Locate the light to your purpose

The Ascendant is the most personal point of a birth chart. It symbolizes our life task, what we’re called to bring into existence on this Earth. If you’re in doubt about what that is, you can find your very own North Star to lead you to your purpose by looking at the rising sign and its ruler.

Master astrologer and musician Alexander Von Schlieffen opens out the harmonics of the birth chart to us.  He’s a joyful teacher who strikes the notes and tensions of the signs and planets into chords that move us.  In this 4-class course, he plays his last set in the Advanced series around the reasons that we’re here. 

We strongly recommend you take either “Astrology for Beginners” or “A Deeper Look at Astrology” before signing up for this course.

Course Description

“The Ascendants and Their Rulers” is the third of three advanced astrology courses offered by Alexander Von Schlieffen on the Jung Platform. 

The advanced courses can be taken independently, although they make most sense taken in order. They are:

Part One: Elements & Quadrants

Part Two: The Sun and the Moon in the Quadrants

Part Three: The Ascendants and Their Rulers 

In this course,”The Ascendants and Their Rulers”,  Alexander closes the cycle of advanced courses and invites us to spiral out on our own.

The rising sign shows what was happening in the sky at the moment you were born. The sign and the position of its ruler reveal what is asking to be raised into life with your help. To live a meaningful life, the motive of the rising sign has to be in the center of your personality and efforts. If you don’t allow your inborn purpose to be a main motor in your life, you will be frustrated no matter how “successful” you are.

At the same time, fulfilling your personal mission serves more than yourself.  The ascendent of the individual brings something that the whole family system needs for its further development. When you are true to your calling you are also furthering the good of the group. Your self-integrity may create waves for some around you, but that may be just what the ecosystem needs. .

The 12 signs of the zodiac that can appear as the ascendant portray what the goal of your mission is. The position of the ruler of each ascendant sign in the birth chart reveals in what area of life that mission needs to be carried out.

Find the Guiding Star of a chart and where it wants to lead the ship of the soul with “The Ascendants and Their Rulers”.  Head toward what you came here for. Learn how to help others do the same by contemplating the Keys to the Core in their charts. 

 If you’re new to astrology, we strongly suggest you take either “Astrology for Beginners” or the somewhat more advanced course “A Deeper Look at Astrology”. Both courses are also with Alexander Von Schlieffen, and reveal his particular perspective on astrology. 

This course is ideal if

  • Get a fast track into an individual’s deepest personal mission as revealed by their ascendant sign and the placement of its ruler.
  • Continue your studies in astrology with a talented, respected and original astrologer. (This course will be difficult for newcomers to astrology.)
  • Use astrology as an adjunct in your coaching or therapy practice.
  • Understand yourself, your family, colleagues and friends better.

In class one, Alexander will look at the rising signs of Aries, ruled by Mars, Taurus ruled by Venus, and Gemini ruled by Mercury. In this class, as in all that follow, he’ll discuss the placement of the ascendant’s ruler in each of the quadrants of the birth chart.
