“When I think about what the future holds for mankind, I see a world teeming with self-aware and self-responsible individuals. Where each person understands who they are, their relationship with nature, and what they have to offer the world. They share ideas with one another, with a willingness to give, care for, and nurture those around them. There is inspiration in their hearts, where their love for life is met with technical skill and a willingness to improve themselves and help those around them. In our future world, individuals have healthy relationships, where the truths about life and themselves are not hidden, but lit for all to see. Where spiritual growth and transformation is a normal way of life. In this world, possibilities for the future are shared on a regular basis, and integrated into the systems and structures of society. A world where communities flourish with uniqueness and innovative contributions, and a faith in God emits a calming state of presence and compassion in all.
This is a society that lives in accordance with natural law as depicted by the 13 signs of the zodiac. It is my life’s commitment to help those around me live this life today using what I consider to be the most powerful tool for living: true sidereal astrology. It is not a matter of whether mankind as a whole will live in this world, but when, and as far as I’m concerned what I can do to help speed up the process.”

Trilogy of Awareness
The Magic of Love and Intimacy
Awareness: Being Fully Alive
(New!) Big Little Book of Whispers
Originally from Ohio, I live in Florida with my partner, C.J. Heck, who is also an author.
At the age of 21, I had an experience that transformed the course of my life. Some people might call it cosmic consciousness, others may refer to it as a salvation experience, but I prefer to call it becoming AWARE.
Over the years, I’ve been compelled to write and share insights (whispers) on Awareness and Astrology that come to me without my asking for them. It’s a privilege to share them and to allow the reader to decide whether they ring true to them deep inside.
I’m not a salesman for any particular philosophy or religion. I only know what I ‘know’. Beliefs are for those seeking truth through the ideas borrowed from others.
To me, awareness is personally ‘knowing’ one’s true nature, path, and purpose in life. It is revealed specifically to each of us who have the courage to surrender their mind and ego and let go of the need to control their life.
The mind is a great tool for analyzing and understanding the physical world, until the ego joins with it. Then the distortion of reality begins. It takes an awakened heart and the simplicity and purity of feelings to regain a sense of purpose and meaning to life.
I hope that those who read my books and writings will feel the same joy and hope that I feel when these insights (whispers) are given to me to share.
For those of you who might be interested, I am an Astrologer and I specialize in Natal Astrology, Astrological Forecasting, Relationship Astrology, Electional Astrology and Relocation Astrology.
I focus on the challenges and changes that take place in a person’s life. I can help illuminate what is occurring and how best to grow from each situation towards a deeper, more awakened self.
I have had several appearances on radio and TV in my career.

The Astrological services that Steven Cozzi offers mainly concentrates on his area of expertise, location astrology. He helps people determine which place will be the best for them to live. Clients may be on the move or have a situation where they will be traveling or interacting with certain regions or cities. The information he gathers can help you relocate to a different part of a metropolitan area, or within a state or region. In fact astro-locality maps can pin-point the influences any where on the planet at any time. There is no perfect place but most people can improve their life and situation simply by being able to define the influence of area that they are living in or the place that they are moving to. Most people fear change yet when the options are clearly presented change can become a fortunate choice. This system of astrology follows the planetary lines from your birth chart and also where they are now. It’s a very comprehensive vision of possibilities. Within this system we also are able to look at the home and neighborhood. The method is a form of astrological geomancy (feng shui). Steven Cozzi literally wrote the book on location astrology, Planets in Locality, which is a must for all serious students of astrology and professionals interested in this fascinating specialty.
