The International Academy of Astrology (IAA) opened its cyber doors in November 1997. Ena Stanley, President and the 2012 Regulus Award Winner for Education, wanted to teach an independent curriculum that would encompass many of the astrological organizations certification requirements and enable anyone, anywhere, with a home computer to obtain an outstanding astrological education with personal attention.
Today, IAA is internationally recognized for excellence in astrological education and graduates are authorized to use the title ‘Dipl.IAA’ after their name to demonstrate that they have completed this rigorous course of training and are then fully qualified to practice astrology in a professional capacity. Graduates of IAA have benefit of certification with ISAR and NCGR upon final testing.
IAA’s two main courses of study offers the student basic natal interpretation to advanced delineation skills taking the student on the journey to become a professional astrologer. IAA also offers Medical, Traditional, Evolutionary and Vedic Astrology modules. Classes are also taught in the Spanish language.
IAA often holds lectures and workshops independent from the curriculum and has a public library offering free articles written by notable astrologers. Past lectures and workshop are available for purchase.
Our 101 Astrology Program is unique because not only is it accessible 101-knowledge offered to the general public, but it is an incredibly holistic approach to the multifaceted study and practice of Astrology, taking into account different learning styles and ways to really understand this information through a variety of activities and experiences, all within a classroom setting. While it's important to understand Astrology intellectually from a head space, we also need to imbibe Astrology. We will understand Astrology not only through lecture, powerpoints and reading books, but we will also experience Astrology through music, video, art, games, meditation, food, reflection and body movement to see spectrum of these archetypes all around us, everyday.
In the 1st-Year Program of the Portland School of Astrology, we explore the basics of astrology in standard and unconventional ways to best appeal to a multitude of learning styles and personal experiences. We learn how to delineate (interpret) a chart, learn cycles, phases, retrogrades, movement and transits of planets. We also cover topics of interest to the well-rounded astrologer that include Astronomy, History, Philosophy and we even get physical with Astro-Drama and Astro-Yoga! We also introduce specific topics in the diverse field of Astrology such as Esoteric Astrology, Medical Astrology and a variety of techniques to appeal to a variety of interests of students.
Instructors include Jaysen Paulson, Rhea Wolf, Judith Hill, Andrea Gehrz and guest lecturers.
Groups currently meeting in Southern and Northern California as well as Australia. The program is rigorous intellectually and emotionally, but informal otherwise. Once a person has attended three of the four-day sessions, he or she can receive signed Level One certificate. After six sessions, a Level Two certificate is awarded. Either certificate qualifies a person to be listed in the Forrest Trained Astrologers Directory on the website. The site gets a lot of traffic and being included has helped people establish their own astrological practices.
Steven Forrest’s style of evolutionary astrology is centered on a philosophy of freedom and choice. We aim to encourage people to make better, wiser choices rather than attempting to “foresee the future” in some deadening - and often dubious - way. There is less “description” and more “prescription” in his approach than in much of what currently flies under the banner of “astrology.” Steven’s interpretations are psychological in tone, but unfold against the backdrop of the idea of the soul’s evolutionary path. Reincarnation is generally assumed. Technically, Steven’s astrological style is “modern.” He uses the Tropical zodiac, the outer planets, both modern and classical rulerships, and the Placidus house system.

An online course in professional applied practice of astrology. Independent distance learning, self-directed training course in the professional applied practice of astrology. 34-hours of pre-recorded audio in 17 classes, made up of three modules or semesters, is taught in an organized but organic fashion; the modules are fixed and focused while the classes are more fluid within the subject matter. Rather like nature and humanity. Registered students will gain access to all audio lectures and discussions, as well as printed material.
This is an excellent method of learning and absorbing vast amounts of information both in subtle and solid ways. Each of the modules, along with recommended reading, slowly increases one’s grasp on the knowledge of practical, archetypal and psychological astrology.
I recorded the classes live online, with real students . . . they are taught in ‘real time’ and available here to you both visually (as streaming video) and in audio format with PDF handouts as used in the classes. So it is ‘being there’ as you learn.
