NCGR stands for the National Council for Geocosmic Research, an astrology organization that had its beginnings in the late 1960's and was incorporated as a non-profit organization on March 11, 1971. Our Northern Illinois Chapter was incorporated on June 24, 1983. NCGR has been around for 40 years; our chapter has been here in the Chicago area for over 25 years.

The purpose of our organization and our chapter is to help you share your interest and talents with like-minded people. Astrology gives us an assurance of the fundamental order of the universe. We recognize cycles, patterns and rhythms in our lives. We see that as above—in the orderly movement of the planets, satellites and stars—so below, in the meanings of events that challenge us to change, grow and live more fulfilled lives.

For some of us at NI-NCGR, years of dedicated study have made it possible for us to understand and read astrology charts, while for others members, astrology is a very new language to them. Whether professional or novice, everyone is welcomed.

We hope you will join us in learning about the Dance of the Planets, the Secret of the Stars, and the Energy of the Cosmos!
