Important Announcement

With the recent passing of Robert Schmidt's wife, Ellen Black, the estate and works of these brilliant people has been passed on to Ted and Kathryn Higson. We (Jon and Tara Baklund) created this Robert Schmidt Astrology site to help bring Robert's work to the world as well as provide extra income to Ellen for their life's work. We are now working with Ted and Kathryn to take the work to the next point. Here's an important message from the Higsons:


Our Project Hindsight domain ( that we have owned since 1999 has been stolen. We are investigating this theft with Network Solutions and an attorney specializing in this type of crime. While we wait to regain access to our domain, we are operating the Project Hindsight website from the domain, and will build out content in the coming days.
Further, any unauthorized publication of materials from the Ellen Black and Robert Schmidt Estate - whether audio, video, print, or previously published books - will face legal action from Project Hindsight, LLC
