Basics of Natal Astrology: Understanding Your Birth Chart
"Forwarned is forarmed."- Goswami Kriyananda

The position of the planets at the time of your birth provides a unique window into the karma of this lifetime. We can use a map of the planets at the moment of birth—also known as a natal chart—to gain greater insight into our personalities, our key life lessons, where we struggle and where we excel, how make changes, communicate, love . . . It is a key karmic map, an incredible tool for both the insight and detachment necessary for spiritual advancement.

AND it’s fun and fascinating!

This workshop series provides an overview of the basics of natal astrology, and then applies them to your birth chart specifically. We’ll cover the basics of what an astrological chart means and how to read it, along with the key elements of a chart: the planets, houses, signs, and aspects. Every class will include personalized interpretation of the class’ themes. Between classes, enhance your study with two special Hatha Yoga practices dedicated to certain chakras—the link between the Universe and our own bodies.

What is Your Natal Chart, and Why is it Important?
Sunday, June 23, 2019, 2:00-4:00p
See class fees below

In this introductory class, we’ll decode the wheel—making sense of the signs and symbols used in astrology, with an emphasis on the 12 houses and the ascendant (“rising sign”). We’ll also discuss the philosophy of using astrology from the Kriya Yoga lineage and ways to utilize your chart to enhance your practice of svadhyaya (“self-study”).

The Signs and Planets: Understanding Your Important Lessons and Proclivities
Sunday, July 7, 2019, 2:00-4:00p
See class fees below

This class will dive more deeply into the signs and planets, which provide the basic energies and meanings of the natal chart. We’ll look at some basic symbolism and meanings associated with each sign and planet, with special emphasis on the Luminaries: the Sun and Moon. We’ll look at how the planets, signs, and houses interact with one another, and conclude with the lessons that our Luminaries offer us individually in this lifetime.

The Energies Driving the Karma: The Key Aspects of Your Natal Chart
Sunday, July 21, 2019, 2:00-4:00p
See class fees below

The geometric relationships of our planets to one another determines the how the planets express their karmic energies—if they are sat (beneficial) or asat (difficult). This afternoon, we’ll look at the major aspects: conjunction, opposition, square, sextile, and trine and how to tell what aspects are in your natal chart. We’ll highlight some of the most powerful aspects in each of our charts, including those indicating the major karmas of this lifetime.


$150 for the series 3 astrology workshops (6/23, 7/07, 7/21)***

$65 for any of the astrology workshops individually***

***Registrations for the astrology workshops close prior to the class so Tiffany has time to order your chart and study it. For the whole series or 6/23 individually, please register by Monday, June 17. For 7/07 individually, by 7/02; for 7/21 individually, by 7/16.

IMPORTANT: In addition to your class fee, you will need to provide Tiffany with your birth data at the time of your registration. (email Tiffany at Birth data includes: Your first and last name The city and state in which you were born The exact time of your birth (hour & minutes)

It is critical that you get this data directly from your birth certificate and not from any relatives who “remember that day.” Including your Mother! Maybe especially your Mother. There are techniques for casting and reading a chart where there is no birth certificate available, but it limits the accuracy of several of the key elements of a chart.
