( The content of these pages are written in Rick's own words when he had his website back in the late 90's until a few months before his passing. To see his memorial page, please click here - Rick Houck.)
The purpose of this site is as a limited technical and philosophical resource for people who are not really familiar with this topic, but who have been referred here by my existing client base or by other astrologers. For viewers who are not here by referral but who may have stumbled onto this site, please be advised that this is the real analytical thing and is not to be confused with Sun Sign "astrology" seen on the comic pages of the world's newspapers, nor with the purple-caped Madame Fifi's on various "psychic hotlines," nor with the cacophony of many astrology enthusiasts, nor even with standard Western astrology.
Until fairly recently, the world's conventional media has been able to sustain a near total blackout on true and useful information about legitimate astrology. This has forced potential consumers of astrological services into a pure word-of-mouth referral system, or else into a maze of often peculiar and amateur choices. The Web now permits this formerly limited information distribution system to be overcome and greatly broadened. Now you can penetrate beyond the ignorance and nonsense of the mainstream media to find out what the rare real thing is all about, and what unique value it can, and cannot, provide for you.
WITHIN THESE PAGES, I HOPE TO INTRODUCE TO YOU:
… My understanding of what "real astrology" is.
… Some "best and unique uses" for real astrology (and what are misdirected uses and/or expectations).
… What personal qualifications characterize a true consulting-level astrologer.
… My political forecasts. ( He also speaks of his terminal illness here and the subsequent closing down of his website)
… Some books we offer.
