from herbalist Rosemary Gladstar
For a long time, I have wanted to learn more about the lunar cycles and the influence of the stars and planets on our personal lives. A ‘dabbler’ in celestial ways, I’m ready to dive deeper into the starry realms.

I couldn’t imagine a better guide to explore the heavens with than my dear friend and fellow herbalist, Emily Ruff. One of the brightest Moon Goddess’ and ‘Moonifestors’ that I know, Emily has been strongly influenced by the teachings of her father, Dr. William Ruff, a well known professor and astronomer. She artfully weaves astrology, astronomy, herbalism and healing Earth ways into a practical, clear and inspiring format that makes it so easy to grasp and incorporate into our own personal lives.

 Join Emily in this amazing class as we learn to navigate the stars and planets together, creating greater personal health and harmony by aligning ourselves to the pathways and cycles of the Moon. I look forward to seeing you virtually!

  • Is this course for everyone?
    YES! No astrology or astronomy experience is required - we start with the fundamentals and build on the basics as we go. If you're well-versed with astrology and astronomy concepts, you'll still find great value in the livetime calendars to track the cycles, historic lessons, and community engagement.
  • What makes this class different than other astrology courses?
    Moon Medicine is a one-of-a-kind curriculum, weaving science and spirit, astronomy and astrology, heavens and earth. There is truly no program out there that brings together intellect and intuition with plants and planets in the same way. We strive to share these teachings in formats to meet all learning styles, with videos, workbooks, and exercises suited to all levels of experience. Interaction with course instructors and classmates, and a wealth of bonus materials, make this course a program that not only leaves you with more knowledge, but with a true transformation in your personal relationships with the planets that will stay with you for a lifetime.
  • Do I need to have a birth chart for the course?
    We find that this study is enhanced by weaving your personal natal chart into the learning across the course of the calendar year. If you've already got a chart, dig it out and dust it off so you can start to compare it to the teachings of each lesson. If you don't have a birth chart or natal chart yet, you can add one on to the course for an additional fee.
  • I am enrolled. Now what?
    Welcome! We are so excited to have you here. Your Course Portal login will be sent on Monday January 8th, and our live Course Orientation will be held Wednesday January 10th at 7 pm EST. Keep an eye on your inbox for login instructions, and be sure to add to your safelist so that important course messages don't end up in your Promotions or Spam folder.
  • What if I want a refund?
    No course is a perfect match for every student. Submit your refund request by December 30th for a no-questions-asked full refund.
