34 Sad Facts About
Gianpaolo DiCocco 1.
His predictions fail. "Gianpaolo" (Paul DiCocco) made three different videos all predicting
Queen Elizabeth of England would die by the end of September 2017.
He got a lot of attention this way. When September 2017 came and went, he deleted them all.
DiCocco predicted that Marine Le Pen would win the
DiCocco predicted a Le Pen Win multiple times, including in 2 YouTube videos.
In the Facebook post below DiCocco, who is the only one who
can "make astrology great," predicts Le Pen anew.
He also got "Le Pen wins" from his Tarot Card reading (just to
snide, pompous DiCocco in his dime store costume hat made sure to mock
for predicting Le Pen -- just before he himself jumped on the Le Pen
DiCocco mocked other astrologers for predicting Le
Pen. Above he puts the word "astrologer" in quotes for Barry Goddard.
He states "I'll tell you right now that Le Pen's natal charts and
transits...do NOT look good at all for her."
So he's always
flip-flopping. After he saw others predicting Le Pen, DiCocco jumped on
the Le Pen
bandwagon with both feet. He made two
videos predicting her.
But in the above post
the "voice of the cosmos" wants to wait
until it's narrowed down to two before he tries a prediction.

DiCocco placed huge significance on a trifle like Le Pen's

mathematician-astrologer (along with hundreds of other "parts") that

studied Arabic Parts. (And as usual, he
points to no examples where the P-O-F
figured in other cases or election wins, but simply asserts.)

true astrology that always predicts,'

a big deal whatsoever." The only one who can "make
astrology great" now

In two Freudian slips he says:
"The show must go on" and "Now to carry on with business
DiCocco is now getting slaughtered so badly in Comments for the two
videos he had to disable comments. Ever
the slippery eel, the "Voice of the Cosmos" now claims he had
faulty birth data. (How incompetent! How negligent!)
Speaking of himself in the Third Person DiCocco writes: "GianPaolo
predicted Le Pen;
however, due to new evidence, that prediction is null and void. BOTH
candidates have faulty birth data."
(Freaky Fact: The Kook makes extreme attacks against Locational
Julian Lee who he calls "negligent" for having an incorrect birth year
for him, though Lee sincerely tried to help him and was not paid.
Notwithstanding that faulty data Lee's prediction
of career improvements came true for DiCocco in California,
DiCocco acknowledges he attained the best position
and pay of
his life, plus went from being a nobody to being famous in a
career of astrological pundit and enfant
In one of his first videos DiCocco dances around his
bedroom in Pasadena with a toilet plunger
while wrapped in the American flag and threatens viewers with
it. Was it a sign?
The 20 minute difference Kook points to for an alternate Le Pen chart
would create no change in house rulers;
would give basically the same chart. Both candidates would have been
having the same planetary transits on election day and during this
period. Le Pen would have still had transiting Mercury conjunct her
Saturn on election day (a giveaway: you get bad news and goodbyes
then), and Macron would have had the same raft of positive
transits on election day, including Jupiter all over his Pluto during
this period. But DiCocco is desperately trying to shore up his strange
image-quest to be "voice of the cosmos" and 'the only real astrologer
in the world.'
nervous to predict, DiCocco tried to put an "out" into his prediction;
some fail-deniability, by stating there could be "election fraud."
However, this won't fly. The purpose of an astrological prediction is
to say who wins -- along with whatever factors are in the background.
Whether there is "fraud," or the weather sunny or cloudy, or a band
plays a marching tune as she wins, or whether the media praises or
attacks -- that should all be part of the prediction picture: "Le Pen wins; there is fraud"
or "Macron wins and
he's sad about winning" or "Le Pen wins and she has huge
enemies against her" or "Macron wins and money pushed
him through" or "Le
Pen wins but also falls down the stairs." Other background
factors like these would be part of the prediction-picture. The goal of
a mundane astrologer is to predict who wins,
whatever may be the picture and background details of that win.
Fun fact: Knowing he merely lucked out with his "big" Trump prediction,
DiCocco is insecure in his use of astrology.
With the French election just two days away and feeling nervous about
he resorted to Tarot card reading (suddenly a Tarot expert):
says his Tarot reading predicts a Le Pen win. Still got it wrong!
Will Runes be his next specialty and forte?
DiCocco states that he is not Jewish but is Catholic.
But he looks Jewish, mocks the pope, has
many Jewish followers on his Facebook -- even Israelis.
He does "readings" about Israel that are protective of Israel,
angry about issues that Jews commonly get exercised about.
There is no one who DiCocco targets more viciously than astrologer Julian Lee,
and Lee is an open critic of the Jewish White-genocide agenda.
The French Election is just one more fail in DiCocco's growing list

