German astrologer, exponent and developer of Cosmobiology from 1938. He wrote over 60 astrological textbooks, including "The Contact Cosmogram" "Applied Cosmobiology" and "Influence of Pluto on Love Life." His work included 21 volumes translated into other languages, 50 annuals of Cosmobiology and 40 annuals of Cosmobiology Yearbooks. He developed many interesting methods such as midpoint-structure, psychograms and the 90 degree-wheel, and was also interested in distance values, heliocentric, mundane and prognostic astrology, primary directions and Pluto research.

When he was five, Reinhold's parents divorced and he was placed in a foster home. During childhood and adolescence, his contacts with his mother, Elsbeth, were sporadic, made more difficult by interference from his father and paternal grandfather. When he was 16, Elsbeth introduced him to his chart and to astrology, which proved to be a turning point in his life. At 21, he and his mother were finally reunited and he began his extensive studies of astrology. He worked at the time as a schoolteacher.

In 1923, he began his practice and on 10/28/1928, he founded the Ebertin Publishing House in Erfurt with the assistance and encouragement of his mother.

He turned to Cosmobiology in 1938, based on the endeavors of Dr. Ferrhow from Vienna, 1914.

Reinhold met his future wife, Luise Engbert, at the Astrologers Convention at Nuremberg in 1929 and they married on 12/12/1929. Their only son, Baldur, was born 7/21/1933. He and Luise had a close and supportive marriage. Reinhold was widowed in 1983 after 53 years. Totally dedicated to a vegetarian diet, he also practiced yoga. He finished a new book after his 85th birthday. Ebertin died in the early morning of 3/14/1988, Mirschlanden, Germany.
