>To wit, as written by one student, the ancient system of
astrological symbolism needs to "be lifted out of the hands of
those interested in predictional astrology, out of the hands of
the thousands who at this time spend much time 'casting'
horoscopes (seeking to interpret their usually erroneous
conclusions), and placed in the hands of trained mathematical
scientists and in the hands of those who have given as much time
to scientific training along astrological lines as is now given
to training a reputable physician, a chemist or a biologist."(2)

My interpretation of this is that astrology would be taught in
universities. Other required courses would include astronomy,
mathematics, statistics, computers, psychology, etc., as part of
four year program. Perhaps those seeking admission would be
required to submit their own natal chart and/or interpret it.

An intriguing idea, but first you'd have to get the general
population to believe that astrology has any value at all, before
you'd embark on establishing such a curriculum in public
univerisities. Such programs may already exist in esoteric
