Tutoring

I teach astrology as a living, breathing language, not as sets of lifeless data. By studying with me, you will learn to speak the language that astrology is, incalculably richer and more vibrant than typical astrology tutorials or learning from books or websites. I tailor the sessions to each student.

Tutoring topics could include:
-any of the basics (houses, signs, aspects, planets)
-exploring specific planets through all the signs and/or houses
-asteroids/Lilith/Chiron
-transits, progressions, solar arcs
-returns of various bodies
-astrocartography done karmically – a new approach I’ve developed
-what is karma and how to weave a karmic story from the chart
-how to see the soul’s journey in the chart
-how to understand how to change that karma once it is seen

I’m currently taking on new astrology students. The rate is $50 per hour, with a discount on packages of 4 ($46/hour) and 8 hours ($42/hour). Lessons are in Tucson or over the telephone or Skype.

What some students say:
Tom not only brings extensive practical knowledge to his teaching but freely shares his innovative and intuitive style that is raising the world of evolutionary astrology to a new level. Not only have I thoroughly enjoyed my classes with Tom but he has introduced me to the kind of astrology I have been searching for.
A., South Carolina

Tom has been quite helpful to me as an astrology tutor. My main issue had been spending a very long time preparing for consultations with my clients. Tom has taught me how to prepare for a consultation with greater ease and a more reasonable amount of preparation time. Happily my clients seem equally pleased with my work even though I put less arduous time into preparation.
G., Maryland

I found Tom to be both deeply insightful and inspiring in very original ways. The reference points he has incorporated into his work, the voice he hears, allowed me the window for understanding and peace with aspects of myself and my walk that had previously confounded me.

Evolutionary Astrology Basics I
A six-part webinar to introducing a fast-growing approach to evolutionary astrology.
Stay tuned for the next offering.

In this webinar series, I’ll provide you with information on the nature of soul and its multilife journey (as specifically channeled from Ascended Master Djehuty, a.k.a. Thoth, St. Germain, and Merlin). We’ll then proceed through the four steps of karmic analysis central to my evolutionary astrology work: Pluto, the South Node of the Moon, the South Node ruler by sign, and the North Node.

This spiritual, multidimensional approach to astrology will allow you to understand how and why people are wired the way they are and how to help them overcome challenges while making the best choices possible. It is divinely designed to get at the core of root issues that often prevent us from true health and happiness.

Familiarity with astrology basics is required.

Overview
Week 1: The channeled model of soul, reincarnation, and karma that is the basis of my astrology work.
Week 2: Pluto as the empowerment journey the soul sets out for its humans.
Week 3: The South Node of the Moon/North Node as markers of many lifetimes of karmic conditioning.
Week 4: The South Node ruler by sign as revealing the chart holder’s identity and role in many lives.
Weeks 5 & 6: Beginning practice forming sentences using these symbols to discern a karmic story from the chart.

From a student of a previous course covering this material:
I must comment that in listening to the recordings this is an excellent class. You have a powerful innate understanding of what you’re talking about. But, more important than that is how you communicate with such clarity.

 

Evolutionary Astrology Basics II

A 6-week webinar open to those currently taking or who have taken EA Basics Level I.
This course focuses on forming sentences to create a bare-bones karmic story from example charts. Aspects to Pluto, the SN, SN ruler by sign, and NN are added, fleshing out the story. Attention is given to ensure that each student can tell a 4-step karmic story in any chart.

Stay tuned for the next offering.

Evolutionary Astrology Intermediate I

An 8-week webinar open to those who have taken EA Basics II.
This course deepens your understanding by providing numerous tricks and tips to shorten prep time and smoothly analyze charts. These include deeper layers of aspects to Pluto, the nodes of the Moon, and the SN ruler by sign and assumptions it’s not only safe to make but that are highly accurate regarding the chart holder’s multilife journey. You will also learn the fundamentals of how karma is/beliefs are created and how to change them, a central focus of the courses going forward.

Future courses in this series:

  • Evolutionary Astrology Intermediate II will focus on you answering questions from me as if I’m a client/the holder of numerous example charts.
  • Evolutionary Astrology Advanced I & II will center on preparing readings for clients as homeplay and learning flexibility and multiple interpretations for the same symbols, grounding in practice how to work with the multidimensional nature of a human and her chart.
  • Evolutionary Astrology Practicum will prepare you to work with live clients through numerous examples.

 

Embracing the Black Moon: A Lilith Webinar

A one-time, 3-hour webinar to teach you healthy ways to understand and work with the true Black Moon Lilith in your chart.

We’re coming out of 6,000 years of cultural conditioning that shames the natural feminine that Lilith represents.  Lilith is usually assumed to be demonic, yet we’re all in need of making peace with Lilith within and the gifts she offers so we can become whole again.

