Where I Studied Astrology

I studied at the Faculty of Astrological Studies and completed both the Foundation and Diploma courses. You'll find details of all their correspondence courses by visiting the Faculty of Astrological Studies website at: www.astrology.org.uk

Studying Astrology

Astrology is a fascinating subject and there is a huge astrological community around the world, who would be only too happy to welcome you into their ranks and help you learn more about the art.

My first recommendation would be to take a look at the website of the American based magazine, The Mountain Astrologer. The magazine began in 1987 with just eight typewritten pages and a print run of 100 copies. Now it is one of the most respected global astrological forums and prints 24,000 copies, obtaining 40,000 readers each month. This magazine carries comprehensive listings for astrological courses, seminars, meetings etc., taking place around the world each month.

Contributors to the magazine include some of the most well respected names in the astrological 'community', including Rob Hand, Erin Sullivan and Deborah Houlding.

The website is:  www.mountainastrologer.com

Subscriptions and back issues (including one on astrological courses) can be obtained by calling:

In the UK: 01202 424695

In the USA: (800) 287-4828

In Australia/New Zealand:  1 800 626 402

Another excellent resource is Dermod Moore's www.astrologer.com site. At this site you can find information of software, charts, astrological associations and a comprehensive directory listing all things astrological using a refined search system - The Metalog Directory.

Finally if you wish to study astrology to a professional level, you should contact the main astrological body in your country.
