Learn to Read Your Astrology Chart (2 parts)
August 10, 7 PM (Part 1) and Aug 11, 7 PM ( Part 2) Learn to Read Your Astrology Chart, offered by Patty Wallenberg, a 2 part class
"I think of this mini course as an alternative to spending $250 to have someone deliver my astrology chart for the coming year. 12 zodiac signs, 10 planets and 12 houses- get to know what that means in your birth chart," from Jo Maldonado.
August 10, 7 PM, Part 1
Most of us know our sun signs but do you know what house it is in and the added influences? Do you know what sign your moon is in or your rising sign? Do you even know what that might mean? This course will explore the very basics of astrology and give you the tools to find out more about your personal astrology. We will discuss the 12 zodiac signs and 12 houses and then look at our astrology charts to find more pieces that help build a fuller astrological profile of ourselves.
Our first class will teach you about the zodiac signs that everyone is familiar with. We will go over the full 12 signs and give keywords for each and show the symbol for each that is placed in your astrology chart. We will also discuss the planets as they are strong players in our astrology chart. You will learn the energies of each planet and what their symbol looks like.
Aug 11, 7 PM, Part 2
The second class will teach you about the placement in the chart of the planets. We will cover what is known as "the houses," which is where each planet falls as they were located at the time of your birth. Then we will pull together all of the items and explore your own personal birth chart.
You can print out a free astrology chart which you can get from here:
Send your birth date, time and location (city and state) when you register to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don’t know your time, you may have to guess or you can say either born in the morning or evening, or you can just use 12 noon as your time
Venus & Mars: How You Love & How You Fight

Exploring and explaining Mars and Venus in Your Chart.
Knowing more about what house and sign each of these planets are in, will give you a fuller picture of how you relate to others.Your astrology chart shows the way you relate to the world and Mars and Venus are two very different ways of relating. Mars is where your drive and passion comes from. Mars rules your animal instincts like anger and survival. Venus is where you find love and desire. Venus rules romantic attraction, attachments to others, the ability to attract, and what you find worth in.
Path of a Seer/Intuition Building: Silent Language of Communicating, Part 1 & 2
September 24, Saturday, 10 AM and September 25, Sunday, 10 AM EST
Path of a Seer/Intuition Building: Silent Language of Communicating a two part/ 4+ hour course offered by Jo Maldonado
When a common language is not shared, body language is the universal way to communicate. I always felt that to be an accurate reader/seer you must not only have intuitive skills, but an understanding of facts accompanying your gifts. If you're going to do a "read" on someone, or asked to do a reading for someone either of an animal or person, body language is imperative to complete your read.
I have restructured the course I taught at Rollins College on body language to fit your training within Gryphons' Claw: the course of Kinesics, the study of body language. Body posture, facial expressions, body position, stance, eyes and hands send the same messages to animals that they do to people...just more intensified. You will learn all how that works in this course. Watch how intuition and body language merge with ease. Part 1, Sept 24 - presents reading and sending the appropriate signals through posture, body positioning and stance. Part 2, Sept 25 presents how you are read and how to read others through facial expressions, eye movements and hand positioning and movements. Your opinions will change of those you know. More information will come streaming to you and your intuition will step up to its task.
This class will prove to be one of the most valuable assets you have experienced. Class content will consist of specific and documented information along with supporting photos, videos and hands on exercises and assignments.
Coffee & Tea Segments are FREE interviews or classes offered by Gryphons' Claw The School of Practical Magic and hosted by J.R. Maldonado. Join us monthly at 1 PM EST on Wednesdays and hear magical guests and various snippets of information on rituals, spells, animal communications, holidays, boundaries, intuition building, and so much more.
