Do you think it is possible to obtain more sucess in a business when depending only on Astrology?

Feb 14, 12:24AM EST0

No, not if you're depending only on astrology. Entrepreneurs should leverage multiples tools, methods and strategies and test what best resonates with you.

There are many methods used by entrepreneurs.  There are many things that work together with and compliment astrology. For example, businesses use Feng Shui to increase their luck and reduce negativity. They combine Feng Shui with astrology, to encourage luck at certain times of the month based on planetary transits. Some people use color psychology to get clients and customers to engage with their business or make purchases. Alot of commercials, informercials, seminar leaders use Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

Why do you think it's important to connect with your astrological side?

Feb 13, 2:26PM EST0

It's important to connect with the principles of astrology because it's one more tool to help you excel at starting and growing a business. It's ancient science that counters some of the chaos we find in modern times, such as market fluctuations, trends that come and go, price fluctuations for housing, unemployment ups and downs and more. It's an objective look at the how/when/why you should become an entrepreneur and create a better world for yourself and for others.

How come increasing creativity is connected to Astrology?

Feb 13, 2:07PM EST0

According to astrology, there are houses and zodiac signs that govern creativity. The more you know and understand your personal and business charts, the more you can understand your creative path. And you can get better at walking that path, and becoming more creative. For example, your sun sign will give you clues as to whether you naturally have what it takes to leverage your creativity as a screenwriter or as an artificial intelligence innovator. Your 5th house will give you clues as to the creative projects you should pursue and there are other clues in your chart that will tell you how to get better at them over time. There are planets, zodiac signs and houses to pay attention to. Here's an article that might help:

How many people were needed to put together a project like AstroBoss?

Feb 12, 8:26PM EST0

It took two: I created AstroBoss and write the content. Pavel Anni is the developer. He programmed it. He also develped another Alexa Skill I created: Autism Help (which helps children with autism learn functional, social and verbal skills). I chronicle our process of developing that Alexa Skill here:

People who begun using astrology in their lives have had good results? What about financial freedom?

Feb 11, 3:59PM EST0

There are zodiac signs, houses and planets that deal specifically with financial freedom. In fact, your chart lays out a personal plan for you to achieve financial freedom. For some, it will be through politics. For others, through marrying rich. For some, through charitable works (and no...it's not a contradiction). For some, it's through real estate. For others, it's through becoming the president of a country. The key is to understand what to do and when to do it...both are provided through astrology. For example, I love real estate as a way to achieve financial freedom and passive income. There's an entire "house" in your chart dedicated to buying and selling real estate, and that's the 4th house. However, should you buy and sell single family houses, apartment buildings, mobile home parks, hotels, land for intentional communities...well that depends on what sign and planets are related to that house, and what planets aspect those planets. That's the science of astrology.

Could you suggest some of the practical applications of Neuro Linguistic Programming?

Feb 10, 7:10AM EST0

In addition to most if not all of the most played on radio these days ( lol)... the business application includes:

1) Giving speeches

2) Marketing and advertising

3) Negotiating 

4) Dealing with competitors

5) TV appearances

And more.  Here's an interesting article from Oprah's website:

What are some arguments and criticisms in defense of the credibility of astrology?

Feb 10, 6:51AM EST0

I thought in answering this question it would be helpful to point to articles for readers to decide. I'm a big fan of doing the research, as well as using your own intuition to make a decision. Here are some articles that might help:

How did come up with the idea of Astro Boss?

Feb 10, 6:34AM EST0

I enjoy listening to astrology podcasts and videos, but I found the emphasis to be on love, friendship or family life (all of which are important of course!). As an entrepreneur, I wanted advice and tips on how to grow my creative projects, or how to land clients. I needed to understand how to approach sales and marketing for the week, or even for the day. That's how I came up with the three categories for AstroBoss: people, sales & marketing and working on my business. I address those categories with creators and entrepreneurs in mind. For example, Friday is ruled by Venus, which rules money and design (among other things).  Yesterday, would have been a good day to send request for payments from clients, or to design a game/blog/building and more.  Today is Saturday, ruled by Saturn, which wants you to give to the poor in those in need. It would be a great day to run for a cause, give money to those in need, work on a construction project,  and more.

Feb 10, 2:04PM EST0

Do you plan on taking this creation to other devices?

Feb 9, 7:31AM EST0

Yes absolutely. I'm fascinated with the intersection of technology and philosphies/alternative ideas that help individuals and families lead better lives. I'd love your suggestions on devices you'd love to get business tasks delievered to from AstroBoss. I know Alexa and Echo Devices take some getting used to.  Thanks.

Feb 10, 1:52PM EST0

Are they any side-projects besides AstroBoss you’re currently working on?

Feb 9, 5:52AM EST0

I'm the Creator of two Alexa Skills: Autism Help and AstroBoss. a virtual reality producer/writer and audio drama producer/writer, in addition to managing the creative careers of my children :).  

Feb 9, 6:46AM EST0

You said this is the best kept secret in business: Have you found any other recurrent approaches like this that are equally helpful?

