Ever wondered what we do at the Lodge? Come to our Open Evening and find out. Open Evening is geared towards new and recent members, and provides an opportunity to meet like-minded astrologers and find out more about the lodge. The evening begins with a welcome address from the President, Kim Farnell, who will tell you about what’s coming up for the lodge and answer any questions you might have. But instead of simply telling you what we do, we’d like to show you. So we’ll start off with a brief chart discussion for everyone to join in – that includes absolute beginners. Then it’s up to you. You can have a short reading from one of our astrologers. Or if you fancy something different, how about a tarot reading, palm reading or having your fortune told with traditional methods? Lodge members will be available to discuss astrology and Lodge activities. Or you can get to know some of the other people attending. We’ll stop for a short refreshment break at 8 pm and then reconvene for further readings and a final short chart discussion. Entry is free for those who simply want to attend and chat to like-minded people. A small charge will be made for readings. We look forward to meeting you!
Era to era comparisons are best viewed in a sidereal format which preserves aspects eroded, and eventually erased by precession. This talk will show the astrological symbolism the Anglo-American relationship—what historians and politicians often call “the special relationship.”

Ever wished you’d been alive to hear Alan Leo speak? Or Charles Carter? Here’s your chance. Over the last 100 years, the Lodge has hosted hundreds of talks. For the first term of our centenary year, classic talks from the past will be delivered every Monday night.
In 1936 the first ever British astrological conference was hosted by the Lodge in Harrogate. In memory of this, and to thank our friends in the north for their support over the years, we are holding a convention at the Crown Hotel, Harrogate.

In the 17th century astrologers such as William Lilly and Elias Ashmole gathered to eat drink and talk all things astrology. Join us in our centenary celebration as we recreate this event from the golden age of astrology.
A 17th century menu will be served, with options for vegetarians. We will raise a toast to 100 years of astrology at the Lodge, friends present and past and our success in the forthcoming century.
Guests are requested to wear 17th century costume. Advice on costuming is available, including a separate leaflet. Non-Western 17th century costume is acceptable. If you really, really insist on not dressing up, formal wear will be grudgingly accepted.
This is a once in a lifetime event and tickets are limited. Book early to secure your place!
