Dr. Walter Albert Koch (18 September 1895 – 25 February 1970)[1] was a German astrologer who founded the Koch House System in Astrology. He was born in Esslingen, Baden-Württemberg, Germany and died in Göppingen.

Like many German astrologers of those days he was imprisoned in the Dachau concentration camp (1941–45). In early 1960s he put forward the Koch House System. He also did research on the psychological and esoteric effects of colors and gems.

Koch House System[edit]

Also called the Birthplace House System. Tables for this system first appeared in 1971, in an English translation of the work of Walter Koch. In spite of the claims of priority and originality made for this method, it is but a simple modification of the Alchabitius System.
