Certificate Program and Professional Diploma in Astrology

Intensive courses to develop your professional-level skills

Every term includes both electives (some of which may only be offered once per year) and regularly scheduled courses on the Fundamentals of Natal Astrology. 


registerThis course is for students who

  • already know some astrology and have worked with the planets, signs and houses, but want to anchor your understanding, or
  • want to enter into W102 Fundamentals II, but have not taken W101 or passed the W101 test.

Instructor: Enid Newberg
BEGINS: July 20, 2019
TIME: 3:00-5:00 PM PDT / 6:00-800 PM EDT

Students will ground their understanding of the fundamental components of the chart. The focus is mostly on synthesizing the core basics into a layered interpretation. This is an intensive crash course. Be prepared to spend at least 8-10 hours per week on your work. 

Topics covered include:

  • Identifying planetary functions
  • Interpretation of planetary function as modified by polarity, element & mode of action
  • Expanding interpretation through chart patterns
  • Identifying dispositor patterns to better understand what the the ruling planet of each sign has to say
  • Placing where the action occurs within the astrological houses 
  • Separating the meanings of planets, signs and houses
  • Working with the major aspects to tie planets and houses together
  • Working with the major dignities and debilities 
  • Layering interpretation to determine planetary challenges and gifts
  • Identifying skilled and unskilled manifestations of the planets and how to use dispositors and aspects to help

registerAre planets better behaved in some signs than others? In an opposition, what planet is most likely to win the tug of war? Are mutual receptions always nice? The key to answer these questions and many more is understanding dignities and debilities.

Instructor: Charles Obert
DATE: Begins July 21 2019 (5 Sundays) $265
TIME:  From 9:00-11:00 am Pacific Time / 12:00-2:00 am Eastern Time

The traditional astrology tool of dignity and debility is a powerful and nuanced way to add detail to your chart interpretation. But many astrologers do not realize how effective and useful this tool can be or they think it is simply archaic and overly complicated. Nothing could be further from the truth!

The goal of this class is to show how you can reclaim this effective tool.

Can astrology tell us who we are and what we are meant to do?

The essence of the soul’s journey is the discovery of a larger sense of who we are and how we live in the world. In ordinary experience, our interactions with the world are often primarily through our daily work, our job or career. But there are times when we feel "called" and our soul asks that we trod the difficult path to transform both ourselves and our world. This course explores the distinctions between our jobs and our calling. How does this change throughout our lives? How does astrology help us in our journey?

DATE: 5-week course begins August 12, 2019
TIME: 5-7 pm Pacific / 8-10 pm Eastern
Instructors: Enid Newberg and Joseph Crane 
All live sessions are recorded. There is also an online course site with additional materials.

This course provides students with astrological tools that can enhance their life through exploring their personal local landscape.
