We hold monthly talks and lectures (prior to the pandemic this was at The Isbourne in Cheltenham), and on occasions astrology classes and workshops with national speakers, together with occasional social walks and meals.
Our usual talk format includes:
Below you can see our current programme. You can also sign up to our talk reminder service (see right).
Aquarius Severn, which has been hosting talks, classes, workshops and social events since 1981, is a not-for-profit society run by volunteers, whose aim is to educate and bring astrology to a wider audience.
Our talks are online!
In order to support our astrological community during the coronavirus crisis we moved our talks online in March 2020 and will continue online for the foreseeable future.
You can watch some of our previous webinars on our YouTube channel.
Our webinars (which use the popular Zoom platform) start at our usual time of 7.25pm (but please join from 7.15pm in order to settle in) and most will end at 8.45pm (including a 15m Q&A session at the end).
After the webinar ends there will be a further half an hour or so in which you are free to stay on and make contact with friends and acquaintances or just 'hang out' in the company of fellow astrology enthusiasts :-)
Aquarius Severn is a non-profit group run by a volunteer committee and helpers.
If you are able to give a small donation of £1 to £3 GBP (£1 is approximately US$1.40 or €1.15 - check current rates or see what £1 is in your own currency) when you register for one of our online talks, it will help us cover our monthly Zoom fees and to continue bringing you great astrological speakers. We're very grateful for any donations and you can donate more if you wish.
Please do not feel obliged however as we recognise that many are experiencing financial difficulties in the current situation.
To donate by card or paypal, go the the appropriate 'Paypal donate' button below and select how much wish to give. You can donate for multiple talks by adding donations to your shopping cart, then going to the checkout. For donations via bank transfer or cheque, please contact our Treasurer Kris at email@example.com.
If you don't already subscribe, please sign up to our newsletter and get reminders about forthcoming webinars.
For best results download the Zoom Client for Meetings on your computer or laptop. We recommend you do this now so that you are familiar with Zoom before attending your first webinar or meeting. The software will also automatically download when click the 'Click here to Join' link in your webinar registration email.
You can also experience our webinars on a tablet or smartphone - though we don't recommend the latter unless you've got very good eyesight since the presenters will be sharing horoscope chartwheels on the screen. To do so, download the Zoom Cloud Meetings app (free) at Google Play or on the Apple App Store (iPad and iPhone only).
No microphone or speakers? No problem!
If you don't have speakers (or a microphone) on or attached to your computer, don't worry, you can use a phone to listen to the talk and to speak during the social parts of the event. In the email invitations Zoom sends out when you register for a webinar, UK, US and French phone numbers to call, plus the meeting ID and password, will be included, as well as a link if calling from other countries.
Important - Your Privacy
Please be aware that if you keep your video camera/webcam switched on in a Zoom meeting that you - and what is behind you in your room - can be seen by other attendees. If you are concerned about your privacy, you can turn your camera off by clicking the 'Video' button and participants will see only a black square with your name on it. You can also rename yourself, for example using your first name only.
Aquarius Severn records the presentation section of most of our webinars and may make these available online via our YouTube account. Please be assured however that we will not include faces or other personally identifiable information. During the webinar whilst the speaker shares their presentation you may be able to see the other participants' faces, but their (and your) video thumbnails will not be included in our recordings.
We do not allow attendees to record our Zoom webinars but please be aware that an attendee can record and share the webinar online if he or she possesses the right software or technical skill.
Thurs. 6th October 7:30pm (UK time). Entrance from 7.15pm

Aquarius Severn is run on a not-for-profit basis by the unpaid committee and other volunteer helpers. Since we have moved online, our expenses are our monthly Zoom fees, speaker fees, and occasional software fees - for example to help us manage emailing registrants who aren't on our mailing list.
You can support us by giving a small donation (£1, £2 or £3) per talk, using the donation button within each talk description. Please do not feel obliged however as we recognise that many are experiencing financial difficulties in the current situation.
Our library (available to members only) is growing, after we received a large donation of books recently, and we have two library cupboards at 2 Wolseley Terrace. Members of Aquarius Severn can borrow books displayed at our talks and workshops, as well now as those we share with the Bristol and Bath Astrology Circle.
Yes we know the Sun, Moon and Node (and possibly Chiron and Pluto) aren't "planets", but it's the shorthand way of referring to them!
Fill in the form on the left and click 'Select Service'. For a free birthchart and brief interpretation, select 'Astrology Report'. Other reports, some paid, are also available.
Alternatively, for a birthchart you can store and print, click here to go to the Free Birthchart page at Astro.com. Astro.com has many resources available for free, and more if you create a free account with them. You can bring your printed birthchart to our talks.
For an interpretation, it is probably best to have a consultation with an astrologer, as it is easy to be overwhelmed by the information contained in printed or web interpretations.
