Learn how to read natal charts from the perspective of the soul & the soul's ongoing evolution in this deep-dive online course! Coming to you May 10 - August 15, 2021!
Whether you are just beginning your astrological journey, or are a professional astrologer, or anywhere in between, this course is designed to uplevel you. You'll deepen your communion with the cosmos, expand your confidence in understanding and speaking the language of astrology, and gain tools to apply your astrological knowledge to bring magic, healing, and flourishing into your daily life.
Many people have a deep fascination with astrology, following astrological weather reports or researching their natal placements in books, or even offering casual readings to friends. But many of these individuals also feel like astrology is somehow separate from them, something they don't yet get. Something is standing in the way from feeling grounded and rooted in the practice.
I self-studied astrology for nearly a decade and my life changed overnight the first time I studied with a teacher. I went from depending on other astrologer's interpretations to realizing that I could form direct relationships to Source, to the planets, to the archetypes, and receive direct transmissions of insight from within. And you can, too.
This course contains a comprehensive vision of astrology that empowers you to gain your bearings and deepen your practice for the rest of your life onward.
So, you want to deepen your relationship with astrology? Your why’s may vary from some of the following:
I'm here to answer your questions throughout the course - I'm available by email and during class meetings. I really encourage students to reach out.
Enjoy lifetime access to engaging, easy-to-follow video teachings that guide you through deeper understandings of the archetypes and techniques covered in this course.
Have the opportunity to ask questions, share insights, and bond with other people on the path over group video calls! In the later sections of the course we will be doing live chart readings to culminate our studies together.
The content in this course provides depth perspectives of the archetypes and techniques - illuminating for seasoned astrologers and newcomers alike. By exploring foundational concepts and building up in complexity, this course is truly all levels.
The students of this course tend to bond and form friendships, and even study groups that live on after the course is over. While students span different generations and continents, we all share a passion for soul-deep astrology.
Evolutionary Astrology is both a wisdom school and a mystery school, and students repeatedly report new vistas of their spirituality opening up to them through the content of this intensive.
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?
At a technical level (for those of you who already speak astrology - but if not, don't worry - you'll get caught up!), Evolutionary Astrology places a great deal of emphasis on Pluto and the outer planets, and the lunar nodes. Evolutionary Astrology is also an intutive form of astrology, where it is just as important to tune in with the person as it is important to tune into the natal chart. This is not a fatalistic form of astrology, but rather is a school of astrology that places emphasis on our capacity to evolve emotionally and spiritually. Learning the wisdom teachings of the archetypes (as you will in this course) tends to be evolutionary and therapeutic in of itself. Make sure you read the testimonials throughout this page to hear how it has affected past students of this course!
"I feel like it’s really hard to condense my gratitude for Sabrina herself into a short review; it’s like plumbing the depths of the ocean with only a spoon to catch a seahorse. She has a subtle, Neptunian vibe that makes it easy to ask questions and come at the work from a very pure, personal space. When I have spoken up or asked a question, I have always been met with genuine acceptance and respect. The organization each week, the slides, the talk and the conversation between all of us has created an atmosphere that, for me, has been a joy, as I’ve been encouraged to learn as much from my classmates as Sabrina herself, and I have learned a lot! I feel much more coherent and fluid in my astrological practice, and have made genuine friends I cherish. If you’re interested in Evolutionary Astrology, Sabrina will guide you through the process and concepts around it with grace and clarity. I’m so glad I invested in this experience."
I'm a huge proponent of having a team and growing and evolving with the support of a whole village. And I love my astrology colleagues. If you're an astrology lover, I hope you'll study with as many teachers as you are drawn to. Every astrologer is like a liaison between the cosmos and you, and the reason to study with me is because you resonate with the vision of astrology that I share.
