About Michael Wann
Michael Wann is an anomaly. Despite being raised in America’s most celebrated “planned community” (and large-scale social engineering experiment), he has been able to create an authentic and original expression of life. But considering this is an astrology-services website, let's begin looking at Michael through the lens of his own astrology.
(If you are interested in his perspective, cultural analysis, art, personal stories and more, considering subscribing to his SubscribeStar account or follow him on Instagram.)
He is light, fun, philosophical and immensely creative.
His Sun, Jupiter, Mercury and Neptune are in Sagittarius in the 5th house.
Strong communications with the Collective Subconscious and the Universal.
This is indicated by a Cancer-rising linked with a 12th house Gemini moon, and a Mercury aligned to the Galactic Center.
A deep understanding of the destructive and transformative qualities of the subconscious.
Pluto sits directly on the bottom of his chart (the I.C) and serves as the base a six-pointed star configuration.

A double grand trine, in the Seal of Solomon alignment, is considered both a blessing and curse. The astrological elements involved here are Sun-Chiron-South Node and Pluto-Saturn-North Node.
The 5th house (creativity) and 6th house (service) are most dominant,
the 12th house (soul) Moon is most significant.
Michael was born and raised in Columbia, MD. He graduated high school in 1990 and college in 1994, with a degree in finance. The first 20 years of his life were ho-hum normal, though there was always something strange just under the surface.

In his 20s, he worked in the emerging internet industry, for companies in the DC area that would build the foundation of cloud computing and 5G technology.
Shortly after the events of 9/11 (he lived less than 5 miles from the Pentegon), he spent 2 years working for an architect, where he learned how to think: the ability to balance imagination with practicality.
In 2005, he moved to Lancaster, PA and began work as a real estate development consultant, conducting market feasibility studies for large-scale developers. Here he learned to research.
During this time, he began his study into the way things work: conspiracy, hidden history, esotericism, magic, hypnosis, NLP, sacred geometry, syncromysticism, spy craft and energy.
In 2009 he began to create art. Since he couldn't paint, nor had any other training, he develop his own techniques. His "painting with paper" works were shown in many galleries and shows. Eventually his medium of choice moved to wood, and leather.
Key Influential Experiences
In 2011, he did a 10-day ayahuasca retreat in the Peruvian jungle. This was his only ayahuasca experience, but it had a profound and lasting impact.
From 2009 to 2012 he studied aikido and qi gong with a master teacher, who was one generation from Koichi Tohei. This experience made energy a tangible practice and put him in his body for the first time.
In 2013 he began a year long correspondence course with the School of Esoteric Studies, an offshoot of the Theosophical Society. Though it wasn't a longterm experience, it familiarized him with many concepts that are followed by the hands that guide society.
From 2010 to 2015 he took as many classes, in as many disciplines, as he could, focused upon magic and energy work. This includes western mystery schools, eastern meditation and energy techniques and Native American spirituality. He kept what worked and disregarded the rest.
With the exception of a college fraternity, Michael is member of NO secret societies and has made ZERO oaths or pledges to any group which he studied with.
About The Starboard
The Starboard was created in the Autumn of 2015 in Wilmington, DE, with the assistance of Sarah Murray. It is a teaching tool, an energy tool and mythic gameboard. Every detail was designed to convey information and has meaning.
In this mixed-media piece, characters from different collage works were superimposed over an image of Highpoint Scenic Vista (Susquehanna River at the 40th parallel), with the Starboard on the compass rose found at the center of the park.
Considering this site is ultimately to sell services, a 3rd-party verification of Michael's ability to see what many others can not, is in order. (The following is a mainstream explanation of mystical insight.)
In November 2001, he enrolled in the world-renowned Rockport Institute's career design course. This program includes a sophisticated test to identify natural abilities and attributes (it currently costs $500 just to take the test). On the right is a picture of his results. Like an IQ test, time doesn't change the results.
The scores are given by percentile, relative only to those who have taken the test before. The comparison group is made up of 1000s of individuals of the "especially intelligent." A score of 50 means in the 50th percentile of a "highly select group."
Michael scored in the 99th percentile (the highest possible score) for Diagnostic Reasoning. Diagnostic Reasoning is the ability to draw accurate conclusions with limited information. Michael does this better than 99% of the population. This ability, to see hidden connections, is applied to everything he puts his focus upon.
