Some blogs are written to entertain while others educate; some blogs reveal, some validate, and still some bring a new awareness. We’d like to think this blog is a combination of all those things. It tells of a fascinating science called Midpoint Astrology — come join us on this exciting adventure!
Midpoint Astrology (or Cosmobiology) has its roots in the 19th century and was originally developed by Alfred Witte and later refined by Dr. Reinhold Ebertin. This science helps explain love interests, sudden life-changing events, and aspirational goals through planetary positions known as aspects.
These aspects differ from traditional astrology, which has conjunctions for when a planet passes over another, trines if they are 120 degrees apart, or squares when they separated by 90 degrees — all relating to the 360 degree zodiac. However, Midpoint Astrology (Cosmobiology) uses a 90 degree wheel and places planets in one of three segments of the wheel.
There are the Cardinal signs — active and outgoing — of Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn. Then follow the Fixed signs — stable to the point of being stubborn — of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. And last, the Mutable or adaptable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces close out the wheel.

Please note that from this arrangement, only ‘hard’ aspects are calculated, in multiples of 45 deg. There are conjunctions, semi-squares, squares, sesqui-squares, and oppositions. And these may be calculated from the midpoint or point that is exactly between two planets. There are no trines in Midpoint Astrology.
Luckily with today’s computers, no math is necessary and you’ll see from the case studies how simple it is to develop a chart from a birth date and an event date. Each week (or two if we get behind), planetary secrets will be revealed in some very public figures.
