Term 1 of Fundamentals & Essentials of Astrology takes you from discovering the Solar System and reconnecting to the Cosmos, learning the astronomy of our planets, exploring how energy works and lives through us, to learning about the planetary archetypes via Greek mythology. All that while learning the astrological meanings of the Planets and Signs of the Zodiac! Upon completion you’ll have a firm grounding and depth of understanding of the first two stepping stones of astrological knowledge, the planets and signs, from a psychological perspective. And you’ll be ready to move on to Term 2: Houses and Aspects.

This is the astrology course that I wish I had found when I began my study of astrology! Can’t wait to see you in class!
