French graduate of the École Polytechnique and career soldier in the French Army who retired with the rank of Major of Artillery.
As an astrologer Choisnard was polemic rather than theoretical, seeking to demonstrate statistically the soundness of astrology and a protagonist of the statistical method. He tended to write in a controversial style; the author of 30 books. He was the founder
of the short-lived magazine "L'influence Astrale," 1913-1914; with no doubt the main influence of French astrology in the 20th century. His works deal with the main branches of astrological research, technical
and statistical, historical, epistemological. His books include "Influence astrales," 1901, 1913 and 1926, an essay on experimental astrology; "Langage astral," 1902, 1921, 1928, 1930, and a revised edition in 1940; and "La loi d'hérédité astrale," 1919. He influenced Michel
Gauquelin who worked on his hypothesis and gave them a new justification.
Choisnard died 2/09/1930, 11:55 PM, St. Geni de Saintange, France.