insisted that this common event fulfilled his
exaggerated, dramatically worded prediction.
(Even though he was "four days off.")
Likely, Chicago alone had more shootings that day.
In the following posts from that thread, DiCocco is seen spinning that

DiCocco has been observed copying the predictions of other astrologers,
sometimes missing/losing along with them.
Julian Lee, who doesn't claim
to do mundane (political) astrology,
signified a Trump win months
earlier than DiCocco.
After the election Lee didn't say a word
about his tweets, considering it a small thing.
DiCocco has been found
quoting and copying Lee, who DiCocco viciously attacks, on a number of
occasions. He sometimes makes statements about astrology that Lee made
to DiCocco during the reading given to DiCocco, and presents them as
Lee not only gave the nod to Trump earlier in the year,
but made reference to the fact that many astrologers have

a lot of noise imitatingLee's election opinion and his views about liberal bias in astrology. All while attacking Lee. (Related: See here and here for Gianpaolo (Paul) DiCocco stating that he's a psychopath.)
DiCocco's late-in-the-game Trump prediction, using garden variety
DiCocco's whole claim to fame, from which he hopes to be considered the
greatest astrologer in the world and build a marketing empire involving
cups, T-shirts, contests. He appears to put a great deal of time and
energy into marketing and self-promotion. 4.
In 2013 Paul DiCocco (GianPaolo later) was not even
familiar with his own natal chart.
(See below.) He was living with his mother, chronically unemployed with
difficulty keeping jobs
in technical medical support services. At that time he'd
decided he wanted to be an undertaker
Soon after that he changed his mind and tried to become a paralegal.
Soon after that he stated he was doing studies in pre-medical.
By 2016 DiCocco was somehow suddenly a popular and notorious YouTube
heavily marketing himself, selling cups and shirts with a "Maga"
gimmick, and promoting himself
as a voice of "the cosmos." He attacked other astrologers (he'd been
getting readings for years),
an astrologer with a high reputation who helped him, gave him a lot of
and who refunded DiCocco when he stated he was unhappy.
This domain was acquired not for profit or resale, but to answer to his
and malicious attacks
and inform the world about him.
For astrology, DiCocco states he had "no teacher but the cosmos." 6.
While DiCocco accuses other astrologers of downgrading the "sacred
DiCocco wrote that he use canned "lines" in his
He wrote this on his Facebook: "I love using this line in
readings when I see Jupiter in the 5th House. 'In any case, you like
to spread yourself, which just might include your legs if you know
what I mean!' " 7.
Though he suddenly presents himself as the world's greatest astrologer,
there is no evidence he has significant experience in any
field of astrology.
His experience with readings is negligible, only recently starting them.
(He has likely not done more than a dozen paid readings.) He has
presented no original research
such as identifying patterns from multiple charts/cases. He seldom
provides any cite
to back up his opinions or predictions (most predictions
are safely far away in time). He
appears to pick up random tidbits from articles and books, usually not
attribution, then simply asserts a "fact" about someone or a
while name-dropping a plethora of astrological factors for dazzle,
whether or not those factors have any strong association with his
lore, books, or articles. Astrologers often express disgust with

