Faculty Open Day 2024

Honoring the sacred · celebrating our art

Saturday 23rd March 2024

Mary Ward House, 5-7 Tavistock Place, London, WC1H 9SN

Faculty Open Day is an annual event, an opportunity for Faculty students, tutors, graduates and friends to get together and celebrate the achievements of our new Diploma and Certificate holders. Our guest speaker this year is Darby Costello who will speak about Honouring our art in this secular world in the afternoon session following the presentation of the awards.

Darby Costello was born in America and studied astrology in Boston in the 1960s with Francis Sakoian and Louis Acker and then Isabel Hickey. From there she went to Africa, where she worked with tribal healers and diviners for many years, while developing her astrological practice. In 1983 she went to London looking for an astrological community. To her delight, she found it and is involved with it at many levels. She began building an astrological clientele soon after arriving, and in 1988 began teaching at the Centre for Psychological Astrology, founded by Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas. Ten years later she became Head Tutor and wrote several books for the CPA Press.

Darby teaches and lectures throughout Europe and in other parts of the world. She has given seminars in far flung places such as Bali, China and Taiwan, and in many parts of North America, including Alaska. In 2013 she received the Charles Harvey Award for Exceptional Service to Astrology. Her first love in astrology is doing charts and her worldwide clientele is the ground out of which her astrological inspiration is nourished.

We will also enjoy presentations from several Faculty students during the morning session on the theme of “Honouring the Sacred; Celebrating our Art” – more details and a full programme will be announced shortly.

Faculty Day is open to all and is an opportunity for potential students to come along and get a flavour of the Faculty. Many of the Faculty tutors will be present so if you are a current Faculty student it’s a chance to come along and meet in person. Wherever you are in your astrology journey, Faculty Day is a great opportunity to gather in person to connect and to celebrate our vibrant astrological community.
