Self-paced Astrology Lessons
This book combines all the astrology lessons I have taught for the past twenty-five years to my private students.
Each chapter is one lesson.
Typically when I teach the lessons in a classroom they take about two hours to complete.
However some classes are a little longer specifically the Houses lesson and the Synasty lesson.
I usually have a week to a fortnight between classes so my students can digest the information, practice on many charts and do some more research by themselves.
Table of Contents
Evolution of This Book
When I began teaching astrology to three women one Saturday afternoon at my kitchen table, I wrote out a one-page guide for each lesson.
Every person received the one-page class note.
They went away and returned the following week for the next class at which time I provided the second lesson one-page class note.
Over time, I developed each one-page into multiple sheets and included more information.
I increased the page count for each lesson to about ten pages whilst fleshing out every topic into broader paragraphs which became the discussion points in the lesson.
By now I had made sixteen beginner, intermediate and advanced forecasting classes with around ten individual pages each for the forty-eight classes with a total page count of 480.
Then I created a mini eBook for each stage.
Later when I began to teach the Relationship and Vocational astrology courses with six classes each, I wrote more class notes.
Only earlier this year did it occur to me to bring everything together into one book.
In the past I had toyed with multiple smaller books but decided to amalgamate all the class notes I had created over the years into this one volume.
Through the editing process, I condensed the Houses lessons into one class even though I had taught it over two.
I had forty-seven main classes including six Relationship and six Vocational classes, with around ten pages per class.
This brought the class count to fifty-nine. I wanted to have fifty-two classes which is of course one class for every week in the year.
I compressed the two Relationship and Vocational courses into five classes, three for Relationships (thus the Synastry class has parts 1, 2 and 3 and is the biggest class) and two for Vocational.
Now I had fifty-two classes in total.
Some classes are longer and some are shorter than others.
Each page is sourced from my early one-page layouts.
Each page usually has a main heading and several paragraphs, diagrams, tables or charts.
These are all discussion points and can be explored further by the student and certainly developed by the teacher.
I encourage you to source other supporting material around each class.
I have endeavored to keep the style of the page layout similar to the original one-page class notes as that is how you learn the subject and how it is taught.
Where there is space available on some pages, I have added diagrams or illustrations as inspiration.
Most drawings are my own creations however some are free images for public use from Pixabay.
How to Use This Book
This is a working book. You are invited to write in it, make notes and draw diagrams as you learn.
Perhaps you have other keywords you want to bring into your astrological practice and you may add them to these pages.
Color things in, add collage and make it your own.
Aspiring Astrologer Activities
There are Aspiring Astrology Activities after each chapter.
This is your class homework and the activities are about the content you have learnt in the lesson.
These activities are important as they are a guide about what to do for every chart that you ever cast or interpret.
This book teaches western tropical psychological astrology and mainly Placidus house cusps.
Where to Get Your Copy
The Aspiring Astrologer – 52 Self-paced Astrology Lessons book is available at Amazon.
This is quite a huge book with 570 pages and measures 8” by 10” or 20cm by 25cm.
The size makes it heavy.
The actual publication costs at Amazon are quite hefty themselves and of course you will have to add on the shipping to your area.
This makes the cost of the book slightly more than most astrology books but it’s due to the sheer volume of information you receive.

Typos and Errors
I wrote, designed, formatted and self-published this book myself.
I have had two editors go over it, but as I’ve learned in the past, errors do creep in.
If you find an error or typo, please let me know and I will fix it for the next person.
