Local Astrology Groups
For queries, or to add your group, contact the Local Group co-ordinator Christine Chalklin
There are many local astrology groups throughout the UK and Ireland. Individuals who run and attend these groups work hard to promote astrology and are to be applauded for their efforts. The Astrological Association does much to encourage and support these groups, such as the free listings here on our website, the Events Calendar and our Event Days which are run in conjunction with local groups.
In addition, the AA manages a very active Facebook group dedicated to Local Groups in the UK and Ireland – please feel free to join this group and promote your own group’s events.
The AA sends out a regular newsletter to Local Group co-ordinators, and runs regular Zoom meetings to get Local Group co-ordinators together. If you’d like to be on our mailing list, would like to be listed on this page, or have any queries please contact our AA Local Groups co-ordinator, Christine Chalklin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that the Astrological Association has no formal affiliation with any of these groups and is not responsible for the activities of any of the groups listed on these pages.
Note: due to Covid-19, most of these groups are now meeting online rather than in person. Local groups have always welcomed visitors, and being online means that you can attend a local group meeting even if it’s nowhere near where you live – so this is a great opportunity to get to lots of talks! The details of each group below the map state where and when they used to meet, and probably will in the future after the pandemic is over – check out the links they give for the latest information on how to join in a meeting online.
