Who is Ciro Discepolo?
An astrologer, journalist and writer, he was born in Naples in 1948 (on the 17th of July, at 5:40 am)
He worked for twenty years at the most popular daily of Naples, Il Mattino, writing articles on science, medicine, informatics, literature and astrology. He always refused to write the so-called 'horoscopes of the solar signs for that newspaper and for any other newspaper or magazine.
He worked (at 20 years old) for five years at the CNR (National Research Council) as Researcher Helper and, for two years, as Electronic Measures Laboratory‘s head in the Istituto Motori of Naples, CNR.
He has been dealing with astrology since 1970. He wrote about 60 books, most of them best-sellers in Italy as well as abroad (France, the United States of America, Spanish, Germany, Hungary, Slovenia and Russia). In 1990 he founded the quarterly Ricerca '90, which he's been directing since then.
He's been doing statistical researches from the very beginning of his interest in astrology.
At the beginning of the '90s, he obtained very brilliant results with researches on astral heredity on a sample of over 75,000 subjects.
He's been holding seminars, courses and lectures in different universities and cultural centres in Italy and abroad.
He particularly deals with Predictive Astrology and Aimed Solar Returns. According to many colleagues he may be considered the greatest living expert of this sector. In fact not only he wrote a dozen of texts on this specific segment of the art of Urania - he can also rely on an experience of more than 20,000 aimed birthdays (covering the years 1970 to 2007) that he suggested, whose outcomes he collected at an interval of one year.
He developed extremely advanced software packages for the study of Predictive Astrology, also projecting an innovative algorithm which is particularly useful for the dating of events within one year for individuals or groups of people.
He is deeply interested in informatics. Astrologically speaking, he followed the school of André Barbault.
He founded the school of the Active Astrology.
The Active Astrology
The Active Astrology is a school of Astrology founded by Ciro Discepolo at the beginning of the 90's, based on researches that the author carried out beginning from 1970.
It relies on two main subjects: the Aimed Solar Returns and the Exorcism of the symbols.
The main notion on which the Active Astrology relies is represented by the fact that the beneficiary of this school undertake to try to mitigate the so-called "negative influences' that supposedly arrives from 'dissonant' positions of the celestials in our solar system in the day and the time of the solar return on its own position of birth (of the native's sky), and at the same time, to enhance the positive implications that may refer to the native in the same way.
The Aimed Solar Return consists in changing one's place on the day of one's birthday, thus relocating the solar return according to consolidated rules, and spending one day only (few minutes) in a place accurately chosen; which place may, year by year, be distant a few miles from home, or in a different continent.
The exorcism of symbol, on the contrary, relates to the possibility of activating a symbol and therefore discharging it, according to the school of Carl Gustav Jung.
