Note: This class is only open to students who already know something about the basic planets, signs and houses of astrology.

…More and more astrologers… are experiencing the depth of insights that the asteroids lend to the new and often confusing social and interpersonal issues of our times. Many astrologers have written and spoken to me of how the asteroids explain dimensions of themselves and their relationships that could not be explained in the ten planet chart.
(quoted from Demetra George’s definitive work, Asteroid Goddesses, the Mythology, Psychology and Astrology of the Re-Emerging Feminine)

When I met Jamie Kahl I instantly knew she would become my teacher. Her synthesizing intelligence, her playful tone, and her deep-knowing eyes intrigued me. I studied with her for 12 cycles of the moon — delving deeply into the meaning of not only the 8 major planets, but house systems, transits, the ebb and flow of the wheel of life and spirit, and Chiron and the asteroids. Learning about Chiron and his story was deeply impactful as I emerged out of my soul journey — healing my own wounds, and finding ways to use these lessons to help others became a driving force in my life. The asteroid goddesses emboldened me and expanded my sense of self as woman, and as Woman. – A Student

Learning how astrology works, and then doing readings for others later connected me to the greater Universe and my full sense of self. With the foundation of Jamie’s eloquent teachings, I grasped the patterns succinctly and learned to share the lessons and energy with others. While I no longer do readings for others, except for the occasional jaunt, I use astrology, and especially the lessons from the stories of the goddesses, in everything I do. Jamie has been an inspiration to me, and I will always value her as my Teacher. –Ericka J.
