Astrology is only as good as the astrologer. That’s right, you heard me: in fact, I’ll say it again. Astrology is only as good as the astrologer—and we vary. In philosophy; in training; in expertise; in empathy. Some of us know our stuff, but can’t talk; some are extraordinary counsellors, with only a smattering of astrological knowledge. Some of us write better than we speak. Some have extraordinary insights, but no ability to communicate them.
Some have impressive credentials; others are self-taught.
Some of us believe in free will. Some of us hint darkly at fate. Most of us mean well, most of the time; and almost any of us would be delighted to have YOU as a client.
So how do you KNOW? After all, you are entrusting your birth data to us to unlock your life’s secrets, and you are paying down your hard-earned shekels for the privilege: how do you find the right astrologer for YOU?
Trust your instincts. Think about why you want a reading, what you want to know, and how you expect to use that information.
Do some background reading. Ask around. Look at websites. Check with a local astrological society or school. Ask questions about the astrologer’s process BEFORE you book. (Did I say trust your instincts?) If you don’t like what you’re hearing, or feel comfortable talking with the person, choose someone else.
Your reading should sound like you: it is YOUR life map, after all. If you hear something that doesn’t make sense to you, or is just plain WRONG, speak up: most of us would rather be corrected if we’re on the wrong track. We can’t help you if we’re not on the same page.
So–a final word—astrologers are fallible. Very. (We’re human, too, you see.) Use your common sense in assessing anything we say.
Astrology WORKS. It’s a map of your life. But it’s only as good as the astrologer you choose.
