Message from the Chair

Hello, members and friends of NCGR

Welcome to our web site! We hope that you will stay awhile, learn a bit about us and what we do, and check back often to see what's new.

NCGR is a non-profit organization incorporated in Massachusetts in 1971. Our purpose is to encourage and facilitate education and research into the cycles of correspondence between earth (geo) and cosmos.

In short, we are interested in the serious study of astrology. We seek to increase public understanding of astrology and facilitate quality, comprehensive education in the field. Although it is not necessary to be an astrologer to be a member of NCGR, many of our members are professional astrologers.

NCGR is one of the largest of astrological professional organizations, with currently 31 local Chapters and also a number of Special Interest Groups (SIG's), not bound by geographical area but instead linked via email and newsletters by mutual interest in an astrological specialty. Chapters and SIGs offer opportunities for networking, and educational as well as social contacts with others who share your interests.

We also offer opportunities to share information through our online Discussion Group, astrologyncgr, on Yahoo, and our Facebook page, and news updates via our Twitter page and Twitter newsfeed.

We also look forward to offering workshops and lectures online in the near future.

NCGR's Publications Department produces fine magazines that are highly valued as permanent bookshelf references, and an informative newsletter, as well as supplementary publications and CDs or downloadable MP3s of conference lectures. Geocosmic Journal and Memberletter are free to members. A number of interesting articles can be read on this site, and non-members may purchase back issues and other materials in our online store.

Our national board and I, the currently elected Chair, and our Executive Director welcome your questions and your feedback.

Enjoy surfing our site! I feel sure that you will find information that is interesting and useful to you. Check back often, and if you're not yet a member, we hope you'll decide to join NCGR!
