The Professional Astrology Course

Developed by Goswami Kriyananda, Founder and Spiritual Preceptor of the Temple of Kriya Yoga

Open to all regardless of current skill level in the Science of Astrology

Study From Anywhere at Your Own Pace


This 24-month self-study program enables you to start wherever you are in your astrology studies – novice or experienced student – and gain the skills necessary to become a practicing astrologer. Goswami Kriyananda draws upon his 60 years of experiences as a master astrologer to share the skills, knowledge, insights and deep secrets of the science of astrology.

Astrology is a spiritual tool for self-improvement. It is a technique for guiding yourself and others to greater self-awareness and free will. It is also the art of proper timing. Special lessons on astrological counseling will teach you how to use astrology as both a predictive and spiritual tool for your clients. Practical professional advice on building an astrological practice is also provided.


This self study program is divided into three parts. Each part includes 20 lessons which incorporate both recorded and written material. There are 40 or more recordings to stream or download in MP3 format within each part. You will also have supplemental material such as flash cards, study guides, horoscope examples, reading assignments, homework and an independent study project to support and facilitate your learning.

There will also be monthly live conference calls or webinars with Temple instructors, who are also experienced astrologers, on a variety of astrology topics, plus time for questions and answers on the course content. The calls will be recorded and posted online for those who cannot attend real time. The instructors will provide additional online support and contact regarding the course, monitor your progress and grade the online exams. They will also provide feedback on your independent study project which is assigned in Part 3.

Self-evaluation tests will help you prepare for the online tests which are submitted for grading by the course instructors. In this way, you can ensure that you have mastered each unit before moving on to the next one.

  • More than 120 MP3 audio recordings

  • Printed lessons in PDF format to support the recordings

  • Special transcripts from Sri Goswami Kriyananda’s teaching library
