About Mark Lerner

Mark Lerner began his astrological studies in New York City in June 1972 – on the same day that he began taking a chemistry class at Columbia University to prepare for a pre-Med training and entry into Medical School.

Instead of becoming a physician like his father and uncle, a few months later he decided to become a professional astrologer after reading a variety of astrological books, including masterworks by the eminent Dane Rudhyar.

Having already graduated Michigan State University with High Honors and a B.A. in Social Science, he completed an intensive, self-directed one-year training in learning professional astrology from A to Z. He started his active consultation work in the summer of 1973.

After working at the Alice A. Bailey/Arcane School in Manhattan (1975-1976) and becoming a member of the Findhorn Community in Northern Scotland (1976-1979), Mark became a father for the first time in August 1979.

Settling back in the USA in 1980, he initiated The Great Bear as an astrological educational center and journal in Amherst, Massachusetts. This is where his second daughter was born at the Summer Solstice in 1981 – on the same day that Welcome to Planet Earth astrology journal began publication.

This newsletter eventually grew into a newspaper and magazine over a time-period of 19 years (1981-2000) in Massachusetts, Madison, Wisconsin and Eugene, Oregon (where Mark has lived and worked since 1984). WTPE journal reached thousands of astrological students and professionals around the nation and world, and it became well-respected as one of the top periodicals concerning Mundane Astrology (focusing on the higher destiny of nations, humanity and Spaceship Earth).

The first WTPE astrological web site was launched in the mid-1990s and the new Earth Aquarius News web site represents a great ideal and dream of merging astrological wisdom with late-breaking reporting in an online newspaper format.Mark has done thousands of astrological consultations – in person, by telephone and e-mail, and 90-minute and 1-hour consultations – during more than four decades of professional work. He has appeared on TV, been interviewed on radio and by newspapers, and lectured at many conferences.

He organized and created two successful Planet Earth Astrology conferences in 1988 and 1990 – each conference attended by over 150 subscribers.For more information on his consultations, the School of Planetary Studies astrological course (with 36 1-hour CDs-classes), wide variety of astrological reports in .PDF format and sent via email attachment, color birth charts (also sent via email attachment), and Daily Cosmic Kalendar forecasts, explore the rest of this extensive web site or contact him at

We are aware that if you are currently using Dark Mode in iOS settings, the font color of the Kalendar is too light. This will be fixed in the near future, but in the meantime, if you need to view more clearly, you can adjust off of Dark Mode and will see the screen in proper black font. Thank you for your understanding.

I have been creating a Daily Cosmic Kalendar since 1981 that goes way beyond personal Sun-sign interpretations. Each day's entry can assist you in moving forward, being more successful and avoiding pitfalls. 


The valuable and important sky cycles and alignments described in the Daily Cosmic Kalendar are crucial for students of astrology and professionals in our field to understand because, while each person has his or her own personal cycles (known as transits and progressions) influencing one’s birth chart, the everyday influences in the heavens – for everyone as written in the Daily Cosmic Kalendar – will either support or potentially interfere with your own dynamic aspects. Therefore, people who learn about astrology and begin to understand their natal chart patterns and their personal cycles also need to tune-into the everyday celestial alignments – which are another entire realm of important astrological influences that will either reinforce what is going on for you or potentially impede your plans.


If you only learn about your own horoscope, and are fortunate enough to become a professional astrologer or find a professional astrologer to help you interpret the major celestial alignments influencing your life each day, but you don’t know what is going on with the always-changing sky configurations as presented in the Daily Cosmic Kalendar, you are missing a wealth of information that is actually a vital part of your proceeding upward on your Higher Destiny path in this lifetime.


The Daily Cosmic Kalendar is not a personal horoscope or tailored to your birth information. If you are looking for a personal horoscope, consider one of our astrology reports, especially The Sky Within, located in our shop, or a professional consultation. If you have additional questions about the Cosmic Kalendar, please contact us. Thank you!

Cosmic Chat is for Premium Subscribers only. You must be a subscriber to view and particiapte in this area of the app.

Join us to be part of the World Goodwill Meditation Group – associated with Lucis Trust, where I worked in the 1970s in NYC and with spiritual centers around the globe. To quote from the Lucis Trust website...

"Goodwill is one of the most basic spiritual qualities of the human being and the great untapped resource at the heart of every human community. This energy is potentially a powerful force for social change – yet its power remains largely unrecognized and underutilized. World Goodwill fosters understanding of this energy and the role it is playing in the development of a new humanity…World Goodwill is Love in Action.”

The Cosmic Chat is an opportunity for us to join together, asking and exploring questions pertaining to astrology, its higher significance and ability to create goodwill in all of our lives.
