Very fun and educational!

I really enjoyed this class as I am walking away with a considerably deeper understanding of inner planets. Most importantly, I was learning how to think critically about how planetary energies can express in different ways according to the sign they occupy in someone's chart, instead of just reading cookbook descriptions available in many astrology books. I started to pay attention to how people I know personally use their Mercury, Mars, and Venus. It is absolutely fascinating to observe and recognize certain patterns in what they do or say. I also enjoyed humane, compassionate approach instructors use to teach course material.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!

This class is so helpful and powerful when diving into the personal planets! This really opens up and widens your perspective, and I felt I was able to explore all the archetypes through the personal planets, which is so very useful to apply in everyday life and/or practice. This is a course of necessity !

The best way to learn and truly understand the Inner Planets

If you have been struggling to understand the energies of Mercury, Venus and Mars and how they colour your personality - what you like, your style of communication and how you fight for what you want - then this is the course for you. Great reading material, great lessons from fantastic teachers. Go to the basics and understand them. Highly recommend this course!

The Inner Planets Course

The Inner Planets Course was delightful, for me! There is no way you can work through this course without working through the inner planets within yourself, just a little. You won't want to miss this one!
