In ancient times palmistry and astrology were secret sciences. If we combine them with modern spirituality and psychology, we'll get a medium, which makes deep personal insights possible. It tells us how to live in harmony with the cosmic rhythms. For that reason the combination of hand reading and occidental astrology is my special subject. 

Palmistry and astrology complete each other in an extensive way. It shows your weak and strong sides, as well as important events in your past life and future developements. This knowledge helps you to do the right thing at the right time.

Palmistry and astrology shouldn't suggest decisions to someone. They should help you to make decisions in an intelligent way.

You'll find more about astropalmistry and how to work with it in my book (in German): "Hand und Horoskop - Was Handlesen mit Astrologie verbindet". References to it and information about my articles are in... publications 

The part entitled Basics contains two articles:
I.: From palmistry to a revised chirology 
II: Dominant planets in hand and horoscope.

There are different ways to use palmistry (chirology) and astrology. I work with them as a very practical way for self-knowledge and to understand certain situations or developments that point to the future.

Palmistry (Chirology ) and astrology complete each other perfectly, as a characterology and for a better understanding of one's own biography. They help you to live consciously and to do the right thing at the right time.

Your request is in the center of my consulting. Your themes may be: Your individuality, relationship, profession, a special crisis, preview of the coming year and perspectives of the future.

I came to palmistry because of spiritual interests and questions about left-handers. More than 30 years ago I started to examine hands. I was trained in handreading by: 

Rita Issberner-Haldane (D) in Chirosophy and medical hand- and naildiagnosis,
Gertrud I. Hürlimann (CH) in Astro-Chirology,
Louise Kirsebom / Johan Hjelmborg (DK) in Astro-Chirology,
Richard Unger (USA) in handanalysis,
Vinday Aditya (Ind.) in vedic palmistry.

I was trained in astrological consulting with Ernst Ott and Eva Stangenberg (Karlsruhe), In 1995 I pass the examination of the German Astrologers Association. Then I opened a consulting bureau combining handreading and astrology.
