Precision in astrological predictions


3+ parameters for any prediction. To achieve precision in my predictions, I always use at least three systems and if all of them show a perfect match, I can be certain that the prediction is valid. It’s not enough to consider the position of one planet, e.g. Venus in the second house.


One parameter = guess, two parameters = high probability, three or more = certainty


Simple answers to your questions


I translate astrological concepts. I won’t tell you only that e.g. your Venus is in 9th house. You get a practical and thorough explanation of what that means and how to use this in a simple, practical, and the most beneficial way. The stars and planets provide the info and I provide a simple and useful translation of that info for your purposes.


Astrology senses - Moon in Cancer


Natural affinity for astrology – my natal Moon is in Cancer in the 3rd house, which is an extremely favorable sign of great sensitivity for astrology and predictions. This and other aspects involving Mercury, Venus, Sun, and Uranus enable me to deeply and precisely comprehend the language of the stars.
