Conference was a great success!

(October 18, Seattle, Washington) Approximately 80 astrologers gathered in Seattle for a weekend of presentations and seminars. Attendees learned practical skills in developing, promoting and maintaining a successful and fulfilling astrological practice.

A collage of happy participants from the conference.

This conference was sponsored by ProSIG, a Special Interest group of NCGR (The National Council on Geocosmic Research) and the Organization for Professional Astrology.

StarIQ was represented at the conference by its founders, Rick Levine and Jeff Jawer, and Communications Director, Gail Goldberg. Rick delivered a presentation entitled, "Astrology and the Internet." He also participated in a panel discussion called, "The Future of Astrology."

"Astrologers at Work" was an important conference. Astrology, as a profession, is not generally recognized or understood. Although there are thousands of highly qualified professional astrologers offering their services, the astrology industry is not a regulated industry. It is more like a community of individual practitioners, local associations, schools, and hobbyists. ProSIG and the Organization for Professional Astrology are leading the way in efforts to address issues that will continue bring the profession of astrology more into the mainstream.
