Kerrie, I have such fantastic memories of learning astrology from you, and of you in general.

You are a brilliant teacher and researcher.
You are a brilliant interpreter of astrology.”

Thank you, Kerrie, sooooo much. I am so glad I followed my spirit’s calling back in 1991 when I saw the ad for your course in a shop window.

Best decision I ever made!”


You are an amazing teacher and a true pioneer!”


Quizzes along the way
to keep you Thinking

Intelligent Quizzes to help you think laterally and critically about the things you’re learning. I won’t treat you like a dummy.

Every time you learn something new, your brain develops new synaptic connections. This course will definitely help that process, and I guarantee you will be learning new things all the way through, along with new approaches to how you can see your life.

Build your Confidence

You will be learning to see yourself in a more positive light, with a view to how every aspect of your Being can be expressed for a Higher Purpose.

No dark psychology from old pop-astrology. This will be a refreshing and uplifting experience. When you see yourself from the perspective of your spiritual consciousness, rather than your habitual ego-nature, your confidence and your opportunities will blossom.

See your Goals clearly

Understanding the Inherent Goals you brought in with you to this Incarnation will allow you to find the perfect and relevant expressions for those goals.

The framework of your life is not random. There is a pattern to all things. You do have a Destiny. Your astrology chart is a map of frequencies that have ‘wired’ your brain with all you need. Reading that map gives you greater clarity and Purpose.

Series of Courses

The courses listed here are just the beginning. Once you sign up for a course, or to my email list, you will be kept up to date with my new courses, book series, podcast episodes, & inspirational merchandise coming soon.

The New Basics: The Point of View of Your Spirit (not your ego!)

This is an ESSENTIAL module that is offered at the start of this astrology and mind course series. It will give you a sound foundation in this new system of synthesis and interpretation based on my 35 years of clinical research, and 45 years of studies.
After you’ve completed this course, you can start with of any of these other courses, in any order, being able to apply them to practical use, though I have listed them in a practical order for you. Though, I would suggest the asteroid courses should follow the more practical earlier ones listed here. (New detailed course page coming soon!)

Mastering Your Mars for Managing Emotions

What are emotions? We begin with an exposé of the origin of emotions based on my research of the astrological resonances that affect your brain in the areas that are involved in emotional disturbances. How you can use your personal Mars dynamics to mature your emotional reactions and better understand them, retraining your brain in the process. Several key planets are explained in-depth for a deeper understanding of emotion. (This is a fuller exposé of the presentation I’d given to the Sydney Astrological Research Society in 2014.) (New course page coming soon!)

Charting Your Astrological brain

How did your brain develop uniquely? And how do the various areas of your brain interact — as the tools for your consciousness. Your brain is not the source of your consciousness, yet Astrology involves your brain, both at birth and in real time throughout your life, as your brain is evolving with each passing moment of consciousness. This is why genuine astrology is interpreted uniquely for each individual. This is entirely new research born from the past few decades of my clinical work.

The Part of Fortune & Its Parts

A new interpretation of the Part of Fortune (an ancient Arabic Astrological phenomenon) and the interactions between the parts of the chart that create this ‘symbolic’ Point, leading to your higher expression in the world.

Chiron is Not the Problem—It's the Answer

This also involves a practical use of the asteroids in your birth chart, related to your higher life purpose — find your Spirit’s motivation for your career potential. (A fuller explanation of Chiron based on a presentation I’d given to the Sydney Astrological Research Society in 2020.)

The Arts in Your Chart

This is a practical use of the asteroids in your birth chart that are associated with the creative planetary & Sign  configurations, related to all the major arts — find your Talent potential. An expanded exposé based on a presentation I’d given to the Wollongong branch of the Federation of Australian Astrologers in 2011.

The Asteroid Course — scheduled for 2022

Introduction to using Asteroids in astrology. How hundreds of them can tell your pastlife stories and present potentials in your birthchart. The following Asteroid courses will each focus on a particular theme, or ‘collection’ of asteroids.

The Asteroid Series Part #1 — scheduled for 2022

More on a particular theme within the Asteroid Collections to fill in the ‘body-text’ of your birth chart. (The particular Collection is yet to be decided.)

The Asteroid Series Part #2 — Scheduled for 2022

The most important asteroids to check in your chart for your personal spiritual development.

The Source of Imposter Syndrome — Scheduled for 2022

This is an advanced view of the prefrontal cortex from a specialised astrological phenomenon, and will be more beneficial for you when some asteroid studies have been completed in the previous courses.

I first met Kerrie [Redgate] in 1993 and was initiated into Astrology.

She did a natal (or birth) chart for me, interpreting it from a present and past life perspective, incorporating Buddhist philosophy.

It was one of those ‘Oh My God’ (OMG) moments!

It was not only a life-changing experience but set me forth on a new path of deeper spiritual understanding in life — basically it was an indescribable but enlightening experience.

I then studied with Kerrie for one year in 1994. The class [course] was a very well structured 4-semester intensive program.

… Kerrie is leading the field in a lifetime quest…


Beyond the Black Stump of Eternity | David Shaun Larsen (book cover)

excerpt from his book,
Beyond the Black Stump of Eternity


Do these courses cover the basics?

YES. THE NEW BASICS course is recommended as the start for you, to introduce you to this new system. Don’t worry, you will be taken through every step, and with the philosophy behind it, so you’ll understand more deeply. Even if you’re a seasoned professional astrologer, this is a new approach with a new type of interpretation that is more spiritually based, but in a pragmatic way.

Do I need to buy all the courses, and in order?

NO. You are free to choose only the topics that interest you, in any order, and to take the courses at your own pace. But you MUST start with THE NEW BASICS course, as that is the foundation course for the entire system. 

Are there graded exams?

NO. These courses are designed for you as an individual, to help you expand your awareness of yourself in the world, and to help you understand other people more profoundly. You will see potentials everywhere. But there will be Quizzes to help you gauge your own understanding of the information in stages.
My lengthier Yogacara Astrology Course is being re-developed from my original in-house (pre-internet) courses, for your use of astrology professionally.

Do these courses overlap with your Yogacara Astrology course material?

The Exceptional Purpose series of courses will be a prerequisite to the Yogacara Astrology course which will build on that information, and which will relate more deeply to the Buddhist Yogacara Doctrine of Mind where the focus is on you being able to use this knowledge professionally to benefit others. So, you have a choice as to how far you want to go with theses studies.

Is there a discount if I buy the Yogacara Astrology course later?

No, as the Exceptional Purpose course series will be the foundation series for the Yogacara Course, which will go deeper into Mind. But you will still have online access to the Exceptional Purpose courses you have already completed.

How do I pay for the courses?

I use Stripe for online credit and debit card processing (VISA, MasterCard, AMEX, JCB, and UnionPay, which also includes Apple Pay and Google Pay on your devices). When the courses are live, there will be a payment button and form for you on each course page, linked from this page.

Can I pay with PayPal?

NO, I’m sorry. I don’t have a PayPal account, and I’ve found Stripe to be a fabulous service for secure international card processing on a number of my websites. Their support is also terrific and very swift.
