May we first ask you what you think is 'a belief'?
In our opinion it's everything you can't (sense) smell, see, touch, feel,........ everything that is not (yet) part of your life.
It's all things that you have not encountered, not lived to see, not experienced, everything that did not become part of your own reality.
It's a dimension you are not aware of and that has not reached your consciousness (yet).
It's kind of a frequency you don't know of, that has not entered your personal life.
That's why we also say: 'in the world of an elephant, goldfish do not exist either.'
Suppose that I'm a mechanic, and you are a lay(wo)man who doesn't know anything about how engines work.
If I would just 'tell' you how an engine works, would you 'believe' me?
Perhaps, because You may consider me an expert in this field, but it will still be a belief on your part -- till you have gone through mechanics yourself.
With astrology it's the same.
If you don't know what it is, if you have never seen how it works, if you have never experienced it, if you don't know....... you can't but 'believe' in it (or not believe in it).
Anyway, it will always remain a belief.
If you know what astrology does, if you know what to expect from it, - not because you reason about it - but if you have thoroughly researched and practiced it, if you know what it is and what it is not, if it is part of your consiousness and personal reality, it will get another dimension.
It will no longer be 'a belief'.
Astrology is only a belief to the disbelievers.
And so, it is with quite a lot of other topics, take Homeopathy, Reiki, Accupuncture, electromagnetism,...
If it's not part of your reality, it will always remain a belief in YOUR life.
So, NO, we don't 'believe' in astrology, we just know what it is and how it works...
With all the success stories and failures that go with it!
And, by the way, if you are planning to (scientifically) test astrology, think about what you're going to test: astrology or the 'astrologer(s)'...
We do indeed often mention that we are doing astrological research.
In fact we are analyzing as much horoscopes as possible, looking for some common astrological signatures, hoping to bring astrology on a more 'scientific' level.
If we can find some planetary pictures and alignments that can only be found in the research group and not in a control group, we may have found some valuable information to 'predict' future events or characteristics.
Let's give an example.
We have been doing some research re the solar returns (i.e. a horoscope calculated for the time that the transiting Sun returns to the position of the natal Sun) and the year of one's first marriage and first childbirth.
If we can find some planetary pictures that can only be found in the solar returns of the year of one's first marriage, we can analyze all solar returns of one's life and find the solar return in which we find the pictures to get the year of the first marriage.
As far as our research for a first marriage stands, we gathered the following preliminary results (analyzing just 200 solar returns of first marriages):
The most remarkable combinations are as follows:
To analyze as much horoscopes as possible, we need a huge amount of reliable birth data, very detailed biographies and personal traits or characteristics and -- last but not least -- good software programs.
In the past we used the most wonderful (and powerful) program WINARP from AIR Software.
Unfortunately they do not support that software anymore and replaced it by their new NeuroNet Astro Investigator software.
While the Astro Investigator can analyze more characteristics together and give them a weighing, WINARP could research much, much more astrological features (midpoints, harmonics, degree areas,...) separately.
It's a pity these most important features are (still) missing in the Astro Investigator.
Together with the Astro Investigator we use the AstroDatabank, the most extensive astrological Database in the World with +32,000 birth data and biographies.
When conducting our research we use the following astrological conditions:
When we analyze a batch of horoscopes, we let the statistical software analyze every SINGLE astrological condition (thousands and thousands!) that is then compared with a control group (and a Chi square test).
We then combine the most prominent astrological conditions with each other to find a signature in the analyzed group that we cannot find in the control group.
Let's start with an example to make it more comprehensible to understand how we conduct our astrological research.
Say, we want to research the astrological condition(s) that make a childless woman (for example). How do we proceed and conduct our astrological research?
We call every single chain, containing different significant astrological conditions, a signature.
We repeat because it's important: there are hundreds, even thousands of signatures (chains of astrological conditions) pointing to the same life event, trait or characteristic.