Feb 9, 5:31AM EST0

There are many methods used by entrepreneurs.  There are many things that work together with and compliment astrology. For example, businesses use Feng Shui to increase their luck and reduce negativity. They combine Feng Shui with astrology, to encourage luck at certain times of the month based on planetary transits. Some people use color psychology to get clients and customers to engage with their business or make purchases. Alot of commercials, informercials, seminar leaders use Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

As an entrepreneur, you can test and use whatever you woud like.

Feb 9, 5:49AM EST0

Did you ever consider dedicating to something else besides Astrology?

Feb 9, 3:32AM EST0

I'm the Creator of two Alexa Skills: Autism Help and AstroBoss. a virtual reality producer/writer and audio drama producer/writer, in addition to managing the creative careers of my children :).  I created AstroBoss to help entrepreneurs manage and grow their business with astrology.

Have you applied your methods to your personal life and business? What results have you obtained?

Feb 9, 2:55AM EST0

I think it would be helpful to look at how famous people in history used astrology so that we objectively measure the results they obtained. Here are some as well links to articles with more information:

"The Philosopher Plato said : “Perhaps there is a pattern set up in the heavens for one who desires to see it, and having seen it, to find one in himself.” Physicist Albert Einstein said : “Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it.”  Physicist Sir Isaac Newton said in defence of astrology, to sceptic Edmund Halley:“I have studied the matter. You sir, have not”.  The poet Ralph Waldo Emerson said : “Astrology is astronomy brought down to earth and applied toward the affairs of man.”  Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine said : “A physician without the knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician."” Read more at http://www.beliefnet.com/columnists/astrologicalmusings/2010/04/ronald-reagan-and-other-famous.html#IML7CHt3br1moPLc.99

"Did you know Walt Disney timed his movie premiers according to the stars and 20th Century Fox Studios released Star Wars on a day recommended by the company’s astrologer? Ronald Reagan, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson (the list goes on …) all timed their decisions according to favorable astrological conditions."

What is the key demographic you focus on when selling AstroBoss?

Feb 8, 8:12PM EST0

Thank you for asking Andia. The key demographic for AstroBoss is anyone who wants to start or expand a business this year, with the goal of it lasting  for many years to come. It's also for creators and freelancers who want to make more money this year and/or become more imaginative and innovative to solve the problems they were born to solve.

In which way planetary transits work? Do they have anything to do with energetic forces?

Feb 8, 5:16PM EST0

Here's a good explanation of planetary transits and how they work Jessie. (The full article follows the excerpt.):

"A moving planet can stay in aspect anywhere from a few hours up to a few years. The moon, because she moves so fast, makes aspects only for a short hour or two. And then she’s gone. Neptune and Pluto, because they move so slowly (relative motion), can stay in aspect for 2 or 3 years. Use an orb of 1 degree to consider transits (but use a 2 degree orb to plan ahead!) While a moving planet is in aspect to a natal planetary position, the moving planet is said to be “transiting” the natal planet."

Do you apply any other methods besides Astrology to your own business?

Feb 8, 4:30PM EST0

There are many methods used by entrepreneurs.  There are many things that work together with and compliment astrology. For example, businesses use Feng Shui to increase their luck and reduce negativity. They combine Feng Shui with astrology, to encourage luck at certain times of the month based on planetary transits. Some people use color psychology to get clients and customers to engage with their business or make purchases. Alot of commercials, informercials, seminar leaders use Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

Feb 8, 8:57PM EST0

Since when have you been in the Astrology business?

Feb 8, 6:07AM EST0

Thanks for your question. I want to make sure I understand it. AstroBoss is a productivity, Alexa Skill. It helps entrepreneurs generate a to-do list using astrology. I created that Alexa Skill last year. 

Feb 8, 8:55PM EST1

Can you simply describe the meaning of ‘leveraging astrology’?

Feb 7, 7:04PM EST0

Sure Edith. I love this definition of leverage: "use (something) to maximum advantage." So, entrepreneurs and creators should use the knowledge and wisdom of astrology to build the best businesses we can, or to create the best work/outcomes/societal impact we can. There was a time when this knowledge was hidden from many, or only the select had the knowledge. Now, we have more access to astrology, more than ever before. So...why not use it?

Feb 8, 8:44PM EST0

Do you have a degree in Astrology studies?

Feb 7, 5:01PM EST0

I'm not aware of degrees in Astrology studies. That's the beauty of astrology. It's for the people. The poor and the rich, the "educated" and the "uneducated" can learn and leverage astrology. I don't believe you can learn all there is to know about astrology in one lifetime either. It's a lifelong journey, and some of it will come from your own intuition.  There are lots of courses out there for entrepreneurs and creators to learn astrology.  AstroBoss offers weekly webinars to help. 

Feb 8, 8:36PM EST0

Why trusting in Astrology and not in other theories?

