Astrology News Service

News and information agency for the astrological community


In 2010, major astrology organizations in the U.S., including the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR), the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR), the Association for Astrological Networking (AFAN), and the American Federation of Astrologers (AFA) began a discussion about the need to proactively improve astrology’s public image. The organizations agreed to work together to create the Astrology News Service (ANS), a non-profit news and information agency for the astrological community. In 2011, the Organization for Professional Astrology (OPA) joined the ANS, and the Urania Trust (UT) joined in 2018.