quack by students of astrology: "Love his mantra and
exploitative branding... 'Make Astrology Quack
Again!' This guy is obviously a pretender. I hope
[his] post was a joke or something..." Or
Or this thread: "The Worst YouTube Astrologer--GianPaolo
Though having plenty of chutzpah, DiCocco has not had the
chutzpah yet to even call himself an "astrologer."
He carefully calls himself an "astrologist" or "astrojournalist"
the strange term "astropathologist."
This term refers to DiCocco's plan to smear "bad astrologers." 9.
Yet he offers readings and tries to demand high fees for them, in the
range of $300.
DiCocco once wrote that he is an astrological "generalist."
But he proffers readings in all kinds of specialties.
He does mundane
and political astrology,
and anything else he can think of. After stating that he doesn't think
much of locational
astrology, saying "Wherever
you go, there you are," he began offering
"Astrocartography" readings (locational advice). Though not having even
relocated client under his belt, he presents himself as an expert in
did not refer to Medical Astrology, a term DiCocco would
But when someone referred to "astropathologist" as a "non-existent
discipline," DiCocco suddenly
became a Medical Astrologer and came out with a reading on
"the astrology of breast cancer."
This was for obfuscation. DiCocco has little experience studying cancer
After making a prediction DiCocco sometimes changes the text and
of his prediction if it looks like it's not coming true, or he enlarges
the window in which it 'might happen.' 11.
DiCocco clearly presents himself as the world's greatest astrologer.
But day after day, news sites like DrudgeReport.com feature major
DiCocco fails to predict. Though he has 'all the
secrets' and the mind of 'the cosmos,'
DiCocco is seen lately waiting for the first round of French
elections to complete
because "the cosmos" doesn't feel confident enough to predict from a
large field of candidates. 12.
In 2016 DiCocco stated astrology was only his "hobby." Based
on an unimpressive political prediction, by 2017
he started calling himself voice of the "cosmos." Despite
an insubstantial track record with real clients he began
asking $350 for
Aside from his spurious and cynical interpretations, DiCocco makes
and distortions and plays fast and loose with astrological facts.
He states that he does not have Mercury-square-Neptune because it's a
tiny bit over 10 degrees.
(Fascinatingly, the circus master and hoaxer P.T. Barnum also had
and it was a weaker square that DiCocco's.)
DiCocco stated that Marine Le Pen has her Part-Of-Fortune "strongly conjunct"

the French Aries Ingress chart. But her POF is 2 degrees away,
not a close conjunction, especially for a mere mathematical

