Astrological Association (AA)
The AA of Great Britain was formed by a group of astrologers from the Astrological Lodge, which had been founded by Alan Leo in 1915. The two most prominent members were John Addey, who originated the theory of harmonics, and Roy Firebrace, the sidereal astrologer and founder of the magazine, Spica. They were backed by Charles Carter and many other prominent Lodge members. The founding members’ main purpose was to bring astrology out of the fringe and into society’s mainstream. Throughout the sixties and seventies the AA pursued a triple track programme, encouraging philosophical depth, psychological understanding and scientific research. Today the AA has about 1,600 members, 1,000 in the UK and the rest around the world. The AA organizes seminars and an annual conference. It issues four publications including the Journal, (published six time a year) a forum for high quality debate and discussion, Correlation, an academic level bi-annual journal on astrological research and the Medical Astrology Newsletter which is the only journal in the world devoted to medical astrology.

Astrological Psychology Association (APA)
The Astrological Psychology Association (APA) formerly API-UK, was established with Bruno & Louise Huber’s co-operation in 1983, since then we have taught students living in many countries around the world.
Our organization has evolved into a membership association, with a regular magazine, Conjunction, and a wide range of publications available through an on-line bookshop, which aim to keep all interested in astrological psychology abreast of developments.
What has become known as ‘The Huber Method’ supplements the best of the psychological knowledge in traditional astrology with the results of the Hubers’ own psychological researches.
In our accredited Foundation and Diploma courses we give English speaking students the opportunity to study and use the Hubers’ psychological approach to horoscope interpretation. We teach the theory about the psychological motivations to be found in a birth chart in a manner that encourages students to develop their own self-awareness and personal growth. Many counselors, therapists and psychologists have found the Huber method a useful addition to their techniques.
Features unique to this approach include the use of two further horoscopes in addition to the Natal Chart – the House Chart and the Nodal Chart – which give insights into how we may be conditioned by the environment and insights into our ‘shadow’ personality and the accumulated experiences of past lives.
