“Adam Elenbaas's astrology class gave me an incredibly grounded and thorough foundation. While astrology can feel like a dense topic, the class atmosphere was fun, friendly, and interactive — even as an online course. I frequently revisit the course material. Each time, I gain new practical knowledge and spiritual insight.”
— Marlena T.
Meet your instructor...
I’m Adam Elenbaas. I teach people how to interpret the language of astrology and read birth charts as a way to share insight into daily life.
Since opening my practice in 2010, I've completed over 10,000 birth chart readings and led more than 2500 students through my natal and horary astrology programs. Many of my students have gone on to cultivate dedicated professional practices.
My personal practice sprang from my studies of ayahuasca shamanism spanning more than 10 years and 100 ceremonies. Upon discovering deep meaning in the patterns of the sky, I began consulting formal teachers, who taught me the practical history, craft, and philosophy of astrology.
I now weave aspects from my diverse spiritual and traditional studies into my courses and apprenticeships. My goal is to give you, my students, a practical and spiritual platform from which to view and practice astrology in the world today.
Interested in learning the language of the stars through the First-Year Astrology Certification Course?
“I was blown away by the breadth and depth of knowledge Adam Elenbaas presents in his course. What really made the learning process extraordinary was his deep commitment to helping us understand not just the mechanics of astrology, but the beauty and genius of it. I left knowing and appreciating much more than I ever could have gleaned by reading books on my own.”
— Dave J.
By the end of this course, you'll have a solid foundation in ancient Hellenistic natal astrology and mystical philosophy.

How do I get my certification?

What if I’m unable to finish the course? Do you offer refunds?

I have a different question.
You can send any reading-related questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get back to you within several business days.
Who have you studied with?
My study of yoga and astrology began in the depths of countless visionary experiences while studying ayahuasca shamanism over the course of more than 10 years and 100 ceremonies. I consider this my first and primary teacher of astrology.
In a more traditional sense, my most impactful astrology teachers and influences include Rebecca Gordon, Christopher King, Geoffrey Cornelius, John Frawley, Robert Schmidt, Chris Brennan, Liz Greene, Richard Tarnas, James Hillman, Demetra George, Deborah Houlding, James Holden, Steven Forrest, and too many others to name!
I’ve been studying astrology for years. Do I have to start with your first-year course?
Typically, I require students who have never studied Hellenistic astrology to begin with my year one program before enrolling in my other courses.
However, if you have a proven period of focused study or training specifically in Hellenistic astrology, you can email me at email@example.com to ask about an exception.
