NCGR Boston

The National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR) is a non-profit member organization that supports education and research exploring the relationship between cosmic patterns, earthly events and human affairs. We have the most active and accomplished astrological education system in the country. The Boston Chapter is the second largest NCGR chapter. We meet approximately once a month, September through November, and March through June, usually on Saturdays. (The New England winters and weather-related cancellations make snow-season meetings too hard on all involved.) Our workshops are dedicated to increasing astrological knowledge and to providing a sense of community for those interested in astrology. All who are interested are welcome.

The Exactitude and Power of the Anaretic Degrees (29°)

Through the observation of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, we see how active and alive the Gods are during certain cycles. They remind us of their extreme power during uncertain times. Yet there are compelling positive cycles that they must conclude to exactitude in their journey of reaching 29º 59’59” of a sign, affecting the Globe and individuals’ personal growth.

The Sky Gods are humbly aware that these metamorphic cycles will take us into 2026 and beyond until we fully comprehend them. We will explore this fascinating and compelling degree in the outer planetary personalities and cycles, as well as individuals’ charts. An Anaretic planet might not be ‘fated’ but rather a sign of anticipation for something better to emerge.

(Uranus heralded individual freedom and with it the American and French Revolutions; Pluto brought atomic […]


A Universe Within by Mark Wolz

Consider the universe as a vibrant, pulsating field of energy. Stars radiate light, planets rotate and revolve through their cycles, asteroids shuttle around in their orbits, comets streak along their paths. Now look into an electron microscope: Every molecule is a field of energy; the atoms are clusters of neutrons, protons and electrons swirling about. […]


Astrology and Relationships By Pat Taglilatelo

Can you relate to these scenarios?  You meet a potential love interest and immediately begin counting the ways your charts interact. “Your Moon makes a trine to my Ascendant; my Moon conjoins your Venus.  And your Ascendant forms a sextile to my Midheaven.” You look forward to getting to know this person better. Or perhaps […]
