Edgar Cayce asked us to "know thyself!" Why? According to Cayce, knowing and "conquering" self was an important step in our spiritual growth.

Each four-week session will focus on a different aspect of astrology so that by the end of the third session, you will have a complete review of astrology as a guide to your health, life balance, and life cycles. At the end of the third course, you will receive a certificate of completion.
  • April 20 – Maintaining Your Health Using Astrology As Your Guide
  • August 3 – The Keys to Balancing Your Life Using Astrology As Your Guide
  • October 12 – Astrological Cycles: The Timing of Your Life

While none of our astrology courses require a prerequisite, completing all three courses will earn you a certificate of completion.

How Do I Participate In an Online Mentored Course?


The day before your course starts, you will receive an e-mail from onlinelearning@edgarcayce.org detailing how to access and navigate your online classroom. You will also receive an invitation to join the workspace in PBWorks.

Once you're in the classroom, you will be able to visit your online classroom any time, day or night, 24/7, for the entire length of the course.  You may participate at your convenience from anywhere in the world. There are no specified times that you have to be in the room. You decide when and how often you wish to participate.

In the virtual classroom, you will have access to written and audio or video materials prepared for you by your mentor. Every Wednesday, your mentor will post a lesson along with exercises for you to practice during the week. Posting is very similar to sending an e-mail, except that all the messages are viewed within your virtual classroom. You may post your thoughts, questions, and experiences on the "wall" of your classroom for your mentor and fellow participants to read and respond to. In this way, everyone will benefit from one another's experiences and insights and the coaching offered by your mentor to individuals.
