The design and duration of this class is made to bring astrology into your daily experience of life, rather than just something ‘out there’ or something inaccessible. This course is an opportunity to be guided through the lush material of Evolutionary Astrology and to be given the tools to integrate this information as your own knowing. The course is designed for students to walk away empowered with a strong foundation for understanding astrology and their personal relationship to it.
This course will give you a new lens for looking at the world, through the perspective of the Soul. The Soul and the notion that it has a history of past lives can go from being an abstract concept to a direct, evident experience — and we’ll know how to read the natal map that tells us all about it!
You will be exposed to the foundational concepts of Evolutionary Astrology and have many opportunities to practice it in class, as well as to access individual support from me outside of class. In our time together, I’m going to share tons of tips, techniques and recommendations with you to help you become literate and proficient at Evolutionary Astrology! The course is also designed to empower you to be able to build upon it afterward in your self-study.
Cost of Immersion Course: $900 (by paying $150/month) or $750 if paid upfront
Enrollment deadline: October 8

So, what is Evolutionary Astrology?
Evolutionary Astrology is a paradigm of astrology that reveals the nature of the Soul and its ongoing evolution. The Soul is the being who continues to exist and reincarnates after this lifetime falls away, and the Soul has been here before. Reading a natal chart with the techniques Evolutionary Astrology holds allows one to get a comprehensive understanding of what the Soul has been up to in a series of prior lives. What has it been focused on? What are its patterns? What are its talents? What is unresolved? What is the cutting edge of evolution in this lifetime?
Why should I invest in learning about this paradigm of astrology?
Evolutionary Astrology unlocks keys to understanding the history and story of the Soul. On an inner-level, you gain access to becoming acquainted with the deeper version of yourself – the being who goes beyond the avatar that your current incarnation/ego is. It offers incredibly detailed context for why this current incarnation and ego is relevant to the Soul, and why you as a Soul vibrated with this life in particular. This is such liberating knowledge! A practiced Evolutionary Astrologer can deliver this information to you in a reading, but if you would like the tools to make this an ongoing quest of self-discovery to which you can do your own research, build your own body of knowledge, and form your own interpretations, this course can empower you to do just that. This course will show you how to read the astrological map, which is like giving your Soul’s consciousness flight.
Is this just navel-gazing though? What is the real use of knowing soul-focused astrology?
Patterns that are rooted in the Soul are deeply-grooved and continue to recreate themselves in different forms. A certain awareness of what is happening — what exactly the pattern is — offers a moment where transformation can occur. This body of astrology is a way to lucidly access this knowledge so that transformation is an option where there wasn’t that option in sight yesterday. This is a gift you can give to yourself and to your clients.
What is the Evolutionary Astrology technique, and will I be able to learn it?
Evolutionary Astrology utilizes, on a technical level, an analysis of the placement of Pluto, the lunar nodes, and the planetary rulers of the lunar nodes, to tune into this Soul-level interpretation of the natal chart. Whether you know what I’m talking about here because you’re a seasoned student or practicer of astrology, or that’s all a foreign language because you don’t know anything about astrology — you’ll walk away from this course knowing how to form this depth of interpretation. I’ll actually guide you through it and provide plenty of opportunities for practice. In class, you’ll be able to sit back and soak it all in and jump in and participate at will. Outside of class, I’ll be available to answer your questions and provide personalized support.
I find the thought of soul-inquiry intimidating. Why would I want to know about my Soul, and how would I even integrate this kind of information to my daily life?
Evolutionary Astrology is a Pluto-based astrology, and Pluto is the planet of transformation! This kind of knowledge can make life more vivid and also help us know how to direct our energy – we become more aware of who we are and what we deeply value. By nature, the Soul is interested in this life – it exists here and is bonded to things, like the body. The Soul forms deep (however temporary) attachments whether we do so consciously or not. Becoming lucidly aware of the Soul and how it operates is a way to form conscious intimacy with life, where we previously were ruled by the subconscious. Something I found liberating about this body of knowledge was the empowerment it gave me to invest in life and in my interests – that Soul matters. I felt more secure in my direction. The integration of Soul-awareness is just living in a way where the Soul is guiding you, and becoming more aware of the ways that Soul had been projected (misplaced) onto other things before.
