Cynthia Thinnes - Professional Astrologer and Website Editor
Cynthia has studied astrology her whole life. Her first astrology teacher was her mother, and she learned her zodiac along with her alphabet. She began casting horoscopes by hand when she was 12, and she has been giving astrological readings for over 25 years.
Cynthia holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education from Illinois State University and a Law Degree from DePaul University College of Law. She was a family lawyer for 10 years until she retired to concentrate on developing a full-time astrological practice, which has been a life-long dream.
Cynthia is a member of the National Council of Geocosmic Research and holds a Level II Certification from this organization. She has also studied Traditional/Classical Western Astrology extensively. Cynthia continues to attend seminars and take courses to keep up with new developments and discoveries in astrology. She just completed an intensive course on the Hellenistic technique of Zodiacal Releasing taught by Chris Brennan.
In addition to astrology, Cynthia has a strong interest in philosophy, history, and metaphysics. She speaks Japanese, has a basic knowledge of Swedish, and is currently studying Latin and Classical Greek.
Cynthia is working towards developing a new branch of astrology, called Essentialist Astrology. Essentialist Astrology is an outgrowth of Traditional/Classical Western Astrology. Essentialist Astrology is based in Essentialist Philosophy and seeks to reclaim and reintegrate the Divine Feminine into the Tradition.
Cynthia offers astrological consultations over Skype, as well as personalized written Natal Readings, Compatibility Readings, and One-Year Forecasts. You can find information about the services she offers here:
