The Andrés Zuzunaga Venn Diagram
I am Andrés Zuzunaga, founder and director of Cosmograma. I have spent many years looking for the meaning of life. I started in the material world studying economic sciences, but when I finished I realized that it was not for me.
I worked ten years as a programmer in Barcelona and New York; I progressively realized all my personal and professional dreams to the point that I no longer knew what else to invent. I felt more empty and lost than ever. All this led me to a crisis of consciousness, somatized in anxiety attacks and, subsequently, in a depression that made me see that the material search was over.
At that moment I started with yoga, meditation and all kinds of emotional therapies, physical and mental. I trained and worked as a yoga teacher for four years. I also did training in gestalt therapy for two years. I started the career of psychology, enneagram formations, human design, and so on. I felt better and the physical symptoms disappeared, but I still couldn’t find my place in the world.
Finally, one day I met again with astrology. After a psychological interpretation that I received from my astral letter and during the weeks that followed, the work of so many years of therapy took formation to allow me to reach a deep understanding of myself. That understanding was followed by great peace and acceptance. At that time I decided to leave everything to devote myself to psychological astrology through different schools and the dozens of books.
With time and passion, I began to I get results, and seven years ago I managed to take astrology to the University of Barcelona, through the Master in Personal Development and Leadership – the fruit of everything I’ve learned over the years about astrology, psychology, science and philosophy In 2017 I published the book Somos Cosmos through Cosmograma Ediciones.
Currently, I am still researching and disseminating astrology.
