Level One Foundational Astrology starts - January 2020
Level Two Evolutionary Astrology In Progress (new Course in 2020)

Aimed for the absolute beginner and for those who wish to review the basics, this foundational course is designed to provide a solid foundation in astrology, and to build skills and confidence for basic natal chart interpretation. All instruction will be based in the principles of Evolutionary Astrology. In addition to instruction, exercises, and homework, you will be supported via group discussion and study. The foundation course can be used to launch self study or to set the stage for further formal training.

Part One: Building Blocks (7 weeks)  – January 15, 22, 29, February 12, 19, 26, March 4

Students will learn the building blocks of astrology through an exploration of the planets, signs and houses, the basics of the astronomy of astrology, the archetypes as understood through the lens of Evolutionary Astrology, planets and more . . . .

  • Hemisphere & Quadrant Orientation
  • Elements & Modes
  • Planets, Signs, & Houses

Part Two: Planets in Signs (6 weeks) March 11, 18, 25; April 1, 8, 15

Synthesis is the art of blending elements in the chart together.  In this class we will start with the foundation – Planets in Signs.  We’ll start with an overview of planets and then move to playing with the planets through the signs. Homework will be assigned at the end of each class – be prepared to come to class and participate.

Part Three: Planets in Signs, in Houses – (6 weeks) April 29, May 6, June 3, 10, 17, 24

We will concentrate on putting depth into the karmic and psychological principles of the planets in signs as they manifest through the houses.  This is a class in astrological reasoning – we will play with the planets in the signs, changing the house, in order to add further to learning synthesis. Homework will be assigned at the end of each class – be prepared to come to class and participate.

Part Four: Planetary Dispositors – (6 weeks) August 19, 26; September 2, 9, 16, 23

In this series of classes, we take Part 2 (Planets in Signs) and Part 3, (Houses)  then add  the dispositor to the synthesis picture.  Each week will take two planets and  work them through a variety of dispositor scenarios.   Homework will be assigned at the end of each class – be prepared to come to class and participate.

Part Five: Houses & House Rulers- (7 weeks) October 7, 14, 21, 28; November 4, 11, 18

Up to this point we have been exploring the “planetary view”  of the chart, and in this series of classes, we will introduce and explore the “house view” of chart interpretation.  We’ll start with an overview of the 12 houses, reviewing the exterior (traditional), and well as interior (evolutionary) applications.  Not only will we explore house rulerships, but we will also look at how planets in the houses effect the interpretation.

Please note the Full Schedule for 2021 and 2022 is posted below – When you register you will receive a PDF of Class Schedule and Zoom Link.

To participate in Level Two it is required that you already understand natal chart basics, Planets, Signs, Houses, Aspect patterns. If you have questions read the description for Level One and if if you are familiar with that content then join us in this level. Contact us via email if you have further questions.

What is Evolutionary Astrology?:

What is my purpose? Why am I here? What are my lessons? Evolutionary Astrology seeks to understand the nature of the soul, its desire for growth, and its journey from past, to present, to intended future. Using a specific methodology to read a birth-chart as taught by Jeffrey Wolf Green, you will learn how to track and describe specific past life complexes to better understand the root causes of psychological and emotional patterns, triggers, or impediments that lie behind current life issues. You will also learn to discern the souls’ intention for its learning and desire for evolutionary advancement and growth.

SEGMENT ONE – The Principles of Evolutionary Astrology (Feb 2- March 2, 2021)

Welcome Meeting (Live) – February 2
We will take you on informative tour of Zoom, the Student Site and all the logistics you need to know to start your journey. We will end with an group intentional journey to plug you into your Cosmic Guides and Higher Wisdom! The  1st pre-recorded class will be released after the welcome meeting.

The Philosophy of Evolutionary Astrology (Pre-Recorded)  – Feb 2
What is the correlation between Pluto and the soul? How does the soul evolve? 

  • Duality of desire
  • Dynamic of attraction and resistance
  • Three reactionary impulses
  • Four ways Pluto affects evolution
  • The Water Trinity: Ego, Soul, Source

Evolutionary States (Pre-Recorded)) – Feb 9
One size does not fit all! We are all unique souls and we will respond to the propensities of the planetary influences in our own unique ways. As Jeffrey Wolf Green would often say, the person who asks “When can I expect my BMW?” and the person who asks “When can I expect enlightenment?” will have a very different ways of experiencing life and accessing the potentials that are indicated via their natal chart. This class will outline the four natural evolutionary states and their subcategories.

  • Consensus
  • Individuated
  • Spiritual
  • Dimly evolved, De-evolved


Discussion Session on Material Covered so Far
(Live) – Feb 16

Karmic Complexes (Pre-recorded) – Feb 16
For the EA astrologer, it is important to examine how the imprints of past continue to shape the evolution of the present and what the soul is choosing to resource in order to create the desired/intended evolution.

  • Dynamics of psychological complexes / present and past life
  • Karma: what is it?
  • How Karma imprints and affects the soul’s evolution
  • How trauma impacts the psyche and its effect on evolution

Introduction to the Lunar Nodes (Pre-Recorded) – Feb 23
The interplay of past, present and future are reflected in the lunar nodal axis. The moon’s nodes are an essential component to the Pluto paradigm and chart interpretation methodology

  • The Lunar Nodes
  • Nodal Rulers
  • Aspects to the nodes
  • Special nodal rules
  • Skipped Steps

Every month, the Moon moves through eight primary phases in its relationship to the Sun. Moving from New Moon to Balsamic, these Soli/Lunar phases are also descriptive of various personality characteristics. These eight phases are also the umbrella under which, aspects between any two planetary bodies form an energy exchange. To understand and apply the phasal relationship between two planets to aspect work, can both deepen and simplify your ability to interpret and synthesize the total chart.

Graduation happens at your own pace but includes a combination of:

Graduate Certification Package

Homework Cases (2 of these) – We will set homework charts that you can work on individually in pairs or in teams throughout the training. By the time you get to graduation you will already have had experience in interpreting parts of a chart and communicating/consulting with a ‘client’. As part of further demonstration of your skills, for certification you will be assigned 2 charts to do ‘solo’ where you will submit an interpretation with guidelines, we will provide for you background bio info on the ‘client’.  Each one of us will review your homework and send back comments. 

Supervision Cases (2 of these) – Where you consult with one of us (you can choose which one of us to work with) on practice cases you have done, summarizing questions and/or issues you feel you need further guidance on. Before presenting your Graduating cases you should have at least 2 Supervision sessions. This will help you hone your skills and get detailed personal instruction on how to get the most out your
chart interpretation skills.

Graduate Cases (3 of these) – It is suggested that you practice, practice, practice with
non-paying clients as you are honing your abilities!
But once you are confident with your skills and have already met the previous requirements, you will record and submit 3 consultations that you do with a ‘client’. This can be a friend or acquaintance or a paid client.

There is an additional cost of $500 which includes all three of these graduation components.