I'm here to further give that vision to you and also give you the tools to become astrologically self-sufficient, meaning you'll leave this course with the frameworks and tools to continue deepening your practice for as long as you wish to.Enroll Now
All the archetypes or elements of a natal chart (signs, planets, aspects, etc.) exist on a vast spectrum of possibility.
We can experience the lower-end of this spectrum of possibility via our most difficult struggles and patterns.
But once we understand the arch of possibility at play, we can transform our challenges or repeating patterns into higher forms of themselves…
Like a person in a dim state of realization versus a person glowing and flourishing in their highest excitement and self-actualization. Same person, different experience!
Similarly, no matter how you break it down astrologically (the sign, planet, aspect, house, etc.) there are gradients of realization within the archetypes and therein lies our capacity to both identify problems/things we’d like to improve upon and imagine a better future that is totally within reach.
This is how astrology helps us evolve.Enroll Now
We act like astrology is just something that some people naturally understand but the reality is every skillful astrologer out there has studied with a teacher or mentor. Since its origins, astrology has been a spread-by-transmission art, from teacher to student.
We wouldn’t look at someone doing a complex yoga posture and say, "Wow! I can’t believe they just naturally know how to do that with their body." We are more likely to suspect that that person has studied yoga with someone and practiced.
The energy that we invest into studying and practicing astrology is returned to us through deepened intuition, insight, and intimacy with life. We experience flashes of genius. Like the yogi's ability to get into complex asanas (physical postures), studying astrology can open up enhanced mental, emotional, and spiritual abilities.
"I wholehearted recommend Sabrina’s intensive not only for folks with a curious passion for evolutionary astrology, but for those who are ready to cultivate a relationship to the archetypal denizens of their own nature in a safe and supportive learning environment. I began this course with a peripheral understanding of general astrology, and had a desire to know more than I knew, and I got way more than I bargained for. Thanks to this lovely experience, I’ve gained a deepening confidence in my own ability to recognize and interpret subtle celestial influences in my own life and develop balance in them. There’s a real perennial approach to cosmic living here, and I’m not overstating how valuable Sabrina’s methodology could be to one’s own journey towards fuller embodiment. Not just exclusively for potential practitioners, this a great course for storytellers who want to infuse their work with an expansive approach to intuitive mythology; for healers who want to apply a plus-minded modality for spiritual wellness; or for the seeker who is learning to trust their process of divinity and individuation. Sabrina is a masterful teacher, an Aquarian Age magnet for good people of many paths, and what she’s created will certainly elevate the best of your self-knowledge."
"As someone who has self-studied astrology for years, Sabrina's course provided me with the perfect container for accelerated growth. The course materials perfectly exemplified Sabrina's unique approach to astrology. She sources creative and regenerative channeled insights through deep devotion towards studying the archetypes and the technical aspects of astrology. Prior to joining, I was always mystified as to how one manages to achieve this level of mastery. Through the course, Sabrina masterfully guided us and held space for us to develop not just an intellectual or philosophical understanding of the system, but more importantly a felt sense of these archetypes. The structure and inherent discipline of the container served to finely tune our intuitive capabilities. By the end of the course, I felt like I, too, am capable of developing my own relationships with and build insights from these astrological archetypes. The video content that makes up the weekly modules are deeply illuminating, and highly inspiring. While Sabrina's content is always of the highest quality, her tone is inviting, warm, and friendly. The experience is akin to having a fireside chat with a good friend who just happens to be highly skilled astrologer. I have no doubt that I will revisit them often for the rest of my astrological journey. In addition, the students that Sabrina attracted to this container are highly committed, engaged, mature, curious, and compassionate seekers. Through Sabrina's tutelage, a common astrological language emerged within the group's consciousness through the course. It was a beautiful and healing experience to witness this community forming and supporting each other. If you've been thinking about the course, I highly recommend you join this beautiful container!"
