The book will help round out the education of the student, but is not essential for the course. Samuel will also supply additional materials for the course.

Class Syllabus

An assignment will be given after each class and students will e-mail their completed work about three days prior to the next class (Sunday night or Monday morning, at the latest). I will also email a recording of each class to all enrolled students. Since every registrant will get a recording of the class, whether in attendance or not, there are no make-up classes or monetary compensation for missed classes.

A public, weekly office hour for questions or concerns on Tuesdays at 12-1 pm EDT. Practicums are classes specially designated for practice or to dive deeper into the material covered.

I have taken many private astrology classes with Samuel and I can say that his readings are always insightful and straight to the point. Samuel truly cares about his clients and you can tell that he loves what he does. If you want someone that is honest, knowledgeable, organized, and accurate, Samuel is the astrologer to go to. He is one of the best, if not the best, astrologer out there.
