Cosmic Companions Beginner’s Astrology Class

Get To Know The 12 Archetypes Of Astrology And Master Your Life

Cosmic Companions Beginner’s Astrology ClassThere is so much more to you than just your Sun sign. Your astrology chart describes the drama of your life—it’s bursting with colorful characters wearing odd costumes and occupying lush scenery. Psychologists call these characters “archetypes” and they are a universal part of human experience. The interactions between these characters are behind every motivation, desire and ambition you have.

Got the Lover slugging it out with the Inner Judge? Got the Thinker in a tug-of-war with the Visionary? Understanding these characters’ interactions is the key to living well through astrology. Wouldn’t you like to know a little more about them? Of course! Because you are a spiritual seeker and you want to know your purpose. You also want to know how to help other people get in touch with their purpose. You want to be able to decode that curious thing we call the human heart. And I’ve got just the thing to help you.

I’ve designed a series of classes to teach astrology to beginners, making it easy to learn, in a warm atmosphere of other seekers like yourself. You can take the class in your own home, in front of your own computer, face-to-face with me and your fellow students via online meeting software. In this series of classes, you’ll begin reading charts right away, starting with your own. Your friends will quickly be amazed at your insight into them, your compassion and your vulnerability. Watch all your relationships change as you come to understand the motivations, drives and needs of the people around you—and begin responding to them in different ways. See your loved ones blossom and your whole life open up before you.

This beginner’s class focuses on the planets, signs and houses, studying them in depth. You’ll learn what each means in your own chart and how to interpret it in other people’s charts too.  Month by month, you’ll meet them all: the Lover, the Hero, the Thinker, the Universal Mother, the Authority Figure and a host of other characters. When you understand these characters, you’ll understand the workings of human personality. By the time the class ends, you’ll have scoured every inch of your chart for stunning insights into yourself and the human condition.

“Jamie’s comprehensive knowledge, ready wit and willingness to highlight the finest qualities in each chart and identify the appropriate cures for the challenges make her an exceptionally gifted and supportive teacher.” –Andrew D.

Each class includes:

  • A lecture recording packed with mythology, stories and themes related to the topic, delivered to you online for easy download.
  • A pdf handout of the lecture for your reference and your notes.
  • Unlimited copies of your own chart and other people’s charts you request, so you can learn about the people in your life as you go.
  • Class time that is entirely devoted to examples and discussion of the charts of students in the class, so you don’t have to waste time attending a lecture, because you can do that on your own, at your own pace, offline.
  • All your astrological questions answered, on-topic first and then off-topic as time allows.
  • Attention on your chart, to develop your understanding of what things mean in your life, and how to live that part of your life in a powerful and joyful way.
  • Small-group classes, where everyone gets heard and everyone learns from each other’s experience.
  • A warm, compassionate and lively atmosphere in which you feel seen, understood and respected for your challenges and your choices in this life—and inspired to live your truest potential.

You’ll enjoy the learning process as you absorb a broad variety of information on all the basic astrological archetypes in a fun and friendly setting. Learn with your chart and the charts of others right in front of you. Practice using the archetypes and walk away from each class with real, practical tools you can apply to anyone’s chart anytime for insight and understanding. If you’ve read about your sign and perhaps a bit about others, but have never really filled in the gaps by studying them all, this Cosmic Companions Class is a great place to begin. You’ll gain a foundation for future astrological study and every person in your life will suddenly make sense to you.

Warning: In these classes we have an astonishing tendency to have fun and get silly! (Looking for intermediate and advanced astrology classes instead? Look here.)

“As an intern with Pandora Astrology and a beginning astrology student, it’s incredibly special to have Jamie as a teacher and mentor. She is a powerhouse of information yet completely accessible, compassionate and understanding to the ‘new kid on the block.’ Because it can be so hard to gain this knowledge from professional and credible sources (other than books, of course), to have a chance to study with Jamie in person is an opportunity to not be missed!” –E. Bridgeman

2022 class series begins Monday, February 28, 2022:
This series is scheduled to happen at 5 PM Pacific Time / 6 PM Mountain Time / 7 PM Central Time / 8 PM Eastern Time. Meetings happen almost every week (see schedule below). If for any reason I need to change the schedule, all active students will be notified and the change will be posted here.

Practical, hands-on learning:
All classes are filled with the kind of interpretive insights you can only get from a teacher who has been practicing for a long time and enjoys people. Each class is a 90-minute practicum in astrology: because you listen to an in-depth recording of the class material before you attend, ALL of the class time is spent on your questions and topical examples.

This is an online class, in webinar format (video, audio and screenshare). You will need a laptop computer of any kind, with a reasonably updated operating system and a fast internet connection (if you can stream video on your computer on youtube or netflix, your system is fast enough). You will also need two apps: Dropbox and Zoom, both of which are free for you. You’ll receive instructions for getting them in your registration email. And thirdly, a video camera in your computer is not a requirement, but it adds to the feeling of connection among class members if we can see your face.

“When Jamie began my reading, she began by saying that strong scripts don’t necessarily mean that a person’s life is marked by tragedy. At that moment, I honestly wondered if that was a sympathetic nudge for the horror that followed in my chart reading, or if she truly meant that. But after getting to a few major contradictions in my personality (which took all of about 24 seconds), it became clear that she genuinely sees everyone as potential, not predestined. I will absolutely recommend Jamie as a life coach, because that is what she is. Everyone who meets her is definitely a blessed person with amazing karma because she’s a priceless teacher and friend.” –Isis R.

I’ll be accepting only 10 students into this class. If you want to join, you might want to register right away to secure your spot (first come, first served). As I mentioned, these classes are small on purpose, because I want you to have access to lots of personal attention and get all of your questions answered. If you’ve been curious about astrology or studying it on your own, now is the time to jump in and learn from a real astrologer in a real private practice.

I look forward to meeting you and exploring this wondrous universe together,
