Astrology is a 4,000-year-old tradition that studies the relationship between time, destiny, and the cosmos. Central to our philosophy as astrologers is that time is imprinted upon all of us like a birthmark that tells the story of how our lives will unfold. Through astrology, we learn how to predict how celestial influences will concretely impact our lives.
Astrology gives us the ability to predict what the combinations of various stellar influences will yield on Earth. The astrologer utilizes the symbolic language of the stars, signs, and planets to make concrete, real-world predictions. These stellar influences impact us in physical, physiological, psychological, and spiritual ways. The ability to predict and interpret the effect that various celestial combinations will create is what makes a good astrologer.
Astrology works because we are a part of Nature and Nature is a part of us. The ancients held the understanding that we were elementata, or elemental beings. This means that the elements that constitute our material world are fundamentally the same elements that we find within ourselves. Just as those elements are impacted by the tides of celestial change that ripple throughout our universe, we too are impacted by those stellar currents.
The practice of astrology was built up over thousands of years. Ancient Roman astrologer Marcus Manilius tells us:
… after every aspect of the sky had been observed, as the stars returned to their original positions… by repeated practice and with examples pointing the way, experience built up the science; and from wide observations discovered that by hidden laws the stars weild sovereign power…
Astrology embodies the ancient understanding that we are all mirrors of the universe, and that our experiences on Earth are meant to be the reflection of a larger cosmic Life.
Among countless gifts, what makes Oraculos stand apart is an emphasis on the live oral transmission of astrological knowledge between the teacher and students encouraging an understanding beyond textbooks, lectures and notebooks.

Before embarking upon FOCA, I had been studying astrology quite intensely for over 4 years (both modern and traditional) and felt that I had a pretty good understanding of chart interpretation. Mychal’s FOCA course increased my competency in astrological techniques on many levels. Mychal’s teaching style is invigorating, intentional, challenging and impactful. I walked away from FOCA with core chart interpretation techniques that I fully understand and can confidently incorporate into my astrological work. Mychal’s commitment to his work and is students is not only impressive, but also a lot of fun. I was on the edge of my seat in every class!”

I had an amazing and challenging time with FOCA. I started as someone who had been involved with astrology for over five years but never took a formal class, so there was a lot I didn't know and it was time for me to know it. I chose Mychal's class because I had been following him for some time on social media and I respected his presentation and brilliance. There was a lot of work I had to do but my overall experience was very positive. I would recommend FOCA to anyone wanting to deepen their knowledge of traditional astrology, and also looking for a container of like-minded souls during this very special time on Earth.
FOCA was a fun, challenging, mind-expanding and exciting astrological journey that far exceeded my wildest hopes for such a course. The rich technical syllabus left no room for uncertainty - everything in FOCA has a rule to follow, a reason behind it, and a process in which to execute it. It is clear that Mychal is deeply committed to his students. He welcomed us into the Oraculos family from day one, went above and beyond to answer our many questions, and his interactive teaching method ensured no student was left behind. In only four months of study, I already have a huge boost in confidence and clarity in my astrological endeavours. I truly cannot think of a better place to study astrology, and I can’t wait to learn more!
The first time I heard Mychal speak I knew I found a teacher. I don’t often seek out teachers, however when I find a true teacher of any art or topic, I am immediately transformed into a student. Since studying at Oraculos, it has taken my understanding of astrology to the next level. In learning modern astrology, many concepts were not a part of the curriculum. Taking courses at Oraculos assisted me in creating a bridge between modern astrology and the astrology passed down to us by our astrological predecessors that we have revived and translated to date. I have made dear friends since I’ve entered this community of practitioners and students and that has also been deeply enriching in ways that are invaluable.
After years of learning astrology, studying with Mychal Bryan for 4 weeks this summer has finally made me feel as if I can actually go out into the world with confidence and read a horoscope professionally and using traditional techniques that are so hard to learn on your own! Mychal is a wonderful teacher, not only is he a goldmine of information about many different astrological techniques, but he also teaches with lots of humor & patience and he makes you feel like you are tapping into magical ancient wisdom. I cannot recommend him enough as an astrology teacher!
At the Oraculos School of Astrology, we don’t just teach you how to speak astrology, we teach you how to be an astrologer. We offer an in-depth, hands-on astrological training that gives you all he tools you need to be a shining star within this industry. One of the central pillars of our approach to teaching is accuracy in concrete astrological prediction.
At OSA, you will learn a systematic approach to all branches of client-based astrology so that you can give readings that are accurate, clear, and powerful. Your astrological practice and abilities will be forged in an environment that will push you to becoming the best astrologer you can be and you’ll be supported by a community of people who all share that goal.
