Rave Reviews

“Darby Costello is the consummate teacher - thorough, engaging, insightful and vast both in her personal, worldly experience and astrological knowledge.”
– Cindy M.
“I love these classes! so rich with fascinating research and always presented in a clear and concise way. Mark's sessions greatly expand my knowledge and perspective on how valuable and magical the music of the planets are!”
– Mariam B.
“Tony, your lectures have been stellar. It's clear that you're rigorously thinking through the order in which we need to hear the information to facilitate our actually taking it in. Moreover, you're also resisting the temptation to make the meanings formulaic, and thus overly reductive. I think it's quite remarkable that after a mere three lessons, I'm starting to grok how to think astrologically.”
– Susan Shannon
“Tony is an excellent teacher, I’m looking forward to learning more from him and the rest of the instructors at astrology university in the future. ”
