The 23rd FAA Conference will commemorate and celebrate the theme of crossroads. Astrologically the stage is set during 2020, as three major planetary pairings – Saturn/Pluto, Jupiter/Pluto & Jupiter/Saturn – are at a crossroads in their cycles:
Thematic to the conference will be the many ways astrology speaks of endings and beginnings, finales and renewals as well as the great mystery of cycles and returns, themes that congregate at the conjunction, the seed moment when the cycle is renewed. What does astrology say about the end of an era? What does it promise at this time of renewal?
All the presenters have been invited because of their unique insights, deep understanding and significant contributions to the practice of astrology. Conference lectures will cover a myriad of aspects and approaches to astrology, all bound together by the unifying spirit of the art.
2020 will also mark the final conference in the FAA series of conferences that began January 23, 1976 – all of which have been held near the Australia Day holiday and mostly in university settings. Each one has created a special time and place to share in our mutual respect for astrology, to forge new perspectives and to develop bonds with new friends. From this point forward the conferences will be reborn in a new format, time and setting. This conference is a celebration of the past whilst making welcome the future.
