The field of astrology called Cosmobiology is a system based on the research of surveyor/astrologer Alfred Witte (1878-1941), to whom its origins should properly be credited. After Witte's death in 1941, the German physician/astrologer Reinhold Ebertin (1901-1988) took Witte's research and used it as the foundations for his School of Cosmobiology.

Cosmobiology is a form of astrology which employs hard aspect patterns obtained from 90° dials. Cosmobiology charts are called Cosmograms and can be placed directly on 90° or 45° chart forms. Midpoint patterns are used to ascertain life experiences that are difficult to find with conventional astrology.

In cosmobiological analysis, planets are inserted into a special type of horoscope often referred to as a cosmogram (a 90° dial chart) and delineated.

The major difference between Uranian Astrology and Cosmobiology has been the controversial use of Trans-Neptunian objects, now known as astronomical realities due to recent space research technology, but sharply denied by the Cosmobiologists for many years.

Cosmobiology eschews the use of traditional house systems and uses a complicated charting method to develop a cosmogram of heavenly objects that places special importance on midpoints. A midpoint is a point half way between two planets (or other notables).