need to be very tight, even tighter than for Fixed Stars,
i.e. within about 1 degree.)
stated that astrologer Julian Lee has Pluto in the 5th House (DiCocco stands by natal
Neither of these is true. 14.
DiCocco created a photoshopped fake Tweet "from Donald Trump" praising
DiCocco for being smart. After predicting Trump's assassination,
DiCocco wanted to become "Trump's astrologer."
"The Cosmos" is often found feeding his astrological factors to
his Facebook followers
and asking for their opinion of what might happen to
appears to always be the opposite of what he claims.
DiCocco says his YouTube channel is for "lovers of love." But
DiCocco regularly attacks other astrologers in abusive ways,
and is abusive to commenters who disagree with him on YouTube.
One blogger wrote that DiCocco is really about making
"astrology hate again."
One long-time astrologer has become so down hearted about
DiCocco's attacks and mockery -- presented on DiCocco's "love" YouTube
that he looks like he has aged and says he is retiring.
Though trying to build up a business by attacking other
DiCocco has been accused of foraging for other astrologers'
ideas and statements,
then presenting them as his own. This is mentioned in this blog. Julian Lee
has heard DiCocco taking phrases
and ideas that Lee presented in his reading to DiCocco,
presenting them as his
knowledge on the internet.
In the statement above DiCocco says "Astrologers know that the
quincunx is a lottt worse than a square."
One more bare assertion and fabrication. It would be hard to
find such a statement in astrological
literature. What he's doing is trying to quote Julian Lee
from his reading,
not anything generally agreed by astrologers. Then he makes another
original assertion about Mercury-Quincunx-Neptune,
but does not tell us who called it "the
ultimate lying aspect"
or where this is written. DiCocco pulls statements that have
no basis out of his ass.
Recently DiCocco appears to have copycatted other astrologers to make a
about the French election. After
two other astrologers predicted Marine Le Penn would
win, DiCocco mocked and abused them.
A week later, with round #1 a few days away and Le Pen polling high,
DiCocco shamelessly jumped on the bandwagon and also predicted
a Le Pen win.
This copycatting is even apparent in his failed "attack on American
YouTube commenters pointed out that another YouTube astrologer made a
prior to his; he was purloining her stuff. At that time
DiCocco acknowledged it in posts
(since deleted) where he groused that another astrologer might have
So the "cosmos" had to copy another astrologer whose prediction ended
up a bust.
These posts on the "attack" thread, not yet deleted, refer to DiCocco's
copycat attempts at divination:
Another way DiCocco downgrades the Sacred Science is by using
it negatively and for warfare.
An experienced astrologer knows that no technical factor
even if one has actually studied a lot of cases. (Unlike DiCocco.)
And an ethical astrologer will not give a negative spin or impute
negatives that are unknown.
For example, Mars-square-Pluto may be associated with violence. But for
every 10 known
violent men who have Mars-square-Pluto, there will be 90 men who are
Further, an ethical astrologer will not deliberately give a negative
spin to chart factors.
But DiCocco uses astrology to do warfare against enemies. Not
only does he cast negative
aspersions on enemies "based on the chart" -- but he does it
without any actual basis in literature or lore.
He simply invents spurious astrological rationales as he
pleases, saying "this means that." Like someone
saying: "There are two
blue cars out on the street. That means the people in that house
are eating a pizza and are always late with their house payment." This
can be seen in DiCocco's associating "Jupiter in 5th"
with "sex offenders" --
a notion not seen in literature or lore and his own creation.
(In the literature and in life the opposite is more the
case. Jupiter-5 tends to give a moral and religious tempering
of sexuality, makes him/her a benefactor to children, makes it more
likely he/she has children,
and is one inclined to teach them morality and religion, etc.)
DiCocco simply invents what he wants to say, for warfare or damaging
This is a very negative use of astrology.
DiCocco keeps saying that he has a long waiting list for readings.
But when asked
about a reading lately, he said he could do it right now.
Recently somebody suggested to DiCocco that he set up a "GoFundMe"
DiCocco said this was a great idea because it would allow him
to pursue his
An astrologer with a waiting list will have a good income.
Within just a few months of starting doing "readings" DiCocco got a
negative review on RipOffReport.com. The customer stated that
immediately began trying to sell them a more expensive "reading"
for getting moved up in his long "waiting list."
DiCocco has "clients" gushing about their "reading" but their
reviews read like radio ads.
They say things like "Contact GianPaolo!" and often use the same terms
They often use language DiCocco likes to use, such as "on point."
Most of these transparently shill accounts have no history or personal
