This astrologically based course is geared toward youth for the purpose of self discovery, and awareness, but is an excellent way for people of all ages, including their parents, to gain a foundational understanding of the archetypal energies of the 12 zodiac signs, their houses, their meaning, and purpose in your life, and how they relate to one another. This course will help youth with self development and actualiation in an unconventional, yet practical, highly effective, and personalized way. They will learn about all 12 zodiac signs, their characteristics, attributes, their rulerships, and "house" associations aka a particular area of life which has relevance to us all, and it will give them a solid understanding of astrology to build upon for future courses. Every zodiac sign represents 1 of 12 houses on the wheel. Each house represents a key part of life, and society to develop through intentional thought, and discussion. Each youth will be given assignments for contemplation, and self reflection that they will be able to share in conversation with their peers in the following areas of life:
