Diana Collis Fast Track Astrology Online

Levels 1, 2 and 3 are each 8-week courses organised as building blocks to consolidate learning as you go. The astrology taught within the closed email group online teaching format combines a state-of-the-art modern approach with sound traditional grounding – plus insights into the real-life experience of an intuitive reader with her own 17 year old private practice.

[From Level 1 face-to-face 6-week course]
"Having been fascinated by Astrology (and Astronomy) for some time, I enrolled on the Fast Track Astrology Course in order to learn more about the subject and to provide some more insight into the Astrology-Tarot connection. However, I soon found myself becoming more and more interested in the subject as Diana (Collis, our tutor) revealed how intriguing, compelling and complex Astrology actually is. The more I learned - the more I wanted to know. Diana's in-depth knowledge and experience of the subject is admirable and her style of teaching makes every lesson fun. There is a lot packed in to the face-to-face Level 1 course and I found it supportive to commit to doing the homework and do the suggested outside reading - none of which is a problem, of course, when you are enjoying learning about something!"
      Lori Hampson, Surrey

[Feedback from FTAO Level 2; Online Course- from 4 participants]
"I loved this course! Each week we had beautifully written lessons, jammed packed with so much information, which I definitely appreciated. The teacher is brilliant! I really enjoyed the ease of her writing style. The material was taught so well that I quickly understood the lessons. The teacher was very patient, kind and very encouraging in her teaching style with the students and, if I had a question, she was very approachable. I felt confident she knew the answer. I started off knowing just a few basic principles, and now I understand quite a bit about astrology. I thought I would be a bit intimidated, but I never felt that way. It's amazing how far I've come and what I was given.... at a price I could afford. I got more than what I paid for, and not for one moment have I regretted this course. I cannot express my gratitude thoroughly enough, thanks!"
      Chanel Bayless

"Diana's in-depth knowledge of astrology shines through in her excellent responses to work we carried out. I recommend this course as extremely good value for money if you have a enough time on your hands to really work with it."
      Emma Sunerton-Burl

"I felt that Fast Track Astrology Level 2 followed on very well from the Level 1 course. I did think that I had a slight advantage over some of the other students as I had completed Level 1 whereas they hadn’t. I found this online course to be an excellent way of expanding my knowledge of Astrology. It has obviously been well thought out and has had a vast amount of research put into it. This, coupled with Diana’s experience in Astrology and Tarot has made it a worthwhile and valuable course to have completed. I particularly enjoyed the feedback from Diana and the camaraderie and comments of the other course pupils. I give 10/10 for the presentation of the course; it has been very enjoyable".
      Lori Hampson

"It’s the first Astrology course I’ve done so it was very exciting. I liked the kind of open approach Diana has so that I felt able to work from where I was at with my patchy knowledge. The first week made a terrific impression on me and each following week seemed to bring in amazing stuff. Very exciting and mentally very challenging at times but I’ve certainly progressed because of it. I liked all of the course content, but perhaps especially linking the decans with my chart and the Tarot, getting into the capsule interpretation as a way into a chart, putting a toe in the water with Transits and learning more about my own chart. I really like Diana’s style. It feels warm, easy and friendly and open to different ways of seeing things. Things were clearly explained and Diana replied to email questions promptly. I was very comfortable on this course. I think you could do a whole course on any of the lessons but, if you spent more time it would lose the *wow* factor that I felt as each week brought something really exciting and interesting. As it was called “Fast Track”, it lived up to that. I think everyone interested in astrology should do Diana’s course!"

[Feedback from FTA Level 1 Course: Face to Face class locally - from 3 participants]
"I felt this course certainly delivered what it said it would and made astrology much clearer. I enjoyed learning about the tarot connection and the different houses and planets. I thought the teacher was lovely: very helpful and positive and encouraging. She didn't make me feel at all self-conscious or silly when I didn't understand something."

"The Level 1 Fast Track Astrology course allows you to feel like you've learned a basic foundation in astrology without feeling overwhelmed."
      Juli Arthurs

"I thoroughly enjoyed the classes - they went too fast! It was great to be involved with people with a shared interest. I really enjoyed working on my own chart and gaining a greater understanding of myself."

Online Thoth Deck Training Course

Emma This is an experiential course and is designed for those who have some experience with a tarot deck, though not necessarily the Thoth. Our approach is from a psychological perspective, and an intuitive angle, using visualisation into cards to gain our own information.

Semele We will look at personal blocks to using the Thoth and there will be quite a bit of personal work. Also we will cover developing your intuition with the Thoth. You will benefit from individual tuition as well as the group environment, sharing what you learn and know with each other. It is a 16 week course, and has breaks over any school holidays. Courses start in Sept and Mar time.

For more information on the course content and the tutors see Online Thoth Tarot Course on my website or contact Emma direct on .

"I really do value hugely the insights that you offered in your comments as ever, thank you so much for your time, your insight and your sensitivity. I had been intimidated by Thoth since buying it three years ago, and whilst feeling a powerful attraction to it, shelved it as 'too difficult' to turn into a working deck. Emma's course enabled me to develop a powerful, respectful and loving relationship with Thoth and I will be using it as a working deck very soon. What made the difference? Emma's deep love and knowledge of Thoth, and her creation of a sensitive, as well as challenging, learning environment in which I felt I could take risks and stretch myself. That was what made the difference. Thanks Emma, I owe you one!"       Phil Croft

"I feel your feedback was superb. I felt constantly supported and able to express myself without fear of ridicule. Each exercise followed on well from the previous one and they were varied and interesting. This course has been really enjoyable and I have learned a huge amount about using the Thoth. I have also gained a lot of confidence in myself in general and have a deeper understanding of the current issues in my life. Emma's constantly positive feedback has helped my confidence in reading the cards enormously. I would recommend this course to anyone that wants to develop their skills with the Thoth. Thank you Emma"

Introduction to Tarot, courses

Mick Mick writes:
'I regularly run weekend "Introduction to Tarot" courses in Manchester.

The course runs from 10-5 Saturday and Sunday and is very practical and interactive. Everyone is encouraged to participate and contribute their ideas from the start.

At the end of each day, there's a practical session where everyone gets the chance to practise Tarot reading.

Once you've completed the introductory course, you can come on the "Advanced Tarot" weekend which goes into the links between Tarot and Astrology.

There's also an "Introduction to Astrology" weekend course which has nothing to do with Tarot. You get to know the basic building blocks of Astrology and start to look at birth-charts.'

A little about me!
My love of Tarot started in the mid 1970's when a boyfriend of mine at the time bought me a set, and I had become interested in Astrology, Palmistry and Graphology (the study of handwriting) earlier when I was about fourteen.

Over the years I have added several other sets of Tarot cards to my collection, some I use for readings, some for meditation and healing work and some just because I like them. I started readings for friends over 30 years ago, then on to a semi-professional basis several years ago. When reading for a client, I use the cards to shed light on their problem, and as a counselling tool, to give confidential and compassionate advice. Tarot has a great ability to open up a situation and show possible routes to take. It will often turn a problem on its head and suggest ways & solutions that might not have been thought of before.

In 2005 I completed Diplomas in both Crystal and Colour Healing therapies, which I have found to be invaluable at times for clients when I have finished a particularly emotional reading for them.

I have been teaching Tarot for about 5 years, mainly at a New Age shop called 'Quest' in Ewell, Surrey. (recently re-located to Epsom, Surrey)

I am a Senior member of TABI, having been a member since 2007

I am also available for personal readings or readings by email - please contact me for further information.
