Here’s a sampling of some of the questions I am asked most frequently.
Q: Does Uranian Astrology deal with the planet Uranus?
A: Yes, but no. The word Uranian is derived from Uranus, but it refers to a special group of hypothetical planets that lie beyond the orbit of Pluto and the Kuiper Belt. Uranus rules the sign of Aquarius and we are in the Aquarian Age. Uranian astrology is the Astrology of the Aquarian Age, which is why it is given this name.
Q: What do you mean by “hypothetical planet?” Is the Uranian System real?
A: When German astrologer Alfred Witte worked in the Armed Forces, he knew there were always unexplained events that could not be explained in the horoscope using the traditional planets (Sun-Pluto). He hypothesized 4 planets and referred to them as “energy centers,” which gives the planets a more archetypal feel, though are still used in horoscope interpretation, although rarely. Astrology gave birth to the modern science of astronomy, but there are still differences in how each field uses math and the hard science in order to hypothesize planets. We know of their orbits and movement by degree, but little or nothing is known about their mass, center of gravity, or other important mathematical pieces to pinpoint a planet or asteroid. To this day, no hard evidence has proved their existence, but astronomers currently believe there are an infinite number of planets out there, so they do indeed exist, but where is another story. Uranian astrologers known them to be real because of how shockingly accurate our methods are.
Q: What’s the difference between Uranian and Symmetrical Astrology?
A: “Symmetrical Astrology” refers to a term coined by Gary Christen that’s synonymous with Uranian, but encompasses every type of astrology that uses planetary symmetries. For example, Cosmobiology, an offshoot of Uranian created by Reinhold Ebertin (or Reinhold Epstein, his German name) is a type of symmetrical astrology, but doesn’t use the TransNeptunian planets. More recently, there’s been a resurged interest in Babylonian Astrology because of how the ancients initially discovered geometry in the skies, but many of these facets have yet to be researched in terms of how Alfred Witte expanded on these concepts.
Short answer, “Uranian Astrology” is unclear by name, since many people don’t really know what it refers to. “Symmetrical Astrology” immediately resonates with laypeople.
Q: I’d like to work with you but don’t know my birth time. Is that okay?
A: Absolutely! One of the beautiful things about Uranian is the ability to gain meaningful information without a precise time. Unfortunately, though, the faster parts of the horoscope (Ascendant, Midheaven, Moon, Vertex) can’t be considered, so you’ll be missing out on several major Personal Points, and for every four minutes of time inaccuracy, your predictions will be off by a month. If you’re unsure, be sure to inquire about rectification services, which are at a nominal rate.
Q: What’s do you mean by “The Promise?”
A: Aside from being a reference to one of my favorite piano pieces, this term specifically relates to why you chose to incarnate, what you came to learn, and how this potential is achieved through your specific gifts, skills, and talents. I cover this extensively in the Basic Analysis reading.
Q: Do you only use Uranian Astrology?
A: Mostly, if not exclusively. Uranian is such a powerful standalone system, there’s generally no need for traditional, Western Astrology. It’s always worthwhile to look at a chart under the traditional lens, which I’ll certainly spend some time with, but the dial work shows everything under a magnifying glass. I won’t say I completely reject traditional methods, as they do have their place, but I make it a point to make at least 75% of the focus on planetary symmetries and geometry.
Q: Why does my horoscope never make sense?
A: It probably has to do with the fact you’re reading a highly generalized horoscope, like what you’d find in a newspaper or email newsletter. I used to write newspaper horoscopes for bowling (don’t ask), so I completely understand where you’re coming from. When I worked on that assignment, I always applied different methods to write a meaningful column, and my readers were always surprised by how accurate their horoscope was. I realize not all horoscope columnists have the luxury of working with Uranian, but you’re more likely to gain accurate insighy by reading your Moon or Conceptional horoscope. When you have an astrological consult with me, you’ll be blown away by all the things you’re told that nobody has ever said before.
Q: Do you offer e-mail readings?
A: Yes! Email readings are made available in the Full Analysis package.
Q: Is my husband cheating on me?
I don’t know, let me call him and find out!
In all seriousness, Uranian is so insightful, you don’t need to be psychic; Uranian is the psychic itself! From an ethics standpoint, I don’t answer questions about dark subjects such as infidelity or death because it creates a psychological nightmare for both me and you. If something like this catches my attention, I’ll word things in a way to get your attention, and it’s up to you to handle those actions. But no, I won’t outright tell you that your spouse is cheating, or that a family member is about to cross into another state of being.
Q: What are your other specialties?
A: I’m a Uranian Astrologer, with knowledge of Galactic and Evolutionary Astrology, several types of Cartomancy systems, Pythagorean Numerology, channeling, Esoteric Linguistics, and Energy Medicine. My research interests include Spanish translation of Uranian materials, and Gambling Astrology. I even teach piano!
