Medieval Predictive Tools

The aim of this course is to engage you with what Bernadette Brady considers to be an important set of Medieval astrology tools that add to one’s skills as an astrologer in today’s world.

Course Contents

Lecture 1 –  The Essential Dignities with a focus on Triplicities and their unique predictive tool of Directing by Triplicity. This sounds hard but it is an easy tool to apply visually to a chart to see the overview of a person’s life path.  

Lecture 2 –  The triplicities and the houses. Each house has three levels of meanings, for example the fifth house is children, but also public honours plus lovers. Knowing what level of a house meaning is being indicated by a planetary triplicity can  tighten your astrological work.  

Lecture 3 –  The Firdaria – a predictive tool based in planetary periods that provides a frame work for the transits and progressions but also provides an insightful tool for retrospective work. If you want to know what your Venus is like look back at different Venus periods of your life and see the pattern!    

Lecture 4 –  Reception, and aspects – what aspects are being emphasised in a chart and when is a transit softened in its expression.    

The Medieval Tools course teaches you four powerful tools that can be incorporated into your modern astrological work. These are the tools that we have found most useful in our own work as an astrologer! These tool will allow you to: *Find the key planet in an planetary cluster or aspect pattern. *Understand how to measure the effectiveness of an aspect. *Add levels of meaning to the houses through the triplicities. *Add two new predictive techniques to your astrological tools. These four lectures are over four hours of lectures supported by handouts. Additionally, there are some 'how to' videos.
