Follow astrology down the sacred paths in the written word. The greatest collection of works on the soul and, surprisingly, its intersection with astrological concepts, come from traditional religions. And where else can you explore the Torah, New Testament and the Koran and discuss astrology? 

Instructor: Enid Newberg
Required text found under the self-paced section of the materials list for all courses.

Youtube has been a revolutionary force for astrologers today. It provides a platform to reach others with your unique astrological voice, demonstrate your expertise, attract clients from around the world, and served as a tool for many astrologers to be financially independent and self-supporting.

Prerequisite: Intermediate Western Astrology

In this innovative course, you will learn to do more with less as we focus on the essential features of Indian Astrology that will allow you, the motivated student, to begin reading charts in only 5 weeks.

Instructor: Kenneth D. Miller M.A., Jyotish Kovid
Prerequisites: Having a basic knowledge of planets, houses, and rulerships are essential. Having a beginning knowledge of Indian astrology is useful but not essential. We will be using the South Indian chart style in the class. They are easy to read and Kenneth will provide a short video explaining how to look at that kind of chart. 

Did you know that in India they have a five-fold qualitative division of time that differs significantly from our Western time concepts? If you are a Western astrologer you will learn how to easily integrate this and other considerations in your practice without having to learn Indian astrology!

Subcategories

Most of our course offerings focus on the most common aspects of modern astrological practice. But there are additional unique traditions that have a different perspective and/or philosophical underpinning that astrologers incorporate into their practice. This includes Esoteric Astrology (originally developed by Alice Bailey or the Church of Light), Evolutionary Astrology (originally developed by Jeffrey Wolf Green and Steven Forrest), Uranian/Symmetrical Astrology (developed in the early 20th century), Astro*Carto*Graphy (developed by Jim Lewis) and  Astromapping, Hellenistic Astrology, Medieval Astrology and Indian Astrology. 

This certificate requires 30 weeks from a range of courses focused on these traditions.

Astromapping is the art of using the astrological chart to determine a good place to live or even the best way to structure one's local environment (similar to Fung Shui).  Astro*Carto*Graphy is the art of using the natal chart to determine what areas of world support or challenge the natal planet positions. Local Space astrology uses the natal chart to interact with your local environment so that it supports who you are. Like Feng Shui, you can use these techniques even to the level of an individual room in your house.

The Astromapping certificate requires 20 weeks of instruction and includes the 10-week course WL220 Astro*Carto*Graphy, and two 5-week courses - WL221A Local Space and WL221B Astromapping Practicum.

Astrological counseling has unique features. This certificate requires 30 weeks of instruction. It provides students with a solid foundation of the considerations, issues, and ethics of astrological counseling and the ability to work with clients in the most common area of practice:

  • relationships,
  • one's own capacity for and style of giving and receiving love, and
  • the interactions of lovers, spouses, parents and children, and the family itself.

This certificate focuses on building skills for natal chart interpretation. The required courses provide students with the skills they need to successfully interpret a natal chart, an understanding of many of the types of tools they can use (and any controversies surrounding them) and a consideration of the ethical issues involved. It gives students a broad enough view that they can also understand the different approaches available for interpretation (such as traditional, modern, or evolutionary) so they can decide for themselves what direction interests them further.

The standard certificate (30 weeks) requires W101, W102, and W103. The extended certificate (40 weeks of instruction) requires the natal chart practicum, W104, which hones student's ability to work with common client questions (based on actual client charts and issues).

This certificate includes courses covering various methods of moving the chart in time, including techniques such as transits, progressions, solar arc directions, solar returns, planetary returns, profections, elections, rectification and more.

W110 and W111 are required for this certificate (20 weeks). Students can choose to take W112 and/or W113 (practicums focused on application) to fulfill the requirement of 30 weeks (the standard certificate) or 40 weeks (the extended certificate) of instruction.
