  • What are some techniques I can learn from this book to use in my practice?

Those questions are just the beginning. Other topics covered:

From the Introduction:

“People find astrology, or it finds them, always serendipitously. Depending on their initial experiences of it, they’re either unimpressed or intrigued. If they’re unimpressed, they likely become one of the millions for whom astrology means no more than a newspaper sun sign column or a fortune cookie. If they’re impressed, they join the three-quarters of the world’s population who routinely consult it in one form or another.

Sooner or later, somebody asks, “Will you do my astrology?” If they add, “I’ll pay you,” a new professional astrologer is born. So it happens that after studying and reading for friends, then for paying clients; attending some lectures and astrology conventions; many students of astrology naturally consider becoming professionals – full- or part time. No degree, testing or license is required. No expensive equipment. No office is necessary: you can read in people’s homes, or your own. Perhaps you’ve been paid for readings but haven’t given up your regular job because you and / or dependents appreciate your steady paycheck, benefits, health insurance, food, shelter and clothing.

Still, additional income would be nice and your horoscope encourages self-employment. Business cards are the next step. Or are they?

The keyword is professional. Since there are virtually no state regulations overseeing astrologers, nor accredited schools in which to learn and practice it, standards of practice and ethics vary widely from astrologer to astrologer. Unlike selling real estate or Avon, astrologers don’t offer tangible products with money-back guarantees. (Neither do psychologists or physicians but that’s beside the point.)”
