Rave Reviews

"My previous use of astrology involved doing readings in a “cookbook” or “alphabet” way. Frank and Tony present their teachings in an easy to understand manner and make asking questions comfortable. I will be continuing on with these courses indefinitely."
– Melissa C.
“The four-year program classes are informative, the students are supportive and we learn a lot from each other. Tony is an amazing teacher, he takes the time to talk and support each of his students' questions. Tony's support of his students is amazing. The classes are never rushed but supports the students' pace. I would strongly encourage anyone interested in learning about astrology to take any courses being offered by Tony University. Tony and his teachers are well versed, and of high caliber.”
