Course Description

Astrology is the study of the relationship between the relative positions of certain celestial bodies and life here on earth. Because the word astrology comes from the Greek words astron, meaning ‘star' and logos, meaning ‘word', we can literally translate astrology to mean the language of the stars. A language and practice that has developed over thousands of years by numerous cultures around the world since its earliest recorded beginnings in the third millennium BC.
In this self-paced, online course we will explore the wonderful world of astrology, and how it can impact your daily life. We'll discuss the basics, terminology, symbols, natal charts, the twelve signs of the Zodiac, the planets, the houses, elements & modalities, angles, quadrants, aspects, orbs, and so much more. And by the end of this class, we'll put together all of the knowledge gained so that we can determine a person's astrological chart! So what are you waiting for? Join us today, and begin learning about the fundamentals of astrology!
