What is embodied astrology? In a word it is connection. As we explore the rhythm and flow of celestial forces we learn how those same forces exist in our world and within each one of us.
Through the study of astrology, we have an opportunity to learn how to consciously work with astrological archetypes and planetary cycles.
In the Introductory Astrology classes and workshops, as well as learn the basic language of astrology, students will learn about astrology in an experiential way.
For those who want to further develop their understanding of astrological principles, incorporate astrology into their current career or become a professional astrologer, the Intermediate and Advanced courses deepen the understanding of astrology, as well as how to use it as a diagnostic and counseling tool.
