My name is Andre Kahr. I am the creator and administrator of this website and blog. I’ve been a professional astrologer since 1983 with a connection to the stars as a student, teacher, speaker, consultant, and writer over the last 37 years.

 

From my earliest encounter with astrology in 1980, I noticed striking correlations between the activity in my natal chart and the feelings and events in my life. This motivated toward continual study of astrological patterns and cycles.

 

I’ve always sensed this knowledge is helpful toward the expression of my own potentials, but I also realized that I could help others through the powerful insight and guidance that it can provide.

 

Approximately concurrent with my earliest astrological explorations, I learned how to practice stillness meditation and soon began to understand that powerful though chart patterns and cycles can be, my relationship to the present moment in time was even more important. I deeply understood it to be the master key to my empowerment, my well being, and my happiness. The ancient teachings repeatedly pointed this out, and through my own experience of meditation I found myself in complete agreement.

 

I then needed to resolve what amounted to a kind of paradox: If star patterns reveal personal potentials and what is likely to happen in the future, where does the present moment fit in?

 

As I continued my practice in both domains, the answer slowly emerged. Star cycles do describe the kind of landscape we are in at any given moment, but our ability to make a skillful and continuous relationship to the present moment is what empowers us to best navigate these cycles.

 

As the relationship to the moments in our life deepens,  our presence of mind becomes our strength and our guiding light. If our star cycles are difficult,  we rise to the challenge and use them to grow and develop. If easier, we connect with states of natural enjoyment and we harvest the results of previous efforts.

 

Knowledge of future trends can be very useful but a deep relationship to the present moment is the only way to discover our true nature and satisfy our inmost desire. In that connection we find our harmony and wisdom. Our power and our joy. Our ultimate potential and our ever unfolding prosperity.
