STA on Facebook

Thank you to everyone in the astrological community for giving our new public Facebook page such a swift 'thumbs up'. The page was started by Wade Caves on 17 October 2015, and we were really thrilled to get over 500 likes in the first 24 hours. We hope to develop the page into a useful resource that not only offers details of STA activities, but features lots of newsworthy items and articles of interest to traditional astrology. If you are a Facebook user, liking our page ensures our news and content reaches your stream, so if you haven't done it yet, why not like us now?

STA Facebook page for graduates

In addition to our public Facebook page, the STA also has an active and engaging private group, for all astrologers who have completed our practitioner's course in horary. The quality of discussion is very high, and there is a wonderful spirit of comradeship amongst horary astrologers who support each other, and use the page to share chart examples or probe particular details of horary. The page is designed to add value to our courses by offering ongoing support on any element of horary for as long as anyone needs it. All tutors participate on the same level as other members - they answer, share and learn through the examples offered, and it is a great way for friendships made during our courses to be continued and developed. Access to the page is automatically made available upon completion of the STA practitioner's level horary course.

STA at the AA conference, September 2014:

A few photos taken around the STA stand at the conference held by the Astrological Association of Great Britain in 2014. This was the first time the STA has held a trade stand so I was a bit nervous about not knowing what to do, but Tienka Atema took it all under her wing and managed it perfectly. The conference created a wonderful opportunity for tutors and students (past and present) to meet up again in the flesh - there were many happy memories, and new laughs to create more memories for the future. Thanks to everyone who helped and gathered around the stall. For those who have requested information on upcoming courses, these will be mailed out shortly.

Memories of Lendrick (2011):

I recently came across some photos of the certificate course held at Lendrick in Scotland in 2011. I have such fond memories of that course - those that were there will know what I mean when I say it was a mixture of dry and wet, but we all found out that there are ways to make your own weather in Lendrick ;). I've managed to keep in touch with some astrologers more than others, and hope I can get back up to Scotland soon to reconnect with some very special friends.

Here is a photo of everyone looking very energetic, even though it was the last day of the course. I've placed a gallery of other photos from Lendrick on this link. I love the sense of colour that we created as a group - even though the skies outside were mostly grey or full of rain.