It's erroneous to say or think that one single configuration relates with one single event or trait... Nature is a network and not a linear one-on-one thing.
You can't judge the cover of a puzzle by analyzing just and only one piece!
And here, most astrological research studies fail hard!
In our research, we want to find as many of these signatures pointing to the same life event, traits or characteristics as possible.
An example wil make it more clear:
Let's say we have found 100 single significant astrological conditions and configurations (with a high Chi square) that are found in 200 charts of childless women.
Then we start combining astrological condition 1 with condition 2 and look at the "control group" of 200 charts (or more) of women who conceived children.
Can we find a single chart with this combination in the charts of women with children or not.
That's the question:
Hopefully, you now understand how complex and immensely time-consuming astrological research really is, the more so because there's almost nobody in the whole world who is doing astrological research this way.
Also, to our knowledge, there is still not a single astrological software program available in the whole world that can accomplish this huge task for us!!
We have to rely on different software programs to help us accomplish this task, and hopefully they are bug free.
And then, we are left alone with a lot of deduction and insight to find the right combinations to build our signatures...
Also, every time we add new reliable birth information to our database(s), we have to start from scratch ;-(((
What a hassle! But in the end it really pays, because the results are reliable and VERY significant. Astrology rocks!
Indeed, we deliver astrological profiles and reports.
We refer to our Horoscope Profiles page for an overview of some reports and profiles we offer.
We also deliver a Free love matching analysis for members of the most well-known online Dating Services, as mentioned on our dating page.
Note that we do not deliver computerized reports, though, and that all the reports that we deliver are the work of a human astrologer.
The only exception in which we deliver computerized or automated charts is when we want to provide you with listings, tables, calculations and charts that need no text or that complete a text.
An example are the Astrodamus reports.
In fact you can order any report or forecast from us.
One exception: we do NO medical astrology, so we will not answer any questions or problems that relate to medical or health issues.
All our prices are in Euro but you can also pay the equivalent amount in USD, GBP or CAD.
Payments go through PayPal because it's really the most convenient way to do so.
Contact us for any report (and price) that you cannot find on our web site through our Contact/Feedback page.
The various colors on the Overview do have a specific meaning.
The light green color points to the peak fertile periods (indicated by two ** in the last column of the table).
The blue color indicates the periods when the gender of the child still is uncertain (marked by the question marks ?? in tha last column).
Different colors are used to indicate the times for conceiving a boy (black) or a girl.
The given times are in the 24 hour format. This means that if you read a time of 13-23 on the listing, this is from 1 pm to 11 pm.
The days and times marked ** point to your PEAK fertile times.
They only indicate the moment of your PEAK FERTILITY.
The dates listed on the Overview -- on and in itself -- have nothing to do with conceiving a HEALTHY (or an unhealthy) child.
In fact, all the dates and times on the Listing point to FERTILE PERIODS, but the ones marked ** are the most important if you have difficulties in conceiving a child, because these are the periods of maximum fertility.
This DOES NOT mean that conception at these times causes ill children or miscarriages.
From the Overview alone we CANNOT tell you if you will conceive a healthy or an unhealthy child.
If you want to know the periods to only conceive an absolutely HEALTHY child we should analyze all the times and periods listed on the Overview as separate horoscopes and disregard the times when there are difficult aspects to the Moon or other personal points.
Moreover, because there is not much research done in this field it is not sure that all 'difficult' aspects are known!
Even then, you're not 100% sure to conceive an absolutely healthy child, but it can give an indication!
Increasingly, ISPs (ex., earthlink.net, comcast.net) and mail services (ex., Hotmail) are using filtering systems to try and keep spam out of customers' inboxes.
Sometimes, though, they accidentally filter the e-mail that you do want to receive.
Please do not blame your ISP or mail service.
The volume of spam is enormous and the algorithms to figure out what is spam (and what is not) are complicated.
So mistakes do happen. We all have to deal, unfortunately, with the fallout of what spammers do to the Internet.
