Introduction to Evolutionary Astrology

A six week course taught through Astrology University * by Cheryl Hopkins & Kay Taylor * beginning Saturday September 3 * 9 am PDT/12 pm EDT – 11 am PDT/2 pm EDT includes recordings



In this introductory course, you’ll learn the foundation techniques of evolutionary astrology in the style taught by Steven Forrest. The evolutionary approach to astrology emphasizes personal choice and free will while providing guidelines for unlocking the creative potential inherent in every birth chart. See

You’ll learn that there are no “bad” aspects – all aspects are about integration. You’ll learn how to interpret the primal triad – Sun, Moon, and Ascendant – in a way that moves beyond mere personality description.

You’ll learn how to identify and read the “chart behind the chart” signified by the nodes of the moon. The placement of the nodes – their signs, houses, rulers and aspects – reveal both the karma that is ripe for evolution as well as the way forward.

Finally you’ll be introduced to the concept of the “nodal story” – a story that is resonant with the emotional energy the soul incarnated with, which is used to help the client connect with and identify this energy within themselves.

Prerequisites: You should have a basic understanding of planets, signs and houses. You will be taught basic chart synthesis, so no previous chart-reading experience is required. We recommend that you have read The Inner Sky by Steven Forrest. And suggest that you read Yesterday’s Sky during the course.

The course will run for 5 sessions, with an optional bonus webinar taught by Steven Forrest during the second week on Pluto transits. Classes run from 9:00 to 11:00 am each Saturday.

Kay and I met attending Steven Forrest’s Apprenticeship Program. We’ve been long time friends and colleagues ever since. I have the highest regard for Kay. She is a beautiful soul bringing the love through her compassion and wisdom in her work. I look forward to this opportunity to join with Kay in sharing what evolutionary astrology has to offer.  – Cheryl
