He is the man who single-handedly applied computer technology to astrological measurement, research, and interpretation. He founded MATRIX software long ago, and from crucial algorithms to interpretation zenith, Erlewine has been the formative and leading light of astrology’s modern growth. After inventing the technological applications, Erlewine humanized it all, adding perception and incisive practical analyses to modern, computerized astrology. Now, for a second generation of astrologers and their public, Erlewine’s genius continues with StarTypes … and it’s simply amazing!” Erlewine has had several careers.
