VALE JAMES HERSCHEL HOLDEN
It is with deep sadness that we learnt of the passing of the great US astrologer Jim Holden of Phoenix Arizona. Working with Jim on the American Federation of Astrologers Board of Directors was an absolute pleasure. He was so generous with his extraordinary knowledge of astrology and life in general. We were privileged to have known him.
Jim's final legacy to astrologers was his 778 page "Biographical Dictionary of Western Astrologers". It consists of well researched biographies of more than 2,200 western astrologers from ancient times, beginning 2nd century BC, to early 20th century. It includes living persons born prior to 1936 as well as some deceased astrologers born in or after 1936. This beautifully presented book is available from AFA for $79.95 USD, at www.astrologers.com

CONGRATULATIONS TO AAAC GRADUATES
Over the past 20 years or so we have had many successful graduates from our Academy, of whom we are justifiably proud. Ethical practice is incorporated into the AAAC Syllabus and you may have met one of our graduates, quietly using their astrology to help others. We urge and encourage our graduates to do so.
The relationship between AAAC and the media has been happy and fun-filled, because we as astrologers want the world to know how astrology can help people understand themselves and others -- so we try to co-operate with genuine seekers of truth. Sadly the occasional reporter will dump serious astrology in with unrelated practices and make incorrect assumptions in a published article, in order to create a story which, even as an ignorant observer, he or she believes may attract readers.
In other words, DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ ABOUT ASTROLOGY IN THE NEWSPAPERS. Find out for yourself. If any newspaper article on astrology concerns you, send us an email.
'THE CRYPTIC CYCLE' IS NOW AVAILABLE
Although much work has already been done on the Solar Saros Cycle, the fascinating LUNAR SAROS CYCLE has generally been neglected.
MURRAY BEAUCHAMP, Researcher and Professional and Diploma Member of the Australian Academy of Astrology & Cosmobiology, has worked for many years with the Lunar Saros Cycle. His book "THE CRYPTIC CYCLE -- ASTROLOGY AND THE LUNAR SAROS" is now available at your favourite bookstore or through this website.
COST $29.95 (Aust) plus postage and handling.

With the advent of the computer age the techniques of astrology are fast becoming a dying art, as computer software in many instances, replaces direct knowledge. Most astrology students eventually own computers and astrology software, but at the Australian Academy of Astrology & Cosmobiology all are required to learn astrological techniques. Our long history of excellent results and fine graduate astrologers confirms the wisdom of this policy.
ASTROLOGY IN THE 21st CENTURY
After 30 years of successfully teaching astrology in the class room, demand has required the Australian Academy of Astrology & Cosmobiology to place greater emphasis on BEGINNERS learning astrology via correspondence or through the internet, in the comfort of their own homes. We may offer a Beginners class in the classroom in the future, in which case full information will be posted on this website.
We offer a 10-lesson BEGINNERS ASTROLOGY CORRESPONDENCE COURSE (ISBN 0-646-45388-2). When Beginners is completed, students can then commence the 10-lesson INTERMEDIATE CORRESPONDENCE COURSE (ISBN 0-646-45389-0).
The Australian Academy of Astrology & Cosmobiology Correspondence Courses can be commenced at any time of year and completed at your leisure. Feedback from our correspondence students is excellent and their progress very good.
