Dwarf Planet Astrology Diploma

The Dwarf Planet University will offer in-depth courses on five of the dwarf planets in 2021 and extend this to ten in 2022.

The university will offer a Dwarf Planet Astrology Diploma on the completion of any eight of the ten courses on offer. And we will encourage those with the diploma to display a 'Dwarf Planet Certified' statement on their promotion.

Course Format

These courses mix webinars, blog-posted research assignments on your personal chart and live Zoom Q&As, timed so you can attend from anywhere in the world.


Each course starts with a Zoom introduction and we will explore the meaning of the planet and its House position in the first fortnight, its aspects in the second fortnight and transits in the third. Each fortnight will include an instructional webinar, an assignment and a live 2 hour Zoom Q&A session.

Assignments are posted on a private blog so we can learn from, and comment on posts from our fellow course members. And the live Q&A sessions are recorded so you can pick up any classes you miss. 




The courses assume a basic understanding of astrology, but these days many of us have this, so there is no barrier to entering at whatever level of study you are at and participating however you feel inspired. We are all learning with these new planets.

So the coursework will not be graded, but it will be assessed in determining if any course can be credited towards the diploma.


Submission of the written assignments, interaction with the other student's posts and participation in the live Q&As is required for those studying towards the diploma and we will award 'Diplomas with Distinction' to the top students. 

Next Year at the Uni

In the new year all the existing courses - Ixon, Eris, Ceres, Sedna & Haumea -repeat and we will also be offering courses on:

  1. Quaoar        A non-gendered Californian indian deity who sings and dances a new reality out of chaos - possibly the higher octave of Jupiter. 

  2. Makemake   An Easter island deity enabling a mental devotional focus bordering on genius - the higher octave of Uranus. 

  3. Varuna         Indian deity of sovereignty and mastery, ruling without force, which brings notability - the higher octave of Saturn.

  4. Orcus           Another Plutino like Ixion - he takes those who break their word into the underworld - delving down and speaking out.

  5. Gonggong    Newly named Chinese water god who tilted the earth and created the seasons - a flood of insight.
