Koiner, Lynn(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
Lynn Koiner has been a full-time professional astrologer since June 1969 and a professional member of the American Federation of Astrologers (AFA). She had the opportunity to study directly with Ernest Grant, cofounder of the AFA, and he was her sponsor into this organization in 1969.
Since 1984, she has published an astrological quarterly, the Amethyst, dedicated to current astrological trends, planetary cycles, and how they affect the individual personally. From 1994 through 1999, she served as vice president and president of the National Council for Geocosmic Research in Baltimore, Maryland, and she currently serves as newsletter editor for both the Baltimore and Annapolis chapters. With a research specialty since 1972 on Transpluto, she was a contributing author on this topic in Noel Tyl’s Astrology’s Special Measurements.
Koiner’s primary areas of research include: medical topics; the Solar Max and its impact upon human behavior; the Nelson Model and solar activity; the phenomena of UFO abductees; esoteric astrology (A. A. Bailey) and the fixed stars discussed by Bailey; Transpluto; and Venus transits (an astronomical term for a rare phenomena when Venus crosses the face of the Sun).
Since the 1970s, Koiner has been examining the psychological patterns shown in the horoscope as connected with specific diseases. The philosophy is that correcting a problematic personality characteristic can impact recovery or prevent onset. The first disease research was blood sugar disorders and some of this research was published in Tyl’s book. Subsequent areas of research have been auto-immune system, Alzheimer’s disease, respiratory system, skin, addiction (obesity), and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In July 2000, Koiner received the Sims Pounds Jr. Award from the American Federation of Astrologers for her research lectures on medical astrology.
Since 1999, Koiner has been working and consulting with members of the scientific community (physicists and astronomers). There has been much research conducted in the realm of traditional science that can be incorporated into astrological studies. In this area, she has been examining the data on earthquakes. The Society for Scientific Exploration has been one of the bridging scientific organizations.
