About the Course
Attend a "live" Astrology class in your own home. Exploring Astrology was originally recorded as a hands-on, interactive course, but is now being offered as a NON interactive course at a much lower price. It includes the equivalent of 112 edited CDs on a thumb drive recorded with a live class and includes a digital workbook. Veteran professional astrologer, Carole Devine, takes you from the basics through chart interpretation and advanced techniques. She presents the material in a clear, entertaining way.
In the not too distant future it is inevitable that the art/science
of Astrology will become an extremely respected tool of
psychologists and other personal development professionals. There
is, therefore, a great need to formulate an educational system for
these future professional astrologers. This will go far to dispel
myths that are still rampant and to raise the level of
practitioners' skills so that we will be ready for the popular
demand that is sure to follow.
Carole has formulated an Astrology course which will effectively prepare future professional astrologers in the basic skills necessary to be able to pass certification exams and competently handle a clientele.

Enthusiastic students say:
"In your work, you probably never quite know where the impact is.
In my case, it was roughly a decade after the reading. But the
impact was full of meaning and love and opportunity for positive
transformation. I wanted you to know this and to thank you. Like I
said, these words cannot reflect the deep impact this reading
recently had on my spirit and soul and heart. But I hope this simple
thank you will inspire you in your work with others. You make a
difference, your work matters."
Warmly, Ellen Matheny, Forks, Washington
"Just wanted you to know how delighted I am with your tapes!
Your insights, predictions, and character analyses are perceptive
and right on. They are valuable tools which help me to understand my
partner and myself. I greatly respect and admire your skill as an
Astrologer. Thank you so much. I'm grateful that you are in my

“I have been a student at Kepler College for the last 2 1/2
years. Because of your course, I have fallen in love with astrology
and can't get enough of it! I have done a few other correspondence
courses also, but yours has been the very best. No other course
covers such a wide range of information, and in such a practical
way. You really prepare students for real counseling situations, and
I appreciate all of the techniques and counseling suggestions you
have shared with us over the course of the four semesters.” L.F.,
"This class is filling in lots of holes for me and clarifying much
of what was presented in the basic AFA course I took........I really
like the way you try to cement concepts solidly before proceeding."
"I can't tell you enough how much I continue to enjoy your tapes. As
many years as I've been studying and as many books as I have read,
you have such a way of really bringing it all to life and providing
so many fresh perspectives on looking into a chart. I especially
like your way of breaking it into categories as you do rather than
going around the chart through the houses which never quite suited
me. Your system just seems to put the information together in a much
more meaningful way rather than just providing a hodge-podge of
character or personality traits."
"I've learned so much more than I anticipated when I began. It was
truly a rewarding experience, and I'm sorry that it's at an end.
Thank you for all the time and effort on your part.
It was great fun."
"You have cleared up a lot of confusion for me, caused by attempting
to learn Astrology from books alone. I found Semester One
fascinating, and I'm really looking forward to starting Semester
L.F., New York
"This is the most comprehensive Astrology course I've ever taken.
The tapes make it easy to review so nothing is lost or forgotten. I
particularly like your method of synthesizing the chart."
F.G., West Virginia
"Your point of view and method of teaching are so refreshing and
easy to follow and understand. I am learning so much. I feel like a
real and welcome part of the class even though I am many miles
"I am enjoying your course tremendously. Thank you for putting
together a course that helps pull the various pieces of information
available in books and individual classes together. It's exactly
what I needed."
A.T., Seattle, WA
“Although it's kind of painstaking and slow to work through in
places, it's good stuff. You give a lot of good advice and
philosophy about doing actual forecasts for people as well as
showing the actual mechanics of how to get through it with an
economy of time. This is stuff I need to hear to make the transition
from student to professional. I just finished listening to the
lecture on ingress charts including the analysis of the NYSE crash.
Fascinating. That's a terrific lecture. This semester is a real
pleasure to listen to and work on.” D.G., Sycamore, IL
