History of International Astrology Day
International Astrology Day was founded by the Association For Astrological Networking (AFAN) in 1993, an outgrowth of the "Astrology Awareness Weekends" which AFAN had sponsored for several years previously. The goals of the new holiday were to expand networking opportunities among the astrological community, to direct media attention to positive aspects of astrology, and to help raise funds for local astrological groups and for AFAN's legal, media, and other networking projects.
International Astrology Day (IAD) is an annual observance/holiday celebrated by astrologers and astrology enthusiasts. It is held on the spring equinox, the day the Sun enters Aries, which is the first sign of the Tropical Zodiac, and has long been considered the astrological new year. This date was selected by a vote of AFAN Networkers when declaring the new holiday. In observance of IAD AFAN co-ordinates astrological lectures and events around the world. Local astrology groups also participate, often in co-ordination with AFAN. For anyone wanting to publicize their International Astrology Day event, or to find out about local events, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
A portion of the proceeds from the IAD - San Francisco event will be donated to AFAN.