Feb 7, 2:31PM EST0

Oh there are other theories as well used by entrepreneurs.  There are many things that work together with and compliment astrology. For example, businesses use Feng Shui to increase their luck and reduce negativity. They combine Feng Shui with astrology, to encourage luck at certain times of the month based on planetary transits. Some people use color psychology to get clients and customers to engage with their business or make purchases. Alot of commercials, informercials, seminar leaders use Neuro-Linguistic Programming. You can read more about that here: Neuro-Linguistic Programming https://www.psychologytoday.com/therapy-types/neuro-linguistic-programming-therapy

As an entrepreneur, you can test and use whatever you woud like.

Feb 8, 8:30PM EST0

Does your family supports what you do? Has it always been like that?

Feb 7, 12:08PM EST0

They have no choice... we're in business together lol! Seriously, there's nothing like building a family business. And, I encourage everyone to do it using astrology. Use it to make decisions. Use planetary transits to time meetings and major decisions. Know when to lay off or hold on tight based on what's happening with planetary transits and eclipses. It's great to have that "third party," in this case the Cosmos, help "the group" make decisions, time events and formulate strategies. 

Feb 8, 8:20PM EST0

Do you have any hobbies related to your career?

Feb 7, 4:54AM EST0

Yes Valeriia :).  I love playing and engaging with new technologies, including Alexa, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. I'm a Creator, Producer and Writer in these spaces, and it's just plain fun. I encourage everyone to balance work they must do, with work they love to do until eventually the latter wins. By the way...the 5th house in your astrology chart rules hobbies. So if you need ideas, go and see what's in there :)!

Feb 8, 8:17PM EST0

Are there any successful entrepreneurs that use this method?

Feb 7, 4:49AM EST0

Yes Nickie.  Here's a quote regarding a famous and successful business man in history: JP Morgan - (following the quote I've shared links to articles that are luke-warm about using astrology for business in order to provide balance).

"I do know about the late J.P. Morgan’s belief in astrology, because – well, because I taught it to him.  I read his horoscope many times, and furnished him during the last years of his life a regular service, explaining the changing position of the planets and their probable effect on politics, business, and the stock market.No further proof of his interest in the science is required beyond the fact that he renewed this service from year to year."

Feb 8, 8:13PM EST0

How did you get to Astrology as the best kept secret in bussines?

Feb 7, 3:37AM EST0

After lots of interviews and independent research, that was the conclusion I reached. It's definitely my opinion. I don't have a study to prove it. However, it's actually a secret hidden in plain sight. There are code words like "get in the flow" or "everything aligned" or "use your intuition" or "it was luck I guess." 

Test it for yourself.  For example, just look at the dates that major movies are being released this year.  A movie studio is a business right? What "aligned" astrologically on the same date of the movie release? Repeat the test for product launch dates, or company announcements. What was going on with the planets that day? You can even look at future dates. Here's a website where you check past and future dates (of where the planets where):

Feb 8, 7:57PM EST0

Is there any way AstroBoss can help communities as in charity processes?

Feb 7, 3:13AM EST0

Absolutely. For example, all of the "inner planets" Jupiter, Venus, Mars, Saturn, the Sun and Moon inspire giving to, sponsoring, asking others for money, caring for, raising money and help for those in need, the poor and speaking up for those who can't. So, use AstroBoss as a social entrepreneur. For example, if you charity if to build an intentional community for the elderly or disabled, follow the tasks spelled out for each day of the week to move your charitable project along. 

Also, here is an article on astrology and charitable giving:

Feb 8, 7:46PM EST0

What has been the most challenging part of your career?

Feb 6, 10:46PM EST0

The most challenging part of my career has been not having one :)! It's difficult to pin me down as an entrepreneur, and as a result, some people are not quite sure what to do with me lol! However, that's also been my winning strategy. I encourage you and everyone reading this to remain adaptable and flexible. We're in times that require that in order to excel at entrepreneurship. For example, I never knew what an Alexa Skill was before I created AstroBoss. A friend of mine introduced me to Alexa, before I owned my own Echo Device. If I'd labeled myself as a VR producer (which I am) I would have ignored that opportunity and I never would have created AstroBoss. I'm know learning about voice interface technology, artificial intelligence and so much more because I remain adaptable and flexible.

Feb 8, 7:39PM EST0

Have you ever faced individuals that are against your proposal just because of their own beliefs on Astrology?

Feb 6, 6:54PM EST0

I haven't yet personally, but it's common among those who are open about their beliefs in astrology. Notice, I said "open." Many entrepreneurs and creators are in the closet about all of this. Some fear the competition, others the ridicule. However, we're in changing times. I believe you'll see more entrepreneurs share the truth about what took them to the "top" and a part of that journey was using astrology.  Like anything else, sometimes those who are most against it, are the ones using it the most. 

Feb 8, 7:34PM EST0

Do you expect to create a major impact in the world with your project?

Feb 6, 3:12PM EST0

Absolutely Andre.  We need more creators and entrepreneurs to solve problems in the world. Astrology will help the innovators of today and tomorrow, achieve success and strengthen communities. In fact, they may be inspired to become founders of new communities. All of this takes capital (in this current system) and that's generated from the blood, sweat and tears of entrepreneurs...with a little help from astrology of course :)!
