This Diploma will enable you to add to your own astrological skills the knowledge on how to combine the ancient sky myths into your or your client's life story.

To your astrological tools you will add:

  • Star parans - adding to the planet the ancient constellation myths which sit underneath the horoscope and give a further dimension to your astrological work.
  • Producing and reading natal sky maps - the images of the sky and the constellations for the day of birth.

Special note:This diploma is for those astrologers who are working with other people's charts, either professionally or for friends and Bernadette expects that you already have the skill of delineating a natal chart.

Who can enrol?

The module is open to all astrologers who have a basic, standard astrological background achieved after the first two years of study.

The Fixed Star and Visual Astrology Module

The Fixed Star and Visual Astrology module is a part of the Astro Logos Adviance Diploma and is designed to teach you how to work with the fixed stars and visual astrology using the original methods employed by astrologers before the days of Ptolemy. You will be taught how to weave these techniques with the natal chart to give a deeper understanding of planetary aspects and combinations. If you are a consulting astrologer this diploma will enhance and deepen your astrology and allow you to offer a unique astrological service to your clients.

The Design of the Module

The module consists of one semester and the materials are CDs as well as online tutorials. The course is centred around the books, Brady's Book of Fixed Stars, and Star and Planet Combinations both by Bernadette Brady and the software Starlight developed to fulfil the need for a software application that worked with the stars in the manner described in Brady's work.

The module will also include on-line seminars in fixed stars and visual astrology. These seminars will be for two hours and contain additional material to that supplied in the lecture CDs and is a vital part of the module. These seminars will be conducted as full video conferencing package to which Astro Logos subscribes and we will provide you with a special key for your use.

Teaching Style

This module is taught solely by Bernadette Brady with tutorial help by Darrelyn Gunzburg. We build a personal relationship with each of her students. This is more of a mentoring system then a impersonal attending of lectures. You are able to ask questions, get personal feedback on your assignments and through the online seminars work with Bernadette and Darrelyn in reading charts and discussing issues. You find yourself in a international community of like minded astrologers all working as a group to engage with new fields of learning.
