The London School of Astrology

At the London School of Astrology, we teach astrology in a stimulating, fun and interactive environment. Our accredited courses are designed to help students develop confidence in interpretation, forecasting and many other areas.

The LSA offers courses at every level, plus weekly tutorials, one-off events and shorter courses in specialist areas of astrology. We also run popular courses in tarot and palmistry. Although the LSA continues to hold classes in central London, over the past few years it has become a leading presence online, too. It also has branches in China and Japan, and others will follow in 2023.

The school is run hands-on by Frank Clifford, an award-winning astrologer and writer who teaches much of the syllabus. All of our hand-picked teachers are full-time practitioners and many are acclaimed writers. All have expertise in humanistic, psychological, evolutionary, mundane or traditional astrology.

Since its launch in 2000, the LSA has been at the forefront of creating the astrologers, media writers and consultants of tomorrow. We’re unique in that we offer students a wealth of materials as well as guidance and support every step of the way during their time with us and – with our new supervision classes – beyond.

Year 1: Our Foundation Course (101, 102, 103)
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 most of Paper 1 of the LSA’s Certificate.

Year 1 now comprises access to all pre-recorded videos and exclusive access to our live Zoom classes and live classes in London Euston. All three options in one.

Year 2: Our Intermediate Course (201, 202, 203)
During this exciting year of study, you’ll develop your skills in interpretation and forecasting with class examples and client work. You’ll be introduced to planetary cycles and forecasting methods such as transits, solar arc directions, secondary progressions, and solar and lunar returns. You’ll also learn essential tools and techniques for today’s working astrologer, including locational (astrocartography) and mundane astrology, plus the art of synastry (chart comparison).

This is the ideal course to join if you already know the basics but want to learn techniques and develop fluency and confidence in interpretation and forecasting.

Year 2 now comprises access to all pre-recorded videos and exclusive access to our live Zoom classes and live Saturday seminars (one a term) in London Euston. All three options in one.

Year 3: Our Advanced Course (301, 302, 303)
This self-contained Professional Training Apprenticeship Programme is designed to help you broaden your skills and scope as an apprentice astrologer, and prepare you step-by-step for reading charts and engaging in professional, paid client work.

Year 3 is open to all. Some knowledge of synastry, mundane and locational astrology is helpful. If you’re unsure of your current level, please feel welcome to contact the office to discuss it further. Using many new natal and forecasting case studies, you’ll learn how to:

  • Synthesize and prioritize chart themes and articulate placements
  • Explore symbols; engage in creative and spontaneous interpretations
  • Participate in live client sessions and student-tutor dialogues
  • Apply counselling skills and explore the astrologer-client relationship
  • Use vocational, electional and horary tools for yourself and your clients

Year 3 students are encouraged to write or lecture – should they wish to do so. For instance, some students are writing for astrology or general magazines, as well as lecturing at conferences and local groups.

Year 3 now comprises access to all pre-recorded videos and exclusive access to our live Zoom classes and live Saturday seminars (one a term) in London. All three options in one.

Admission and Enrolment
There are no admission requirements and all are welcome. Students may enrol at any time during the year. The live tutorials (online weeknights or in person on Saturdays) for each term occur at specific dates but these can act as revision for those who have joined the course (and begun their 12-month access) earlier.

We offer Certificate exams each year, and those wishing to study for our internationally recognized Diploma can create one that reflects their own astrological interests.
