Learn astrology from the ground up!

The many complexities of an astrological chart can be overwhelming at first, to say the least. Here is your chance to learn how to interpret charts in a simple manner, carefully delivered to you in manageable stages. Whether you are looking for a way to organize the knowledge you’ve already gathered from reading astrology books and articles, or whether you are brand new to this ancient craft, here is your chance to establish a solid base in chart interpretation and forecasting.

In the Foundations classes, all charts used are those of the students enrolled. We put astrology to the test in every session; we suggest things based on what we see in a class member’s chart, and then we have that person verify or dispute our claims.

All classes have limited enrollment, with usually no more than six students present. This way, you get more individual attention while you continue to learn by doing. You’ll see astrology working through the stories of your classmates and, at the same time, gain a deeper appreciation of your own cycles and patterns. This is real astrology in action!

Register for one Set of classes at a time. Each Set is made up of three classes — either three consecutive weekly sessions, or consolidated into one Saturday Blitz. The Saturday Blitz method is certainly intensive, but with a coffee break and a decent lunch break, there is a comfortable amount of time in which to absorb the material.

Sets A, B, and C comprise Level 1. These classes focus on developing skills in natal chart interpretation. Level 2 is made up of Sets D, E, and F — classes which introduce forecasting by way of transits and progressions, as well as the study of relationships.

Each Set is $105 — whether classes are taken over three weeks or on one Saturday Blitz.

Do make sure you subscribe to the newsletter so you will be informed of class dates as they approach.