"I have been fascinated with the language of astrology for years. Before Sabrina’s Evolutionary Astrology Intensive course, I had an intermediate understanding of all the signs, planets, and houses. I felt like I had all the components, but no instructions on how to piece it all together. After finishing the course, I feel so much more confident in being able to read charts. In addition to being able to delineate a natal chart, the evolutionary aspects in Evolutionary Astrology are a paradigm shifting framework. This study of astrology provides a lot of wisdom and an epic and mythic long view of one’s time and experience in this current life cycle. This class complicates your understanding of linear time and provides a roadmap to the quantum field. I highly recommend this class to all astro-travelers!"
"As a longtime appreciator of astrology, exposed but not immersed yet, this class was the perfect venue for getting my mind and heart attuned more finely to the language of astrology. Sabrina put together a really coherent class, with a nice mix of in person meets and at-your-own-pace material (which is nice that we have continued access to). Sabrina has a superpower for putting words to concepts which I feel take a lot of facets of reflection to really lock-in true understanding. The structure and flow of class were designed well to first give you an immersion into the archetypes and then start putting the technical details together, finally wrapping up with natal chart interpretation the last few weeks. Because of the final natal chart portion of the class, a true sense of depth of meaning through sharing our life stories is gained. Not only of astrology and how it presents itself in our lived souls, but also a sense of community with fellow budding astrologers. The booklist is also top notch ;-) All in all, a really wonderful class for those curious about evolutionary astrology, or astrology in general. I feel more attuned and more confident in my astrological skills and this class alone has given me the ability to understand my chart (and friends & family) better."
"I can’t find words for my gratitude about Sabrina’s Evolutionary Astrology Intensive Course. It influenced me in so many ways, layers, spheres… I already had some astrological knowledge and studied EA by myself before the course started. BUT now I know that I just scratched on the surface. Sabrina’s video lessons, the group calls and the recommended literature led me deep into the heart of the archetypes and guided me to higher levels of consciousness. I deepened my knowledge about the planets, signs, houses, aspects and the Evolutionary Astrology Pluto paradigm. I learned to feel the archetypes more intuitively. I developed my chart reading skills because of Sabrina’s profound, experienced, philosophical and magical teachings. The group calls were full of wisdom, and the ongoing Facebook conversations brought me new insights. I felt very safe and secure in the group. Sabrina holds the space for everyone and the whole group in a wonderful, cheerful way. Sabrina is an amazing teacher and her intensive course opens the space for deep learning and high wisdom. I explored not only the cosmos and astrological heavens in a new way, but also learned so many things about my soul’s journey, lifecycles, reincarnation and the magic of the spheres. I highly recommend the course to everybody who desires to practice astrology on a deeper level and is courageous enough to get in touch with the Soul."
"If one of Sabrina's objective is to enchant folks through evolutionary astrology, I was willingly enchanted throughout the intensive course! I came into the class with a more-than-a-year self-taught background in astrology, mainly the traditional approach, and having Sabrina as my first ‘formal’ astrology teacher will forever be a cosmic blessing. The materials and teachings of the class were creative and inspirational, which directly spurred the insightful class engagements each week. The class community gathered through the class was my favorite, especially as someone who appreciates learning with and through others. While I was developing a greater understanding of technical aspects of evolutionary astrology, the class has also opened up a new huge portal for me to tune in with and meditate on the zodiac signs, the planets, the aspects, the phases, etc. which was a deeply personal and spiritually transformative experience in of itself. The class has definitely aligned me in looking at astrological charts through archetypal and soul-based perspectives, which provides a beautiful bridge between who I am (or I think I am) with the cosmos within me. I left the class feeling inspired, and more importantly, having a greater, deeper, healthier relationship with the archetypes living within my soul, beautifully embedded within my chart. I also left the class with a deeper appreciation of my Pluto placement, which was largely ignored prior to Sabrina's offerings!"
