One of the most complex aspects of astrology is learning how to blend the multiple strands of information together to form a complete picture. It takes time and practice, but with Yasmin’s guidance you’ll soon be able to read your chart – and other people’s – effortlessly, as well as dabble in the fascinating world of predictive astrology to see what the stars have in store for you.
What You'll Learn
Lesson 1: Decoding Your Chart
In this first lesson, Yasmin will explain what a birth chart is and start to break down the information contained within it. You’ll be guided through how to identify the 12 signs of the zodiac in your chart and what they represent, as well as two simple yet hugely revealing ways to categorise the signs in groups – the elements and the quadruplicities. These categories provide another way to understand which signs share similar characteristics and qualities.
Lesson 2: The Planets
In astrology, the planets represent different aspects of your persona, and their placements in your birth chart reveal your key characteristics in those areas. Most people know a little about what their Sun sign (or ‘star sign’) says about them, but are less familiar with how their other planets in different zodiac signs reveal equally relevant information about their personality, especially personal planets – the Sun, Moon, Rising Sign, Mercury, Venus and Mars.
Lesson 3: The Angles and Houses of the Birth Chart
The angles are four important lines running across your chart. They too are concerned with different areas of your personality – your outward appearance, your relationships, your inner life and your career – and give you another quick level of insight into a person. The 12 houses are also concerned with different areas of our lives – from communication and creativity, to our families, dreams and finances. Together they add another important layer of understanding about how we operate in different environments.
Lesson 4: Aspects, Configurations, and Patterns
Learning about how the planets in your chart are connected to each other is the next piece of the puzzle. Once you look more closely at exactly where a planet falls within a zodiac sign, you can pick up patterns with other planets in similar placements around your chart. This is the level at which you can really start to add detail to your chart readings and, as usual, all the information is easy to find within your chart, once you’ve been shown how.
Lesson 5: Going Deeper
By now, you’ll understand the meaning of most of the symbols on your birth chart. This lesson completes the picture by teaching you about the lunar nodes, which reveal what feels easy and comfortable to you, and the direction you need to take in life to find fulfilment. You’ll also learn about retrograde planets and why they are nothing to be afraid of; recap on how to put together everything you’ve learned so far; and find out some of the key signs to look out for when pondering astrological compatibility.
Lesson 6: Planetary Cycles and Predictions
You can apply all the lessons you’ve learned about your birth chart to any chart, including one showing the planetary positions right at this moment, which will tell you a lot about what’s happening in your life right now and the direction you’re heading in your career, relationships and more. You will be able to tell whether the planets are in harmonious synchronicity or whether there are some clashes for you to overcome. The planets are moving all the time so there is always something new to consider while you refine your chart-reading and predictive skills.
Reflect on everything you have learned on the course and feel encouraged to keep practicing and refining your astrology skills.

FANTASTIC!!! Unbelievable value for money! I'm finding myself going from just knowing a bit about Sun sign characteristics to speaking in a language that was totally foreign to me a few weeks ago!! These complex terms are explained so well by Yasmin that you feel you CAN tackle this massive subject by breaking it down into bits! A hugely beneficial & very well written & presented course, I Hope Yasmin does more in the future!

This short course on astrology is excellent. Yasmin teaches a complex subject in a simplistic way very clearly so that even a complete beginner like me has a good grasp/understanding of how the different parts come together to make a whole. There's a huge amount of learning to do but I feel the key is understanding how all the parts come together to make a chart . Only time will tell . Thank you Yasmin I really enjoyed it.
