British professional organization for astrologers. The Astrological Association grew out of the desire of John Addey to end the chaos he found in astrological thought and practice in the 1950s. He believed he had found a uniting force in his discovery of harmonic patterns in his astrological research. The organization was founded in 1958, and among those who gave it blessings was C. E. O. Carter, the most prominent British astrologer at the time.
Addey found little enthusiasm for his harmonic theories, yet the other goals of the association have proved sufficient to maintain it as a vital organization. Addey served as president for more than a decade (1951-63) and Charles Harvey presided over the association until his death in February 2000. The association puts out two journals, Journal, published six times a year and Correlation, an academic journal published twice annually.
