Year 1 – Our Foundation Course (Wednesdays from October 2021)
We’re live online this coming autumn (2021) and have a Saturday London live option too for those who want to see us in Euston.
Once again this year, we are offering both a weeknight and Saturday study option for beginners. Students enrolled on a weeknight will have the option of attending Saturday beginners’ classes (and vice versa) at no additional cost. Students will receive a timetable of which topics are taught/repeated when, and may mix-and-match to suit their own schedule. £265 per term (£500 for two terms, £750 for three terms paid together).
All weeknight classes are recorded and made available to students on their dashboard (via our .com site), which also contains articles, charts and handouts.
Weekly evening option, 7pm to 9.20pm:
This course now comprises all pre-recorded videos and exclusive access to our live Zoom classes and London live classes. See our prospectus for full dates and details. 18+ hours of pre-recorded videos and six 2-hour weeknight tutorials (or 3 4-hour Saturday tutorials) per term.
Learn the essential tools and ‘language’ of astrology: the zodiac signs, planets, aspects and houses; work on your own charts and the horoscopes of people in the news, and start to spot and synthesize major chart themes. You’ll also learn astrology in ‘real time’ by watching charts animated dynamically using the latest software.
Suitable for newcomers or those wishing to refresh their knowledge or fill in the gaps, this course provides a firm foundation in astrological principles. Optional assignments completed during the year comprise Paper 1 of the LSA’s Certificate.
