Astrology Course Information

How is Cosmobiology Different from Traditional Astrology?
TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGY concentrates on planets, signs, aspects and houses and is highly effective when used with an accurate birth time. Interpretation can be esoteric and mystical and also practical. Australian Academy of Astrology & Cosmobiology students are given a thorough background in Traditional Astrology before being introduced to Cosmobiology
COSMOBIOLOGY concentrates on planets, signs, the 'hard' aspects and midpoints, without highlighting the houses. This creates a different focus, which is particularly useful when no birth time is available. Cosmobiology is favoured by researchers and many medical astrologers.
Both systems of astrology are relevant. Australian Academy of Astrology & Cosmobiology students are taught both systems, but eventually choose their own favoured method of interpretation -- a mystical or scientific approach to astrology.

Beginners ONline Courses
With the advent of the internet, more students prefer the option of distance learning these days, so our Beginners ONline Course (ISBN 0-646-45388-2), which has been operating successfully since January 2001, may be the one for you. This Course provides the student with a sound knowledge of basic Traditional Astrology principles and can be commenced at a time to suit you.
We suggest you target 18 - 24 months as a satisfactory period to complete the 2 Beginners Courses. Naturally the Courses can be completed in less than this period, although some students take a little longer than others.
Experience has shown that learning astrology is a process, which invites personal evolvement along with astrological theory and practice. Students are encouraged to email their queries and actively participate.
Astrology learnt through the study of your own horoscope is particularly beneficial. Horoscope interpretation is therefore introduced early in the course. Because of this students quickly apply their lessons to everyday living and enhance their understanding of friends and loved ones.
We live in a computer age and most astrologers eventually purchase computer software. As a result the teaching of many astrological techniques and calculations are often bypassed and with time, will be lost. At our Academy we are committed to producing astrologers who can work with or without their computer software, we teach techniques and calculations as well as astrological interpretation. Astrologers who know how to actually construct and interpret a chart themselves are without doubt better astrologers than those who rely solely on their software.
Australian Academy of Astrology & Cosmobiology produces wholistic astrologers, many of whom have proven to be excellent teachers, interpreters and consultants. This course is also valuable for those who study astrology in the spirit of general knowledge and self development only.
