22nd FAA Astrology Conference

January 18 – 21, 2018

Melbourne, Australia

Transforming the Tradition
Towards an Intelligent Fusion of Past and Present


The 22nd International FAA astrology conference will be a memorable journey into participating in the transition and transformation of our tradition. This conference is dedicated to honouring the divisions in our tradition, not as separations or splits, but as representative of the diversity and breadth of astrological application and its unified capacity for marking out the human condition.

The intention of the conference is to create a learning environment to support an intelligent synthesis of past and present philosophies, procedures and practice.

The 2018 FAA Conference venue is International House (click to see on Google Maps) which is located on Royal Parade in Parkville, approximately two kilometres north of Melbourne’s CDB and a 15 minute walk from the University of Melbourne’s Parkville campus.

We welcome you to the 22nd International FAA Astrology Conference and look forward to hosting and participating in what promises to be a spectacular and memorable gathering of our astrological clan.
