The greatest power you have
is your primal life force for
love and healing -
and your ability to use this
to create a new world.

Advanced Study

Beyond the core curriculum of our six-semester, undergraduate, Chart Study Certification Program, the College of Visionaries & Wizards offers graduate study, auditing options and other ongoing classes.

Graduate classes may be applied toward Advanced Practitioner certification, as well as the eventual possibility of being certified a Master Soul Level Astrologer. Auditing provides the option for former chart study students to return to the fold and redo the program at a reduced rate (with limited class participation). Due to the “star-jazz” quality of Star Genesis and Soul Level Astrology, the Chart Study course is always evolving and cannot be taught the same way twice, making it inspirational for former students wishing to dive back in for another journey through inner space.

Ongoing classes, taught by Mark, Marcella and graduates under the aegis of our Tribal Drumbeat membership program, are conducted outside the certification route and serve as entry-level coursework as well as providing further study for specific subjects. Graduate courses and ongoing classes offer opportunities for members of the various Chart Study circles to come together for the first time, renew their acquaintances and pool their knowledge.

KARMIC FILTERS & PRENATAL VOWS.

FROM 1 MARCH TO 1 JUNE

Among the most important features of soul level astrology are karmic filters and prenatal vows, and this will be the first time Mark has brought them together. We all have karmic filters, which are subconscious perceptual lenses we view life through, which strongly color our experience based on unresolved past issues, and can provide freedom and insight when we relax their hold on us. And all have reasons we chose to reincarnate, two or three promises we make after we died in our previous life, which provide creative drive that can renew our soul purpose and life force when we attune to them.

The potential prenatal factors Mark will apply to charts are Prenatal Sun degree, which is one of the strongest indications as to who you are on a soul level, Prenatal Sun/Mercury conjunction, which indicates the message you've come to activate, and Prenatal Sun/Venus conjunctions, which indicates the new energetic tone or impulse you're bringing to the world.

In the birth chart there's the all-important Nodal Axis, as well as Saturn, 5th House, and the Karmic Pocket at the end of the 12th House. Along with these features, almost any part of the chart is liable to yield rich karmic content and soul information if you go deep enough into it.

Rather than standardizing his approach and subjecting each chart to the same process, Mark will take each chart separately and dive in as he would when during a reading.

WHOLE LIFE TIMINGS.

PART 1: SEPTEMBER 21 TO DECEMBER 21, 2022

The oracular feature that makes astrology readings different from psychic readings, tarot and rune readings is timing cycles. Soul Level Astrology utilizes the traditional astrology timings of progressions and transits, and adds in Dharmic Currents, which are seasons of the soul, that depict the path of least resistance through the years.

The shape of a single human life takes on vivid depth of meaning when looked at through the lens of whole life timings, which combine the major trends and intersecting themes of Dharmic Currents, progressions and transits, to paint a complex portrait of your entire development (framed from birth through age 100).

Mark will create a visual graph of your whole life timings, which will be shared in class and interpreted for you to learn which signs are amplified through certain decades, and which planetary aspects guide the flow of your seasons of the soul. The autumn semester will introduce you to the big picture that the spring semester will go deeper into.

This is a year-long course over two-semesters:
September to December 2022, then February to May 2023.

Regardless of how advanced or remedial your grasp of Soul Level Astrology is, there's a wealth of information to excavate from whole life timings.

DEGREE FREQUENCIES:
THE DEEPEST DIMENSION OF ASTROLOGY

No feature of Star Genesis goes deeper than the Degree Frequencies brought through by Ellias Lonsdale at the beginning of this millennium.

On this depth-journey to the core of the zodiac you’ll meet parts of yourself that have remained mysteriously elusive, and recognize deep intuitive knowledge held in your soul for lifetimes. You’ll also be able to apply the
Frequencies to your current astrology work with natal charts and timing cycles.

Unlike all other astrological degree work the frequencies act independently from the Signs of the Zodiac, making this system of 30 a soul-level numerology that transcends both the meaning and application of former degree interpretations.

Mark only teaches Frequencies about every 3 years and each time he gains greater insight into this powerful technique. During the teaching process, using his unique teaching style, he is then able to communicate their significance and potency to the group.

This is a year-long course over two-semesters.

You don’t even need to be an astrologer or astrology student to benefit from the insight this system provides.

Like gaining x-ray vision, Frequencies open up the soul and let you in.

TURNING A GOOD READING INTO A GREAT ONE

This is a new offering, sprung from teaching Level 5 last spring when I realized I’ve prepared students to do good soul-level readings, and would like to raise the bar, addressing the mechanics of advanced soul work.

UNCOVERING THE DEEPEST LAYERS OF YOUR CHART

​Your hard aspects (squares, oppositions, quincunxes and septiles) identify the challenges your soul chose to tackle in this incarnation, that pave the way for your greatest breakthrough and growth. The brightness of your natal Sun and prenatal Sun and Venus offer a lasting peace to mitigate those challenges. This course will burrow down into the hidden layers of your chart, emphasizing its underlying structure, to help you rise to your challenges and live your essence. Through deepening study, instinct, intuition and applying Star Sparks to key degrees, we’ll decipher the story your soul came here to enact, and train you to uncover the deeper layers of birth charts.
