Welcome to the website of Charlie Obert, student of astrology.
News! I am pleased to announce that I will be teaching a five session class on Essential Dignities for Kepler College. This course will be offered three times a year, as part of their regular degree credit program. The class begins on Sunday, July 10. Here is the link to my Kepler College Essential Dignities Class.
Here is what you can find on my website.
My first book on traditional astrology was published in Spring 2015. It has been well received, and has gotten good reviews, including in Mountain Astrologer and Dell Horoscope. Please see the page for more information about my book, An Introduction to Traditional Natal Astrology.
Note:The book is now available in both softcover and PDF electronic download format.
Here is a link to a free webinar on Aspects, Seeing and Aversion that I presented for Kepler College in October 2015.
I have a blog, aka journal, where I post new entries twice a month, on the first and third Thursday of each month. I will be exploring what it is like to be an astrologer in a world where there is no single accepted system of astrology – what the issues are, and how different schools of astrology can communicate and learn from each other.
If this is your first time here, you might want to see my Credo, and the journal post where I lay out my Worldview. I am a philosophy major, and I think it important that we astrologers take time to examine what kind of world our work assumes, and what are the implied values of that world.
There is information on the readings that I do.
The following sections are available under the Resources Menu.
Under Traditional you will find handouts that are used in my ongoing Traditional astrology study group..
Under Modern are resources that are useful if you are studying for NCGR certification. This includes chart calculation instructions, and instructions for finding the Adjusted Calculation Date (ACD) for secondary progressions.
Under Uranian you can find 90 degree and 360 degree dials, and other related material.
