Enraptured engagement. Magical mystery. Walking a mystical path with practical feet.
This is what embodied astrological understanding can provide you. I wanna help you get there. Not to become an astrologer yourself, per say – not everyone has time for that. But understanding how to work with your own chart? Heck yes. Let’s do it.
Becoming Your Own Astrologer: The One-On-One Course (syllabus below)
This format follows the course outline for my Becoming Your Own Astrologer group class. Ideally, meetings happen twice a month over the course of 3 months in 60 minute sessions. But it’s really something that can be done at whatever pace works best for you.
Cost when paid up front: $450
Cost when paid by the class (payment due 24 hours before the session): $75/session
(I offer this class in a group setting 1-2 times per year. Email me to be added to my mailing list and learn about dates)
*It is strongly recommended that you have a natal chart reading with me prior to beginning this process to give us both a baseline of your chart and our dynamic working together. Discounts are available if you have not had one with me already.

Becoming your own Astrologer: A Course in Experiential Astrology with Amanda Moreno
This 6-week class will help you to understand how to work with your own natal chart as a living blueprint and map. The approach will be experiential; we will use lecture, guided visualizations, imagery, scents, stones, storytelling, writing exercises and many other tools to help you get an embodied, well-informed grasp of the dynamics of your own chart. In my experience, learning my own chart has been the most important step on the path to becoming an astrologer.
My astrological approach combines Evolutionary Astrology (in the styles of both Jeffrey Green and Steven Forrest) and Archetypal Astrology (as informed by the work of Richard Tarnas, James Hillman and C.G. Jung) along with my training in depth psychology. In this class I will teach you the nuts and bolts of astrology as it pertains to your own chart and life, as informed by those teachers. But we’ll also take the bigger picture into consideration, exploring topics of cosmology, philosophy, relationship styles, the question of soul, and on and on…
This class is geared towards people who have beginning to intermediate level astrological knowledge and specifically those who are wanting to use astrology as a tool for self-growth and increased embodiment and awareness. The focus will be on experiential learning, which means you will be asked to do a lot of reflecting and questioning in order to find your own answers. The goal will be to get you started so that you can keep using your chart as a tool for increased awareness for the rest of your life.
I recommend you have a one-on-one reading with an astrologer before the class starts just to give you some initial exposure to your own astrological themes and dynamics. If you have not had one and would like to do so with me, I can offer up to a 15% discount off of a natal reading or natal + transits reading. Just email me to set up an appointment.
I do have a basic structure and plans outlined, but the class content will also be determined by the participants, so please allow for some flexibility.
