Classes and Workshops

Learning astrology can be a life-changing experience. Not only does it involve discovering a new symbolic language but, being a whole cosmology in itself, it will profoundly shift the way you see life - inwardly and outwardly. There’s also the important benefit that, as learning will mostly be centred on your own horoscope, you gain a deeper understanding of who you are and how you tick.


I offer many teaching options, from short or longer courses those completely new to the craft, to on-going classes and workshops for more intermediate and advanced students. The list below is of my offerings for 2018.

My teaching background involves lecturing at the Centre for Psychological Astrology in London (2006-7), Diploma tutor for the international distance learning Mayo School of Astrology, and extensive private teaching over the past 15 years in the UK and New Zealand. I have also taught astrology in schools to year 8 children (age 13-14) and held classes for youth over the past 5 years.

Beginners Options

Universal Awakenings: a six week introduction to astrology

By popular demand I will be running another 6-week course to introduce complete beginners to the basic building blocks of astrology. This is done through an exploration of the most important themes of our daily lives, including love and partnership; career, vocation, and finances; family and community; and forecasting future trends. The teaching draws from your own birth chart, so you will be learning a new skill at the same time as deepening self-awareness.  The course will be taught in Kapiti on Mondays, starting 28th May 10am-12pm in Paekakariki. Cost: $195 ($180 if booked before 13th May)

Foundation Course - a year-long introduction to astrology

Last opportunity for new students to join! For those with a serious interest in learning this amazing craft, this is a full-year introduction to the fundamentals of astrology. You will come away from it with the knowledge and skills to read a horoscope; a deeper sense of who you are and how you tick: your strengths, patterns and challenges; what you might be here for, along with a whole new perspective on and understanding of life. This is such a great path towards self-knowledge.  Thursdays 7-9pm in Paekakariki, with term 2 (The Planets) starting 3rd May. Cost: $295 per 8-week term. Only 2 spaces left.

On-line Beginners Astrology

I am currently running an on-line astrology course for beginners. This is taught in modules covering the major components of the horoscope, enabling a good grasp of the astrological language and the beginning of interpretation. See here for more information and to make your booking.

Intermediate and advanced Options


Open to all - including keen beginners -  these one-off workshops are held mostly on weekends. They allow more time to explore a theme, a technique or a specific branch of astrology. This year I will be running the following:

Learn to calculate and draw up a horoscope all by yourself. This will be using planetary tables, doing all the calculations and then drawing up a clear and beautiful chart. Taught over two Saturday afternoons, 1-4pm, on the 22nd and 29th September 2014, the cost is $120 for both days.

I came to your Astrology class with little to no understanding, but with an enthusiastic attitude and an open mind. To my greatest joy you have a teaching skill that could keep me inspired to learn more. Each session was full of knowledge and the extent of your understanding and gift of communicating was thrilling. You hold such integrity with you role as an Astrology teacher, and offer your students great on-going support and encouragement. You have helped me open the door to my own path as an Astrologer, you helped me to believe in myself. I am very thankful to have had you as a well respected and professional teacher that could offer so much and with such skill.
