Lesson Plan

The complete Basic Course at the Astropoetic School of Soul-Discovery includes 36 Lessons arranged in 6 modules of 6 lessons each.

The following outline is meant to give a general sense of the scope and depth of the course.  Particulars may change as new insights are gained through an ongoing application of
astro-logical and astropoetic principles to new situations, and as student feedback warrants.  The Course is under constant revision and all students currently enrolled will receive the upgraded lessons free of charge.

Those with experience of astrology may be eligible to skip certain lessons and/or move on to a more advanced course by taking our Advanced Placement Exam.

 

Even those with previous experience of astrology, however, should know that much of what is taught in this course is unique to the astropoetic worldview, and will not be available elsewhere.  Material that is especially astropoetic in nature or unique to this course is shown in this outline in red italic.