This webinar is geared toward increasing your self-understanding and exposing you to how I work with the true BML astrologically.  Some familiarity with astrology is helpful but not necessary.

Each webinar is open to a small group of 4.  Each will contain a presentation followed by mini-readings for each attendee, plus Q&A.  You’ll receive the video recording and presentation after the webinar.  Beyond your own mini-reading, these small-group webinars are fantastic for learning new layers about the energy through the lives and stories of others.

Reading the Soul’s Journey: Seeing Past Lives in Birth Charts
Home-study course including seven 90-minute MP3s, 4 handouts, and example charts.

This course teaches you the foundation of how I work with charts to understand the multilife journey of soul including karma, the soul’s other lives (a.k.a. past lives), and what the soul has incarnated to do. It’s a must-have for anyone interested in learning to see charts multidimensionally as well as those interested in transforming through understanding self and others.

The material is based on the 3 books in The Soul’s Journey series (available here) but expands upon them and approaches numerous charts from varied angles. I teach you the basics of each of the 4 steps I use to unlock the karmic story in a chart and build upon them, giving you insights into this cutting-edge evolutionary astrology approach. My intention is to get you inside how my head works after being stretched and opened up by the wisdom of an Ascended Master and how it has changed how I do astrology. Your astrological mind will be opened and your work will never be the same!

From students:
I am enjoying and learning a lot from the course. Two revelations in particular – the south node ruler in distinction to the south node, and that nodes and Pluto are an undercurrent of the personality – wow!
S., Texas

During the course:
I must comment that in listening to the recordings this is an excellent class. You have a powerful innate understanding of what you’re talking about. But, more important than that is how you communicate with such clarity. I am so jealous! Djehuty trained you well!! I don’t mean to gush, but as I’m listening and putting the 2 pieces together, so far, of just Pluto and the South Node I can intuitively feel the backdrop of an individual and it is coherent.
Following the course:
This class gave me exactly what I was looking for. I have studied astrology for many years; my teacher is Linda Brady (Discovering Your Soul Mission…How to Use Karmic Astrology to Create the Life You Want”).
And I have read books and learned a combination of ways to view a chart. Being Sagittarius, though, I had not been able to find a platform or foundation on which to lay the different concepts of interpretation that go through my mind.
Your description of the 4 step process is the platform that I’ve needed. I read Jeff Green’s Pluto books so many times. I could not decipher the information to a degree that was useful to me. But you have done that for me.
This class wrapped up the karmic/evolutionary background of a person’s chart in a way that I now feel I have something to hold onto in my interpretations and sessions. Soooo much information that is coherent from just those 4 elements before you even get anywhere else in the chart!!!!
Needed to say thank you and I very much appreciated the class. It fulfilled my expectations.

The Lilith Intensive
7+ hours. $60, 6 MP3s delivered via secure download.

In this set of 6 MP3s I walk fellow evolutionary astrologer Marina Ormes through an in-depth orientation to Lilith.

This a fascinating trip into understanding the breadth, depth, and possibilities when it comes to this rich and misunderstood archetype. I’m told often that my approach to Lilith is the only one out there that sates the deep curiosity that people have about this mysterious goddess and how to work with her in astrology charts in positive ways. We’re mostly taught to fear Lilith or enticed to be entranced by dark mystery surrounding her. This work lays out just what Lilith represents and how to integrate her wisdom and natural ways into your life.

While it is useful and enlightening on its own this 7 hour, 22 minute MP3 set could be an adjunct to the popular book Lilith: Healing the Wild. Certain themes are explored in more depth here and the dialogue that arises between me and Marina yields some interesting fruit not possible in a book written by one person.

A rough overview of each MP3 (you will be provided a PDF with time markers enabling easy reference through 7+ hours of material):

• File 1, 79 mins.: What is the true Black Moon Lilith (BML); the difference between true and mean positions; the difference between the asteroid Lilith (1181) and the true BML; the Lilith myth and archetype; how the true BML functions in astrology charts; the true BML’s motion.
• File 2, 81 mins.: How Lilith energy differs from planets; instinct, the body, and diet crazes; patriarchal marriage including the shame associated with divorce; how we as animals should have relationships; beginning to look at Marina’s chart including Lilith in the 1st house and Lilith in Taurus; transiting Saturn opposing true BML.
• File 3, 76 mins.: Lilith in a t-square transited by Saturn; transits of the true BML; the existence of feminist uprising – anger from oppression – and working through anger stemming from being or feeling second-class; a view on victimhood and how to come out of it.
• File 4, 84 mins.: True BML in the houses; true BML in the signs Aries-Sagittarius.
• File 5, 83 mins.: True BML in the signs Capricorn-Pisces; how Lilith fits into chart readings; life themes brought by clients living Lilith stories and how to work with them in positive ways for healing and empowerment; understanding and ending the victim-perpetrator paradigm.
• File 6, 41 mins.: An overview of a handful of celebrity examples: Madonna, Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Sarah Palin, Angelina Jolie, and Bill Clinton.

