Do you love following astrology blogs and learning about other people’s placements? Are you mystified by charts when you see them? Are you struggling to move beyond a dependency on other people or websites to interpret what’s going on in the sky? Can you faithfully recite the planetary associations without a real understanding of why, say, Venus rules love and money?

This 16-week beginner’s astrology course will ground you in a deep, holistic understanding of the astrological archetypes, as well as give you the skills and the confidence to read a chart.

This won’t require a major time commitment, either. I’ll send easily digestible, weekly lessons to your inbox that you can absorb on your own time. Your “homework” will include journaling, doing practice charts, and participating in group discussions — as much or as little as you have time for.


In four months, you’ll walk away with:

  • A clear understanding of the signs, planets, and houses that goes beyond the “what,” but also explains “why” and “how” the archetypes work
  • The ability to integrate the archetypes into a holistic understanding of the astrological cycle (including moon cycles, aspects, modalities, house systems, rulerships and dignities, and more)
  • The ability to confidently read a chart — as well as drown out the white noise and read for what you actually want to know
  • A deeper understanding of your natal aspects (and the natal aspects of your favorite people)
  • The ability to understand the cosmic weather (including retrogrades, planetary returns, and eclipses) and predict the major themes of your own upcoming transits
  • Knowledge of the common misconceptions people frequently have about astrology (and mistakes you may or may not currently be making)
  • A philosophical understanding of how to think about and use astrology to improve your life 


My main goal for this course is to coax you out of the well-worn, habituated grooves of your thinking about astrology and rid you of some of the “bad habits” you may have picked up along the way. If you’ve been trying to teach yourself astrology but still can’t fully grasp the concepts you’re reading about online, then this course is for you.


Included with your tuition:
  • Course material that you can download and save for future reference
  • Access to a Facebook group (or other forum, if enough people vote otherwise) where you can solidify your understanding through frequent discussions
  • A safe, supportive environment where you can ask questions about your own astrology in order to deepen your knowledge through what you’ve personally experienced
  • Lots of one-on-one attention from me, as well as community support from your classmates
  • Creative exercises that are designed to change the way you think about astrology

Thank you Steph for such a perfectly elaborated intro-class into the depths of applied astrology! I had lots of fun and feel very confident about continuing my studies and adding more layers to my knowledge. I‘ll always return to the solid foundation that we built together. – Laura

I really loved taking the beginners astrology course with Steph. I have been interested in astrology for years and watched many Youtube videos from astrologers and read various blog posts, but it has helped immensely to get the basic knowledge from the ground up so I can fully begin to understand and put the different pieces of knowledge together. Steph’s writing style is so clear and relatable, and she gives really helpful and encouraging feedback. I definitely recommend this course for anyone with an interest in astrology. — Romana

If you’re newly interested in astrology or even if you already have a ton of knowledge but still need help synthesizing all of those astrological components then you honestly can’t go wrong taking this class! Steph is super friendly and easy to approach and learn from. Her astrological insight is totally spot on! At times in the class, her responses to my assignments, I (jokingly) felt like I should have been paying her extra for her feedback and advice. As for me, I knew the basics about astrology already. I took this class hoping that I’d get more clarity and confidence in chart interpretation and in synthesizing the chart, and this class gave me exactly what I was looking for! I learned a handful that I wasn’t even aware of as well, and that was definitely a game changer in my comfort in looking at and understanding chart interpretation. Steph incorporating a Facebook group also made this class fun for me, as I love to hear others’ perspectives and stories. Another note: I am also pretty shy and easily feel judged by others (just my silly nature) but this class was very enjoyable for me! Steph plays the role of teacher well. She takes her practice/teachings very professionally but her energy is also very welcoming and non-critical. This class actually helped me to come out of my shell a lot more, so that was an added, non astrological, bonus. Lastly, I’m actually one of those people who are pretty critical of the things they pay for and I was not at all dissatisfied with this course in any way ! The class exceeded my expectations and I’m very grateful for having taken it!! This was the first astrology class I’ve ever taken and I’m glad and think it’s pretty cool that I’m able to call Steph my teacher. I highly recommend TDHA course! Thank you again for the great experience Steph!! —McCall ♋︎☉, ♌︎☽, ♈︎rising

Steph’s class gave me the confidence to finally start interpreting my own birth chart and transits, instead of relying on others’ preconceptions. I feel like I have an entirely new filter through which to see my life. — Sarah S.
