Soul Level Astrology Three Year Certification Program
Begins Fall 2019
Join Master Astrologer Mark Borax and a wild gang of mystics as we take a journey into the mysteries of the soul via the Soul Level Astrology Certification program. Meet Mark and learn more about the program during this upcoming introductory Q & A call (details above).
Soul Level Astrology's roots are in the pioneering 20th Century astrology movement of Dane Rudyhar and Marc Edmund Jones, who fundamentally shifted the understanding of astrology from a fixed system of meanings, back to an organic, living system where the stars come alive. It draws upon the illuminating insights of visionary astrologer Ellias Lonsdale and Mark's 30 years experience practicing with the tools he's learned and developed.

course description and more student testimonials below. The classes will be held over the video conference/telephone with
in-person sessions each year. More information on the upcoming Level I class and a past syllabus can be found
Certification Course Description
This hands-on training course is led by Mark Borax, assisted by program graduates Marcella Eversole and Alejandra Salvado, to teach you to study birth charts the magical visionary way Mark was taught in his seven-year apprenticeship with Ellias Lonsdale. Through trust, intimacy, supplementary reading, lecture and discussion, you will not only make sense of the birth chart, but also explore a profound new way to grasp life itself. By the end of the program you'll be qualified to interpret the hidden dimensions of human beings through the birth chart, and be certified by The College of Visionaries & Wizards to practice Soul Level Astrology.
Semesters run from September through January, and February through May. Eac h class is recorded as an mp3 or video file you can download in case you miss a class or wish to hear it again. In addition, we'll use the email discussion group to explore subjects we don't have time for in class.
Optional In-Person Weekends
There will be one optional in-person session during each semester, hosted at our home with no extra charge, (except your travel and lodging.) Many students carpool from the airport and stay in the same hotel to reduce expenses and socialize. These in-person events become the high point for each level.
Level 1: Soul Level Astrology Basics
In the first semester you'll learn the unique vocabulary of Star Genesis, which is the basis for Soul Level Astrology, by applying it to class charts, which are the only charts we'll use during the course.
Star Genesis is a system discovered by Ellias Lonsdale in his dream of Atlantis in the late 1970s. This is a vast system for tracking the soul through birth, death and beyond, that Mark was trained in during the apprenticeship described in his book, 2012: Crossing the Bridge to the Future. Soul Level Astrology is the form of star work Mark created in 1987, which uses the birth chart as a window to the soul, and leans heavily on Star Genesis.
This first semester introduces the two main components of Star Genesis, which are the 4 Directions of Crown, Root, Inbreath and Outbreath, and the 12 Lifestreams, connected to the Houses, Aspects and Signs. We'll also study the Moon Phases, Stars of Destiny, and Dharmic Currents, ways for tracking the growth of the soul through life.
Level 2: The Building Blocks of Soul Level Astrology
Now that we've learned a common language we'll grasp the tools needed to begin practicing Soul Level Astrology: Planets, Signs, and Chart Shapes, which will enable you to identify Key Planets. You'll begin to learn how to weigh and blend diverse chart factors. To help you practice chart reading we'll draw buddy matches from a blind pull, linking you with another student whose chart you can become familiar with, along with your own.
Level 3: Deepening Your Studies
Mark will introduce his Step-by-Step list of chart interpretation. We'll also study Oriental Animal Years, Planets Conjunct Angles and Nodes, Atlantean Numerology, Birth Cards, and Review the Houses.
Level 4: Putting It All Together
In this crucial semester, the accent is on synthesizing what we've already learned, with only three new subjects added: cosmic number (Atlantean numerology), birth cards, and timing cycles. The remaining classes will focus on Mark's step-by-step chart interpretation list.
Level 5 & 6: TBA
Special In-Person Class Subjects:

Mark's knowledge and most important, his uncanny ability to communicate on psychic, emotive and experiential levels brings this material to life for us and through us. He is a patient and attentive listener, who seeks the gems in each student's offering. Then, he facets those gems to shine a light on the next step in our mystical education."
"I signed up for the class three summers ago with the intention of becoming a practicing astrologer. After a year of intimacy and connection with Mark, Marcella, and my eleven fellow classmates, I have come to understand that my original intention has taken a back seat to an overarching intention to become who I really am in my innermost being, to come into alignment with my prenatal resolves, and to radiate my truth outward into the world. Everything else will take care of itself."
---Bill Strider, 62
"Unlike other systems of astrology I have studied, the magic of this one lies beyond the mentalization and the calculation. I feel it calling a deeper, energetic part of me to tune into a stream of insight and translate heart presence from that stream. It is hard to explain in words the value of being ordained into accessing an Akashic record of starry connection."
--Michael Troy, 30
