Cynthia Thinnes has practiced astrology for over 35 years. Her first astrology teacher was her mother, and she started casting charts by hand when she was 12 years old. Cynthia spent many years studying and honing her craft, and on June 4, 1998, she passed the Level II Examination of the National Council for Geocosmic Research.
Later she became interested in Classical Western methods and practices and studied under P. James Clark, receiving a Certificate of Proficiency (With Distinction) in Essential Classical Astrology on November 22, 2006.
In addition to her astrological studies, Cynthia went to law school and practiced Family Law for 10 years. She retired from the practice of law in 2013 and is currently a Professional Astrologer and a writer.

She brings this understanding to her practice when working with astrological compatibility.
