About me

Greetings! My name is Rok. I was born and raised in central Slovenia and my quest into the mystery of life began early in my childhood. During my life I experienced many injuries to the body and other health problems which made me hungry for the understanding of why there is suffering and how this manifested world operates. When the 8th house of my horoscope became highlighted I got into mysticism, explored mythologies of different cultures and my quest eventually led me to India where I traveled far and wide, from the south all the way to the Himalayas, gathering precious experiences and knowledge. Soon I got actively involved with a particular branch of Vedic spirituality which led me to the study of Bhagavad-Gita, Sri Isopanishad and Bhagavata Purana along with other works of Indian spiritual literature. Since philosophy and astrology are deeply connected I was soon intrigued by it. Being readily available, I began studying Tropical Western astrology.  Being more of a “do-it-yourself” person, I studied on my own, with the help of various books, read horoscopes for my friends, examined various charts and was generally quite happy with the development of my practice, but I was still intrigued by the Indian astrological techniques and concepts, since my philosophical background was mostly Vedantic, but I had difficulty switching over due to the difference in the Zodiac being used. My practice was built on the Tropical Zodiac and I was ready to switch to Indian Vedic astrology only if I would find convincing arguments in favor of the Sidereal Zodiac. One day a friend mentioned that there is an astrologer named Ernst Wilhelm who is practicing Vedic astrology with tropical signs. That made me very curious and when I found more about Ernst I was delighted to see that Indian astrology is not necessarily bound to the Sidereal Zodiac. This encouraged me to dive into it and I quickly started to learn from Ernst. After some exploration and practical application of different Indian astrological techniques my interest in ancient astrology eventually brought me back to the West and I began studying what is today known as Hellenistic astrology. I was amazed by its relatively orderly, rational and systematic approach, and also by its incredible similarity to Indian astrology. Although today this forms the basis of my work I also incorporate specific Indian techniques. I find that the two systems complement each other beautifully and if there is something I enjoy very much it is astrological synthesis, and the result of this is my book At The Turning Of Years – A Book On Solar Forecasting and most of my blog posts found on this site. Since I strongly believe in balance I also enjoy art, specifically music which compliments my rational endeavors in astrology beautifully. I’m a passionate world flutist, synthesist and music producer. I’ve also been practicing Rei-ki for more than twenty years for which I am extremely grateful as it has been a valuable gift and a great aid on my path.  I enjoy nature, especially mountains, which are my biggest inspiration and I love to sit in silence and simply observe Life.

I wish you all the best on your path!

A form of Life,
