For many of us, studying astrology is a scattered and solitary pursuit. This spring, the Astrological Society of Austin is providing a comprehensive course to equip a community of budding astrologers with the tools to share wisdom and inspiration with the world.
By the end of our two months together, you should expect to:
-Speak the basic language of astrology—words, phrases, sentences, and whole stories.
-Use basic astrology software to cast charts and surf the sky tides.
-Read charts with confidence, diagnosing and remedying difficulties and amplify strong suits.
-Appreciate the philosophical and spiritual tradition of astrology
-Develop a much closer relationship with the night sky, the planets, stars, sun and moon.
This Immersion will include:
-6 weekly classroom sessions, a stargazing session and a chart-reading clinic, which will be open to the public.
-Weekly prompts, readings and practices to explore the mysteries of astrology and bring alive its core concepts.
-Weekly, online office hours and a guided, online forum to explore curiosities and share observations.

Charlie Cross is a consulting astrologer, teacher, and writer. Charlie has been studying astrology intensely since an initiatory wound opened Charlie up to the spiritual world 7 years ago, just in time to catch the magic of 2012. Constantly doing readings, teaching and creating with astrology, Charlie has studied Evolutionary Astrology with Adam Sommer and Ari Moshe, but he has always been an autodidact. These days he is drawn to Tropical Vedic Astrology, the Fixed Stars and Lunar Mansions, Shamanic Astrology and Planetary Magic, as well as medical and financial astrology. In addition to working as an astrologer, Charlie teaches in the Waldorf Movement, where he gets to witness in action the spiritual teachings of Rudolf Steiner, a mystic and progenitor of many spiritual technologies (as well as brilliant astrological thinker). Charlie also facilitates the Moon Language Story Circle, a roving full-moon circle with astrologically-chosen themes. Learn more at astrologyally.org.
