What I’ve Been Looking For

I’m so glad I took the leap and joined this program. I’ve been a casual student of astrology since childhood, which means I have a lot of random knowledge and even more difficulty putting it together. Having structure and learning with other people has made a huge difference. I’m very impressed with how Tony is introducing each layer of astrology and already see how his process will help me put my existing knowledge into greater context. The Q&As make a world of difference. I’m watching them after they’ve been recorded and I still gain so much from hearing the struggles and insights other students offer up during the sessions. No more reading an astrology book on my own and wondering if anyone else had to read the same paragraph ten times! Excited for what’s to come.

Awesome Intro to Astrology!

This class was really great. It was both super informative and interesting. 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. Thank you all so much for sharing your knowledge and gifts!

A life changing experience

I've been studying astrology for over two decades, and was optimistic about taking this intro class as an avenue into grounding my knowledge. I can't even begin to express the depth and breadth that Tony opened up in his presentations and his presence with the students. My knowledge base about the signs and houses was truly expanded. Tony is a gifted teacher, and it was quite obvious that his passion and priority are enhancing the knowledge of all participants, from all levels of learning. I am looking forward to continuing with my studies at AU.
