Below is an excerpt from chapter 27 on celestial geometry in my new book: Fast Track Astrologer: The Book I Wish I Had When I Became an Astrologer.
“When you enter birth information into an astrology software program, a Natal chart magically appears. The Natal chart is a two-dimensional (2-D) picture of a particular configuration in the three-dimensional (3-D) cosmos. It’s useful to understand the 3-D cosmological picture and to draw connections with the 2-D Natal chart. I know many of you cringe at the thought of geometry, so we will proceed slowly, step by step.”
In this chapter, I construct a 3-D picture in the cosmos and then portray and discuss the equivalent 2-D natal chart. Geometrically, I show how the astrology houses are determined using the Krusiński method, which is rapidly being adopted for its accuracy and simplicity.
Bogdan Krusiński, a resident of Poland and mechanical engineer / astrologer invented this system in the mid-1990′s. In my conversations with Bogdan, we both felt it was a good idea to put this chapter on Bogdan’s astrology web as the use of 3-D pictures more clearly conveys the Krusiński house system than just using words.
Bogdan and I would both like the astrological community and those new to astrology to understand that this is the only house system that does not distort the sky from the perspective of the birth location – and is geometrically simple and pure as is the rest of the calculations for a natal chart.
You can view chapter 27 in my new book at Bodgan Krusiński’s Astrologia web site.
I was recently on KSFR – Santa Fe, NM Living Juicy radio show.
The subject was primarily focused on the world-wide major astrological configuration in play and how it relates to our current monetary system.

A couple of years ago (September 2009) I wrote a blog titled “Battle of the Titans” about a very powerful planetary configuration consisting of Pluto, Uranus, Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn. Pieces of this configuration continue to be with us through 2015. This blog is an update on this configuration as well as a scenario analysis on how it could potentially play out with our global monetary system. Continue reading
Initiating a new project or venture using astrology is a bit of detective work as well as trial and error. As an astrologer, I like to find the best of the situation knowing that there are always constraints to be navigated.
This blog takes you through an actual scenario so you can see one way in which the timing of projects/ventures can be accomplished. Before proceeding, I caution you that this gets a bit technical – in other words – it will make sense to an astrologer and may not make complete sense to the layman. With that in mind……
New Project Specifications
My client wants to launch a new series of exquisite ceramic tea cups for her business. She would like the venture to be expansive, yet practical in implementation. Furthermore, she would like the energy of creativity and spirituality in her designs. Finally she would like the venture to generate money and grow in sales globally. It is now July 26, 2011 at her location in Santa Fe, NM (MDT) and she would like to launch her venture within the next month.
The first half of my career was steeped in rocket science and aerospace engineering. I spent the bulk of those 13 years analyzing the designs of guidance systems for nuclear tipped ballistic missiles. As with virtually all people in this line of work, I found my own justifications for being on the “dark side.”
More importantly, I developed a negative viewpoint regarding those practices of which science either could not measure or could only measure at the fringes. For me, it didn’t matter that some of these disciplines had been successfully practiced for thousands of years and continually refined.
These practices I’m referring to include Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, I Ching, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, reiki, shamanism, all other energetic healing modalities and at the top my crap list was astrology. The science community as a whole even had a disparaging name for all these practices: pseudo-science. The view of the science community was that if they could not figure out how these practices worked, then they must be fraudulent. Furthermore, people who believed in these practices are naive and uninformed – and subject to wasting their time, money and sadly having false beliefs.
Astrologers are on full alert this summer because of a unique combination of very powerful energies which will occur back to back.
More specifically, we have this summer the following configurations occurring:
I think it would be meaningful for the start of the new decade to view the signs of the zodiac from the perspective of quotes by famous people.
Each of us is born with a unique combination of energies, represented by the luminaries (planets) (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) – and we mature with the use of these energies throughout our lives.
Each of our luminaries (planets) have characteristics represented by the signs of the zodiac (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces).
In this blog, I selected famous quotes which I feel are excellent and positive representations for each of the 12 signs of the zodiac.
Astrologically, we are in the midst of two significant planetary configurations which will be substantially in effect from 2008 to 2015 and peaking in the middle of 2010. One of these two configurations was similarly present during the great depression (1929 – 1934) and the revolutionary war (1774 – 1777). The other configuration was present at times of rebirth including the beginning of the Age of the Renaissance (late 15th and 16th centuries).
