Goddess Astrology uses female archetypes to describe the planets and signs of the zodiac.
We will be learning about how the Greek goddesses embody all aspects of our experience, and how to express the positive attributes they represent, while creatively dealing with challenges they can bring.
The focus will be on the Greek pantheon although some other traditions will be covered briefly.
The week will be a mixture of exercises, talking and learning with some guided imagery taking a deep look at the goddess symbolism of the Planets and Signs and Houses.
The focus will be on your own chart, although participants may bring one other horoscope to look at in the group. Example charts illustrating the material will be discussed.
Elisabeth Brooke is currently writing Goddess Astrology for Aeon Books, due to be published in 2021.

some of the comments from the 2019 course on Starcraft and the Moon
Powerful, motivational - this course was beyond my wildest dreams. Elisabeth is an incredible teacher and ensures that each student is heard and understood. These courses are simply a must for anyone wishing to learn or hone their astrological or tarot crafts. Mo
The course was enlightening, fascinating to see how magic and astrology can work in partnership. Meeting others from all walks of life and Jo's hospitality was all part of this wonderful experience. Recommended. Nicola
A great setting, fantastic group and brilliant teaching. Lots of practical useful tools to take home and start applying straight away. Loved the relaxed teaching style of the wonderful Elisabeth Brooke, sprinkled with wisdom and pragmatism. Henrietta
Idyllic, lovely, quiet and serene place and a fascinating course. Everything was well organized and ran smoothly, a truly magical experience. Jill
Great energy and atmosphere, and the course was a real journey of discovery. Now I understand so much more about affirmations in connection to my natal chart, and how to use these throughout the year. Lynne
A totally enjoyable week. Elisabeth served up an interesting and fun course, I've learned things I didn't even know about and have a lot to take back with me to put into practice. Joanna's constant care for us all also very lovingly appreciated! All pure magic. Julie
This experience has been fantastic and really informative. The setting and location is perfect and the week has been interesting, relaxing and refreshing for the soul! It was wonderful having the opportunity to work with a great group from all walks of life, especially working with Full Moon magic, something that up till now I had only ever done solo. Laura
Life changing. I've had a phenomenal time. Not only has this course helped me grow spiritually and as a witch, it has helped me grow as a person and opened my mind to parts of myself I didn’t even know existed. Joanna
