The School of Traditional Astrology (STA) specialises in the training of horary astrology practitioners. Its educational focus is the integration of traditional astrological teachings within contemporary astrological practice.

Founded by Deborah Houlding, the school offers practitioner's level accreditation in horary through attendance at courses, residential intensives or interactive online presentations. Since 1996 residential intensives have been held at venues as far afield as Australia, Bali, England, France, Hawaii, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Scotland and Tasmania.

The school also offers advanced level accreditation for tutors and astrologers specialising in horary astrology, through a three-year correspondence course which leads to the astrological qualification STA (DipH).

The aim of the STA is to:
  • facilitate greater understanding and respect for the philosophy and practice of horary astrology,

  • support the development of horary practitioners to their full potential,

  • ensure the historical transmission of astrology as a line of continuation between past, present and future practitioners.
The STA is a member of the Advisory Panel on Astrological Education and its courses are approved by the Association of Professional Astrologers International.
