I went from not understanding a birth chart at all, to feeling confident in my understanding. I am looking forward to continuing my knowledge with Astrology University. Information is taught in an order that has helped deepen my understanding. Very excited for what is to come!

So grateful I signed up.

There is so much value in this class. I’ve been studying astrology for 2 years and still was blown away by the amount of information I had not considered. I’m happy my foundational knowledge is that much stronger now. It’s presented in a very organized manner and Tony has such a calm and inspiring energy while he is teaching. Thank you!

loving it

The materials I am reading, watching and listening to have been pulling together my knowledge and connecting the dots with the information I knew I was missing. I was trying to bring my astrology knowledge to higher level alone, but I was getting frustrated. I believe I made the right decision to join the astrology university, it feels like I am finally in the world of astrology as I hoped to learn to understand it. Tony is a great teacher, wonderful to listen to, and answers questions clearly and with care. I am looking forward to the coming courses!
