Well Organized, Well Taught, and Absolutely Amazing

Although only 4 weeks, this course really helped me to form a deeper understanding of how to blend the planets, signs, and houses. All of the teachers were incredibly accessible and had a genuine interest in making sure that we understood the material. Thanks so much!

Incredible class

I've been formally studying astrology for about 2 years and informally for about 15. This class really put a flow to the information and helped bridge the gap between understanding what a planet needs, how it meets those needs and which area of life they are being met. Incredible lectures and great readings to help connect the dots. Such a great class!

Wonderful teaching environment

Having a variety of teachers was fantastic! So interesting to get a range of foci from Jungian to Evolutionary and see the level of sophistication in teaching and examples. Loved the class—Thank you Tony!

Planet in a Sign in a House

This class gave us a good amount of practice in differentiating a planet, sign, and house and placing a planet in a sign in a house. Excellent instruction! My only advice is to order the book weeks prior to the class.

Extraordinary teachers!

Extraordinary teachers with depth and capacity to create relevance and meaning! I was inspired by the teaching!