"When I saw that Sabrina Monarch would be offering scholarships to her Evolutionary Astrology Intensive, I knew I had to apply. Since I'd gotten a reading from Sabrina in the past, I knew how powerful of an astrologer she is and couldn't wait to get started as a student. Yet her skill and comprehensive, approachable teaching style were beyond my expectations. I'm usually not my most-present self when working in video meetings, but my shyness and anxiety quickly subsided as we all passionately discussed planetary archetypes and soul-based karmic evolution. By the end of the intensive, I felt like myself and all other students had been a part of something great, magical and karmic indeed. The educational videos Sabrina posted every week for homework were delightfully fun to listen to and they very thoroughly described the more challenging topics, like planetary phases and aspects. Despite my long history with magical/healing arts, I began the class as a novice of all things astrology. Now I can read friends and family's charts with confidence and compassion using Evolutionary Astrology techniques.This intensive not only offers a new skill set for the unexperienced, but it offers a whole new cosmic philosophy which won't end with the natal chart. It will come alive, right before your eyes, in the numinous and the mundane."
"Working with Sabrina made a remarkable difference in my astrological understanding. Her teaching is not only deeply informative, but insightful. She is warm, perceptive, and skilled at explaining various concepts in a digestible way. I entered the class feeling apprehensive and shy. After finishing the course, I am happy to say I feel way more confident in my astrological articulation, as well as feeling surrounded by a warm, engaging community. Thank you so much, Sabrina for this wonderful experience!"
"Sabrina’s Evolutionary Astrology Intensive class combined care and deeply intellectual study in a way that was both thoughtful and still accessible. Sabrina held our hands through the many different stages of astrology study we were at and encouraged peer-learning, which made it so that we got different insights into our charts. We got to know and trust our peers with our stories because we modeled the way in which Sabrina made the space feel safe. What I learned about my chart alongside my past experiences felt so validating and studying the lunar nodes felt affirming of my life choices and gave me the ability to believe I could break and transform patterns. Sabrina’s modules are so informative, and their use of a myriad variety of examples ranging from pop culture to literary icons make learning astrology so enjoyable and stimulating. The structure and pacing is designed with so much thought as to how to keep it both accessible for the beginning learner but still thought-provoking for the more seasoned student of astrology. I will always be grateful for this experience."
"I had already studied astrology with one teacher as well as on my own, but Sabrina and Evolutionary Astrology spoke to me. I like that the archetypes through EA are much more psychological and felt. Absolutely all of it seems more felt, like an experience. Sabrina, you have a gift of expanding the mind and its traditional parameters while still maintaining curiosity and openness to learn from everyone and everything. The group dynamic has been amazing. To be able to connect and share with likeminded people across the world is a classroom within itself. Lastly, your integrity, in which you practice your craft, is gorgeous and supports the healing modality of astrology. I would love to take a course from you again!"
"Before taking Sabrina’s Evolutionary Astrology course, I was researching astrology on my own with the hope to understand the energies of my natal chart better. I found an overwhelming amount of information, and was feeling like I had puzzle pieces, with each piece belonging to a different puzzle. An opportunity presented itself and I thank Sabrina for making it possible to take her course which offered puzzle pieces all fitting to one puzzle. Understanding the natal chart, for me, was like getting to know the bridge that connects the language of astrology with the language of my intuition. What stands out to me about Sabrina’s course is the emphasis on the lunar nodes, Pluto, and the evolution of the soul. This karmic perspective alchemically shifted my psychic lens and my dreams after the very first meeting. The way in which Sabrina talks about the planets helped illustrate the integration of the different archetypes for me. I’ve learned that astrology is a language and that the planets are in constant conversation with one another. Sabrina helped me untangle the concept of intuitive blending, and helped me realize that astrology may be practiced by not just the left side of my brain, but by the right side as well. I now find myself feeling randomly (and pleasantly) stunned by what feels like a planet or an aspect knocking on my door as I meditate or engage in my everyday rituals. Each classmate in the course represents a snapshot of the sky and a snapshot of the continuous and intimate conversations the planets hold—truly inspiring and a timeless gift that I share with the stars who I met in Sabrina’s course and with the stars that I see in the sky. Thank you Sabrina for all the love, wisdom, and knowledge that you are and that you share!"
