Welcome to the LSA Online

In this video Frank welcomes you to the LSA online program. 

Year 1 Curriculum (first course begins 4 November 2019)

Suitable for newcomers or those wishing to refresh their knowledge or fill in the gaps, this year provides a firm foundation in astrological principles.

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. Although this is our foundation year, you’ll be introduced to much more than the basics (from the lunation cycle to the void Moon).

Core tutors: Frank Clifford, Kim Farley and Richard Swatton. Guest tutors TBC.

Year 2 Curriculum (first course begins 19 November 2019)

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.

During this exciting year of study, you’ll develop your skills in interpretation and forecasting with class examples and live client work. You’ll be introduced to forecasting methods such as transits, planetary cycles, Solar Arc directions, secondary progressions, and returns. You’ll also learn essential tools and techniques for today’s working astrologer, including locational (astro-maps) and mundane astrology, plus the art of synastry (chart comparison).

Core tutors: Frank Clifford and Richard Swatton. Guest tutors TBC.
