"If you are interested in Medical Astrology, this is the best place to start" 
"Excellent course with tons of good information to help figure out what may be happening with your client."

Get out charts! Get out your herbs and herbal medicines!

This course covers the health strengths and weaknesses of each astrological sign. Make the best of your own astrology, deepen your chart reading abilities, and expand your herbal wisdom.

  • Which sign is more prone to heart conditions?
  • Which sign is associated with bones and teeth?
  • Why do Aquarians (sun, moon, rising) need or crave mineral salts more than others?
  • While this is a 'Sun Signs' course, the principles also apply to the moon and rising signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Saggitarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces
The material covered in this course is in-depth. It supplements and adds new information to the insights found in their world-famous books.

Not only is the information useful in individual cases, it also leads us to new ways of thinking about herbalism and astrology.

Judith Hill (prolific author, astrologer, and herbalist) and Matthew Wood, MS, discuss each sign of the zodiac in-depth. Each two-hour and 15-minute class (a couple of classes will be longer) includes:
  • the traditional medical rulerships and associations of the sign with regions, organs, systems, and functions
  • psychological themes important from a medical angle
  • planetary rulers of the sign and their medical associations
  • the health effect of planets in the sign (This is an exhaustive topic of its own so only some planets may be addressed.)
  • herbs associated with the sign or ruling planet
  • observed medical idiosyncrasies of the twelve signs (Davidson, Cornell, Hill, others)
  • new insights generated by this unique approach. 

The series ends with the analysis of example charts from history. In class #13, we look at the astrological medical charts of famous people. These examples illustrate the principles of medical astrological analysis from the natal or birth chart.
