Astrology is comprised of several systems of divination which are based on the premise that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. The word astrology comes from the early Latin word astrologia ,which is derived from the Greek word astron (“star”) and -logia, (“study of””). Astrologia later passed into meaning ‘star-divination’ with astronomia being used as a scientific term.
Astrology dates back as far as 2000 BCE when it was used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications. The practice of Astrology spread slowly through Mesopotamia, China, Babylon, Egypt, Ancient Greece, Rome and Persia. As a result of the importation of Arabic Astrology texts into Europe, Astrology is credited with beginning the Renaissance. Many of the Royal European Courts employed major astronomers as court astrologers including Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler and Galileo.
Astrology operates on the theory of Vibrational Influence as it is explained in my Numerology page on this web site. At its core, Astrology is about the vibrational effect of large planetary bodies from within our solar system on each one of us at the time of our birth and during our lifetimes. These major planetary bodies and their relationship to one another at the time our birth influences our personality.
As the planetary bodies travel through our solar system their effect on us can change dramatically. Therefore, it is wise to know what influence they have on us during important periods of our lives. That is the job of the Astrologer.
Natal Chart Interpretation:
For a Natal Astrology chart all that is needed is some very simple information. Your chart is drawn up from the date, time and place of your birth. It is very important that your birth time is accurate. A matter of a minute can sometimes make a large difference in your chart. Without your time of birth your Astrology Chart is cut almost in half. And it would be impossible to determine your Ascending or Rising sign. The Rising sign is very important as it is a major influence on your personality.
A Natal Astrology chart can point out things about you that you did not know or have ignored. It can explain why you react to the world around you in the way that you do. It will also point out strong points, weak points, talents and preferences.
Calculating the Natal Astrology Chart:
In the good old days it took several hours to calculate the position of the heavenly bodies at the time of your birth. However, thanks to modern technology, that is no longer necessary. John uses Astrology software to calculate your chart and does the interpretation by hand. The interpretations produced by Astrology software are too general to be of any real value.
About your Natal Chart Interpretation:
Once your chart wheel has been created and interpreted John will interpret it for you in a 45 minute to 1 hour session. The session will be recorded and a download link to it will be emailed to you. The Natal Chart interpretation can be done in-person, by phone or by Skype.
About Karmic Reports:
The birth chart is circular and is divided into twelve pieces. Each section represents an arena of life experience. These are called houses in astrology. The Twelfth House, the house of self-undoing, hidden matters and the subconscious process, is explored in your chart for clues about your Karmic Past Life and how it is affecting you in this lifetime. In addition, John will be looking for aspects (the relationship of each planet to the other planets in degrees) that will also present you with clues to your Karmic Past. The chart is divided into the following sections:
- Most Important Prior Life Experiences
- Saturn (The Great Teacher)
- Jupiter (Your Karmic Gifts)
- Nodes of the Moon (Your Karmic Doorways)
- Planets in Retrograde (Reversed Energies)
It is believed that we carry karmic memories in our subconscious, and that these subconscious memories can undermine our current life efforts. When we remove the walls created by subconscious fears and guilt, we find that the path to personal transformation lies beyond. If, in your Karmic Past Life Report, you find a number of descriptions of planets placed in your twelfth house, consider exploring your hidden self through past life regression.
A Karmic Past Life report is prepared with the same birth information that is used to develop your Natal Chart. Your Karmic Past Life report interpretation can be done in-person, by phone or by Skype and takes about a half of an hour.
About Compatibility Reports:
Astrological compatibility (known as Synastry) is the branch of astrology that studies relationships by comparing natal horoscopes. This comparison reveals the positive and negative aspects of the relationship that is under consideration.
The birth information for both parties is required to perform the Comparison chart. A Compatibility report interpretation can be done in-person, by phone or by Skype and takes about a half of an hour.
Astrocartography is a locational astrology system developed by the late Astrologer, Jim Lewis, that focuses on elements of the natal chart. Astrocartography maps show all locations on the earth where planets were “angular” (rising, setting, on the zenith or nadir) at the moment of an event like a person’s birth. An “angular” planet is one that is conjunct with one of these four angles (Ascendant, Descendant, MC or IC). These locations are displayed in the form of lines on the Astrocartography world map.
Your Astrocartography Chart will show the best and the worst places on Earth for you to visit or live. It is very helpful when you are considering a move to another location, purchasing a vacation home or traveling for business or pleasure.
Again, your birth information is all that is needed to develop your Astrocartography Chart. Here is an example of an Astrocartography Chart:

Note: It is strongly recommended that you have your Astrology and Numerology charts interpreted at the same time. Interpreted together, these two charts are very insightful!
