Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

Each Series:

  • $160 or two payments of $80 if you sign up before December 3

  • $200 or two payments of $100 during regular enrollment

Full Course:

  • $400 or 5 payments of $80 if you sign up before December 3*

  • $500 or 5 payments of $100 during regular enrollment** 

*$200 discount for signing up for the full course before December 3

**$100 discount for signing up for the full course during regular enrollment


Do I have to pay for the full course all at once?

No, you can pay in monthly installments, whether you are signing up for Series 1, Series 2, Series 3, or the whole course. If you sign up during the discount period, the charge will be $80 per month. If you sign up during regular enrollment, the charge will be $100/month.


When will I be charged if I’m using a payment plan?

You’ll be charged for the first payment when you purchase the course, and once a month after that. So if you are signing up for Series 1, that’s one payment in December and one in January. If you’re signing up for the full course, it’s a payment in December, January, February, March and April.

If you have signed up for two course Series, but not all three, it’s four payments. But heads up - you can pay the same amount and get all three Series if you sign up before December 3 for the full course, so that’s probably a better option!


What will I learn in this class?

You will learn the essentials for how to read your natal chart (also called the birth chart). You’ll learn how each of the planets’ energies work in your life, how the four major angles in your chart impact your life (Ascendant or “Rising” sign, Descendant, IC, and MC—don’t worry if you don’t know what those are yet!), and which houses are the most activated in your chart—basically, your specialty areas during this lifetime. You’ll also learn how to work with the tarot for insight into the themes that are unfolding . Our working title for this course was, “Astrology and Tarot for Personal Discovery”—we wanted to find a one-word title, but that still describes the idea. We want to give you the tools to understand and celebrate and work with your self and your gifts.

A few nerdy notes on the type of Astrology you’ll be learning, if you have a little more experience: we use whole sign houses in the course, and traditional sign rulers. A lot of modern astrology is based on the Placidus system and includes Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto as sign rulers, but we’re using the ancient system that only goes up to Saturn for sign rulers. It’s a lot easier to understand the way planetary energies work together using these systems, and it’s also the way I (Laura) read charts, but the whole sign system may change how you’re looking at your houses a little bit and how you understand the signs of the zodiac.

If all of that doesn’t mean anything to you, don’t worry! These are the things we’ll be learning about during the course.


What tarot deck will we use in the course?

You can bring any tarot deck to the course, and it will be usable for our work. We’ll most frequently reference the Smith-Waite (Rider-Waite) deck, but you should be able to work with any deck.
