Timing in astrology involves the act of forecasting particular events and trends in time from a person's birth chart. A lot of professional astrologers have a difficult time anticipating specific events in time, such as when a house might sell, or when a person may find a new job. Partly it is because astrologers are not really trained in outer-world events. Most modern astrologers (and even a lot of confused traditional ones) are trained to delineate personality and psychological tendencies. For example, have you ever gone to an astrologer wanting to know when you will find a boyfriend and they instead tell you about your fear of intimacy? That happens. But even for those who are specifically trained in outer-world astrology, it is difficult because there are so many different timing techniques -- both modern and traditional -- and a myriad of charts that we have to search through, that finding a specific event can be like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack! We understand and empathize with our colleagues who don't really earn enough to be rummaging through 30 timing charts to find out when an Amazon order will arrive. Really? Just wait for it.
Frivolous questions aside, timing can be a very useful tool for the well-rounded astrologer and helpful to an eager client who might want to know if pregnancy is in the cards soon, or when a much needed job might be on the horizon. In the TM series of courses you will learn the 5 most reliable and practical timing methods that we've tested (and we've tested a lot!). The good news is that they are not interchangeable. They are like 5 different screwdrivers designed only to be used for their unique tasks. And for most questions, only 2 are really indispensable. But we teach them sequentially because they are ordered from those with the greatest to least impact. Although anyone with the basic astrological vocabulary can take these courses, we recommend that you start with the advanced grammar before taking timing courses because of our heavy use of traditional concepts and syntax in the examples that we give.
