Professional Development Certificate

Astrologers wear many hats - we’re counselors, writers, social media marketers, teachers, and researchers. But whatever your specialty, it’s important to be able to stand in front of an audience and communicate yourself, your ideas, and your astrology with clarity and professionalism.

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.

Prerequisite: Basic knowledge of Indian / Vedic astrology

The Jaimini system of interpretation is appreciated for its ability to provide a wealth of information and is known for its accurate predictions.

This course provides an overview of Jamini Astrology, which reorganizes the chart based on sign aspects, indicators for career, marriage, health, etc.; characteristics that change for every chart. This provides the astrologer with new methods of interpretation. Students will be introduced to the basics as well as some of the alternatives for interpretation with this system.

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.
