STRUGGLING TO FIGURE OUT WHERE TO START WITH ASTROLOGY?

Does it feel sometimes like the entire Internet knows astrology – except for you?

Learning astrology online can be hard.

Most astrology websites and Facebook groups assume that you know the basics. Trying to learn astrology as a beginner  can be confusing and can result in countless lost hours as you try to piece everything together enough knowledge to make a start. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to lock down the foundations of astrology all in one go?

The great news is you can. The Introduction To Astrology course will guide you through the core elements of astrology. Are you are taking those first steps toward self discovery? Or wanting to expand your service range as a tarot reader or health practitioner? Have you set a goal to learn bigger and better forms such as predictive, relationship or even soul-centered astrology? If your answer is yes to any of these questions then the Introduction To Astrology course was made for you.

WHAT THE INTRODUCTION TO ASTROLOGY COURSE OFFERS

Learn astrology with confidence – topic by topic. Discover the core elements needed to learn astrology by focusing on the key components one by one. Each topic is broken down and explained and in later sections we combine what we’ve learned.

This course features more than three hours of high quality video. No shaky or dim mobile phone recordings or boring hours of watching a stranger talk.

Your knowledge is challenged as you go with quizzes and instructor marked assignments that test you as you complete each section. You’ll know when you’re ready to move on to new content.

It’s designed to cater to different learning styles with downloadable learning aids and a beautiful course book to help you build your knowledge if you’re more a reader than a watcher.

COURSE OVERVIEW

Astrology is a broad topic with an array of specializations and schools of thought. The Introduction To Astrology course won’t focus on history, mythology or the biases of particular Astrology forms. The goal of this course is to build up your Astrology literacy to a point where you can begin practical interpretation and join the modern dialogue on this fascinating topic.

This course will ground you in the fundamentals – the core elements that are present in most forms of western Astrology. It will also give you the knowledge and tools to begin your journey into interpretive natal Astrology.

Upon course completion, you’ll be able to:

  • Develop a working and practical understanding of the core fundamentals needed to learn Astrology, including the 12 signs, the houses, the planets and aspects
  • Create and interpret a natal Astrology birth chart using the “Big 3” (Sun, Moon and Ascendant), the houses, planets and aspects and how to “score up the weighting” of a natal chart by elements and modalities
  • Gain insight into personality traits
  • Look for and interpret specific criteria from a chart including career, romance, health etc
  • Understand and participate in Astrology conversations and discussions – both in the real world and social media
  • Have enough of an understanding of Astrology to make educated choices about where to focus to develop your own knowledge or specialized interest in Astrology, including predictive (transits & progressions), relationships (synastry), soul-centered (esoteric/karmic) and divination (horary).

COURSE STRUCTURE

Effort has been made to cater to different learning styles and to anchor what you’re learning as you progress. Strong audio/visual content is supported with printable content such as flash cards, catering to audio, visual and kinesthetic learning styles. Exams will be included throughout this course as a tool to challenge the knowledge you’re building as you progress so you can learn astrology in a style you’re comfortable with.

A section is included that will show you how to generate and print your own natal Astrology chart using web resources, and will introduce you to some of the best apps and software available on today’s market.

Months of work and considerable resources have gone into providing a course that will give you a solid, practical mastery of the basics of Astrology and it’s my sincere wish that this course ignites the passion in you to travel further down the rabbit hole and forward into the next age of this timeless art.

I was hesitant to take an astrology course as there's so many different teachers and ways to properly interpret a chart out there, but this one went above and beyond my expectations. Simple yet somehow still very thorough AND we get a bunch of printables so we can study easier. Straight to the point on everything and the assignments helped more than I thought they would. I'm the type of learner that takes notes on everything in order to fully absorb the info and the entire course is set up in a way that makes it easy to pause if you need to with short intervals. Everything is explained in a way that's incredibly easy to understand. I also have a habit of getting bored by the teacher, or they teach in a way that's difficult to grasp. This is the 1st online course that kept me magnetized enough to *fully* complete. Thanks very much Mr. McKinnon, I look forward to taking your other courses in the near future!

As I continue to adventure into these courses, I very much value this one. Its got very specific detail for each sign, how they correlate to houses. The videos are created simply so you can capture and retain information. Assignments are challenging to ensure you are retaining information you can use in the real world. Damian McKinnon does give you real feedback on assignments to allow you to grow or push yourself. I'm very happy I landed here!

The course was very thorough. It works with "building blocks". I enjoyed learning, but am grateful that I'll have access to the materials beyond the class. I know I will be referring back to it often. The resource materials and flashcards will be great tools to refer on as well.

Don't believe the few negative reviews! This course is exceptional. It was exactly what I was looking for as someone who has been studying astrology for a long time, but didn't have much formal training. The resources alone are worth the cost. It is incredibly thorough and the delivery as short, vivid videos makes it easy to digest. It has taken me a long time to complete simply because I was taking notes and diving deeply into the content. I'm glad I found this and I am grateful for the flash cards and other tools that will help strengthen my astrology skills. Thank you!

I am still overwhelmed in a very positive way! I was not expecting this load of information. Had to stop multiple times and literally live by my notes and get everything jotted. It is very precise and insightful. It pairs theory with practical examples, which makes learning way more effective and quick. Still feel I need to go over and over some sections just because I was not having any previous knowledge. I am confident this will provide me solid foundations to progress further and eventually get to understand how to read for others and see what's coming in more detail. I also really valued the huge effort on graphics (not all teachers do) and the content per se. I was amazed by the quality, consistency and professionalism across the video lessons and the manuals. The voice-over is steady, fascinating...no noises on the background therefore understandable and refined!

I really enjoyed this course! The course material was laid out in a very concise and understandable way, while the curriculum also was relatable and very easy to understand. I also liked that the instructor required students to engage with the material via interactive assignments. This really helps to make the information stick in your mind because you are called to apply it within the parameters that it is presented. I found that along with learning new concepts, my existing knowledge was also affirmed. This course made it easy for me to understand my own natal chart, thus helping me to answer some life long questions. My interactions with the instructor directly have also been very positive, I look forward to taking more courses from him in the future and am excited to open this new chapter in my learning. If you are interested in astrology for either personal or professional reasons, you definitely owe it to yourself to take this course!

It is an excellent course to get introduced clearly into astrology principles. There are many examples, and it touches many aspects that are well put together at the end. The support material, exercises and communication with the facilitator were excellent.

I've gone through Sections 1 & 2 so far but felt compelled to leave my first Udemy review. Damian is an exceptional teacher, did a phenomenal job with the video edits, and explains things very well. I wanted to understand some basic astrology and he is delivering that in spades. This is a fantastic course.
