Upcoming NCGR Philly Events
We hold regular meetings and workshops that are open to both NCGR members and the public over age 18 (or younger if accompanied by a parent). In addition, we host activities specifically designed for astrology professionals and people new to astrology. Check back often, because we frequently update the schedule.
Unless we state otherwise, all events are held at The Community Center at GIANT, 315 N. York Rd, Willow Grove, PA 19090. Our Sunday general meetings begin at 1:30 pm with doors open at 1:00. Then, we invite you to join us afterwards and keep the conversation going at one of Willow Grove’s local eateries.
There is ample free parking. The meeting location is four blocks from the Willow Grove train station on SEPTA’s regional rail Warminster line.
Pre-registration is recommended. Send your check made out to “NCGR” to our Treasurer, Olivia H Stoner, 2112 Walnut St., 2nd Fl, Philadelphia, PA 19103-4873 or click on the PayPal link below.
Regarding the COVID-19 Crisis
Our first priority is your health and safety. At the same time, we want to keep astrology alive, well and accessible for our members and friends in the Philadelphia region.
The government has indicated that social distancing is necessary. As a result, beginning with our April program, regular meetings for NCGR Philadelphia will be online in a webinar format.
We also realize that some people are experiencing severe economic repercussions as a result of this time of national emergency. It may not be easy for such members to afford to attend meetings. As such, for those that can afford it, we are asking for a donation of $10 to attend. For those that cannot afford it due to this time, the meeting will be free to attend.
For the specific workshop in April, we will charge an online webinar fee (reduced to $25 as we would not be utilizing the meeting space at that time) as that is an extensive presentation by the workshop presenter.
We hope everyone stays healthy in this tough time. Whenever this national health emergency ends, we will resume normal operations for meetings. In the meantime, we will continue to keep you updated.
The Board of NCGR Philadelphia Chapter
The 2020 Presidential Election: A Panel Discussion
2020 finds us mired in madness, civil unrest, a raging pandemic, as the future of the world’s lone superpower hangs in the balance. It’s fall and the spectacle of the US presidential election is just around the corner. Join us as our panel of three astrologers weighs in on the upcoming election from very different astrological perspectives. You won’t want to miss this event, taking place less than six weeks before the big day. Expect lively discussion and new insights.
Meet our three Panelists
Alex is a professional writer and astrologer, past president of Philadelphia Astrological Society, previous Board member of NCGR’s Philadelphia chapter, and contributing editor for NCGR’s Enews Commentary. He is the author of “The Black Hole Book”, detailing Deep Space points in astrological interpretation, and the upcoming “Heaven on Earth”, chronicling asteroid effects on terrestrial events. His pioneering work with Black Holes began in 1991, when his progressed Sun unwittingly fell into one, and he has been reporting the effects of asteroids and other minor bodies of the solar system since 2005. His website, www.AlexAsteroidAstrology.com, provides in-depth asteroid-based commentary on politics, current events, and celebrities in the news, as well as an extensive research section on mythic-named asteroids.
Alison a new student to the study of astrology is no novice in the field of history. Influenced by her family’s appreciation of history from a young age, Alison has spent much of her professional life studying various subjects in the field. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in history from West Chester University in 2006 and continued her educational career by earning her Master’s degree in Central and Eastern European Studies at La Salle University in 2008, with her Master’s thesis focused on Germany and the outbreak of the First World War. Having completed this course of study and returning home to Bucks County, Alison has focused her research in the last few years on a subject dear to her since her youth: the American Civil War. She is an active member of the Bucks County Civil War Roundtable (BCCWR) and is currently working on a book titled The Boys of Bucks: The 104th PA Regiment in the American Civil War, a new regimental history focusing on the men who served from Bucks County. Outside the field of history, Alison is an accomplished professional musician, having conducted various ensembles in Bucks County (both choral and instrumental) in the past several years, which she continues to do to this day. She also serves as Vice President of the National Council for Geocosmic Research Philadelphia chapter.
Ellen combines her professional experience in the private sector, entrepreneurship, and government with astrological knowledge to bring a grounded, practical perspective to her clients. She is a life-long news and political junkie, as befits her 11th House Sun, Moon and Mercury placements. She holds a Certified Astrology Professional (CAP) designation from the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR), serves as President of the National Council for Geocosmic Research Philadelphia chapter, and has authored the astrological chapters Pet Fashion Almanacs every year since 2014. She works with clients on a one-to-one basis, teaches classes and lectures. Her goal as a practitioner is to help you connect with your own inner wisdom, strength, and power through the timeless and profound wisdom of astrology.
