Welcome to the Network  for Objective Research in Astrology (NORA)

Astrology today needs to go through the same process of enlightenment, a coming of age, as most other scientific disciplines experienced in the 17th and 18th centuries. It was at that time when reason, inquiry and freedom of thought prevailed over faith, tradition and authority. It is no accident that Uranus was discovered during this period (in 1781). While this revolutionary event shattered the Ptolemaic structure built on the seven sacred planets, more than 230 years later astrology still lacks a rational base that would loosen its medieval shackles. And several thousand years into its history, the astrological framework is still at the mercy of Platonic ideals, with no direct linkage to experiential proof.

Our vision is an enlightened, rational and objective astrology, for which suitable models, theories and mechanisms are developed methodically on the basis of scientific evidence. Our mission is making this transition happen together with a network of dedicated researchers (more).

Several projects are in the incubation stages now. A comprehensive encyclopedia of astrology is being assembled to define, demarcate and refine our discipline (Astropedia). A much-overdue literature review is being undertaken to provide the foundation for further research. As a first step, The Lunar Effect Bibliography was published in September 2017, to pave the way for these reviews. Scientific research is being conducted to gather the evidence needed for developing enduring models and theories (Research). To support all these activities, an astrological research organization has been founded (CORA). 

In January 2028, some 247 years after the discovery of Uranus, Pluto will return to its original position in the sign of Aquarius, and it is our goal to complete by that time the first phase of the enlightenment of astrology.
