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.  If you’re unable to attend classes in person, online courses and private tuition 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.   Sign up for my monthly Astrology newsletter on the left-hand side of this page, and you’ll receive my newsletter including up-to-date information on my upcoming Astrology courses.

 

NOTE:   If you decide to study Astrology, you will start on a lifelong journey of self-exploration and self-discovery.  If you have already started on this inner work 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.

 

Astrology Study Programme 2020

Astrology courses are available at all levels ranging from Beginner to Advanced, held on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.  Online courses and distance learning through private tuition are offered for those unable to make classes in person.

There are 4 modules in the Foundation course, 4 modules in the Intermediate course, and 8 modules in the Advanced course, taking you ultimately to professional practitioner level, although of course not everyone who studies with me intends to become a professional astrologer!  Most of my students are learning for pleasure, and to learn more about themselves & their loved ones.  To see details of each of these levels, click on the links below.

If you are unable to attend classes in person, my online courses are a great option.  It’s also possible to have private tuition with me – for more details, click on the links below, or send me an email outlining your situation and I’ll get back to you to discuss how we can best proceed.

Astrology workshops on specialist topics are held regularly, usually at weekends although sometimes on weekdays, again for details click on the links below.

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
