We see our role as facilitators supporting you on your journey of remembering the deep wisdom embedded within your mind. Focusing on a deeply spiritual orientation, we explore the various philosophical weaves that exist within the modern practise of astrology, yet all the time focusing on a co-creative, choice centred, empowered and positive view of the cosmic dimension of your soul.
Aside from theoretical instruction, our classes are conducted through a mixture of interactive discussion, the use of visual images and music, meditation, some experiential (embodiment) work, reflective exercises and philosophical discussion. We actively encourage discussion and participation, along with the exchange of interpretation and the reading of a chart from the very beginning. Our classes contain lively sharing within what we believe to be a supporting, caring and friendly space.
During the first year the foundation of astrological theory is laid which will better enable you to both experience and remember the three times four fold structure of consciousness, as well as the planetary archetypes as they are expressed through those modes of consciousness. This course is extensive and covers all the basics of chart interpretation, providing you with a comprehensive platform to explore all astrologies.
During the second year, we will suspend theory and put into practice all that has been remembered during the foundational year, as we focus exclusively on interpreting, languaging and ‘reading’ charts.
Theory returns in the third year, as we advance deeper into understanding the energetic weave that exists between two people (in synastry), your ongoing psycho-spiritual development (transits and progressions) and your relationship to space (location). We will continues to put a strong emphasis on languaging and talking astrology without the use of the lingo, so that you can fluidly communicate what you are divining to those who are seeking your council.
During the fourth year, we will be focusing on a more in-depth interpretation as you bring together the various modules previously learnt for a more comprehensive and professional interpretation.
In addition to classes, the Blue Rose also runs workshops, lectures, research and study groups, as well as week-long overseas retreats, day trips to sacred sites and night walks under the stars, which anyone with an interest in astrology can join.
We are also allied with Caelestis School of Astrology in Utrecht, Holland and within whom we organise student exchange program.
Our focus extends beyond astrology and we have other guest speakers from around the world share their gnostic wisdom with our students, from sound healing, to angelic work, to theLaw of Light.
No accreditation exists in Ireland, but plans are in motion to offer certification to those who have completed courses in the Blue Rose. We offer, however, Certificates of Completion to those students (online, download and in person) who complete each year.
Given the prominence and reputation of both Andrew and Karen within the Irish astrology community and the healing community at large, the Blue Rose offers an extremely high standard of education in astrology, the quality of what we offer has enabled students to gain entrance into the Master’s Program in Lampster University in Wales on our recommendation. The Blue Rose is also acknowledged within the global astrology community of offering one of the highest standards of astrological education.