"I have been enthusiastically following Sabrina's forecasts for years and was elated when she began teaching her evolutionary astrology course. I immediately knew that I wanted her guidance. Though I had a very rudimentary foundation of astrology, I have always been drawn to Jungian psychology, the unconscious, the esoteric, and archetypal aspects of the psyche. I wanted to deepen my understanding of the individual and collective psyche, and their purposes in this lifetime through connections to archetypal blueprints and the universe. Evolutionary Astrology, compounded with Sabrina's knowledge and intuition, provided me with invaluable perspective on my purpose in this lifetime. I have greater knowledge and awareness of myself, others, and the significance of relationships in my life, as well as the confidence and tools necessary to maximize the potential of my natal chart. It has been a very humbling, yet incredibly empowering experience. Thank you, Sabrina. You've helped unlocked a part of the universe for me. I'm so grateful to have you as a guide on my journey. "
"I first found Sabrina’s website quite by ‘accident’. I found myself reading her blog and exploring older issues of the blog. The words captured me and the unique perspective started shifting these pieces of my heart in profound ways. I would mull over a phrase over the course of a week and find my own perspectives shifted and expanded. After a few months, I learned Sabrina was offering a course on Evolutionary astrology and I deeply desired to take it. I am so glad I did! This course has been life-altering in so many deep ways. I have found my understanding of astrology enriched in ways I hadn’t before experienced, as well as finding my night dreams full of symbolism and incredible messages and understandings. My relationship with the planets and the archetypes and understanding of how they play together has enlivened my own birth chart and given me a rich understanding of my inner self. I highly recommend studying with Sabrina. Her manner is kind and warm, open and encompassing. She truly loves humanity and has a profound understanding of the inner workings of astrology and the human psyche. Learning from her has been an immeasurably beautiful gift."
"Sabrina’s course came into my life at a high crisis moment. The course itself was deeply healing and transformative, and of course, educational. I’ve been a casual student of astrology for a long time but had never delved so deep or known what depths were even possible. Over the course I developed an in-depth relationship to the zodiac and the planets in a way that has deeply shaped and informed my view of reality, my spiritual purpose, the way the archetypes play out in our lives and on a global level, and how to navigate the shifting astrological weather. This course is both an amazing chance for self-discovery and self-healing, and a portal to a new comprehension of existence. Following Sabrina’s course, I’m now considering a future career as an astrologer and will certainly remain a devoted student of this ancient and modern practice."
"Sabrina’s program was a transformational, empowering experience. I recommend it to anyone interested in deepening their understanding of themselves and their place in the cosmos. This class was a paradigm shift for me, adding dimension to my understanding of astrology that I had not even conceived of. Sabrina is a wise, positive, and empowering guide who is gifted in accessing the soulful aspects of the natal chart. She is supportive and accessible, and has really gone out of her way to make sure that the material is understood. As a healer and herbalist, this has deepened my practice and helped me to incorporate chart readings into my work. Sabrina’s perspective is unique and clearly cultivated from years of soul-seeking and intensive study and observation. It is healing, soulful astrology in service to a bigger picture. I left every class feeling inspired. And it was amazing to be in community with likeminded people! If you’re considering this class, take a leap and go for it. It is well worth it!"