identity and may be
cases of DiCocco praising himself. Or a recent cipher account asking "Do you sell tee shirts?"
(Hoping to stoke his "MAGA" T-Shirts and mugs business?)
Some of the gushing posts come from a digital marketer.
DiCocco spouts a plethora of astrological terms to justify
but he seldom if ever cites other chart examples to back up his
where a given astrological factor produced "this result" or "that
He simply expects his audience to be awed and impressed by the fact
that he is using strange astrological terms.
Usually his audience doesn't mind if his prediction doesn't come true.
They like his confidence and interesting terms. 24.
DiCocco makes assertions about charts based on his mere
without supporting evidence from books or other cases. For example, he
loves to point to
Ingress Charts (Aries Ingress, etc.) yet doesn't present other examples
where such charts worked
to predict in similar situations. He might point to the Arabic "Part Of Fortune,"
no indication he has made a study of the Part Of Fortune as
a reliable predictive device by pointing to cases. (Why not use the
Arabic "Part of
Misconduct By Women"? Or the "Part of Slaves"?)
He uses a broad mish-mash of astrological ideas he
has read in books, just throwing terms around to
impress the gullible. Nothing he has actually tested. That
is, rather than basing his statements on his own experience with a
given factor, or even cases in literature, he uses
astrology like a malicious-psychic-with-an-agenda. But he is
not a psychic.
appears to make predictions
based on his personal political desire. After telling his audience what
"the astrology says" should happen, he
may say a thing should be done "to fulfill the astrology." In
world events, he typically predicts the outcome that would
be most favorable to Israel. Is DiCocco really a political operative?
Was his attempt to create credibility with
the Trump prediction for purposes of functioning as political
psy-operative and influencer of the public on behalf of Israel?
When DiCocco got a reading from Locational Astrologer Julian Lee in
2013 he apparently
did not even know his own natal positions.
Lee had the wrong birth year and named
incorrect positions throughout the reading
without a peep from DiCocco. Then DiCocco happily moved to California
based on this reading.
Lee stated that the corrected chart for California looked even better,
improvement would have occurred in either northern or
and he continued to advocate that DiCocco move to California, doing
free follow-up readings with him. DiCocco
followed Lee's advice twice, moving to California twice.
DiCocco reported getting a good position there
after chronic unemployment, including "highest
salary I ever had."
DiCocco had a pleasant reaction to Lee's pleasant reading as he
got good results in Calif. (even fame and a new identity),
and even though Lee refunded DiCocco fully
on his demand,
DiCocco still attacks Lee's reading as "horrendous," openly intends to
damage Lee's reputation and income,
while he complains about
Lee's politics, which is probably his real motive.
He frequently posts Lee's
political opinions with scandalized outrage,
especially in any area that concerns Jews.
DiCocco has stated repeatedly that he liked Los
Angeles in 2013.
Yet during his reading with Lee, about Los Angeles he said: "It didn't feel right."
DiCocco states that he has been studying astrology for many years,
and that he knows all about "astrocartography."
So he would have moved to California more astrologically-educated than
But he blames his "bad roommates" and "legal problems" there on Lee.
DiCocco appears to be sue-happy, frequently talks about suing
or companies, or the government, and has had at least one restraining
order placed on him by an employer he was
planning to sue. He constantly threatens to sue Mr. Lee when Lee
started defending himself online.
DiCocco over time speaks more and more vaguely when it comes to
often preferring to just ask questions like 'Will it happen?' or 'Could
Few of DiCocco's fans ever ask if his opinion is valid based on
or other chart examples. They are people with a strong political
orientation who are also
interested in astrology and enjoy seeing their political
views validated with occultism.
DiCocco was recently fired from another job
for being unpleasant and obnoxious.
Due to his continual attacks on the character and competence of other
DiCocco has been banned from advertising (to sell readings)
in the prestigious Mountain
Astrologer magazine. As he fumed about it, sue-happy as
he threatened the magazine with a lawsuit, as usual hoping to
become wealthy by litigation and legal robbery.
He crows: "I
have a good chance of actually owning the magazine myself."
DiCocco states repeatedly that he lives in "Los Angeles."
This is probably because he wants to make money giving astrological
readings and thinks
it's more impressive to be a "Los Angeles astrologer."
He dismisses this confusion saying: "I live in Los
Angeles, plain and simple."
But it's not so plain and simple as most address
databases place him in El Cerrito (Bay Area)
while his trademark application states he lives in
A private investigator on the east
