Video Q+A Interview with Christopher Renstrom

NCGR interview with Christopher Renstrom by Nadia Smirnova-Mierau. 

Christopher Renstrom gives a lecture on Sunday, 02/18/17 entitled 'The History of Saturn'.

Saturn has always maintained an outsider status in Astrology.  Loathed and feared, Saturn was the planet associated with Jews, blacks, slaves, the elderly and the destitute.  This is a far cry from its current connection to rigid authority and the money-class.  So how did this happen?  By drawing on art, iconography and literature, I will reconstruct Saturn’s secret history and present a second look at the planet that is often stigmatized.

Christopher is the creator of, a subscription-based interactive Astrology website, adapted from his bestselling book, Ruling Planets, published by HarperCollins in 2002.  Christopher also writes the daily horoscopes for “The San Francisco Chronicle” and  He created and wrote the horoscope column for “Allure” magazine from 1991 through 2009.  Now the exclusive astrologer for Patti Stanger (the Millionaire Matchmaker), his weekly forecasts appear on  Christopher was voted Best Astrologer by Utah’s “City Weekly” in 2012 and 2013.
