Getting Started with Astrology

If you’re interested in learning astrology and you’re not sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place!

Astrology can get complicated once you start getting into it. But we’ve created a series of courses designed to make it easy to get up to speed quickly with the basics.

It’s important in any course of study to have a strong foundation in the astro basics.

The following courses, webinars, audio downloads and reading suggestions will help you create a solid course of self-guided astrology study. Read through the options, and reach out to us if you have any questions about where to start.

Introduction to Astrological Symbols Course

Intro to Astrology Course

If you’re interested in a structured program for learning astrology, you’re in luck! This first course of our  four-year program is the perfect introduction to astrology. Whether you decide to continue through the program after this course is up to you. But this is an excellent course to start your journey with.

This course introduces you to the core building blocks of astrology: Signs, Planets and Houses. All styles of astrology are built out of these core symbols. You’ll also learn a little about astrology’s history and some of the ways you can use astrology to enrich your life.

Our four-year program is curated with best instructors, books and video lessons to help you learn astrology from the ground up and to become confident reading charts. 

When you enroll in this four-week course, you’ll get instant access to all of the course material, including a discussion area where you can ask questions in real time as you move through the material.

Practical Astrology for Beginners

Practical Astrology for Beginners

Kelly Surtees is a favorite instructor among beginning level astrology students. Her course Practical Astrology for Beginners will introduce you to signs and houses, which she calls the ‘”backdrop and the stage” of the birth chart. Kelly is a modern astrologer who also uses traditional techniques, and is known for her accessible and practical teaching style.

If you enjoy Kelly’s course, you’ll have the opportunity to study more with her directly in her chart interpretation series, which will take you deeper down the astrology rabbit hole into planets, aspects, and personality interpretation. And by the end of the series, you’ll have just enough information be able to start practicing reading charts yourself.

Learn Astrology Foundations with a Classic Master Teacher

If you enjoy listening to audio courses on the go, we highly recommend the audio course Beginning Astrology: A Language of Life by the late Robert Blaschke. We are blessed to have this timeless recording available thanks to Robert’s surviving family members. Robert was known as a clear, patient and inspiring teacher and we’ve received many positive reviews about his teaching.

Many beginners have established a solid foundation with this course from which to delve deeper into astrological practice. You’ll learn about the planets, signs and houses, aspects, and chart patterns. Robert uses many real-life chart examples to help you apply what you’re learning. The course includes audio as well as all of the original handouts he used when teaching the course.

How Fast Can I Become an Astrologer?

I want to honest with you. Although you can learn enough to get started with any of the above courses, astrology takes years to master. While you can really get up to speed with basic chart interpretation in as little as a year with dedicated study, you’ll need longer than that to feel truly confident and proficient.

With dedication and time to study intensively, as well as a lot of practice, you could potentially start reading charts professionally in two to four years.

Ask any great professional astrologer and they’ll tell you that astrology is a lifelong study. There is always more to learn, many perspectives and techniques to discover, and new approaches to looking at the birth chart, some of which you’ll find simply by looking at many charts yourself.

See the World in New Light

And that’s why I’m SO excited you’re about to start your journey exploring astrology! You’ll start to see your friends and family, and the world in general, in an entirely new light – illuminated by the light of the cosmos in which we all find ourselves.

So I’m glad you’ve found us. You’re in good company.

We’re here to help you at any stage of your learning journey. If you don’t know where to start, or need help creating a plan of study to suit your goals, contact us. We offer a free orientation consult for any Astrology University student to help you get your bearings and figure out your next steps. Reach out any time.

Take care,

Tony Howard
