The Language of the Stars

An Initiation into the Wisdom of Astrology


Part 2


Go beyond astrological fundamentals: reveal the ways we co-create our everyday reality with universal energies. 

You have all the rhythms of the universe within you.

Sometimes you sense planets causing unknown but strongly felt tensions in your world, or you commiserate with friends about the plethora of synchronicities suddenly showing up around you. 

So often our culture’s way of being — with its over-focus on physical appearance and material gain, misses the subtler messages contained in our everyday experiences on this planet.

And yet, there is a knowing you have: a sense of the interconnected pattern within the ebb and flow of events and relationships that extends beyond this small moment and into the realm of the celestial. This has been particularly true during the profound shifts of the past several months.

Standing under the clear night sky, it's easy to feel part of something bigger: a deeper connection to the planetary bodies engaging in their constant dance around our sun.


Consciously working with the ancient language of Astrology offers us the tools we need to uncover the deeper mysteries of the universe we live in and that live within us. As we explore ever further, we continue to reveal the rich tapestry that forms the reality we co-create together with that universal energy in every moment.


Join-in as we build on the fundamentals of this profoundly magical and infinitely practical ancient language together. This next level course offers you tools and techniques to deepen your astrological exploration. 

Knowing how to interpret the symbols you can:

• See where and how your strengths and abilities can best serve you

• Gain clarity around your unique capacities to navigate life’s difficulties

• Better understand your karmic lessons and opportunities

• Begin to work more consciously with your soul’s intentions

• Learn how and when to relax into planetary energies for your benefit

• Become aware of and align to the patterns of co-creation for manifestation

After these 7 classes you will have the tools and techniques to begin to interpret and engage with the nuances and depth of meaning that is written in the stars.

Prerequisite: Stars course level 1 or an understanding of the meaning of planets, signs, houses, aspects and rulership.

Valanne is beautifully skilled at making something complicated become comprehensible. Wanting to have a basic understanding of astrology, I signed up for the Language of the Stars course. Valanne's depth of knowledge was woven with her compassion for her students and her passion for the material. I highly recommend her course to a newbie like me or for someone wanting to dive deeper and expand their understanding.

I’ve always been intrigued by astrology but each time I tried to delve into it, I was overwhelmed by the amount of information. Valanne’s astrology course was the perfect introduction! I loved the pace and the ability to ask questions along the way.
