How will the Apprenticeship Program Benefit Me?

Many students in the program have established private astrological practices, though you need not feel out of place if that isn't your goal. It is perfectly acceptable for someone to attend the program purely for purposes of personal growth. But if you do intend to set up shop as a professional astrologer, this program will prepare you to be successful. Good astrology helps people. Our ultimate aim is to maximize that benefit to the human community. The Apprentice Program is offered so that you can learn how to most usefully present astrology to clients in a counseling context, or with family and friends.