Naturally, you want to keep spam out.
And you want to receive important CosmiTec communications -- e-mail, our Love Letter (Newsletter), orders and any other e-mail that you request (and we only EVER send e-mail that you request).
If you ordered something from us and at first sight you did not get any response, here's what to do:
It's a shame to bother you like this, but blame it on the spammers.
Your ISP or mail service is only trying to protect you.
The bottom line is that things have become so complicated in the ever-escalating war between spammers and ISPs/mail services, that you and we are accidentally caught in their cross-fire.

Also, I am confused as the Lunar Cycle Fertility Overview stated that the 8th June was a girl day for me.
Now on my personalized baby gender prediction calendar the 8th June is no longer mentioned but the 21st June is. Is 8th June no longer a girl day?
Could you please explain to me why these dates have changed?
The baby gender prediction calendar is totally different from the (free or paid Expanded) Lunar Cycle Fertility Overview when it comes to baby gender prediction.
The Lunar Cycle Fertility Overview is solely based on your personal Moon phase returns, marking highly fertile times. It's the same as the Jonas method.
Our own calculated baby gender prediction calendar is a blend of quite some astrological methods (the Moon phase return being just one of them).
Our own calendar only lists the days on which all methods and techniques agree about the gender without an exception.
If all methods point to the same gender for the same day, we will list this day.
If one method points to the other gender, we will NOT list this day.
This means that our own calculated baby gender prediction calendar is the most accurate (and reliable) one as far as our knowledge goes.
While the Lunar Cycle Fertility Overview is reliable (especially when it comes to finding your peak fertile days), it's not infallible regarding the baby gender predictions though.
It's primarily and foremost a fertility cycle (and fertility tool) and only secondarily a baby gender prediction method.
When in the past some women pointed out that the Lunar Cycle Fertility Overview brought a baby of the other gender as anticipated, we started investigating the Moon phase returns more in-depth regarding the baby gender.
Our research made it clear that there are other cycles at work, aside from the Moon phase returns.
Some women respond extremely well to the Moon phase returns when it comes to baby gender prediction, while other women respond very well to other gender prediction cycles.
Unfortunately, it's still difficult to know beforehand which woman responds best to which cycle/single method...
That's why we currently list only the most reliable days on the baby gender prediction calendar when all cycles we currently know of coincide and point to the same gender.
So, if your baby gender prediction calendar does not list a day you can find on the Lunar Cycle Fertility Overview it's because there is at least one other method that points to the other gender for that day, making that we don't print this day on the calendar.
Also, it may happen that the same day is marked a boy day (or girl day) on the Lunar Cycle Fertility Overview and marked a girl day (or boy day) on the baby gender prediction calendar.
If all our methods point to the opposite gender as listed on the Lunar Cycle Fertility Overview, we go for our own researched methods when it comes to baby gender prediction because we've found them to correct the Moon phase return method.
Because of the importance of solar activity in weather, earthquake and volcanic activity and the way it also seems to affect the behavior of living creatures (animals and humans), we added a simple Solar Activity status monitor on all our forecast pages in the navigation bar on the right of the pages.
The X-ray Solar status monitor downloads data periodically from the NOAA Space Environment Center FTP server.
The previous 24 hours of 5 minute Long-wavelength X-ray data from each satellite (GOES 8 and GOES 10) is analyzed, and an appropriate level of activity for the past 24 hours is assigned as follows:
The Geomagnetic Field status monitor downloads data periodically from the NOAA Space Environment Center FTP server.
The previous 24 hours of 3 hour Planetary Kp Index data is analyzed and an appropriate level of activity for the past 24 hours is assigned as follows:
Both status monitors are just a small part of a larger picture (there are the Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs), coronal holes, the Bz and other techniques that also have to be taken into account).
We will expand this topic with other status monitors as soon as we find reliable sources that give the permisson to use the data on our web site.