$60, 6 MP3s plus example charts delivered via secure download.

 

Asteroid & Centaur Video Course
5 videos totaling 5.5 hours, 5 PowerPoint presentations, 5 PDF handouts covering astrological houses and signs. $50 via PayPal or contact me for another form of payment.
Bodies covered: Ceres, Persephone (399), Pallas Athene, Juno, Vesta, Lucifer (1930), Eros (433), asteroid Lilith (1181), Arjunsuri (20300 – I’ve introduced this to astrology), and the centaurs Chiron and Nessus.

The difference between myth and archetype can be vast, and I’ll show you how to read between the lines with all 11 stories. Myth is used for social instruction, while archetype is the thread within the human psyche that is the story we’re actually living.

Using the videos and handouts, you’ll learn how to approach each body in astrological charts not with a few keywords but with an understanding of how we live these stories. A fantastic tool for enlarging your astrological vocabulary to better fit with how we actually live!

Purchase the video course via PayPal. You’ll receive an invitation to join a Dropbox folder containing the files within 24 hours.

 

Astrology MP3s

Saturn in SagittariusSaturn in Sagittarius, 58 minutes, $10. Saturn's transits get a bad rep but there are wonderful things that come from them ... when we're willing to work with this planet of planning and doing. Here I explain how to work with Saturn's energy intentionally as it travels through Sagittarius, dissolving the mystery of how to make the most of this planet's time in this sign.
tag2012talkTucson Astrologers Guild 2012 Presentation, 73 minutes, $10. I was invited to speak about 2012 to the Tucson Astrologers' Guild on December 14th, 2012. This 73-minute talk merges a spiritual perspective with the astrology I practice to describe what empowerment in these changing times means and looks like.
header_image-onlyRetrograde Planets in the Birth Chart, 117 minutes, $18. I explain the technical side of a retrograde planet before going into depth about to understand them in birth charts in general. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are then explored in depth both as a function of the psyche and life and when found retrograde in birth charts.
lilithmp3Lilith: Healing the Wild, 107 minutes, $18. My first public talk on Lilith. Using the patriarchal war on the feminine that we’ve been living amid for a few thousand years as a backdrop, I trace the mythology of Lilith as a tool for social instruction about appropriate expression of femininity, and the archetype as we live it, a 9-stage process we find ourselves in as we live Lilith’s story. Lilith is approached as a route to deep emotional healing that can serve us as we navigate the changes taking place on Earth and within human consciousness at present.
fortheloveofgodLucifer: For the Love of God, 69 minutes, $15. The first public presentation of over three years of work with the Lucifer archetype, this workshop separates the fear-inducing core of the Judeo-Christian myth of Samael/Lucifer from how we live this doubter's story. Samael/Lucifer's problems are basic human problems, and we each live his story in our explorations of the right size, kind and use of ego in our lives.
neptune-in-piscesNeptune in Pisces, 60 minutes, $15. This mp3 explores the meaning of Neptune, its passage through Aquarius, and the initial ingress to Pisces (4/4/11). Then it covers how to understand Neptune in Pisces for us as individuals and a collective during its 14-year transit beginning 2/3/12.
persephonePersephone: Myth and Archetype, 52 minutes, $15. Persephone (asteroid 399) is not widely used in astrology, but many people know the story intimately and identify with the maiden's/queen's path in deep ways. This talk builds upon the Persephone chapter in Living Myth: Exploring Archetypal Journeys, going deeply into the myth that we have received about this figure and what that shaping has taught us about being good members of patriarchal society. Then I unfold aspects of the archetype as we actually live it, to provide context for learning to accept the abduction journeys we all live.
yakimaemarchYakima: Emotional Archaeology Intensive, 8 mp3s totaling 12 hours, $65. I lead a small group in a 2-day intensive through the process of learning about what karma is and how to see it in a birth chart. A great level of detail about what soul and karma are is included to set up the chart exploration. This intensive is transcribed as The Soul's Journey II: Emotional Archaeology.
yakimahumanevolYakima: Chiron and Human Evolution, 110 minutes, $15. This talk covers just what exactly a human is, what 2012 is about, and the evolutionary opportunities available to humans now.
anewviewA New View of Spirituality in the Birth Chart, 63 minutes, $15. This talk outlines my original approach to spirituality emphasizing free will, choice and responsibility, the hallmarks of Evolutionary Astrology. Using Jupiter, Neptune, Lucifer (1930) and Arjunsuri (20300), I outline how to interpret what an individual's chart reflects about his or her conditioning surrounding four elements related to spirituality: belief (Jupiter), surrender (Neptune), ego alignment (Lucifer) and conscience (Arjunsuri).
