I liken reading an astrological chart to cooking or baking. We look at the ingredients. Separately they reveal a distinct flavor profile, taken together they may yield something entirely new and surprising. I know there are a lot of wonderful apps and websites out there where you can, for a fairly nominal fee, receive a reading of your chart piecemeal. That is to say, the meaning behind Mars in Sagittarius or the Moon in Libra. But that doesn’t empower you, as the recipient, to truly metabolize the information, or to understand the material at a deeper level. Nor does it invite participatory self-investigation.
After years of providing individualize sessions to hundreds of wonderful clients from Los Angeles and worldwide, I often get asked: "Where is a good resource to learn about Astrology?" or "Where can I learn how to read a natal chart?" Finally, I created an affordable course that offers just that. My intention here is to provide a different perspective, to see the energy as dynamic, rather than pathological or pre-determined.
We can work with the energy we’re made of or it can work us.
I prefer the former. It gives us agency, allowing us to move in alignment with our destiny with purpose and grace. In this course, we will explore the basic energy of a Natal Chart. The Houses. The Signs. The Planets and Luminaries. But perhaps, most importantly, we’ll explore what these things mean to us.
My intention is for this workshop to be one of discovery. The more we understand ourselves, the more responsible we become to our journey and to the fulfillment of our promise.
Life is not a straight line and it’s certainly not always a cake walk, but it is purposeful. We are what we seek. We have all of it within us. Each of our natal charts is like a snowflake: entirely unique. The more willing we are to discover ourselves, the richer and more meaningful our lives become.
This workshop is an opportunity to understand the beliefs, attitudes, and patterns that govern our lives and that reveal themselves, sometimes consciously, sometimes unconsciously, in our relationships to ourselves, others and the world at large. As it’s been said, we don’t see the world as it is, we see it as we are.
How to Navigate the Course
There are 5 Lessons within the course. Each lesson includes a video, written content, illustrations, and journal prompts. You will need to download and print the Natal Chart worksheet and have a journal to write out the answers to the journal prompts. You may go at your own pace and navigate through all the lessons. Upon completion of the course, you will have the opportunity to submit questions.
This is a self-guided course that invites self-investigation to nurture your intuition. We invite you to write down questions while working through the course prior to submitting. At the end of the course, you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions. I encourage you to move through the entire course before submitting, as you may find the answer lies in another module.
