Who we are

A group for anyone interested in astrology. Everyone is welcome, no previous knowledge needed. About once a month we meet for an 'Astro Social' and starting from March 2019 the plan is to run a weekly programme of workshops where you can learn the basics or explore an aspect of astrology in depth.

The socials are a space to meet likeminded people and chat about everything astrology and beyond. There's always a chance to have your questions answered by astrologers or get a mini reading of your chart. If you're a seasoned chart reader yourself your contribution will help us all learn which is one of the objectives of the group. We often bring Tarot cards as well.

Whether you are a professional astrologer or someone who's always wondered what it's all about but never got round to finding out, we look forward to meeting you!
Find us on Facebook and Meetup.

The Sun has just gone into Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, which marks the Spring Equinox and the start of the astrological year. It's time for our March social!

As usual, there's no particular topic, the point is simply to meet likeminded people interested in astrology. Feel free to bring a chart to look at, astrology books you're reading or any astrology related questions you may have. Tarot cards are very welcome too.

We'll meet at Tim Hortons cafe on New Street as before.

With all planets still direct this month and Uranus about to leave Aries where it's been since 2010, here's the February social.

As usual, there's no particular topic, the point is simply to meet likeminded people interested in astrology. Feel free to bring a chart to look at, astrology books you're reading or any astrology related questions you may have. Tarot cards are very welcome too.

Tim Hortons cafe on New Street was OK last time so let's stick with it for the moment.

January Astro Social

Tim Hortons, New Street, Birmingham

Ideally please RSVP through the Meetup site (free to join).

The first meetup of 2019 is here! Currently we are in that once-every-year window when all the planets are direct. That's right, no retrogrades, full steam ahead.

As usual, let's meet for a cup of something and a chat about all things astrology and beyond. There's no particular topic so feel free to bring a chart to look at, astrology books you're reading or any astrology related questions you may have. Tarot cards are very welcome too.

This time we'll be trying a new venue, Tim Hortons cafe on New Street. It's just round the corner from Caffe Nero where we met before but stays open till later. Will try to get a table upstairs.

December Astro Social

Caffe Nero, 8/9 Lower Temple St, Birmingham, B2 4JD, Birmingham

Ideally please RSVP through the Meetup site (free to join).

Let's get together one more time before 2018 is over!
Astrologically, the year has brought many shifts, especially Saturn and Jupiter each entering their home sign, Capricorn and Sagittarius and Uranus making his first tentative visit in Taurus.

There's no particular topic so feel free to bring a chart to look at, astrology books you're reading or any astrology related questions you may have. Tarot cards are very welcome too.

The cafe where we meet is just outside New Street station, across the tram line. We'll try to get a table downstairs where it's quieter and I'll put a sign on the table so everyone can find us.

Astrology is an excellent tool for understanding ourselves and others. These days it’s fairly easy to find a website or software that will cast a chart but how do you start interpreting it?

This workshop will give an overview of three basic building blocks of an astrology chart: houses and hemispheres, sign elements and sign modalities. These have been chosen as a starting point because analysing and combining them provides an outline of the personality behind the chart.

The workshop is suitable for beginners, no previous knowledge of astrology needed. Those with some understan…

November Chart Study Group - focus on relationships and synastry

Thursday, November 22, 2018, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Second Cup Coffee, 64 New Street · Birmingham


Hosted by Eva

Please RSVP through Meetup.com (free to join).



No matter how many astrology books we read, nothing can replace the practice of reading charts. That's why I'd like to gather together a small study group where we do just that, focusing on one topic at a time.

This is intended for people with some understanding of astrology but it could also be a good way to learn so beginners are welcome.

The topic this month is synastry or the astrology of relationships where we look at how two natal charts interact with each other. Lets look at some famous partnerships, whether working or romantic.

You are welcome to bring any charts that you find interesting or relevant to the topic. Knowledge of the people's biographies will help. I will bring a handful of examples as well.

This is a searchable database of publicly available charts: https://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Main_Page

November Astro Social

Friday, November 16, 2018, 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM
Caffe Nero, 8/9 Lower Temple St, Birmingham, B2 4JD, Birmingham

Ideally please RSVP through the Meetup site (free to join).

Meet like-minded people and discuss everything astrology over a hot drink on a cold November evening. If astrology is the language of the universe, sometimes the best way to pick up a language is by immersing yourself in the culture!

There's no particular topic so feel free to bring a chart to look at, astrology books you're reading or any astrology related questions you may have. Tarot cards are very welcome too.

The cafe where we meet is just outside New Street station, across the tram line. We'll try to get a table downstairs where it's quieter and I'll put a sign on the table so everyone can find us.

PS The chart for the start of the meetup has Cancer rising, ruled by Moon in Pisces conjunct Mars, right on the Midheaven. Let's see how that plays out!
