Using Evolutionary Astrology as a tool for Self-Insight and Personal Transformation

12 Steps to Mastery

New Online Course

Integrating, embodying and empowering the emotional body using the tools of Evolutionary Astrology

An immersive, experiential study of the lunar nodal axis in our birth charts. The lunar nodal axis dominates our consciousness and provides deep insight into the character and dynamics of our emotional body and therefore our conscious and unconscious narratives, imprints, beliefs, choices, patterns and behaviour. Understanding this specific feature and how to achieve mastery of it, provides valuable insight and guidance on living our life in an integrated, embodied and empowered way.

"To find our truest selves, we must be willing to go by many ways we do not know in order to get lost to the comfort of our old accumulated identities" Gerald May

Learning what mastery of the lunar nodal axis in our birth charts looks like and how to get there, has been structured into a 12 Step process. Each Step engages and challenges our creativity and imagination for an immersive, deep dive into our lived and felt experience. Each Step has a learning dimension related to Evolutionary Astrology and the Lunar Nodal Axis, a practical application dimension integrating the knowledge symbolically interpreting our own birth charts, as well as a writing dimension reifying and externalising in order to extract, refine and reframe our narratives and stories.


The 12 Step process is a combination treasure hunt and archaeological dig. We mine, excavate and recreate where we are coming from, what we need to learn, what mastery looks like and how to get there. We sleuth our own lives for clues about what is standing in our way to growth and mastery.

Our birth charts are as unique as our fingerprints, as is our level of consciousness and readiness for change. We read our own map and follow our own path at our own perfect rhythm and pulse. We are our own best self-healing super-power (Thomas Hubl).

Fears, wounds and false beliefs keep us in life-limiting patterns of behaviour. Self-insight and management of our triggers liberates us from a fated outcome. Trauma splits our psyche robbing us of pleasure and integration connects and empowers us to realise "I am another you". Powerful minds enable us to get perspective but can also separate us from an emotionally integrated perspective, alienating ourselves and others. We can chronically choose comfort over change and end up stagnating and unhappy despite having it all. Choosing what to keep and how to let go, creates space for change and growth in our lives.

Jupiter Trine e-Learning Portal

The 12 Steps to Mastery course content is available on the jupitertrine.co.za e-learning portal (website). Once you've booked your place on the course, you'll be registered on Jupiter Trine and enrolled as a course attendee. You will then receive an email with a link to access the portal and course.


The 12 Steps drive the 12 week course. We'll cover one Step a week, giving you time to process, digest and assimilate the course material and personal insights. I model each Step using my own birth chart. At the end of the Step, we'll meet online in our weekly group meeting (Zoom) to explore questions related to the Step, share insights and build a conscious, supportive, healing "we-space". Weekly group meeting (Zoom) dates and times for the 12 weeks will be published once bookings close. All weekly Zoom meetings are recorded and available to view for a week if you cannot attend the group meeting live.


The Group Discussion Forum on the portal is available for questions and support between weekly group meetings.

Richelle Steyn has recently launched the e-learning portal called Jupiter Trine (jupitertrine.co.za). Her first online course 12 Steps to Mastery is focused on activating our self-healing capacity to integrate, embody, empower and heal our own emotional bodies. She has a post graduate degree in Psychology and a Post Graduate Diploma in Community Psychological Practice, both from the University of Johannesburg.


Richelle is a certified Evolutionary Astrologer practicing locally and globally using the philosophy of Evolutionary Astrology together with other modalities for self-insight, empowerment and transformation. In 2013/4 she created and ran a 2 day personal empowerment experience for women called Journey into the Underground Forest. Her latest 12 Steps to Mastery course is another immersive, experiential, deep dive into our inner world, this time using astrology and our birth charts as symbolic guides.


Richelle is as passionate about nature and mother earth as she is about humanity. Her Lower Silvermine River walk opens a conversation about our complex cohabitation relationship with nature and the wild. Richelle volunteers locally during the breeding cycles of the endangered Western Leopard Toad to help communicate and support this complex, vulnerable relationship.
