online course

SEPTEMBER 23 to OCTOBER 19, 2020


In this course we will explore the four angles – powerful points in our chart that constellate energy. Sometimes called “the cross of matter”, these angles can be understood as points through which core energetics in our life manifest – from our home environment, to how we meet the world and step into life, to our life’s mission or career, to how we meet “the other”.

We’ll learn the meanings of the IC, the Ascendant, the MC and the Descendant. We’ll discover how to interpret those points through their signs and also the planets ruling those signs.

Dates: September 23 to October 19, 2020
Live Classes Wednesdays at 9am Pacific Time
Live Q&A Sessions Sundays at 9am or 4pm Pacific Time (you can submit questions by email if you can’t attend live)
$295 (non-certification) / $350 (certification*)
*Certification track includes homework and exam feedback.

online summit

October 3-4, 2020


In every year that passes, we might reflect on the pivotal and life-changing events that transpired. But certain years stand out as especially dramatic or overflowing with developmental pressures. 2020 will be remembered as one of those years. As astrologers we knew this, and that’s why we got a head start with the conversation in last year’s summit. But it’s not over yet!

In this inspiring summit, we’ll hear several top astrologers review the transits of 2020 and look ahead into 2021, with an eye on what we’ve been preparing for. Saturn-Pluto cycles herald events that leave a lasting impact, and that we need to respond to for years to come. Now that we know more specifically what we’re dealing with, what choices will we make going forward? What does the new world look like that we’re now creating? And how can we tap into the deepest resources of our creativity to birth life-affirming and positive change as we all dream into being the world we want to see?

Dates: October 3-4, 2020
The summit is free to watch live. Purchase the All Access Pass to own the recordings and watch on your own time. 

online webinar

October 10, 2020

Astrology as Sacred Play

“On the seashore of endless worlds, children play.” – Rabindranath Tagore.

In this time of Capricorn, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all joining their own south nodes there, confronted now by the extended stay of Mars in Aries, we may feel a narrowing of attention to the ‘real’, measurable, concrete events that are piling up.  Yet the goat of Capricorn also has a magical and mystical tail, and this suggests the deep need to periodically relocate our consciousness in the deep waters this creature was said to live within between his various creations in the world of form.  This energy is profoundly creative, resourcing, and erotic.  In the ancient world, it is the place from which new worlds were first glimpsed and crafted.

In this webinar, journeying with ancient myths and modern life stories, we will explore the rich metaphors of astrological play and dreaming, and how we can creatively participate with the sky and one another in developing a robust play-space capable of engaging deeply, meaningfully, and spontaneously with a wide range of dynamics in the chart.

Date: Saturday, October 10, 2020

Time: 9:00 AM Pacific Time  (convert to your time zone)
Running Time: Approximately 90 min.
$25 (through October 8, $30 thereafter)

The Finger of God? The Nature of the Astrological Yod

In this webinar Mark explores the nature of two inconjuncts focused on the same apex planet which thus forms the astrological Yod. Establishing the fundamental nature of aspects through the natural zodiac we can see the inconjunct as being of a combined Aries – Virgo nature and the Yod as representing the inclusion of an Aries – Scorpio intensity to an aspect already in crisis. We will see the Yod in action through a balanced mix of celebrity case histories with real-world client examples to gain a realistic idea of how this most stressful of aspects manifests in our lives.

Date: October 24, 2020
Time: 9:00 AM Pacific Time  (convert to your time zone)
Running Time: Approximately 90 min.
$25 (through Oct 22, $30 thereafter)
