    Apprentice Program Locations — Northern California

    Northern California Apprentice Program

    Northern California Apprentice Program

    *Note: The Mountain Home Ranch, the original home of the Northern California program, was burned in the 2017 fires. The program has relocated to its new location at Earthrise Retreat Center, Petaluma, CA.


    Qualifications for joining the NoCal Apprenticeship Program

    Before attending we recommend that you have a basic understanding of the meanings of signs, planets, houses. We strongly suggest that you read The Inner Sky and either listen to or watch the Introduction to Evolutionary Astrology course before attending.

    The program is comprised of every level of astrologer from the beginner to advanced and professional, so anyone can feel welcome. Steven’s style of Evolutionary Astrology attracts a wide range of practitioners.

    How will the Apprenticeship Program Benefit Me?

    Many students in the program have established private astrological practices, though you need not feel out of place if that isn’t your goal. It is perfectly acceptable for someone to attend the program purely for purposes of personal growth. But if you do intend to set up shop as a professional astrologer, this program will prepare you to be successful. Good astrology helps people. Our ultimate aim is to maximize that benefit to the human community. The Apprentice Program is offered so that you can learn how to most usefully present astrology to clients in a counseling context, or with family and friends.
