AstroWiki by Astrodienst is a free encyclopedia of astrology. It collects the knowledge of the astrological community and makes it available to everybody. Everyone can read Astrowiki without the need to register.

To seed the wiki instead of starting with an empty one, Astrodienst has acquired the right to re-publish the content of two astrological printed encyclopedias published in Germany. They were translated into English by Astrodienst. This is the reason why currently a lot of the content refers to astrological schools and techniques popular in the German speaking countries. We are sure that this will change with the future development of AstroWiki.

New and Revised Pages

While everybody can register (create an account), this has little additional advantage. The only additional feature for registered users is access to the 'special pages' and the possibility to take part in the discussion pages. There you can make comments or propose additional wiki content, though only the user group with 'editor' status can make changes to the wiki articles or add new articles.
