The Luminaries Course – Sun and Moon



In this course we will look at two of the most important astrological symbols in the natal chart: the Sun and Moon. Also called the “luminaries,” these key planets relate to the organizing principle of our psyche and our childhood conditioning. Understanding these key symbols is crucial to understanding life themes in the birth chart.

We go beyond basic Sun sign descriptions and explore the Sun as an expression of each person’s hero’s journey. We explore the Moon as the foundation of our needs, emotional self and conditioned habitual responses.

Excellent Course!

Loaded with information! This class really helps a student open up and stretch their mind to understanding how important the Luminaries are in the Natal Chart.

Take this Course

This class is great if you want a hyper-focused crash course on understanding the foundations of the Luminaries. I initially enrolled because my work centers around the moon. However, I learned so much more! My fave aspect of class is that Tony also teaches you must-know-info about the 12 Houses so you're essentially also getting a bonus course. It's also helpful to have two different teachers who know their stuff, alternate classes. It forces you as an astrology student to develop the capacity to hold space for very different ways of interpreting the same astrological symbols pretty early on, which I think is Super Important. I think this class is great for all levels of learning! Tony did a great job of balancing the various competency levels among students...especially when questions were asked that went way over my head. Okay go register. Bye, Iman the Alchemist
