About NCGR Sacramento Area Chapter – Sacramento Area Astrologers
NCGR-Sac or Sacramento Area Astrologers “for short” is an eclectic group of astrologers and astrology students creating community and continuing education opportunities in the Sacramento region. In late 2010, SAA members voted to reactivate the former chapter of the National Council on Geocosmic Research (NCGR) in the Sacramento area, which operated from 1992-2005. Sacramento Area Astrologers and NCGR-Sacramento Area are now one in the same organization.
The National Council for Geocosmic Research, Inc., (NCGR) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in Massachusetts in 1971 and dedicated to raising the standards of astrological education and research. Though it began as “national,” NCGR’s current membership of about 2500 includes a growing number of international members. The organization’s activities include sponsoring local Chapters (currently 42 located in 26 states and 4 countries). Additionally, several Special Interest Groups (SIGs) cross wide geographical areas to foster dialogue among people of similar astrological specialties.
Professionally certified astrologers among NCGR members have passed all four levels of an education and testing program based on a comprehensive curriculum widely respected for its excellence and rigor. Though there is no requirement that NCGR members be practicing astrologers, over 1000 members have participated in the testing program at Level 1 or above and momentum is growing. A Code of Ethics, to which members are accountable, provides guidance for the practice of astrology.
NCGR annually sponsors an educational conference, and publishes two issues of its magazine Geocosmic Journal plus six newsletters, Memberletter. A variety of other publications are produced intermittently, and tapes of conference lectures are also offered.
lectures are also offered.
