough technique to do predictive astrology. Let me tell you what happened to him a few years ago.
I host an event called the Zodiac Lounge where I bring various psychics and astrologers together to offer short 10-20 minute readings for people at a reasonable cost. He was one of my readers. A friend of mine sat in his chair. She knows herself fairly well as she’s a student of metaphysics, so she wasn’t interested in a natal reading or a compatibility analysis. She said she wanted more information about what was coming up, especially in her business life. I could see the beads of sweat gather on his brow. I felt bad for him as I had attempted to get him to sit down with me many times and learn how to do progressions with transits; but he always had something else to do. Without a natal or compatibility analysis to do, he was in far deeper waters than he was used to.
He had to tell her, honestly, that he couldn’t help her. She thanked him and took her $20, for a mini-reading, to another reader. He lost out on $20 and will lose out on much more, because he can’t look beyond a natal chart! This doesn’t have to be you! You can learn key fundamentals of predictive astrology easily, simply and without paying a lot of money.
In Spring 2008, I designed a special course to give students more tools to build a better and stronger practice. I was so impressed with Michele Adler’s book, Predictive Astrology, and Robert P. Blaschke’s work as an astrologer and his two predictive astrology books, Progressions, and Holographic Transits, that I asked them if they’d like to guest teach tele-seminars for my school. They agreed. I recorded the tele-seminars and made them into 7 phenomenal classes, available in mp3 format for you to listen to on your phone, your computer or your favorite mp3 player.
Robert P. Blaschke’s Progressions & Holographic Transits Class
Unfortunately, on January 18, 2011, Robert P. Blaschke passed away. I found Robert to be a great astrologer and a master teacher of astrologers. He was generous with his time and knowledge, whether over the phone, in person, through his books or on social networking sites, like myspace.com, where I first got to know him better. I’m going to miss him. Although he’s gone, we still have the classes that he and Michele created and I’d like to offer them to you.Here’s a brief layout of what the each set of classes covers. With Robert P. Blaschke’s Progressions & Holographic Transits Class, you get
- Three recorded sessions in an mp3 format, nearly 70 minutes each.
- Two books: Volume 1: Progressions and Volume 5: Holographic Transits both by Robert P. Blaschke
- Three separate class handouts
First Session: The philosophy of astrological forecasting–understanding the free will vs. fate debate, understanding the present, making peace with the past, which techniques work and why, and overviews of key principles that guide predicting the future…accurately!
Second Session: Progressions. Robert Blaschke has written, perhaps, the most in-depth and thorough explanations about progressions in the marketplace. He explains how to use three types of progressions and how they give clear thumbnail sketches for what is likely to happen in a person’s life and when.
Third Session: Holographic Transits. This is where Mr. Blaschke introduces a unique technique he’s developed to pursue active times to coordinate one’s free will to Divine intention in one’s emotional life, love life, career aspirations, etc. It’s a way to think about “transits” that is more holistic rather than just linear, as in transiting Jupiter conjoining natal planet in your chart. Let me remind you what you’re getting:
- Three tele-classes at nearly 70 minutes each, with comments/questions from original participants
- Two of Robert Blaschke’s seminal books, Progressions and Holographic Transits (retail value of $37 alone), including shipping costs
- Robert’s handouts for the sessions
For a class like this, you would normally pay nearly $50 for the books ALONE! However…
I’m offering Robert’s Progressions & Holographics Transits Class for $79.99.

Michele Adler’s Predictive Astrology Class
I brought on Michele Adler for another section of the course to deal with return charts and draw on her huge treasure chest of techniques, culled from 33 years of study and work as an astrologer. I found her book, Predictive Astrology to be chocked with 9 chapters of practical and proven techniques for predictive work:
- 1 copy of Michele Adler’s book, Predictive Astrology, with a retail value of $21.95
- 4 downloadable recordings of the sessions (in case you miss them!)
- Study guides and class materials for each class.
Session 1 – Return Charts
Session 2 – Return Charts, Part II
These two classes are dedicated to giving students a firm understanding to one of the most powerful and useful tools in predictive astrology: the return charts. For example, around your birthday, you have a solar return and lunar returns happen every month when the moon is in the same degree and sign as your moon sign. These return charts provide powerful measures for understanding likely future events and undertakings. Michele will show you how to cast and interpret these charts.
Session 3 – Eclipses and Lunations
Eclipses and lunar cycles are among the oldest forms of astrology. In these classes, Michele demonstrates how to use these tried and true techniques to gain detailed insight into possible outcomes for happenings in our lives and those of your clients.
Session 4 – Progressed Lunation and Diurnal Charts
Here we discuss something old and something relatively new in astrological forecasting. Progressed lunation is one of the most fundamental and consistently accurate ways to get a thumbnail sketch for what is happening in your life or those of your clients. I can’t think of another technique that I use more than progressed charts.We’ll also discuss the diurnal chart, another type of chart that helps you get a clearer picture of what are some key issues for a particular day, not just for a general period of time like a years, months or weeks.
