What is Xtrology you ask? Okay you didn’t. But it’s Xtrology’s 10th Anniversary!!! Indulge me.

XTROLOGY is a stand-alone system of astrological prediction based on the work of Ptolemy, Placidus, Leo and Mason. There is no other system which produces consistent, accurate results. XTROLOGY cracked the code.

Through the centuries the empirical science of astrology has been evolving. The Babylonians in 600 B.C. invented the zodiac. Since calendars did not exist, they used observation to watch the stars. It was this civilization that brought astrology to Greece in the 4th Century, B.C. And it was there that a brilliant mathematician, astronomer and geographer, Ptolmey (Eqyptian by birth) used spherical trigonometry to create a mathematical model of the Universe on paper (without looking at the sky). He is also credited with organizing the concept of astrology based around the seven known planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) with the earth as the center of the Universe. He used a system he called primary directions.

Lulu Guinness, says “The Primary System, so called, is thus a calculation of the number of four-minute intervals during which a given planet will move from its birth position to the place where it conjoins or aspects a sensitive degree – usually the birth-position of some other planet. Then since each four-minute arc represents a year of life, it is assumed that in a given year there will be in force a directed aspect between these two bodies. Since each of these calculations are separately made and applied, the term ‘directed’ is employed.”

History has not been kind to the primary method. It has been largely forgotten due to its difficult calculation, the super degree of accuracy needed in the time (the four minute intervals) and the fact that some aspects of it remain in dispute. And, most likely, because it didn’t work.

Another hindrance to the art of astrology was that off and on throughout history laws kept popping up making the practice of astrology illegal — which in part explains the huge gap in time between the Ptolemy and Placidus in the 17th Century and then again during The Age of Enlightenment in the 18th Century.

Placidus lived from 1603-1668. According to Markab, “Placidus invented secondary progressions as a check on primary directions.” He based this theory on a day-for-a-year and the positions of the planets as they move through the ephemeris.

An enormous breakthrough happened in 1905, when Alan Leo published THE PROGRESSED HOROSCOPE. This book defines secondary progressions as they are used by astrologers today. However, this method will not produce consistently accurate results. Consequently most astrologers don’t use it at all and instead rely on transits.

Transits (the movement of the planets in the sky) are an important astrology tool. That is not in question. The father of modern day definitions for transits is Robert Hand who wrote, PLANETS IN TRANSIT. However, they foretell the mood of the situation and do not foretell actual events.

July 2009, XTROLOGY began blogging predictions significantly revising the old rules for secondary progressions. Once of XTROLOGY’s biggest contributions is the important of positive Jupiter aspects and the fact that they supersede and protect from all negative aspects. XTROLOGY calls the new day-for-a-year method ‘predictive,’ because it is not secondary. This is the first line of prediction with transits as supplemental.

If a birthday exists, a prediction can be made whether it be a city, country, company or person. My results are as accurate as the birth data I use. My predictions are public through my blog, XTROLOGY.

In the BIBLE in Ecclesiastes it says:
“I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all.”

“…time and chance happen to them all.” This is XTROLOGY, an explanation of the cycles of your life.”
