If you are ready to become a certified astrologer, gain a fuller understanding of astrology to live in alignment with your astrological blueprint, and create a thriving career that aligns with your soul’s purpose, then this course is for you.
Learn the history of astrology and its modern applications collide in this module as you learn to skillfully navigate the past and apply it to the present.
Learn to plot your natal chart! All those symbols you see on the chart? Learn what each of these means, and gain insight into the mystery of astrology.
Discover the big three of the natal chart: The Sun, The Moon, and The Rising Sign. These have the most profound effect on us as individuals. Unlocking their energetic expression shows us how to create more balance and harmony in our life.
The twelve signs of the zodiac give us the lens through which we look at life. Knowing the energetic imprints of these divine dozen show us different facets of ourselves, leading us to greater awareness of how to live on the “high side” of life
The nine planets (yes, dammit, Pluto is a planet!) represent core elements of our being. These “wanderers” hold the key to knowing our deepest urges, drives, and destiny. Discover where your blind spots are and how to turn weaknesses into strengths!
The twelve houses are the fields of consciousness, or life expression. Like the journey of the hero, each of us seeks balance and completeness in every house in order to walk the path of the mystic. Of course, on the way, there are bumps in the road. Looking at the twelve houses gives you insight as to how to smooth those bumps out and recognize how to thrive with the energy of the stars behind you
It is one thing to know thyself through astrology, and a whole other thing to use this knowledge to improve all our relationships. Astrology is perhaps the best tool available for immediate insight into how to create synchronicity and connection with others, as well as how to soften your karma (avoid those sharp edges!) around business, finances, health and spirituality
We rely on the power of the stars to give us the wisdom we need to inspire ourselves and others to follow our life’s purpose, but how do we turn that into a thriving lifestyle and career? This module provides you with insider tips and tools of the trade to build your community and business as a professional astrologer, including: leveraging social media, scheduling tools, the power of personal emails, as well as essential techniques including relationship and predictive astrology to add more tools to your astrological toolkit.
Additional video bonus lectures that give you answers to questions you haven’t even thought of yet
Private online community to connect with others on the course and collaborate about chart readings and all things astrology. Plus regular office hours and live-chats with Alanna to get your questions answered.
Interactive course workbook that allows you to take notes and share with others right from inside the course.
“Alchemical Astrology is the ultimate experience! This course is clear, concise, easy to follow and layers information in a logical way that continues to reinforce the previous lesson. The one-on-one attention given by Alanna is unparalleled. I’ve learned a tremendous amount about my own self and inner landscape and about how to help others interpret theirs as well! This course gets 5 huge AstroStars!”Sara M.
Often referred to as the Yoga Doctor, I help yoga teachers embody their knowledge, up-level their skills and create more impact in the world. I give you clear pathways to earning a living with your spiritual practice and help others with your gift.
I know how difficult it is to set yourself apart and thrive as a yoga instructor, so I want to teach you to be more than that…to be a spiritual advisor, healer, and master of the stars. As a #modernmystic, we are the torchbearers of spirituality for modern people; we are the guides that provide our students access to yoga’s enduring power as a healing and enlightening tool.
On this principle I founded The Kaivalya Yoga Method®, a fresh take on yoga emphasizing the individual path while honoring tradition. Teaching students since 2001, teachers since 2003, I’ve written and developed teacher trainings worldwide for top studios and independently. In 2015, I launched the world's first 500-hour online yoga teacher training.
I hold a Ph.D. in Mythological Studies with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, have authored numerous articles and three books: Myths of the Asanas, an accessible practitioner’s guide to stories behind beloved poses; Sacred Sound, a yoga “hymnal,” illustrating the role of chant and mantra in modern practice. My third book, Yoga Beyond the Mat, is a guidebook showing practitioners how to make yoga their spiritual practice. I live in New York City with Roxy the Wonderdog.
“I have been an avid reader of astrological blog posts and articles for many years. I’ve always been fascinated by the synchronicities between the events in my life and the movement and aspects of the planets as described by the writers of these articles. However, the complicated language, and the many moving parts such as the planets, houses, and zodiac have always been very intimidating and overwhelming to me.This 8-week course on astrology gave me a whole new perspective. I am able to understand the language, the concepts of houses, planets and the zodiac, as well as the relationships between these concepts. Instead of feeling overwhelmed when I look at my natal chart, or when I read the blog posts, I feel intrigued and able to understand the writings in a whole new way. This course was jam-packed with information, yet relayed in such a way that the concepts could easily be absorbed and digested. I am so glad that I committed to these 8 weeks, delving into the stars and their relationship to me and to my world.I highly recommend this to any layman or student of astrology, interested in the wisdom of the stars. You will not regret the time (or money) investment!You will come out of it knowing yourself more intimately, and thus be able to relate to the world and others around you in a much more conscious way. Thank you Alanna!”Danél L.
Yes! In fact, with only 10 paying clients**, you earn back what you invest in this course. This course pays for itself! The last module is a professional development module that helps you develop a thriving astrology business.
**If you charge the recommended $100 per natal chart reading.
Yes, you absolutely will be able to look at anyone’s chart and offer them a professional astrology reading based off of what you learn in this course. The information I provide gives you insight into how to read natal charts, as well as relationship charts, and predictive charts.
Most people start with their own, and I recommend you do this, too. There is nothing like using yourself as your own “test subject” with the material to see how this works and how true it is. It gives you confidence to then look at other people’s charts and see what is going on with them. We will discuss good ways to share your insights with others, and how to elevate your relationships through knowing what someone else’s blueprint looks like.
This course is a perfect stepping stone to going from understanding your own chart to becoming a professional astrologer and enlightening others by sharing the workings of their chart with them!
This course is right for anyone who has had a curiosity to explore astrology and/or become an astrologer! If you’ve dabbled, read daily horoscopes (we’ll talk about how inaccurate those are!), have purchased a few books, and still feel like you’re swimming in unfamiliar waters, this course is absolutely for you.Even if you’ve only just started asking people, “What’s your sign?” this course gives you a step-by-step initiation into the world of astrology. Alternatively, if you’re an old hat at astrology, this course benefits you by giving you another perspective on the model. My background includes mythology, alchemy, depth psychology and yoga. I integrate all these into my understanding of astrology to develop a complete, integrative approach that empowers people to say “Yes!” to all that the stars have in store for them.
Yes! Successful completion of this course requires that you do 100% of the coursework, submit all workbooks and pass a final exam: a 1/2 hour astrology reading for the instructor. Upon completing the course, you will receive a certificate. Students who finish this course have gone on to work as successful astrologers!

It really is up to you! If you plan to keep up with the group for the 8-week program, then it’s a good idea to commit 5-7 hours per week to the course.

Remember, once you purchase the course, you have access to the course materials forever. Don’t worry if you fall a little behind.

Indeed! I’m excited about this method of delivery because it allows us to go through the course together. On the first day of the course, you get access to Module #1, and then over the course of eight weeks, you’ll receive the next modules. Once the next modules are unlocked, you have access to all the previous modules, too. No worries if you fall behind, or need to go at your own pace, this system allows you to do that, too.
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.
