Classical Studies in Medical Astrology

Medical Astrology is one of those topics that most astrologers would like to know more about, but often the hardest part is even knowing where to start. Part of the challenge is that, in order to do medical, the astrologer needs to be able to combine natal techniques with horary and electional ones. Heretofore, there has been no mechanism that has taught so interdisciplinary a subject.

Now there is. The Classical Studies courses - Natal, Horary, and Electional - teach the prerequisites. The prerequisite is either those three Courses, or Lee's Pre-medical Intensive or Workbook, which contains the relevant selections. To aid your understanding, a number of the Learning with Lee Series are on medical topics, and are optionally available. Answers to the questions in the Lessons must be submitted before you continue to the course proper.

By the final session, the student should be able to evaluate the natal chart from a standpoint of health, diet, exercise and vitality; answer questions concerning cases with existing disease; and evaluate proposed surgery times.

The purpose to this Course is not to engage in medical practice as understood legally. The purpose is to provide the astrologer with the tools to offer specialized services to their clients, mainly concerning the timing and circumstances of medical care provided by licensed practioners.

Lee has taught on-line at Kepler College for ten years. In her private courses, she takes that experience in cutting edge on-line instruction technology and applies it to a less academic and more practical setting. Her take on adult education? Strictly business! She won't waste your time on exercises that don't teach you how to do the method she is presenting. And that is the purpose of a teacher, after all - not to impress you, not to overwhelm you - but to give you an introduction to the material in a way that you leave the course better educated - which means not only knowing more about the material, but being able to ask questions, and explore more on your own.

But the real value of this Course is not the lessons, but the opportunity to learn from your own examples. These become the subject for a mentoring environment where personal feedback accelerates your learning. This Course gives you the opportunity to work with Lee, not simply read Lee’s books and Course materials.

To pass the Course, the work submitted must demonstrate a consistently high quality. Lessons may be submitted in either English or French.

Lessons may be submitted by fax or e-mail, except where particular questions require diagrams which may not be appropriate in text format. Rich Text Format attachments, Word, or Word Perfect attachments are also acceptable.

Pre-requisite:

If you have not taken Horary, Natal and Electional with Lee, the CS Pre-Med Course (see below) consists of two lessons from Horary, and one each from Natal and Electional. To aid your understanding, a tape of a weekend in which Lee presented this material in San Francisco is optionally available (see the Tapes Section of Products and Services). Answers to the questions in the Lessons must be submitted before you continue to the Medical Course proper.

The Pre-Med covers an introduction to classical astrology in general, and interroragtory astrology in particular, the calculation of temperament types, and an introduction to surgery electional.

New! The pre-med course available on-line! Once you register for a course, you will always have access to the latest version through your user login.
