Established on 21st September 2006 at 11am BST in Wembley, Middlesex
The School of Esoteric Astrology teaches a diploma course integrating astrology with spiritual/esoteric wisdom, meditation and complementary-alternative medicine such as herbalism, homoeopathy & healing.

Astrosophia (anthroposophical and theosophical philosophy) is integrated with astrology.

School of Esoteric Astrology
The school began as a homeopathic college in 1999, teaching 4 year practitioner level diplomas in homeopathic medicine. The college Principal Dr. Yubraj Sharma is a medical doctor who practices homoeopathy, herbalism, acupuncture and many other healing modalities. The astrology course was added in 2006, and since 2019 a new herbalism course was launched. Particular focus is on incorporating theosophical and anthroposophical philosophy into the courses. Shared learning resources are provided to astrology students from the homeopathy and herbal training programmes.

Course length is four-years with 10 two-day attendance classes per year (currently scheduled on Thursday and Friday). These are attendance classes held at the college premises in Willesden, northwest London. Class timing is 11am to 5pm both days. There is easy access by London underground (jubilee line); Dollis Hill underground tube station is 7 minutes walk away. An extensive library of video recordings complements the attendance classes. The school online virtual learning environment is accessed by students after enrolment.

Admission Requirements
Applications are received from beginners to experienced astrologers. Queries and application can be addressed to Dr Yubraj Sharma. The current annual course fee as of 2022 is £1600 per year, and is subject to price increases in future intakes. Fees may be paid by instalments.

There is a new intake of students after each student group completes graduation, i.e. every four years. The next intake is planned for September 2025 and thereafter September 2029. Contact the school for up to date information, register for future intakes and to receive an application pack.

Student Base
Students are UK based or travel to the school (London, UK) for classes. Teaching is attendance based due to class time spent on experiential learning, such as training in meditation-healing techniques within a classroom setting.

Further Information
Some poetry and quotes might convey our ethos:

“The active forces of the starry world push us into physical incarnation. Clairvoyant perception allows us to see in a person’s organisation that he or she is indeed the result of the working together of such cosmic forces…If we examined the structure of a person’s brain clairvoyantly…we would find that each person’s brain is different. If we could take a picture of the entire brain with all its details visible, we would get a different picture for each person. If we photographed a person’s brain at the moment of birth and tool a picture of the sky directly above his/her birthplace, the two pictures would be alike. The stars in the sky would be arranged in the same way as certain parts of the brain. Thus the brain is really a picture of the heavens, and we each have a different picture depending on where and when we are born. This indicates we are born out of the entire universe.”

Rudolf Steiner. GA15. The Spiritual Guidance of the Individual and Humanity, lecture 3, Copenhagen, 8th June 1911

“Not from the stars do I my judgment pluck, And yet methinks I have astronomy; But not to tell of good or evil luck, Of plagues, of dearths, or seasons’ quality. Nor can I fortune to brief minutes tell, ‘Pointing to each his thunder, rain, and wind. Or say with princes if it shall go well, By oft predict that I in heaven find. But from thine eyes my knowledge I derive. And, constant stars, in them I read such art. As truth and beauty shall together thrive. If from thyself to store thou wouldst convert. Of else of thee this I prognosticate: Thy end is truth’s and beauty’s doom and date.

William Shakespeare, sonnet 14.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer. When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me. When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them. When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room. How soon unaccountable I became tired, and sick. Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.

Walt Whitman, 1865