Take this course if you are interested in personal transformation, and know that you’ll get out of it what you put into it and more. Yes, this is potent material, and it is material that is empowering in nature.
Who is this class for?
This class is accessible at multiple starting points — from total beginners to astrology to seasoned astrologers who want to learn more about the Evolutionary Astrology perspective. This is a class for people who want to expand their thinking. Specifically you will be learning a lot about the Soul and how the Soul speaks and operates in our experience, which is a layer of reality often left to the esoteric and mystical sidelines. (Hence why it can seem intimidating.) So how do we know how to talk about the Soul, how to know Soul? This is a class for people who are interested in that question. And this is a class for people who want the tools to interpret an astrological chart (including their own) from the perspective of the Soul’s ongoing evolution: to really take on the “why am I here?” question. What have I been developing in prior lives, and what am I still refining? What are my gifts? My adversities? What fundamentally compels and motivates me? Why has my soul chosen this ego, this incarnation, as an avatar for its development? The classroom environment will support multiple levels of participation, so if you are wanting to soak in these ideas quietly, you are as free to do that as if you want to jump right in and ask questions during class or participate in the volunteer example chart analyses. I’ll encourage you and help you learn these concepts, and I won’t put you on the spot.
Additionally this class is for people who are interested in astrology already but want to take it deeper. One, they want to take their understanding of the concepts they already know deeper – beyond the personality layer and into the spiritual, soul layers. Second, they want to take their commitment and understanding deeper – by showing up to class weekly for this period of 5 months, not only does the Soul take note… but so do the exterior mirrors of Soul – the planets. When you study astrology, you actually form relationships to the cosmos! This is a class for people who want to develop a meaningful relationship with the cosmos and the part of themselves who knows there is something more to life.
What format is this class?
We will meet over Zoom video conferences (zoom.us) on Sundays for three hours most weeks and four on others (see the class schedule on the syllabus here). This takes place over the course of five months. I have lecture content to share, but will also make space for interaction, question, and practice with natal charts of students who are present in the room (and volunteer their charts)! We’ll be looking at the charts of outside volunteers as well. In between the scheduled class hours, students are free to email me with questions and will have access to my personalized support. There will also be a private Facebook group for the students to post questions and reflections. I will be posting discussion questions and practice questions in this Facebook group and will respond there as well. In addition to forming connections with other students, you will have opportunities outside of class to continue your learning with the support of me as your teacher.
What is being covered in the curriculum?
See a syllabus here. We will be covering the cosmology associated with Evolutionary Astrology (what it says about the Soul and the reason for reincarnation), the evolutionary meanings of the twelve zodiac archetypes and houses, the meanings of the planets and the areas of life they represent, the aspects (angles that planets make to one another), and the evolutionary chart interpretation model which resources a synthesis of Pluto and the lunar nodes to draw a portrait of a person’s ongoing Soul evolution. The entire course I will be guiding you through a technical understanding of how to read the natal chart map, and we will be putting these concepts into practice and applying them each class.
Do I have to believe in the cosmology piece of this to study Evolutionary Astrology?
No. As an example, I’ve come to believe (and it is my observed experience) that themes from people’s past lives are recreated in their early life. So while a soul-based astrologer might come up with one story for where a person’s complexes and gifts are rooted (in the deep past, patterns of past lives, specific traumas or events from past lives), a traditional psychotherapist might locate the source of those same complexes and gifts in the person’s childhood (via the parental environment, specific or ongoing early life traumas, etc). You could literally look at it either way. In my opinion, the childhood is just a fractal of the soul’s history (so both are true). The themes of the Soul and the history of the Soul are rich fodder for thought and whether you take them literally or metaphorically, you’ll find it enriching! And since the Soul is not a taught landscape in most schooling, it’s not that often you get to apply a nuanced examination of it. Studying Evolutionary Astrology is a chance to do that.
