 Six-Month Mentorship Program

I am teaching a six month mentoring class for a group of baby to intermediate astrologers wanting to take their chart reading skills to the next level, starting on March 11, 2023.   

If interested let me know. 


We will meet for two hours monthly over zoom, with assigned homework each month that includes tracking one’s selected charts/transits.



6 modules: First half of each class is technique and philosophy, and the second half is actively taking turns reading charts.  Wherever you are on the spectrum from baby astrologer to intermediate, just listening to each other bravely go for it is educational and the best way to learn.

Just like being immersed in any other language you are learning, your body starts to feel the rhythm which is just as important as the techniques. 

*Each month includes (optional) written homework and a video of me reading some charts for you to observe and learn from.

Class fee: $450 if paid in advance, or two payments of $250 

(If special payment arrangements are needed, please check in with me) 

Paying for the class reserves your spot.

This is optional, the course can be done with or without, but I guarantee you will learn more if you chose to do it. 

You will choose two charts that you will track (besides your own).

In addition to the homework each month, you will have a class project: pick someone famous (w reliable birth data) and record a half-hour reading in the last month, which I will listen to and give feedback, for graduation. You will also be given a class buddy,

as making friends in astrology trainings can create lasting alliances. 


For each month’s homework, I encourage you to actively source the info and learn to effectively compute and gather data from the internet and books. 

Learn to compare and contrast, vet, and synthesize definitions that you find. 




Books and supplies list: 

Astro gold app ($40) 

Yesterday’s Sky by Steven Forrest

The Wheel of the Year:
Astrology, Plants, & Ritual


Join Paetra for a journey around the Wheel of the Year, meeting once each month

for a discussion including astrology, plants, and ritual.

You will learn how these weave together, and how you can use them in practical

and helpful ways for your life. 


Paetra is a consulting astrologer with a wide international clientele,

she is a columnist & digital writer for

the Mountain Astrologer magazine, she teaches a Six-Month Mentorship program and runs one-on-one mentorships through AFAN.

She is an artist, herbalist, and plantswoman rooted in western Sonoma County, California. 

This year-long class will envelop the best of all her skills into a rich, beautiful, and useful syllabus that will follow the Sun through the Zodiac.  


This class is good for beginner and intermediate students and is a great way to

immerse yourself in astrology and ritual in this weird and unpredictable era. 


Each class will involve an astrology lesson, a plant lesson, a group discussion of current events, and homework in the

form of a plant-based ritual to do on your own that month.


For twelve months of classes: $375 if paid in advance, or two payments of $200
