Ten Rules For Astrologers
- Everything modifies everything else.
- Nothing is as good or as bad as you think it will be.
- Forecast conservatively-it’s better than looking like a complete fool when you’re half wrong.
- Study love, money and health issues. If you become a professional, 99 percent of your clients will want information on them. If you stay an amateur, it’s probably what you want to know. The rest is frosting.
- Don’t take your transits too much to heart. The word transit means ‘passing on by.’ The stations are the most reliable indicators.
- Continue to study. Pay attention to the old timers. They’re the ones who taught the astrologers that you think are so wonderful.
- Take astrology seriously. Don’t give away what you know too cheaply. It cost you plenty to learn it. Charge a fair price if you charge.
- Keep your mouth shut. Don’t talk about what your clients tell you and what is confidential information. Before long, nobody will tell you anything and you will stop learning.
- Listen. Half the time your clients just need somebody to talk to. Most of them will solve their own problems if they get a little moral support from you. They probably don’t need a forecast as much as the hand holding.
- Share what you know with others trying to learn. It keeps astrology vital into the future. It is your gift to the world.
These aren’t the only rules, just a few of the biggies.
