The American astrologer Chris Brennan was born on November 1st 1984 at 13:28:30 MST in Aurora (Colorado).[1]


At the age of five he lost his dad to cancer.[2]

He lives in Denver, Co/USA.


From 2003 to 2006 Brennan was educated at Kepler College. There he focused on cross-cultural comparisons between the astrological traditions. He has a keen interest in the history, philosophy, and practice of ancient astrology, and is specialized in the Greco-Roman tradition of astrology known as Hellenistic Astrology, although he also draws on his background in modern astrology regularly, for example by incorporating elements such as the outer planets.
For some time he was actively involved in Robert Hand's Project Hindsight.

He was the former President of the Association for Young Astrologers, and a former Research Director of the NCGR. Currently he is an associate editor of The Mountain Astrologer magazine, and writes a monthly column there on auspicious dates for beginning new ventures using Electional Astrology.

In 2008 he founded an astrology group that holds monthly meetings in Colorado called The Denver Astrology Group. In 2012 he started recording a weekly podcast called The Astrology Podcast.

Though still quite young, he already is a well-known astrologer, very active and full of initiative.
