Our school was founded in 2000 and, now approaching our 17th academic year, we are delighted to say that the LSA continues to be the most popular place to study astrology in London.
The LSA offers weekly classes and seminars designed to enable you to use the powerful tool of astrology for your own personal self-development and in a professional capacity, too. Our classes show that astrology – essentially a spiritual discipline – can be practical and relevant to all aspects of everyday life. Our aim is to provide the highest standard of tuition in a fun and supportive environment and our tutors are experienced, practising astrologers – teachers and consultants who have the breadth of knowledge that is only acquired after many years of working on a day-to-day basis with astrology.
This year we have a new Saturday study option for Beginners at Regent’s College (Regent’s Park) which comprises four seminars a term – visit our website for a free copy of the course prospectus.