"When I first stumbled upon Sabrina’s work, I was enchanted by her words and use of language. Back then, my logic was this: with a bright mind like hers, she would be a great teacher. And while she is very bright and able to explain information artfully, I feel the most stand-out element of Sabrina’s Intensive was the way she fostered connection. It seems like Sabrina references opening and openness a lot, and that is exactly what she brought to the intensive. It was clear that she could listen and respond and hold space for the inevitable questions that arise in learning. Outside of the lectures and practicum sessions, Sabrina made time to email back and forth with me. We had lengthy written discussions about developing a professional practice and how to find and create community. I received so much information through these emails; it was really valuable for me. I believe the student-teacher relationship is delicate and sacred. It felt like Sabrina honored that sacredness and created meaningful bonds with each participant of her intensive. In many ways, her education style went beyond teaching technicalities and into modelling an approach to astrology. While everything she does is evolutionary at the core (differing from much of my own conceptual framework), I’ve found a lot of stabilizing foundation in the way she modelled curiosity and enthusiasm for the cosmos, which I use today in my own practice."
"Sabrina is a rare individual who puts her heart, mind, body & soul into her craft. She brings in-depth high-quality content to her weekly astrological forecasts and this course. I started studying astrology on my own back in 2007. I passionately dove into it for about 5 years until I shifted my focus into studying Kabbalah. Once I had a firm understanding of the basics and was able to see astrology play out as an interactive story of intricate energetic evolution and growth, I stopped deepening my studies in the craft and began to only rely on my intuitive connection to the cosmos. At some point in my journey I drifted far off path and was experiencing extreme distress which eventually led me to feverishly search for guidance through astrology. I searched quite a few websites until I found an article of Sabrina's that would shed the light I needed in order to digest what I was experiencing in a more positive, open, self-responsible manner. And that is exactly what Sabrina's vision of astrology provides, and I was able to connect more with from the course moving forward. Something Sabrina offers in this course is a deeper dive into understanding all the archetypes. She connects with each of their energies and not only forms a relationship with them, but also goes the extra step of bringing in sobering psychological correlations to the ego, super ego and higher self. In her course she gifts you with insights that help you recognize hidden aspects of yourself. Which is why I was so excited and grateful to take her class on Evolutionary Astrology. Not only was it awesome to work with someone who holds the craft with high integrity, but to take the class with other people from all around the world! Freak'n super cool yo! Through taking her class I rekindled my passion for astrology and have new, more expansive tools to integrate my higher-soul-star-self into my physical reality. If you're at all curious in taking this class of hers, I HIGHLY recommend it."

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.
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. And with practice, you'll get better and better at it.
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.
Who is this class for?
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?
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 studying in a more formal context. 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.
Do I need to know astrology before taking this course; is it okay if I’m a total beginner?
This course can be taken by people who have any level of astrological knowledge; including seasoned students/practitioners of astrology who want to learn about the Evolutionary Astrology perspective. Students who are newer to astrology but experienced with studying archetypes or psychology will likely have an easy and quick time grasping the concepts.
Students who are very new to astrology (like you don’t know how to look up a natal chart) are welcome in this course, and encouraged to stick with the challenge of the learning curve. This course teaches the fundamentals, so you are able to come to this course as a total beginner. If you want to run your situation or experience level by me, don't hesitate to reach out over email [email protected].
If you enjoy reading my weekly forecasts at www.monarchastrology.com, you'll encounter similar language and depth in this course.
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.
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.
What do you love about teaching this course, Sabrina?
Why thank you for asking! 🤗 I have truly enjoyed connecting with students about this super rich material and witnessing groups of students bond over the duration of the course, and form friendships that last after the course is over. I've enjoyed witnessing people's breakthroughs and the phenomenon of people feeling more accepting, loving, and embodied as themselves as they learn or deepen their existing fluency in this language. I love the deep and meaningful conversations that arise and the opportunity to share a language that has empowered and transformed me so deeply, with others who end up feeling that same enrichment and meaning.
Friendships have continued, study groups have formed, students have developed their professional practices, and we've even had a class reunion with more to come. I've always envisioned this course to be an initiation (the first or one of many) into the astrological world. You get to leave this course more connected to the cosmos, to magic, to community, and your deep inner-knowing.
