ASTROLOGY 

Life-long  Learning 

Students show up when the Teacher is ready.

And the Teacher shows up when the Student is ready.

Learning Astrology takes time, repetition, review, research and more review.

And practice, practice, practice.

It takes a LONG TIME to learn Astrology - keep this in mind.

As of the Autumn of 2021, I offer several levels of online, interactive, Astrology classes.

Students attend in the Zoom classroom environment and

handouts are available for download prior to each class via DROPBOX.

I have been teaching students Astrology since September 2011.

Learning Astrology for 23 years, I continue to uncover more layers, and my own AHA! moments,

from my Birth chart. This is Astrology.

It grows and goes deeper as we do, personally.

Whether you've experienced a real Astrology chart reading or not,

you are living your Birth chart - what you signed up to learn, experience,

and be challenged by, as you Soulfully Evolve.

Learn the Basics - my ASTRO101 class - to gain insight and AHA! moments - Soulfully, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically - into your own Life path. The whys, wherefores and especially the whens!

You will expand out to more deeply understand your Self through these classes.

And from there, the other people in your life if you decide to LEARN MORE through

ASTRO201 Basic Interpretation classes!

How we're all truly connected.

The fundamentals of Astrology

It has been documented, via the early written words in cuneiforms and hieroglyphs from the Sumerians / Babylonians / Assyrians and Egyptians, that Astrology has been in use at least 6,000 years. Who knows how much longer previously in oral history?

 

Astrology began with celestial measurement by observation only, long before written history.

 

Astrology, religion and medicine were intermixed with correspondences realized between them early on – they interrelated with one another.

 

The richest vein of astrological records came from the library of Sardanapalus, last King of Assyria (7th Century BC) where observatories covered the whole kingdom, with professional astrologers reporting their work continuously.

 

A state library supplied all needed information to prognosticate times and seasons for agriculture, and portents for King and State – not for individuals as we do now until the Greeks turned Astrology into “of the people” or Genethliacal – it began the reading of horoscopes / birth charts as we know today.

The Ancients believed what wasn’t caused by men must be caused by Gods – the deities of the planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn). These same Gods were the basis if myths of all countries around the ancient world.

 

The history of Astrology is also the history of Astronomy (we cannot have one without the other).

 

European/North American Astrology (Western Astrology) is derived from ancient Mesopotamia.

 

Key Astrologers from the past have been: Miletus, Pythagoras, Berosus, Ptolemy, Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton. 

 

Modern Astrologers include: A.J. Pearce, Alan Leo, Charles Carter, Alice Bailey, Carl Jung, Dane Rudhyar, Stephen Orroyo, Stephen Forrest, Rick Levine, Liz Greene, Harold Sasportas, Demetra George, Barbara Hand Clow, Jeffrey Wolf Green, Robert Hand, Neil Michelsen, Celeste Teal, Noel Tyl, Robert Ohotto, Daniel Giamario, Cayelin Castell and Rose Marcus - to name a few!
