How to Learn Astrology

Beginning Astrology: Understanding Yourself and Others

Instructor:  Anne Reith, Ph.D.




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

Anne describes her 10-part 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/birth chart.  You will not only build the foundation of your house, but you will also gain amazing insights about yourself. This 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, quadrants, elements, modalities, and polarities
  • Explore additional fun stuff, such as the asteroid Chiron, the Moon’s Nodes, and the Gauquelin sectors
  • Take a preliminary look at how to interpret a chart


What is included in the Beginning Astrology course

  • An extensive 270-page Beginning Astrology: Understanding Yourself & Others manual presented in an easy-to-use workbook format
  • Live instruction with time for questions (classes are offered as a Zoom webinar)
  • A copy of your natal chart (AKA birth chart) and other supportive print-outs
  • The opportunity to view recordings from each class.  Each class will be recorded, and each recording will be made available for the duration of the course and for an additional 2 months after the conclusion of the course. Only those registered for the course will be given access to the recordings.  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.


Distance learning opportunity

This course is being offered ONLINE as a Zoom webinar. Anyone is welcome to attend, regardless of your geographic area!

All class material will be provided in electronic form, including your manual/workbook and copies of your natal/birth chart.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The live instruction will occur between 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Pacific Time Zone (click here for time zone converter). Unfortunately, due to Anne’s teaching and writing schedule, questions will need to be asked during the live webinars. Questions cannot be asked in between class meetings (e.g., by email), unless it is to ask for clarification about a recently covered topic. The question will be addressed during the next live class. However, the videos and workbook typically provide more than enough information to understand the course content.


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 be spent in the next class getting you “caught up.”


How to repeat the Beginning Astrology course for a reduced fee

Here’s what students are saying about Dr. Anne’s Beginning Astrology course

“I highly recommend Anne Reith’s remarkably informative Beginning Astrology class. Anne’s approach to teaching this complex subject was very methodical and easy to digest. Once students had a strong understanding of the fundamentals, she then guided us in the exploration of our own natal charts. Anne provided a comprehensive manual, charts, and tools; and the recorded online classes allowed me to review content at my own time and rate. I am grateful for this class as it has provided me with a deeper understanding of my innate traits and clarified my relationships with others.  I’m excited to take the next Intermediate and Advanced classes!”  (D.S., Marina Del Rey, CA)      

“The content of Anne’s Beginning Astrology course was exceptionally detailed and thorough. The excellent examples in every session brought the content to life. I was especially grateful for all the reference material in the appendices. The tools Anne provided for analyzing charts really resonated with me.  The sample script that was provided is an incredible gift that showcases her years of experience and expertise.”  (L.P., Yorba Linda, CA) 

“As with every subject Anne teaches, she explained astrology in simple and easy to follow steps. Yet, her depth of knowledge about this subject is profound, and she does not teach it on a superficial, shallow level. What I like about Anne’s approach is that she looks at astrology and the interpretation of natal charts from the perspective of a psychologist, which gives the information deeper meaning. I enjoyed attending the live online classes, which allowed me to ask questions. It was also very helpful to learn how to find the Full and New Moons in my natal chart.  There is much more I could praise and have learned in Anne’s Beginning Astrology class. I greatly recommend it and cannot wait for her next Intermediate Astrology course.”  (P.D., Costa Mesa, CA) 

“I highly recommend Anne’s Beginning Astrology course.  Her manual and all class presentations are very easy to follow. Regardless if you are a beginner or an experienced astrologer, by the end of the course you will have learned a lot!” (M.P., Irvine, CA)
