Medical astrology is an ancient applied branch of astrology based mostly on melothesia, the association of various parts of the body, diseases, and drugs with the nature of the sun, moon, planets, and the twelve astrological signs.

This comprehensive and thought-provoking Medical Astrology in Herbalism Diploma Course unites medical astrology and holistic herbalism - exploring the link between planets, human anatomy, the signs of the zodiac, and the various healing properties of plants, to provide a complete healing modality that works with the body and the spirit together, as one.

You’ll discover the history and theories behind medical astrology and grow to understand the influence each of the seven planets traditionally studied in medical astrology has on us and on the plants used in herbal medicine.

You’ll learn how to assess people constitutionally and use this information to fine-tune your herb choices to best fit their constitution. You’ll also gain an understanding of how the planets are represented constitutionally and how this guides herb selection for aiding emotional and spiritual needs.

The Medical Astrology in Herbalism Diploma Course will teach you how to observe patterns that are reflected throughout the universe, our planet, nature and ourselves, and how these similarities and patterns can be used to understand our health and emotions and guide us in the herbs to use for healing.

Through understanding the constitutions linked to each planet, this astro herbalism course will teach you about yourself and provide you with a deeper understanding of different personality types. In doing so, you will gain insight into how you and others may need help.

What are CPD hours/points?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
