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


12 Steps to Mastery (13 Week Online Course)

12 Steps to Mastery is a remarkable journey of self-discovery that has allowed me to move into a deeper connection with who I really am. It has enabled me to tell my life’s story in an authentic and unique way. I exercised “muscles” I never thought I had, using my active imagination to shift my awareness and explored depths I could never have imagined. This is a beautiful empowering process. I can see where I am in my life and the direction I need to go in order to achieve my soul’s purpose.


Having no previous experience in astrology, I appreciated the accessible way in which the course was structured as well as Richelle’s ability to teach complex ideas in a way I could understand and relate to. What was invaluable for me was the practical application with Richelle sharing processes from her own life allowing me to find meaning in the symbolism and integrating it into my personal experience.


When I started the course I feared exploring my emotions. Now I have the tools and the confidence to continue this process on my own, excited to see where it will lead me.”

The 12 Steps to Mastery course is 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.

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 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.

The 12 Steps drive the 13 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. The Group Discussion Forum on the portal is available to get help if you need it and post your response to the weekly group review questions. At the end of the Step, we meet online in our weekly group meeting (Zoom) to share insights and build "community". All weekly Zoom meetings are recorded and available to view for a week if you cannot attend the group meeting live.​