The first thing you have to know is the way the internet works.
People seldom read large texts carefully and diligently on computer screens.
It's too tiresome (to the eyes and to the mind).
People scan, scroll and skip things when browsing to find what interests them.
If they have not found it in a second, they just quit.
Also, people nowadays not only consult the internet from their desktop (on a large monitor screen) but more and more 'on the go' with the help of mobile phones, tablets and the like.
You can't read large text blocks comfortably on a small smartphone screen.
Aside from the way people read texts on the internet, everything now has to go (super) fast and people have no time to delve into large texts to get to the essence.
People need to get the content asap, even instantly, they want to get to the core and the essence of the message asap without searching too long for it.
That's why we try to only print the essence of the astrological configurations without bells and whistles.
Also, the way the Astrodamus Annual and Daily Analyses are written (and programmed) served as a good example on how to be as concise as possible.
Astrology is a language that uses a specific grammar and vocabulary that you can use to build sentences with.
This makes for repeatable delineations depending on the active astrological configurations.
This is a good way to more scientifically test astrological predictions as well.
Now to the way our forecasts are analyzed and written.
To forecast what's ahead the next year, you need at least the following 3 tools:
How to proceed?
The 90° Graphic Ephemeris is your primary tool on which you find all the planetary positions and midpoints for the year ahead.
The horizontal lines from 0° to 30° represent the degree areas of the Sun and/or Ascendant in Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.
The horizontal lines from 30° to 60° represent the degree areas of the Sun and/or Ascendant from 0° to 30° Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
The horizontal lines from 60° to 90° represent the degree areas of the Sun and/or Ascendant from 0° to 30° Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.
Example 1: drawing a horizontal line at 25° represents the Ascendant and/or Sun's position at 25° Aries, 25° Cancer, 25° Libra and 25° Capricorn.
Converting the Sun's position to birthdays can be done with the help of an astrological agenda, astrological calendar or ephemeris.
The Sun is at 25° Aries around April 15, the Sun is at 25° Cancer around July 17-18, the Sun is at 25° Libra around October 18 and the Sun is at 25° Capricorn around January 15.
Example 2: drawing a horizontal line at 81° represents the Ascendant and/or Sun's position at 21° Gemini, 21° Virgo, 21° Sagittraius and 21° Pisces.
Converting the Sun's position to birthdays can be done with the help of an astrological agenda, astrological calendar or ephemeris.
The Sun is at 21° Gemini around June 12, the Sun is at 21° Virgo around September 13-14, the Sun is at 21° Sagittarius around December 13 and the Sun is at 21° Pisces around March 11-12.
Whenever the horziontal line (representing the Ascendant or Sun's position) crosses a transiting planetary line (or midpoint), your Ascendant or Sun is hit by the transiting planet(s) (or planetary midpoint).
The most important and powerful crossings are the ones with the transiting midpoints!
Delineate them following the Combination of Stellar Influences (CoSI) by R. Ebertin or any other reliable midpoint reference guide.
Know that the Ascendant represents your environment and surroundings (and not the person itself).
The Sun's position represents the physical body and your creative self-expression (among others).
The 30° Graphic Ephemeris shows when planets and/or midpoints coincide at the same degree.
Such planetary overlays show the numerical degree of the Ascendant and Sun's position that will be hit by the overlays.
Combine the planetary meanings to find out what is going on.
The horoscope wheel is used to draw in the planetary positions of Jupiter till Pluto and the Moon's Node for the coming 12 months.
You can now see which (equal) house these transiting outer planets are in and which houses they rule because that's what makes it very interesting and more personal.
Note any date when an outer planet changes a sign.
Also, list the dates and degrees on which the planets station and turn retrograde.
These dates are very important, especially for the Ascendants and Sun signs which they rule because they can expect delays, frustration, withdrawal etc.
Some keywords you can use to delineate the different configurations and overlays in the horoscope wheel:
