For students of astrology & trainee astrologers

I really enjoyed attending Chirone’s astrology classes. She made them such fun. I found Chirone to be a very enthusiastic and motivated teacher who has the ability to simplify the sometimes complex concepts of astrology so that everyone in the class is easily able to understand them – Glenda

Astrology courses and workshops are offered on a regular basis on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.   For those unable to attend classes in person, online courses and distance learning options are available

.

If you’re interested in any of my courses, or you’d like to be on the mailing list to receive information about any upcoming courses or workshops, please contact me using the enquiry form on the left of this page.

NOTE   If you decide to study astrology, you will start on a lifelong journey of self-exploration and self-discovery – and if you have already started on this journey, astrology will take you much, much deeper.  Astrology is a unique tool for gaining insight into yourself (and of course others) and is ultimately a way of bringing greater awareness into our lives.  It can also be a lot of fun!  If this appeals to you, I hope to see you at my courses or workshops.

Initially, I approached Chirone for some tutorial assistance for the course I was studying with the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London, as she is a holder of that institution’s prestigious Diploma. Her extensive astrological knowledge and experience combined with great perceptive insight helped me to quickly overcome the mental block that I was experiencing. Chirone is a truly gifted astrologer, an inspiring teacher and healer whom I have no hesitation in recommending – Nita
