This year has already been full of several major projects for me, and one that I am especially eager to share with you has just been launched: my first online introductory course to the practice of archetypal astrology. The course is offered through the Academy of Oracle Arts, a Nevada City-based center for higher and deeper learning. In many ways this course is a culmination of more than a decade of astrological learning and practice, and it is my joy and honor to be able to present it to you.
As I was writing the lectures, I came to recognize how much the course itself is an homage to my father Richard Tarnas, who has been my greatest teacher in this work. I chose to build the course around his foundational text Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View, giving a new generation of students the opportunity to explore deeply the book that was being written throughout my entire childhood.
The course launches on May 1, and each of the six modules of the course will be released weekly over the next month and a half, and will be available in perpetuity. This is an evergreen course, meaning it will be available for students to enroll in at any time, and to study the material at one’s own pace. You will be able to return to the lectures again and again so they can support you in developing your own engaged astrological practice.

Archetypal astrology is a discipline that emerges from the interweaving of the astrological tradition with depth psychology and transpersonal spirituality. This introductory course lays the foundations for an astrological practice, beginning with an examination of world views and the history of the archetypal perspective, followed by a study of the basic principles and techniques of archetypal astrology: the meanings of the planets, aspects, and zodiacal signs, how to read a natal chart and explore the world transits, and how to calculate personal transits and keep a transit journal. Participants in the course will be given the tools for their own ethical astrological practice, cultivating the capacity for deep inner reflection, relational understanding and growth, and an archetypal perception of the cosmos in which we are all embedded.

I like your article very well. You have worked hard.
Hello! I’ve signed up for the course, and it says that it was to have begun 4/22, but I can’t seem to locate the material or see myself as a registrant. Can you help? Very much looking forward to the course, if I can figure out how to get there!

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for registering for the course! The course actually begins on May 1, so you will receive the first class this Saturday.
I am very sorry to bother you but I have signed up for the course and still haven’t received the first class. I hope this isn’t an issue with my account. I cannot get in touch with Academy of Oracle Arts for this. I hope I can receive it soon since I am very excited for your course.
I’ve spoken with the administrators at AOA and they should have sorted out your account. Please let us know if you continue not to have access!
Dear Becca, is there a way to access the recording to your course. Do you plan a other edition? I would be very interested to join
Thank you for your interest! This course is an “evergreen” so you can sign up for it anytime!
