MCS Working with Astrology Course

(This is an email course.)

​The course guides you through a basic understanding of what astrology is and how it works.

The course is divided into modules that build gradually to enable you to assess or delineate a natal astrological chart and to apply that knowledge in areas that interest you.


Optional modules include learning how to hand-calculate a chart, taking a look at patterns in the future and applying astrological information to relationships and the soul path of an individual


The course has been written by Sue Lilly. Sue has been working as a professional astrologer, alternative therapist and teacher for forty years.


The original version of this course was adopted by the British Astrological and Psychic Society (BAPS) from 1995-2005 as their certificate course.

BAPS no longer exists, so successful completion of the course allws the person to say that they have completed level 1 and level 2, to consultant standard. Dip Astrol.MCS
