Originally founded in 1958 as The Astrological Association of Great Britain, the Association became a charitable incorporated organisation (No. 1152804) on 10th July 2013. The AA continues to act as a central resource to both the public and all other astrological organisations. It is generally considered to be one of the most important and influential astrological organisations in the world. Membership is open to all those with a serious interest in astrology and who are in agreement with the aims and objectives of The Astrological Association. There are tiers of membership ranging from a basic level free of charge through to joint and overseas memberships including online and hard-copy versions of the Journal and other AA publications.
Through its five regular publications, local groups networks, e-letters, journal archives, library, MP3 collections, special interest seminars and autumn annual conference, the AA constantly encourages the best in astrology and keeps members well-informed.
Occasionally the AA also commissions the publication of books of special interest. The latest is the first edition in English of ‘The Value of Astrology’ by the veteran French astrologer Andre Barbault.
The AA’s three day Annual Conference in the UK every September is an international highlight of the year, with a range of the best UK and International speakers as well as being the major social event for the astrological community. Over the past ten years attendances have ranged from a little under 200 to more than 600 delegates.
The AA organizes a one-day Astrological Research Conference in London every second year, usually in November.
