Jenny received high grades in both Courses.
In October 2015 Jenny travelled from Western Australia to Melbourne and sat the AAAC Certificate Examination under supervision, which consisted of two 4-hour papers. Her Certificate examination papers were counter corrected by Dr. Duane Eaks, who has been the AAAC counter corrector since 1985.

COMMENDATION FOR OUR ACADEMY
Below is an extract of an email received recently from one of our students who received her AAAC Certificate of Completion ..
"I work for a company that deals almost exclusively with disadvantaged people and a great number of my clients are addicts. Drug addiction has always fascinated me and because of what you have taught me I have started thinking about the correlation between planetary positions and the susceptibility to addiction and life circumstances - how much of what happens to us do we control and what can we do to change (if we want to)? I am currently doing a little social experiment of sorts - drawing up charts for addicts and seeing if there is some commonality there.
So not only have I learnt so very much about myself, what I am capable of and why I do the gloriously flawed things I do, I am also getting a better understanding of how our amazing universe works and how that universe impacts the people around us. I am very grateful to you and your school.
Thank you for your guidance and the time you have given me. What started as an interest has developed into a lifestyle."
And from Principal Pamela Rowe .. "A new researcher in the making. How fortunate are we at AAAC to attract students such as these".

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, 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' .. 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. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to purchase your copy.
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 40 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 do not currently offer Beginners classes in the classroom. If we do in the future, full information will be posted on this website, so please do not confuse us with any other suppliers.
AAAC CORRESPONDENCE COURSES & ENROLMENT
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 10 Unit BEGINNERS Correspondence Course usually takes between 18 to 24 months to complete. As a result of requests from prospective students experiencing financial hardship, there are now two payment options -- pay for the full 10 Units upfront, or pay for the first 5 Units, complete these Units and then pay for the second 5 Units.
You are invited to browse the rest of this website. For further information about the Correspondence Courses complete the Course Information Request Form under 'Course Information' on this website.
