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. These are some of the significant changes:

  • A new chart is not cast. Instead predictive planets are placed in the houses of the natal chart
  • A planet is not considered predictive until it leaves its natal sign, so all ten signs can be predictive
  • All planets are predictive in the same manner except the Moon due to its fast motion
  • A Jupiter conjunction, sextile or trine supersedes all other aspects creating a Jupiter effect
  • All definitions have been revised. Mars is the most destructive of the planets. Jupiter is the most beneficial
  • Transits are only used as supplemental information, however, transiting Pluto needs to be in place for a death to occur

These rules remain the same:

  • The progressed ascendant and mid-heaven are important as they change signs and houses
  • The aspects used are the conjunction, sextile, trine, inconjunct and opposition
  • The predictive planets are predictive to natal and predictive planets. (With XTROLOGY defining that  only one of the two planets needs to leave it’s natal sign). But it is also noteworthy to check predictive to transiting planets

Astrologers use one or a combination of the following:

  • Secondary directions/progressions (based on a day-for-a-year)
  • Tertiary directions/progressions (based on a month-for-a-year)
  • Converse directions/progressions
  • Solar arc (Noel Tyl, is it’s main advocate, based on a degree for a year)
  • Horary (as defined largely by Willilam Lilly)
  • Fixed stars
  • Arabic parts (or lots)
  • Helenistic (Ptolemy’s method from the Greek period)
  • Cosmobiology
  • Solar (and other) returns (which are transit-based)
  • Transits (based on the actual motion of the planets in the night sky)
  • XTROLOGY (based on the day-for -a-year work of Ptolemy, Placidus, Leo and Mason),

The only one of the above methods that will produce accurate results is XTROLOGY. After 20 years of research, XTROLOGY is the standard bearer for accurate predictions — using transits as supplementary. While famous astrologers, including Robert Hand with Project Hindsight, are looking backward for wisdom, XTROLOGY has moved into the future. Several factors contributed to my success:

  • Computers removed the tedious process of the mathematical calculations allowing many more charts to be erected for the purposes of comparison
  • I have kept detailed diaries since I was 18 years old documenting what happened on each day of my life
  • I have an unusual amount of high and low cycles
  • I started a blog in 2009 for celebrities giving me data that normal clientèle did not provide

Welcome to 21st Century astrology which I call  XTROLOGY. There are no claims of predictions by famous astrologers unless you go back to William Lilly who foretold of the great fires of London in 1666 — but his method produced mixed results. For a theory to be relevant, it must work all the time. It is thought that Evangeline Adams made accurate predictions, but she did not leave behind the key to her results. If astrologers today could predict, they would be screaming from the mountaintops. No system of prediction before XTROLOGY produced consistent results.

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.”
