The 27th Annual International Astrology Day will be announced in early 2020, and will fall around the time of the Vernal Equinox!

What is International Astrology Day?
In 1993, AFAN founded International Astrology Day, an outgrowth of Astrology Awareness Weekend.

IAD is celebrated on the Vernal Equinox, or the first day (in the Tropical Zodiac) of Aries. The new holiday was brought into being with the hope it would expand networking opportunities and promote positive aspects of astrology both within the astrology community and to the public at large.

Over the years IAD has grown into a powerful and festive event, with gatherings held in countless locations across the globe. IAD celebrations can be found in shops, educational centers, and public spaces. Some events are held on the day itself while others take place on the weekend before or after the day in honor of the holiday.

Today, with the advent of technology, people also gather virtually, attending webinars or online conferences enabling astrologers and astrology enthusiasts alike to gather in one place from around the world.

In addition to more formal lectures, casual gatherings are held in peoples’ homes around the world to honor the day and this stellar cosmology.

As the originators of this day, we at AFAN would love to know how you are planning on celebrating IAD in 2019.

Join us on Tues., Jan. 14, 2020, 5 pm-6:30 pm Pacific Time, for our next Town Hall meeting! We’ll be discussing the 27th Annual International Astrology Day! As the originators of this holiday, we at AFAN would love to know how you plan to celebrate. Will you hold an event with your local astrology group, host a webinar or online conference, have a potluck in someone’s home? Join us to share ideas for celebrating within our community and taking the opportunity to promote astrology positively to the public at large!
