Astrology Restored

Astrology Conference Reviews: Cape Town

“Astrology Restored: Bridging Epochs and Traditions” was the name of the conference held in Cape Town South Africa from 6-11th November 2015. Set in Shamballah Tea House, a beautiful farm across from the Cape Point Nature Reserve, the conference was 100% adventure. Astrology Restored was organised by Ana Carrapichano and Richard Fidler with advice and assistance from Michelle Gould and Nancy Massing, Rod Suskin and many other brilliant Cape Town astrologers. The perfect team to bring a dream to life. The story behind the conference is an interesting one. The intention to organise a conference was solemnly set during the […]

UAC Chicago Alex Trenoweth

Astrology Conference Review: UAC Chicago

UAC Chicago in 2018 was nothing short of amazing. How many astrologers can fit on a boat? (The answer is 750). And how many astrologers can you fit into a hotel? I think the final count on astrologers in a hotel was 1500. To be honest, I don’t mind too much. This was a highly successful conference for me (as well as many others) and it gets my “Jupiter Award” for bringing together so many people, for providing so many opportunities and for getting me to church on a Sunday morning with a hangover. Expensive? Yes but I (eventually) recovered […]

Alex Trenoweth in Perugia

Astrology Conference Review: Perugia Italy

If you ever think to yourself “Gosh, I’d really like to go to an astrology conference that is steeped in history” then Perugia, Italy is your place. The Associazione Cultural Jayavidya holds its annual conference in June every year. It’s a one day conference, leaving you with plenty of time to explore magnificent and near by Rome. Or to just spend time exploring Perugia. Or to just soak in the culture and eat glorious food. Aside from astrology, Perugia is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in a different culture. Beautifully organised by Nunzia Meskalila Coppola, this is a conference I […]

astrology and education: transition edition

Back to School with Astrology: Transition Edition

Pupils born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007 will be gearing up to start secondary school in September. The transition process from primary school to secondary school is exciting but can be a worry for teachers, parents and especially the pupils. Welcome to Back to School: Transition Edition! I’m a real teacher. I’m also a real astrologer. And this is my real advice for parents and teachers who are preparing their children/pupils for the first year of secondary school. That Transition Gap Studies show that pupils who are new to secondary school experience a dip in academic performance. […]

ISAR 2016

Astrology Conference Review: ISAR 2016

Been going to the same Astrology Conferences year after year? It’s time to get out of the same old routine! ISAR 2016 wins my prize for “Best Connections” and it’s a conference well worth attending if you are just starting to branch out as an astrologer. Best Connections, ISAR I first attended ISAR’s biennial conference in 2014. It marked the very start of my career as an international astrologer (I had spoken at UAC in 2008 but was working full time as a teacher so wan’t able to travel much). My book “Growing Pains” had come out the year before […]

Wonderful astrology conference in Belgrade

Astrology Conference Review: International Balkan (Belgrade)

Been going to the same astrology conferences year after year? It’s time to get out of the same old routine! Astrology-a field of study that is rapidly gaining interest-needs good quality schools that students can be proud of. The International Balkan Astrology Conference takes place every March in Belgrade. Since 2001, organisers Aleksander Imsiragic, President of ISAR (which is an affiliate sponsor of IVC), and medical doctor, author and astrologer Lea Imsiragic have been inviting astrologers from all over the world to present their lectures to the students of their affiliated school, the Johannes Kepler Institute. Lea is also the […]

Astrology Conference Reviews: Institute of Vedic Culture (IVC)

About IVC Kolkata IVC Kolkata (the full name is The Institute of Vedic Culture for Public Welfare Conference) and its affiliated school Krishnamurti Institute of Astrology (KIA) have been conducting astrology conferences for a full Saturn cycle.

NORWAC Alex TrenowethConference Awards

Astrology Conference Review: NORWAC

The Northwest Astrology Conference (NORWAC) has the tagline “where you won’t get lost in the crowd”. I have to concur that the NORWAC crowd is super friendly and eager to engage. Everywhere I turned, there were other astrologers who wanted to talk to me (or I wanted to talk to them). It just seemed everyone treasured their time together. NORWAC meets yearly in June. Located near Seattle Washington, USA, this far-flung conference location takes a bit of devotion to reach. It’s a flight across the Pacific for Australian and Asian astrologers and a trans-continental flight for East Coast Americans. I flew […]

Alex Trenoweth Astrology Conference Award

Astrology Conference Review: Kepler (Canaveral Research)

Been going to the same Astrology Conferences year after year? It’s time to get out of the same old routine! Astrological research is where it’s at! The Kepler Astrology Conference, on beautiful Cocoa Beach Florida, is an astrology conference with a difference: the speakers are all nerds! We test astrology principles. It’s better than just regurgitating what astrologers before us have said. After all, astrologers before us did not have the technology we have now. Personally, I like astrology to have a practical purpose. As the venue is on a beach, it is a welcome break from the terrible winter […]

Astrology Conference Review: Portugal

Been going to the same Astrology Conferences year after year? It’s time to get out of the same old routine! The 1st International Astrology Conference in Portugal took place from 24th to 26th of February 2017 at the Fórum da Maia. The conference venue was very modern and in the city centre, making it very easy to explore the local area, taste the wonderful cuisine and practice a few Portuguese phrases. On a very practical note, with the British pound being strong against the euro, this conference was very affordable for attendees outside of Portugal and expenses were very easy on the wallet. I […]
