course description 

Astrology & You is a 2-part, 10-week online course and group experience designed to introduce you to (or enhance your relationship with) the building blocks of interpreting natal astrology. Through the exploration of astrological systems, symbolism, and archetypes as well as deep self exploration, you will become astro-literate while developing a more nuanced and empowering understanding of your Self. 

Throughout the series you will be guided through the elements of astrology, cumulatively building your understanding one conceptual layer at a time and learning how to apply each component to your own natal chart. If you complete all 10 weeks, you will have a novice, but meaningful grasp on basic chart interpretation which will support both the continued study of your own natal chart and transits as well as the application of these concepts to other’s natal charts.


Note - this course does *not* prepare you to be a practicing astrologer. This course is for those in the beginning stages of learning astrology and/or those with a foundational understanding that are looking for dedicated time, space, and resources for deepening their self-study through the language of astrology. Becoming a professional astrologer requires years of study and many hours of chart practice. Please reach out to Kelsey if you would like recommendations on more comprehensive courses! 


The course is limited to a maximum of 20 participants at a time in order to ensure that each person receives appropriate attention and that a community is formed which allows for participants to get to know

one another.

Whether you choose to enroll for 5-weeks or 10-weeks, you can expect:

  • A deepening of your understanding of Self through the lens of astrology

  • A clear and concise breakdown of the elements of astrology 

    • Part 1: chart orientation, astro philosophy, glyphs, planets, points, signs, breadth and depth of astrology

    • Part 2: houses, essential dignities, aspects, transits, history and branches of astrology, synthesis

  • Ample opportunities to practice the application of the content listed above in the context of your own chart

  • A community experience, with opportunities to participate during classes, virtual astro socials, & to connect with fellow participants and the teacher between weekly sessions via email & online forum

  • Materials & Resources to support your independent study & continued learning

  • Optional homework assignments (typically memorization exercises or meditative journaling exercises) to help you retain, deepen, and internalize the information you’re processing in class

  • Video & Audio Recordings of all classes in case you miss or would like to revisit one

  • Discounted access to one-on-one tutoring sessions & readings throughout the duration of the course

The course is split into two segments so that participants can choose the depth that best satiates their current thirst for astrology and starting point that meets them at the appropriate level. You can see the breakdown of the sessions on the Content & Schedule page to get a sense of whether one or both parts are a good fit for you at this time.

about kelsey


Kelsey Rose is a practicing astrologer, life long learner, and passionate teacher. Her background in education has fueled her with insights, techniques, and skills that support and propel her insatiable thirst for sharing knowledge with others. As she’s delved deeply into a number of esoteric systems for empowerment and healing, she’s embraced applying what she knows about the processes of learning and teaching to the dissemination of these powerful modalities.


Kelsey has been teaching in various settings, from public high schools, to private voice lessons, to astrology, yoga, and reiki classes for adults, since 2011. She has offered an abbreviated two-part workshop on the material offered in this course twice in the past year. She is excited to introduce the content from her former iterations of “Astrology & You,” in this lengthier, more spacious, and accessible-from-your-couch format. 


Kelsey believes that the greatest gift of astrology (and there are so many) is that seeing yourself through the lens of astrology allows you to see yourself through the eyes of the Universe. The Universe knows that you are perfect as you are; that you are both a fragment of the Universe and the whole Universe at once; and how you can move through your life with more ease, comfort, compassion, joy, and success - whatever success means to you. (The Universe also knows what success means to you.)


Kelsey also believes that you know your chart better than any astrologer, because you are your chart, and you’ve been living your chart your whole life on this earth. Learning about yourself from a trained astrologer or from horoscopes or an astrology app can be INCREDIBLY insightful, healing, and powerful, but there is nothing that holds a candle to the experience of knowing and interpreting the symbolism in your chart with your own sacred wisdom. Once you start, you never stop. You will keep learning and shifting and growing and extrapolating on your understanding of your chart for your whole life. This life-long process of enhanced understanding is what Kelsey hopes to initiate with you in this course. 


Join Kelsey for a 5-week segment or for the full 10 weeks to become anchored in your understanding of astrology, and more anchored in your understanding of yourself.
