A news service for astrology was officially launched yesterday. It is a joint undertaking by the major astrological organizations in the US, the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR), the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR), the Association for Astrological Networking (AFAN), and the American Federation of Astrologers (AFA). The site has several articles about astrology’s role in society. I just spent an hour reading articles intended to educate the media and students of astrology. The site is www.astrologynewsservice.com. Naturally there are several articles that address the recent media frenzy about how we astrologers should add one or more signs to our zodiacal signs. “The recent media flap that had astronomers inventing a new astrological sign and dredging up dated anti-astrology polemics to tweak believers is another example of scientists behaving badly, a Philadelphia-area science historian believes.” Read his post. Stephen Forrest writes about the role of astrology and Richard Tarnas discusses the role of astrology. Check it out, the commentary about the Zodiac and Constellations by Diana K. Rosenburg and you might just find the right words to explain the power of astrology to your friends and clients; many of them after all only wish to know if their sign changed overnight.
