The Basics of Astrology
Astrotheme: About Us
Astrotheme was created in 2002 on the initiative of Philippe Lepoivre de Vesle* with a view to offering to astrology enthusiasts the best reports and transits forecasts, and an Internet tool as powerful and friendly as a quality professional software for their computer.
In a few years, Astrotheme became one of the main actors in the world of Francophone astrology websites. For over 15 years, it has ranked first among French astrology websites in terms of traffic. It also provides astrological services to hundreds of websites in various countries.
We regularly add astrological applications and specific dossiers and astrological reports such as for instance horary astrology, career and vocation study, as well as the latest 2017 version of astrological forecast. They have been carefully crafted in order to devise the best of what can be obtained at present with the transit method.
Quality and seriousness are our guiding principles. For that reason, the reports we sell have been elaborated in such a way as to avoid two pitfalls commonly found in astrological texts: boredom, instilled by texts which are too abstract and pedantic - of which not much is remembered - and on the contrary, frustration aroused by interpretations which are too down-to-earth and simplistic.
Furthermore, all our texts have been written with the constant concern to suggest some advice and some solution for each "negative" interpretation, whether in our portraits, our compatibility reports, or our astrological forecasts. Astrotheme is neither a fatalistic nor a polemical website. The purpose of our texts is to help. This is what astrology is all about, even though some topics are controversial, such as the meanings of symbolic degrees or of fixed stars. It must be underlined that they are not included in the reports we sell because they are not reliable enough. We publish them as a reference for researchers.
While astrology is interesting for friends and relatives, it is even more valuable for observing the world. To illustrate our reports and our applications, we have set up a database that we maintain daily since 2002. As a result, visitors can study over 50 000 natal charts of celebrities using search tools devised to this end: search by planet position and aspect, by social and professional category , by date, etc.
*Astrotheme main founder and contributor, Philippe Lepoivre de Vesle started his career in 1980 as an engineer and scientific researcher in the field of programmes of simulation and optimisation of electronic components. Afterwards he specialised in Systems and Networks (IBM, DEC), and in 1990, he founded his own company to supply corporate companies with services and IT advice.
He discovered astrology in September 1972 when still a teenager, as by happenstance he stepped in a bookstore in Paris and found the excellent Traité Pratique d'Astrologie (Practical Treatise of Astrology) by the famous André Barbault. Impressed, and convinced after years of experimentation, he fervently practised astrology in parallel with his career. Then he decided to dedicate more time to it and created Astrotheme. He drafted the interpretations and devised the website's various reports and applications: dominants calculations, portraits, forecasts based on transits, compatibility of couple and other self-service applications in cooperation with Brice Joly, an expert in IT development and database. He also worked with several authors, astrologers, translators and high-level contributors.
