This website is the culmination of a dream to push astrology to a new level through continuous investigations and research, and very importantly through collaboration and correspondence with others who share a similar vision of what astrology is becoming and how it can be a powerful force for good in the world. This interdisciplinary work integrates cutting edge developments in science, research methods, spirituality, and psychology into a rigorous and sophisticated field which can deliver useful applications in a wide range of areas. Although people have pursued astrology for thousands of years it is only in our current information age with powerful computational abilities, large databases, and international communication and collaboration that a revolutionary step in astrology is possible, and astrology is transformed from an ocean of anecdotal evidence and beliefs to a coherent, sophisticated field that can provide reliable and useful tools as well as exciting and inspired insights that marry science, psychology, and metaphysics.
