- About APA
Astrological Psychology, as taught in our well-established modular home study courses and book, can set you firmly on the path to becoming the kind of person you want to be. Whether you are starting at beginner or more advanced level, you will be exploring your own chart as part of your individual learning process, under the guidance of your personal tutor (if you so choose, in the case of learning from the book).
What makes you tick?
Using astrological psychology you will learn how to go deeply into your chart and discover what drives you from within. You will begin to understand your true motivation, and you will explore where your energy can best be directed. Interpreting the natal chart starts at the centre of the chart, where the surrounding coloured aspects are significant and offer information about the different motivating energies you have at your disposal. Using this area of the chart you will understand what truly makes you tick and what drives you from a deep, unconscious level.
You will learn how to interpret a chart starting from its central core, then work your way outwards through different layers and levels towards the environment and the outside world. Each of the five distinct and independent levels in the chart is significant.
The first level is the central core at the heart of the chart and it represents the essential spiritual self. The coloured aspect structure shows unconscious motivation. The planets represent psychological drives and the signs indicate inherited characteristics. The houses, or areas of life expression and experience, are at the fifth and final level. This represents the environment the world around us.
Behaviour patterns – “Did I really do that?”
Astrological psychology is unique amongst other systems as it uses more than 40 recognised aspect figures, which relate to observable patterns of human behaviour. These were researched, tried and tested by Bruno Huber over a number of years and are often described by students working on their own charts as being “spot on”. During your studies you will learn about the aspect patterns in your own chart and how to identify your own behaviour patterns. When you to recognise and understand your most familiar behaviour patterns you will be able to choose whether to change or refine them, or to continue expressing them as they are. You will also be able to identify and focus on your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs. Becoming more aware of them you can then choose to give them better attention and expression in your life.
Age Progression and your Life Path
As well as learning how to be more aware of your strengths and weaknesses and how to put this knowledge to use in your everyday life, you will learn how to use Age Progression.
Age Progression relates directly to your life journey. Using the chart, it shows which point you are right now in life as well as where you’re heading, and is often found to be the most interesting and engaging technique used in astrological psychology. This technique was researched in depth by Bruno Huber, and is a sharply accurate tool to use for the timing of psychological life experiences and events.
Nature, Nurture and childhood conditioning
Studying with the Astrological Psychology Association, you will explore how the family you grew up in conditioned your behaviour and shaped the way you relate to others. You will begin to understand how the influences of your upbringing and environment might impact on your life now. With this enhanced knowledge and understanding in place you will be able to assess and improve on how you approach everyday tasks at hom as well as problem solving and working with colleagues as a team in the workplace. Most important of all, you will discover the most successful direction for you to follow on your own personal path of self-discovery and improvement.