What’s the benefit of studying astrology with a teacher in a structured learning environment, as opposed to self-study?
Many astrologers learn by self-study. It just takes a lot of time and can feel very isolating. When you study by yourself, if you come up against a wall there’s no one to help you over that wall and you might not even know the question you’re meaning to ask. A teacher can help narrow in on what the source of confusion is and offer an adjustment. The relationship formed between a teacher and student is also a motivating, supportive factor in learning. You’ll advance faster by studying with a teacher.
What kind of commitment or participation is expected of me as a student?
There are multiple entry-levels of participation for this course. Some students may choose to access the recording of classes afterward. I encourage you to show up for class and take part in the presence of class unfolding, where you can ask questions but also energetically commit to being part of the learning environment. Classes are recorded for convenience if anyone has to miss a class or if there are difficulties with time zone difference. Like many things in life, you will get out of this class what you put into it. Being part of the classroom environment and utilizing the expertise a teacher can offer you by staying engaged and asking questions is a way to make the most of this. The access that students will have to me for questions and personalized support outside of class is within the duration of this five-month period. I would say jump in!
You’ll find here the infrastructure, support and attention to boost your engagement with astrology.
If I’m in a timezone or schedule that conflicts too much with this course and I have to catch up on classes on my own time, how can I still energetically commit to being part of the learning environment?
Watch the videos in the same week that they are sent to you so that you stay up-to-date with the material, and utilize the private class group on Facebook for discussion. I will be posting discussion questions and practice questions for anyone who wants to participate, and I encourage you to!
What does personal support outside of class look like?
Personal support outside of class involves meeting you where you are at specifically in your process of learning Evolutionary Astrology. That means taking time to answer your questions over email or setting up time to meet over office hours. I’m excited to teach this practice that I love so deeply and want to support your success!
Sabrina, what is something you like about yourself as a teacher?
I am often told I am very present with people. As a way of being throughout the day and my interactions, I resonate with this – I am present with people. When it comes to the sharing of ideas and being in a learning environment, this presence lends itself to being able to transmit ideas. I am going to check in with you, to see if you get something or not. I’m able to tune into where you are at with learning astrology, and I can help guide you toward expansion. I love astrology and I love what studying it has done to my state of emotional, spiritual wellbeing. I’m excited to share it with you and love seeing learning and progress in the people I work with!
I already know a lot about astrology. What will I gain from this course?
It’s great to bring background to this class. In this course specifically, you’ll get to reimagine astrology through the lens of Pluto or, the Soul. The deeper underlying meanings of the archetypes are explored. And you’ll gain technique for analyzing the chart through an angle you may not be familiar with. If you already are familiar with Evolutionary Astrology, what you’ll gain from this beyond additional perspective you pick up, is sheer practice. On the energetic level, your time and space spent on astrology will simply make you a better astrologer, inherently and also for your clients.
I know nothing about astrology. Am I prepared for this course?
This course is designed to give you fundamentals – which we then will explore at depth – so there are multiple entry points in terms of knowledge levels. The information we cover will not be abstract, because the archetypes (Aries, Taurus, etc.) are all things that can be found and mapped in our direct life experience. You don’t have to know about Capricorn, to have had many Capricorn experiences and therefore a rich tapestry of experience to already be able to relate to the astrology of Capricorn. You’ll just be learning the map. (It goes the other way as well, that when we learn a new archetype or greater depth of an archetype we already know, we also gain the ability to experience more. We’ll learn more about this in the Gemini/Sagittarius section by the way!) As we go through the course material, concepts will build upon one another. You’ll pick up a lot from your fellow students, as well! Social learning environments are great for astrology.
Can I pay in installments rather than all upfront?
Yes. You can pay in 6 monthly automatic payments of $150.
