The American Federation of Astrologers is America’s oldest and most well known astrologer professional organizations. The bulk of the information on this website is for astrologers and those who want to learn astrology. This isn’t a governing organization, but it is a longstanding, well-respected one advocating for astrology as a science. Like the bar or the medical board, astrologers hoping to join must pass a test to prove their worthiness. The AFA is also a publisher, putting out some of the most recognized and best-selling astrology books on the market today.
If you want to take a course in astrology, you really can’t beat the AFA. Taking their course will prepare you for taking their test, and it’s (slightly) cheaper than the courses offered by other associations or groups. For those who don’t want to become professional astrologers, you can still get some things out of this site. Check out Sun Signs on the menu. They’re pretty good, and they’re written by a professional master astrologer. I especially like the power phrases after each horoscope.
The biggest draw is the bookstore. After you scroll down the eyesore that is their online catalog, open the .pdf so you can actually read it, or simply peruse the offerings below. They have books for the beginner, the intermediate astrologer, and the advanced and professional as well.
Now, if you’re looking for an AFA certified astrologer, you can find one here using their directory. You may recognize some of the names on the list. Almost all of them have websites or email addresses.
