How long does it take to get the Sydney Astrology School Certificate?
Sydney Astrology School’s Certificate in Astrology takes four terms to complete Levels 1-4. Astrology Masterclass is an ongoing class for chart practice and learning further techniques, including workshops on various topics. Learning can be taken at your own pace in that you can sit out a term if you are too busy with work or other commitments, and resume class the following term with a new group.
Will I be able to do astrology readings for people once I've finished the course?
Yes, but like everything in life to become proficient at something it’s all about practice. I encourage students to stay with the course after Level 4 to hone their craft and perfect their skills if they are serious with taking Astrology into client work.
I am just wanting to learn astrology for my own interest, is the course suitable for me?
Yes absolutely, people learn Astrology for a variety of reasons.
Is there support after the course is over?
Yes, there is an ongoing ‘Masterclass’ that remains open for all students to keep expanding on their knowledge.
Do you recognise prior learning?
Yes we do. Levels of proficiency are gaged by a short test which is sent by email. We would recommend students to do the whole course.
Does Sydney Astrology School prepare you to sit the FAA exam?
Sydney Astrology Schools syllabus gives you a good grounding for the FAA exams. Exam tutoring is also available.
The FAA has its affiliates Astrology Association of NSW (AANSW) and The South Coast Astrology Group (SCAG) which has monthly meetings with speakers that can also extend your Astrological knowledge.
Do you recommend any software?
Yes, but it’s not necessary in order to do the course. Astro.com generates astrology charts. Astro Gold is phone app put out by Esoteric Technologies which costs approx. US$39.99 (iOS) and US$34.99 (Android). This is a good introduction to Solar Fire, prior to you making that purchase of their full software package.
Are there any books you recommend we read before we start the course?

The Inner Sky – Steven Forrest
The Chart Interpretation Handbook – Stephen Arroyo
Astrology and Consciousness – Rio Olesky
The 12 Houses – Howard Sasportas
