Who we are

A group for anyone interested in astrology. Everyone is welcome, no previous knowledge needed. We have regular socials as well as offer a programme of workshops where you can learn the basics or explore an aspect of astrology in depth.

The socials typically have a topic followed by general discussion. There's always space 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.

December Astro Social

Friday, December 14, 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).

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.

Introduction to Chart Reading - an astrology workshop

Introduction to Chart Reading
taught by Eva

***The class is taught by me and hosted by the Zen shop in Digbeth http://www.thezenshop.co.uk/

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!

'Whole Sign House System' at Birmingham Astrology Group

Saturday, November 3, 2018, 2:00 PM to 5:00
The Perry Tree Centre, Dovedale Road, Kingstanding
See this on the Meetup.com site here.


The Birmingham Astrology Group was started in 2006 and is based in North Birmingham. https://sites.google.com/site/birminghamastrologyclub/

I'm planning to go to their November meeting and am posting it as a meetup in case anyone wants to join. Admission is £5.

The topic is the whole sign house system. In the recent decades with the translations and publication of ancient astrological texts there has been renewed interest in traditional astrology techniques and a movement to discover what they can offer the contemporary astrologer. Part of this revival is the use of whole sign houses.

The picture shows the same chart in Placidus and whole sign.

The 907 bus goes from the city centre directly to the venue every 20 minutes.

Chart Study Group - focus on family

Thursday, October 25, 2018, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Second Cup Coffee, 64 New Street · Birmingham

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 of the first meeting will be families of origin, the circumstances of the home life, the presence or absence of parent figures and siblings, their characteristics and relationships between them as reflected in the natal chart.

If you feel open to discussing your own chart with the group, your live feedback about the interpretations would be very valuable but it is not necessary and you are welcome to bring any chart that you find interesting or relevant to the topic. Knowledge of the pe…

Friday, October 19, 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 October evening.

I'm not giving this any theme to keep things open and invite chance and synchronicity to enter our circle and hopefully create some unplanned magic. We usually talk in astrological terms at times but everyone is welcome, no matter their experience of astrology so far. And if astrology is the language of the universe, sometimes the best way to learn a language is by immersion in the culture! There is always space to look at people's charts if they wish and the conversation often meanders into other spiritual, philosophical as well as ordinary topics.

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 si…
