Q: How is the heliohoroscope chart built?

A: It is built by superimposing two charts of the planets as they actually appear in the Solar system on a given day. The two charts are aligned together in reference to Saturn’s position, which is always fixed at the 12 o’clock position in both charts.


Q: What is the heliohoroscope used for?

A: To prove that the planets have an influence on human lives.


Q: What are the major differences between the heliohoroscope and classical Western astrology?

A: The primary objective of the classical Western horoscope is to predict someone’s personality traits and give a description of their inner inclinations; the heliohoroscope, on the other hand, deals exclusively with events and relationships. The aspects in a heliohoroscope point to some significant events or relationships in the life of a person.


Q: What are the benefits of heliocentrism over geocentrism?

A: The heliocentric model provides an authentic depiction of our solar system, whereas the geocentric model has been scientifically refuted. More specifically, the geocentric model reduces all the planets’ orbits to a single circle around the Earth, but in the heliohoroscope, the orbits are displayed in their actual positions (save for that of Jupiter, whose faraway orbit is reduced to fit into the chart.)


Q: Why are there no zodiac signs or houses?

A: Zodiac signs and the concept of houses are only applicable to the geocentric model. The signs are aligned according to the equinoxes of Earth and the houses correspond to Earth’s rotation on its own axis.


Q: Which aspects in classical astrology remain and which don’t?

A: In the heliohoroscope there are fewer aspects and they occur much less frequently. However, a distinct similarity can be seen between classical astrology’s “conjunctions” and the heliohoroscope’s “reunions,” but other than that, the two models don’t share aspects.


Q: What type of events and relationships do these aspects correspond to?

A: So far, I can discern the following areas of life where the influence seems the strongest: in relationships, it is spouses, relatives, and business partnerships; in life events, it is marriages, career promotions, elections, etc. Generally, an aspect is most likely to be found in correspondence with some singular, remarkable event. In careers of sportspeople it is their first or last victory, or a win that sets a new record.


Q: What do the planets symbolise?

A: The heliohoroscope uses only the Sun and six of the planets around it. The planets can be divided into pairs, based on their signification: Earth and Venus symbolise the social element of one’s life, Mercury and Mars the causal element, and Saturn and Jupiter the metaphysical element.

Specifically, the meaning of the planets is as follows: Earth represents I in the life of others; Venus, others in my life; Mercury, mind, spirit, and thought; Mars, body, matter, and action; Saturn, destiny; and lastly, Jupiter represents free will.

It is to be noted that this is one theory offered by me as a result of my observations thus far, but it can be corrected or reinterpreted after processing further evidence.


Q: Can the heliohoroscope system be used by just about anyone and, if so, how/where?

A: Yes, anyone can use it. The goal of this project is to find statistical proof of the planetary influence on human lives. On the heliohoroscope’s website, you can build charts of events and/or relationships in other people’s lives, or use the available biographical data at hand to build charts of dates in your own life.


Q: Is retrograde included?

A: No. The concept of the retrograde movement of the planets corresponds exclusively to the geocentric model. In reality, a planet can never change the course of its movement.


Q: Do different kinds of alignments have different meanings?

A: It’s a possibility, but further research is needed to confirm it. At the moment, the aspects show only the importance of an event or a relationship, not its meaning.


Q: What makes the heliohoroscope credible?

A: You can decide for yourself whether it is credible or not, after studying all the evidence that is presented on this website. Collaboration in statistical research of the heliohoroscope is welcome.


Q: How did you come up with the idea of the heliohoroscope?

A: Through dreams and insight. I’ll tell the story later.
