“Emily opens the doors to the cosmos with her vast knowledge and her gift of eloquent interpretation. Working with Emily has brought me a deeper understanding of how astrology works and how our connections to astrology and spirit affect us all on a daily level.” – Brandie Taylor, 2012 Alcyone graduate
Alcyone is the brightest star of the Pleiades, and in ancient mystical traditions, the Central Spiritual Sun around which our solar system revolves.
Astrology is the language of the stars, reconnecting us with cosmic wisdom and opening a portal to higher dimensions. When we study and practice astrology, we draw on teachings from a much greater source than our own human experience in this lifetime.
Engaged astrology means that we work with the cosmic science as a tool for healing, growth and empowerment, supporting individual and collective evolution. Our approach is grounded, practical and relevant, bridging Earth and Heaven.
“Emily’s apprenticeship program has been a wonderful experience – giving us great factual information, much practice and an implicit ‘BELIEVE’ that we would blossom as astrologers.” – Christine Cook, 2012 Alcyone graduate
The Alcyone apprenticeship program is designed for students of astrology who want to work with clients professionally. Candidates for the program should already have, at minimum, a basic understanding of planets, signs and houses.
This is a two-year program in which we meet for six months of each year. The first year, April 16-October 15 of 2013, covers the Foundations of Astrology – an in-depth review of the elements, modalities, signs, planets, houses and aspects AND how to put all these together to interpret a birth chart.
In the second year (during a similar time period in 2014), students will learn how to work with “prediction” techniques – transits and progressions – to identify the meaning and purpose of this moment in time, the available cosmic energies and how to best work with them, and the evolutionary patterns reflected in planetary cycles.
Throughout the program we’ll be working with live “practice clients,” both in the group and outside of class. Our focus will be communicating in clear, relevant and useful language, and supporting the client’s healing and empowerment.

“My apprenticeship with Emily helped me put together the scattered pieces of information about astrology accumulated over years of independent study. With her Virgoan organizational skills combined with her Gemini flair for communication, every class opened new doors of understanding. She has definitely discovered the perfect mix of interactive collaborative teaching and hands-on case study analysis to provide the ultimate learning experience. I would recommend her Alcyone School to anyone hoping to gain clarity and confidence as a professional astrologer or in furthering their knowledge and understanding of the art.” – Loren MccRory, 2012 Alcyone graduate
