How to Learn Astrology

Beginning Astrology: Understanding Yourself and Others

Instructor:  Anne Reith, Ph.D.




Come learn astrology and also explore your life script by using your natal (AKA birth) chart!

Anne describes her Beginning Astrology: Understanding Yourself and Others course as analogous to building the foundation of a house.  If the foundation of your house is secure (i.e., your basic understanding of astrology), then your house (i.e., your future studies of astrology) will stand strong for years to come.

By combining her knowledge of astrology, her background in psychology, and her love of teaching, Anne will guide you through a step-by-step process of interpreting your own natal chart.  You will not only build the foundation of your house, but will also gain amazing insights about yourself and information that will lead to greater self-acceptance and peace of mind.

Just a few of these possible discoveries include:

  • What are your life lessons?
  • Where in your life will luck and recognition most likely come from?
  • How do you prefer to communicate with others (and be communicated with)?
  • What qualities do you need in a work environment or in a significant other in order to be happy?
  • How do people view you (even if you aren’t aware of it or comfortable with it)?
  • What do you need to heal within yourself before you can help others?

Beginning Astrology Course Objectives

  • Review basic information about astrology (e.g., history, types of charts)
  • Learn how to read an astrological chart (e.g., houses, angles, degrees, minutes)
  • Discover the meanings of the 10 planets, 12 houses, and 12 astrological signs
  • Learn about hemispheres, elements, modalities, and polarities
  • Explore additional fun stuff, such as Chiron, the Nodes, and the Part of Fortune
  • Take a preliminary look at how to interpret a chart


What Is Included in the Beginning Astrology Course

  • An extensive 126-page Beginning Astrology: Understanding Yourself & Others manual presented in an easy-to-use workbook format
  • In-person instruction with time for questions
  • A copy of your natal (AKA birth) chart and other supportive print-outs
  • The opportunity to view an online video of each astrology class.  Each video will be available for 1 month following class meetings, and anyone who is registered for the course will be given access to it.  This is a wonderful opportunity for (a) those who were present at the class and would like to review some or all of the class content in order to “lock in the learning” and (b) for those who have to miss a class for any reason.

NOTE ABOUT VIDEOS:  The videos of each class meeting are ONLY provided for those who are enrolled in the course and either had to miss a class or would like to review what was covered.  Unfortunately, Anne’s courses are not yet set up for distance-learning opportunities.  You must be able to attend each class in person.  However, Anne does hope to convert many of her courses to online classes in the future.  Therefore, please be sure to join Anne’s Online Community so you can be informed when the online courses  become available.


Special Requirement of All Students Enrolled in Beginning Astrology Course

Learning astrological information is a cumulative process (i.e., understanding new information requires understanding previously presented information).  Therefore, if you enroll in this course, you will need to make a commitment to review the video of a missed class before attending the next class.  Time cannot and will not be spent in the next class getting you “caught up.”


How to Repeat the Beginning Astrology Course for a Reduced Fee

A limited number of seats in this course will be made available for those who have previously taken Anne’s multi-part Beginning Astrology: Understanding Yourself & Others course.  Contact Anne in order to determine if you are eligible for the reduced fee and to discuss payment options.


Money Back Guarantee

If you are not completely satisfied with the course, you can receive a full refund of your tuition.  However, in order to qualify, you must (a) request a refund before the 2nd class meeting and (b) return the workbook.
