About Nāthan

Nāthan Theodore Naicker has a background as a petroleum engineer in the oil and gas industry and has been practicing astrology professionally since 2014. He began learning psychological astrology in 2010, then moved onto traditional western astrology with qualifications in natal, horary, mundane, locational, and medical branches. He has a Diploma in Medieval Astrology (Zoller, 2012) and a Diploma in Astrological Studies (Suskin, 2014). Born into a strong Indian cultural heritage, he naturally gravitated toward eastern forms of astrology. Since 2016, he began studying a holistic form of Vedic Astrology, which combines meaning and techniques from astrological, scriptural, tantric, yogic and omenology in the Indian tradition and visits India 2-3 months a year for that purpose. He is now based in India. His specialized consultations take into account factors from both Western and Vedic astrological traditions. Nāthan runs retreats in South Africa, and hosts webinars, workshops, and private courses online. Given his perspective for different forms of Astrology as complementary, he performs Rectification for clients and other astrologers around the world.
