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.
Steven Forrest's Astrologer Apprentice Program offers students the chance to study astrology in depth with one of the most successful astrologers of our time. Programs are currently offered in Southern and Northern California, North Carolina, Europe, Australia, and Mexico.
Students may enter the program at any level of astrological proficiency. The program is rigorous intellectually and emotionally, but also non-pretentious and very accessible. After attending three four-day sessions, students receive Level One certification and may be added to Steven's website referral page. After attending six sessions, a Level Two certificate is awarded. The site gets a lot of traffic and being included has helped some students establish their own astrological practice.
Steven Forrest’s style of evolutionary astrology is centered on a philosophy of freedom and choice. Steven encourages people to use the birth chart to make better, wiser choices rather than attempting to “foresee the future” in some limiting way. There is less “description” and more “prescription” in his approach. Steven’s interpretations are psychological in tone, but unfold against the backdrop of the soul’s evolutionary path. 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.

While it's important to understand Astrology intellectually from a head space, we also need to imbibe Astrology.
