Diamond Astrology online training



Module 1   – The Lunar Axis –  The Black Moon and Priapus

The minor Moon cycle

From the traditional astrology the Moon is known as a heavenly body with her various phases such as New Moon, the First and Last Quarter, Full Moon and the phases in between. These phases are visible in the sky by the varying positions between Sun, Moon and Earth. We know them as the Moon-phases. In the traditional astrology we are used to interpret only these phases where it concerns the Moon.

The major Moon cycle     


With the Metaphysical Luminaries we make use of another feature of the Moon’s orbit; the elliptical orbit. In this orbit the Moon reaches her furthest distance from Earth – the Black Moon – and a distance where she is closest to Earth – Priapus -. Both these points in the elliptical Moon cycle give important information of who we are beyond our personality; our Essential Self. This is the bigger part of our being where we have a connection with the cosmos in the way when we were born, but that became dormant a few years after our birth. The Apogee as the farthest distance is the Black Moon and the Perigee as the closest distance is Priapus. In addition to the lunar phases of the minor Moon cycle these points of the Lunar axis  – Black Moon and  Priapus – have a major influence on our personal lives and can be located easily in the birth chart. In the first module all positions of the Black Moon and of Priapus in house and sign will be discussed. Also the important individual process of the Lunar axis is discussed in detail as a birthing process of our Essential Self. The Cosmic Birth Channel is highlighted in this module, together with the difference between the Mean Black Moon and the Osculating Black Moon.

Module 2   – The Solar Axis –The Black Sun and the Diamond

Like the Lunar Axis (Black Moon and Priapus), the Solar Axis (Black Sun and Diamond) too represents a life process of expanding consciousness of our Essential Self. The Black Moon is the solar Moon of our higher self or Essential Self, the Black Sun is the lunar Sun of our Essential Self. Both represent an important theme how to transcend the boundaries of the personality and so that we can begin to experience ourselves as creative cosmic beings. The path from the Black Sun to the Diamond is highly topical in this time of shifting from the old 3D world to the 5D new energy. The more we purify ourselves from old conditioned lunar energy and start to live from our divine inner core – The Black Moon – the more we open up to make our inner Diamond shine into this world. The Solar Axis is an enriching astrological guide on this path.

Module 3   – The Axis of Extremes –  Dragon and Beast

THE NODAL CROSS                                                                                                                          The Axis of Extremes is an addition to the Nodal axis; the North and South Node.  Thus we come to a full understanding of the total of the Nodal Cross: North Node, South Node, Dragon and Beast. The North Node represents our personal life purpose, the South Node is our emotional imprinting of the past. The core creation of life consists of two poles that attract each other like magnets in a perpetual evolutionary dance: energy (or consciousness) and matter. The Beast and the Dragon represent energy and matter respectively, each working to extremes in a process from primal energy to perfect form. Dragon and Beast are immediately connected with the North and South Node. Together with the South and North Node they form the total of the Nodal Cross. The Nodal Cross is an indispensable tool to combine the Lunar and Solar Axis and will give the fuller picture of Diamond Astrology. The four poles of the Nodal Cross, as an evolutionary process to master matter, ánd the four poles of the Solar and Lunar Axes, to birth divine consciousness, offer a brilliant combination to interpret the chart to a 5D level.

Module 4   – Fusing Diamond and Traditional Astrology


In these lessons you will learn to combine the 9 principles of Diamond Astrology: Black Moon, Priapus, Black Sun, Diamond, North Node, South Node, Dragon, Beast and the Part of Fortune. Also you will learn to fuse these principles with the traditional chart. You will learn how to interpret the aspects of these 9 points among themselves, for example Black Moon conjunct Black Sun, Priapus conjunct Diamond, etc. In addition, Pluto and Chiron are discussed and you learn how to work with them in Diamond Astrology. Practical examples are discussed and the difference between Lilith and the Black Moon is also discussed. The aspects of the planets with the Metaphysical Luminaries are discussed, among other things, in Module 5 and 6.


After having followed these 4 basic modules, the student will receive a Certificate of Participation. This does not require an exam. Examination can be taken after having followed Module 5 and 6.


Module 5 – The Black and the White contents in conflict and in harmony. Aspects between planets and Luminaries. Core Theme. Practice.

The first four Modules of Diamond Astrology provide a basic knowledge of the Luminaries of Diamond Astrology in which the four cosmic axes are discussed in each module. Module 5 and Module 6 provide a further training of deepening the knowledge and learning to apply this in practice. In this Module 5 you will learn how to discern the core theme of the chart. Also you will learn how to work with the major aspects: sextile, trine, square and opposition between the black and white luminaries. Every aspect that a planet receives from a Metaphysical Luminary will have an impact on that planet. Also you will learn in what way the white contents of the chart relates to the black contents and how to give to right diagnosis of the birthing process of the Essential Self. Module 5 and 6 provide interactive practical trainings as well, which the student will need as an indispensable part of the learning process of the Diamond Astrology training.

Module 6 – Deepening the White and the Black layer. Composite and Synastry. Progressions and Transits. Practice.

Module 6 provides a training to read the Diamond Astrology relation chart. Since most of the Metaphysical Luminaries become active in the second half of life it is of great importance to apply the Luminaries in the relation chart in order to give a truthful diagnosis of the relationship. Both the composite and synastry are discussed during this Module 6. You will work with this in theory and in interactive practical lessons. Forming an idea of the near future with a view to the unfolding process of the Essential Self will enrich the information of the DA chart. The Diamond Astrology training must include the Progressions and Transits of the Luminaries as well which will be discussed during the last two lessons.


After completing Module 5 and 6 the student can apply for an examination to obtain the diploma of Certified Diamond Astrologer. The student must also have a good knowledge of basic astrology.

(Positions from 12.05 pm till 12.05 pm. From left to right: Mean Black Moon – Osculating Black Moon – Priapus – Black Sun – Diamond/ The last two columns are the positions of Persephone and Vulcanus but these will not be discussed since they are not part of the Metaphysical Luminaries) Have some patience with uploading …



Each of the nine luminaries can be located in one of the twelve houses and one of the twelve zodiac signs. These luminaries can make mutual aspects, not only with each other, but also with the planets, the house-cusps, etc. The nine luminaries  should always be interpreted in combination with the contents of the traditional chart.
Furthermore it must be stated that five of the luminaries will become of influence by the second half of life: the Black Moon, the Diamond, the North Node, the Dragon and the Part of Fortune.

Each of these luminaries is derived from the orbit of the Sun and the Moon, the two main luminaries in the chart. None of the luminaries is a visible heavenly body in the universe. In this context many astrologers are already familiar to work with the North and South Node and the Part of Fortune.
