What information is a real astrological consultation based on?
I am waiting your replies

Alyssa, it all depends on the questions of the clients. Some just want to hear about their chart, others want to know about a specific sector (money, love, career, health) of their charts. Generally a consultation should help the person who comes to you in getting answers or solutions to their problems in life and also to know themselves.
Usually an astrological consultation starts by putting the client at ease, offering a cup of coffee, tea or a glass of water (that's what I do) and followed by a basic explanation of what astrology can or cannot do for you, what a chart signifies, what the houses represent and what the planets are doing there. A quick sort of overview so the client can more or less follow what you are talking about. At least that is what I always do.
Should there be no specific questions, then an explanation of the Ascendant, Sun and Moon are next, followed by the three other personal planets Mercury, Venus and Mars.
The astrologer should look for whatever "sticks out in that chart" and maybe ask the client if they have trouble in this or that area of their lives or that they could maybe expect problems in those areas during their lives. Obviously questions will arise and have to be answered accordingly. Personally I look at the psychological set-up of the person in front of me.
The consultation should last no longer than at the most 2 hours, but usually 1.5 will be good for the first time. Should the client want more specifics, another appointment should be arranged.
Never talk too much, always listen to what your client wants to tell you. Try to detect what is bothering them, try helping them out, calming them down, whatever is necessary under the circumstances. Keep a box of tissues ready!
Hope this is what you wanted to hear.
