The Horoscopic Astrology Blog

Home » About


Chris BrennanMy name is Chris Brennan, and I’m a practicing astrologer from Denver, Colorado. I was educated at Kepler College, formerly Kepler College of Astrological Arts and Sciences, and my background is primarily in the history and transmission of astrology. I am the former President of the Association for Young Astrologers, as well as the former Research Director of the National Council for Geocosmic Research. There is more biographical information about me available on my website

Occasionally I have guest writers who write articles for the blog, and each of these guest posts has a link back to the author’s website where you can find out more information about them.

My Approach to Astrology

My background is in modern western astrology, although at this point I also specialize in Hellenistic astrology, which is the original form of horoscopic astrology.

All charts that appear on this blog are delineated using whole sign houses, the tropical zodiac, traditional rulerships, the Dorothean triplicity lords, and occasionally the Egyptian terms.

What Is Horoscopic Astrology?

Horoscopic astrology is a very specific and advanced type of astrology that was developed in Egypt sometime around the 1st century BCE, subsequently flourishing in different parts of the world over the course of the past 2,000 years.

More specifically, horoscopic astrology is any form of astrology that utilizes the ascendant, as well as things derived from the ascendant such as “houses” and “lots.”  This designation applies to a number of different forms of astrology, including the Hellenistic, Indian, Medieval, and Modern traditions of astrology, all of which I discuss here on this blog.

For more information please see my article on horoscopic astrology.

What is the Purpose of the Blog?

The general goal of this blog is to post news and information for people who are either interested in astrology, or are just learning about the subject. So, essentially the target audience is astrologers, astrological enthusiasts, and students of astrology.

My articles are broken up into different categories, with some focusing on practical techniques and concepts, and others focusing on astrology related news, book reviews, events happening in the astrological community, and articles on the history and philosophy of astrology. My interests are rather eclectic, and I think that this is displayed pretty well in my blog.

My hope is to create a useful resource that different types of astrologers can return to often for news, information and opinions about various subjects.

Subscribing to the Blog

I try to post new articles frequently, although sometimes there are periods when I’m focused on other projects and my posting becomes more erratic.  Usually the best way to follow the blog and find out when there are new articles is to subscribe.  There are two options for subscribing:

Subscribe by Email: Using this method all you have to do is enter your email address, and then whenever a new article is published on the blog it will be delivered directly to your inbox.  New articles are always sent out automatically in the morning in my timezone here in Denver.

Subscribe by via RSS: Using this method you can subscribe to the blog’s RSS feed, so you see any new articles show up automatically in your RSS reader as soon as they are published.

Alternatively, you can also follow the Horoscopic Astrology Blog on Facebook, or follow my account on Twitter where I often post new article announcements as well as other links to interesting astrology sites and news.

I also offer private astrological consultations and classes through my astrological consulting website.  If you are interested in setting up an appointment for an astrological consultation then please see the astrological services section of my website.  Here are some of the services that I offer:
