John Sellke

Future Astrology
A Theosophical and Field-Theoretic Approach

John will present the basics of Prismatic Astrology—a new paradigm and set of techniques for astrological research. His lecture will cover the theosophical basis of astrology and the creation of novel kinds of astrological charts, both exoteric and esoteric, and their subsequent harmonic analysis using contemporary digital signal processing techniques. New kinds of chart superimpositions are discussed, with the potential for transforming how synastries and timelines are calculated and interpreted. Prismatic concepts are then extended to 3D astrology and, finally, to a ray-theoretic treatment of esoteric astrology. Although prismatic astrology is highly technical, the lecture is designed to be intuitive and visually stimulating with many charts and graphs. It is suitable for a lay astrological audience and does not require a mathematical background or familiarity with theosophy. Come see where astrology—at least one form of it—may be headed in the future!

John Evard Sellke holds a Bachelor of Science in Physics (magna cum laude) from the University of Texas at El Paso. He was a Graduate Fellow in Physics at New Mexico State University and then later at Rice University in Houston, TX. Subsequently, he had a multi-decade career in petroleum exploration and aerospace engineering with roles as a computer-generated image (CGI) integrator, a technical facilitator, and an embedded real-time software architect and developer. His work around the planet involved many kinds of moving hardware platforms, including international commercial airline simulators and the International Space Station. His interests in astrology, philosophy, mathematics, and the psychology of religion are lifelong ones. In 2013, he founded Adi Research LLC to formalize his research in the integration of these domains. John is authoring a forthcoming treatise titled “Prismatic Astrology,” which is a synthesis of contemporary theosophy and field-theoretic spectral analysis applied to astrology. He is a member of the Tucson Astrologers’ Guild. Website: Email:

* = Our scheduled speaker for April, Philip Comi, could not make it. John has willingly stepped quite unexpectedly and graciously to cover Friday night, but felt he didn't have enough for Saturday Workshop, so there will be no Saturday Workshop this month. Please come out on Friday night to show thanks for John's graciousness and to support the Guild.
