ncgr-sf aboutTony Joseph started the SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA CHAPTER of the National Council for Geocosmic Research in 1975. The chapter has hosted lectures, workshops and conferences (both in-person and online) since its inception. 

Our parent organization is the The National Council for Geocosmic Research, Inc., (NCGR) a non-profit organization with whom the San Francisco chapter shares the vision to raise the standards of astrological education and research. Though it began as “national,” NCGR’s current membership of about 2500 includes a growing number of international members.

NCGR national’s activities include sponsoring local Chapters (currently 28 located in 26 states and 4 countries). Additionally, several Special Interest Groups (SIGs) cross wide geographical areas to foster dialogue among people of similar astrological specialties.

Professionally certified astrologers among NCGR members have passed all four levels of an education and testing program based on a comprehensive curriculum widely respected for its excellence and rigor.

Though there is no requirement that NCGR members be practicing astrologers, over 1000 members have participated in the testing program at Level 1 or above and momentum is growing.

A Code of Ethics, to which members are accountable, provides guidance for the practice of astrology.

NCGR annually sponsors an educational conference, and publishes two issues of its magazine Geocosmic Journal plus newsletters, and MemberLetter. A variety of other publications are produced intermittently, and recordings of conference lectures are also offered.

President Gemini Brett The world might not have ended in 2012, but Gemini Brett’s certainly underwent a wholesale death and rebirth.
