The CPA provides a unique workshop and professional training programme, designed to foster the cross-fertilisation of the fields of astrology and depth, humanistic, and transpersonal psychology.
The main aims and objectives of the CPA professional training course are:

  • To provide students with a solid and broad base of knowledge, within the realms of both traditional astrological symbolism and psychological theory and technique, so that the astrological chart can be sensitively understood and interpreted in the light of modern psychological thought.
  • To make available to students psychologically qualified case supervision, along with background seminars in counselling skills and techniques which can raise the standard and effectiveness of astrological consultation. Please note that no formal training as a counsellor or therapist is provided by the course.
  • To encourage investigation and research into the links between astrology, psychological models, and therapeutic techniques, thereby contributing to and advancing the existing body of astrological and psychological knowledge.

    London School of Astrology (LSA)

    Our aim at London School of Astrology is to teach holistic, contemporary and psychologically oriented astrology - to show that divisions between, for example, mind, body and country, are illusory. People, places and things are linked by a common symbolic language. Understanding one can help us understand more clearly the other. Such understanding is a pre-requisite for self-understanding and spiritual growth. It also has practical implications, at LSA, we are not above trying to predict the winner of the 2:30 at Doncaster or which way the stock market might go. But often what is more interesting is not so much working out what WILL happen, so much as working out the Why; the meaning behind a given event. The hermetic axiom, as Above, So Below, As Within, So Without is a central tenet of astrological philosophy and we take pains to make it come alive.
    As well as deepening interpretational skills and learning about the different ways astrology can be applied (relationships, international affairs, health etc.) students will be introduced to how astrological principles link with various forms of psychology, spiritual disciplines and healing. For those who want it, we offer full professional training towards becoming a professional astrologer.
    There is no emphasis on assessments, no cramming to pass examinations at LSA. However, for those who do want qualifications, we do offer examinations each April to test basic competency (Certificate) and professional expertise (Diploma). The school is a member of the Astrological Guild of Educators - an independent and non-profit making, international organization, whose brief is to maintain high standards in astrological education. Qualifying as a professional astrologer takes approx 3 - 4 years.
    Entry requirements: Our courses are open to all regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, disability. No previous knowledge of astrology is required for our Foundation courses. For the Diploma course, we welcome applications from all students of astrology, providing they can show they have reached a level of understanding which would enable them to benefit from the course.

    The Qualifying Horary Diploma Course (QHDC)
    Mongeham Lodge Cottage, Great Mongeham, Deal, Kent. CT14 0HD

    The QHDC is a two year correspondence course leading to a thorough understanding of horary astrology. Central to the course is the study of William Lilly's Christian Astrology(1647) which is the definitive work on the subject and perhaps the most remarkable book ever written on astrology.
    This is an advanced and rewarding course demanding effort and concentration. The course was started by Olivia Barclay in 1984 and has students worldwide.
