Heliocentric Astrologers of North America

Practitioners of astrology in the twentieth century face a common problem. Astrology is predicated on Earth as the center of the solar system, when in fact the planets, including Earth, revolve around the sun. Most astrologers have made some adjustment for this fact, but a small number have been working on a new astrological system based on the sun's central position in the solar system. Some of these astrologers, largely from Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, came together in 1982 and founded the Heliocentric Astrologers of North America.

The organization believed in promoting heliocentric astrology and reestablishing lines of communication between astrologers and members of the scientific community, especially astrophysicists and astronomers. It also published a newsletter. Last known address: 4115 Echo Dr., West Bloomfield, MI 48033.
