International Astrology Day 2000
by Marilyn Neuner

AFAN (the Association for Astrological Networking) is winding up to celebrate the coming of Spring! Each year AFAN sponsors International Astrology Day on (or around) the March Equinox. This year, for our 8th annual IAD, AFAN is planning an ensemble of gatherings that will held all over the United States, Canada and in major centers around the world. The purpose of these events is to inform the general public about astrology, encourage networking among astrologers, and raise consciousness all around; as well as be our yearly fund-raiser for AFAN.

AFAN has some special plans for this year. Claudia Bader, AFAN Correspondence Chair, has proposed that we incorporate a Mandala project into as many IAD gatherings as possible. Here in Portland, Marilyn Neuner at CrossRoads Astrology will hold an open house and Mandala found art paint and paste party on Saturday, March 18, from 1-4 pm. There will be networking information and refreshments. Feel free to call 503-771-6361 if you have questions.

Also this year, at each event, AFAN is offering a free membership to raffle at the door. Come and try your luck! Events are already being planned in Los Angeles and San Francisco CA, Chicago IL, Portland and Eugene OR, Edmonton Alberta, Painted Post NY, Ft Myers FL, Fairfield NY, Toronto, Philadelphia and New York City. More are being planned all the time. As more events are planned, we'll post complete information on our web page ( and on our 800 line (1-800-578-AFAN). Leave a message and we'll be in touch with you.
