Erik focuses on horary astrology as a means to answer important yes-no questions of everyday and personal life. He too focuses on resuscitating the classic techniques of natal astrology. Erik has published several books in German language, he delivers workshops and lectures in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, The Netherlands, Belgium and Italy in German, Dutch and Italian.

It is made up as a training course for self-study, beginning with basic rules of horary astrology, and continuing with rules of localization and dating, and of electional astrology. The techniques developed by great horary astrologers like Masha'allah and William Lilly arey taught precisely. Erik's wife, Sonja van Slooten, has contributed a chapter on classic medical horary work. At the end of each chapter the reader will find questions and exercises allowing a precise training control. Answers and solutions are given in the appendix. A beautiful, a mature, a pragmatic and at the same time sage work that quickly will get a benchmark in Astrology!
