Manfred Magg certified Astrologer DAV - About me


The hidden messages of the perceptible have always fascinated me. Since as a Waldorf teacher I had to teach a lot of left-handed people and no one really knew anything about it, I began to research the hands in more detail. When I couldn't get any further with that, I looked for experienced palm readers. At the end of the 1980s there were only a few of them, but I found my first, brilliant teachers in Rita Issberner-Haldane and Gertrud Hürlimann.

Later I combined palmistry with astrology and I still believe that this is the best way to understand the characteristics of the hand. Astrology also provides a deep understanding of the different phases of life in order to better cope with crises and upheavals. After training and testing with the German Astrologers Association, I opened a consulting practice in Aichwald near Stuttgart in 1995.

In addition to psychological and classical astrology, the foundations of my work are the writings of Jean-Baptiste Morin and the Munich rhythm theory. Of all the methods I know, the latter agree best with the results of hand interpretation. I am just as familiar with traditional palm reading as with the more recent chirology and hand analysis. I'm breaking new ground in connecting it with astrology.

The final authority for my work with palmistry and astrology is what is confirmed and proven in my practice. - I do not give courses or individual lessons.
