Our motto is 'PER LABOREM ET AMOREM AD SAPIENTIAM', which means "THROUGH LABOUR AND LOVE WE ACHIEVE WISDOM".
The teaching of astrology has a long and historic tradition and the climate at the Australian Academy of Astrology & Cosmobiology is ideal for students with a genuine interest in learning and self-development.

THE AAAC STORY
Prior to studying Astrology Principal Pamela Rowe worked for 8 years in a high level administrative position at a University Hospital Medical School in Melbourne Australia, assisting in the preparation of lecture notes and examinations for final year medical students. This fueled her passion for teaching and health research.
Pamela commenced studying Astrology in 1971 with Doris Greaves, Founder of the Federation of Australian Astrologers. Pamela worked with Doris and Len Bullen to help produce the early FAA Journals and contributed articles for the FAA Journal over a long period of time. After graduating Doris' course in 1977 Pamela commenced teaching Astrology and joined with Doris and Gillian Murray (now Helfgott) as Co-Principals of the Melbourne Academy of Cosmobiology.
In 1984 Pamela founded the Australian Academy of Astrology & Cosmobiology, creating her own Syllabus to include both Traditional Astrology and Cosmobiology techniques.
In 1985 Pamela created her own AAAC supervised examination system, based on her knowledge and experience. AAAC has produced some outstanding graduates. Many have served in high level positions with the FAA and received awards and many have written successful articles and books, published in Australia and overseas.
Some of our students have also taken the examinations of other astrological organizations and done extremely well. Each astrology organisation has its own accreditation system.
THE AAAC CORRESPONDENCE COURSE was established by Pamela in 2001, due to a heavy demand from Australian country areas and from those whose work limited their attendance at regular classes. These days all our lessons are conducted via correspondence and online communication. They are individually graded and prepare students for the AAAC and AFA Certificate examinations, which are conducted under supervision and are copyright.
AAAC Courses recognize the huge volume of research in Astrology done by other astrologers worldwide. We include many outstanding extracts and book recommendations in our lessons -- but naturally we always list the author of the intellectual property involved.
