Beginning His Vedic Astrology Career
As his career karma changed , Doug was fortunately introduced to Vedic Astrology in 1996 on Longboat Key, Floirda by James
Braha, pioneer Vedic Astrology author.
In 1997, Doug relocated to
Sedona, Arizona for continued Vedic studies at the American
Council of Vedic Astrology (ACVA). A full-time professional
astrologer since 1999, Doug is certified by ACVA.
Doug offers Traditional Navagraha Vedic Astrology in a easily accessible and straightforward manner. There is no hidden agenda, nor any spiritual mumbo-jumbo...
Doug simply interprets charts, considering additionally only the milieu
in which you live. He has the humanistic goal of illuminating the
karmic path with practical and objective truths about fate and free
will -- so you may dance with the stars.
enjoys interpreting individual charts, for he found he can really help clients gain personal understanding and plan for the future. However, with
his worldly educational and first career business experience, he gravitated
toward understanding world trends and events through Vedic Astrology.
Predicting 9-11 & The Celestial Wheel
In 2000, Doug began offering mundane Astrology predictions to
his email list. His September, 2001 forecast stated, There
may also be some religious fanaticism aggravating the situation -
Mideast stuff? I see 9/10 - 9/14 as being really bizarre."
When a client called on 9-11 telling him to turn on his TV, he was
astounded! When the Boston Phoenix newspaper later interviewed
Doug and featured his prediction in Prophets of Doom, he was convinced and then launched The Celestial Wheel, The news before it happens.
The full integration of Doug's skills came when his predictions for the
economic collapse began to come true, what he termed the Millennium Contraction. His consultations now includes advice on the necessary personal transformation each of us must make to fit our old square pegs into new round holes.
In April, 2010, Doug's Vedic chart signaled a move. He left the Arizona desert, returning Back East -- his Personal Transformation Through The Millennium Contraction
-- the long term economic and social transformation that continues
until 2015. Doug's epic journey by motor scooter is chronicled on
his The Celestial Wheel web site is offered free at, April, 2010 Page 1 April, 2010 Page 2 and May, 2010.

...the subtle and causal gravities of the Nine Grahas (planets)
influence the way in which we experience the results of our karmas by
seizing and controlling our subtle and causal bodies. By analogy,
although thought has minimal 'reality' in the physical universe, it is the cause of most physical actions that most humans perform.
