Ahhh Yes! Thats it. My 7th Hse is Scorpio - Sun , Nep & Mercury are there, and all squared to varying degrees by my 4th hse Uranus.

Been feeling absolutely gutted to the core. Never saw it coming. I was always wary of my sister who is very manipulative, (who I mentioned above) but the worst is that I thought my brother was my friend, until recently when stabbed me in the back in a most painful way. Now I see it's reflected in these placements/aspects..

Astrology does not help you directly, and do not create opportunities for you. You will have to create your own opportunities. Astrology merely pointed out: "Look stupid, here's a chance!". Astrology will not help you get a job, if there are no jobs and you do not know what to do, unless you are a professional astrologer or an astrology site webmaster, of course astrology will not help you to have a good relationship, but it will help you understand your relationship. Astrology will not help you win the lottery, but instead to explain to you why you are not (but who really is a bummer, maybe I should change it ...).

Use astrology as help to better yourself and try to understand others.

Don't try to convince a Capricorn the legitimacy of Astrology unless they are already open to it...

Do not take what you read in a book or has been taught to you in a course as the word of God.
Always try and verify.
One shall be open to new ideas and to the possibility that an appealing could idea simply not work.

Re: Top 10 Don'ts in Astrology
 
I learned a few things from other astrologers that I put in my do/don't bucket:

1) Ask if it's ok to touch upon certain subjects like family/childhood. Although I've had nobody say no yet, I was forcefully asked about mine and didn't enjoy how it felt. I make sure to be gentle and ask permission, as some people love to analyze their past and some do not. (I actually do, but this one person was making these very definite assumptions about my childhood that were a bit horrifying).

2) Listen when the other person gives feedback. Like, really listen. I find giving readings to people is a just like therapy. This isn't about how much you, the astrologer, knows.

3) You don't always have to have an answer for everything right away. Sometimes a question is asked, and you might feel like you have to answer it on the spot. That often paralyzes you and you can't see the puzzle pieces right in front of you. I often table questions that go off-subject and when I come back to them later, I have very fresh and accurate answers because I took the pressure off.

That doesn't apply to us but to people who are ignorant about astrology: "your Solar Sign doesn't mean you are that way". You personality development depends on your childhood upbringing and how you deal with challenges in life. Also in astrological way it depends on planetary aspects and planetary house positions.

Don't pity the skeptics who are unwilling or unable to "believe" Astrology has anything to offer. We all have our strengths and weaknesses.

Do see the planets before the signs, and the signs as each planets individual AC sign, as it's aesthetic. What ever combination of planets comes up at the end and how those planets affect your personality will alter the way you appear as a sign.

Astrology is just prediction and if implemented in proper way will work for you. So you should consult with a specialist astrologer before implementing any astrological remedies and should follow rules and regulations in well manner to get best results.

:lol: Reminds me of myself.

I met a girl who was trying to always think in terms of astrological signs, and shaped her thinking according to what was expected of a certain one based on their date of birth. Don't be that person who always checks the date of everything and generates a chart for it, and makes random assumptions based more on preconceived ideas than actual possibility... unless you really just want to train in predictive astrology.

Remain "porous".

(Although I'd certainly be amused and fancy to be told "oh you have such a strong chart, could I possibly get to know it a bit better?" :whistling::lol:)

Astrology works but you need to have a very sharp eye to interpret all the degrees, planets, etc.

Donít get too obsessed with your horoscope!

When something significant is going on in my life, instead of living in the moment itís very easy for me to look too ahead because I subconsciously feel the need to gain full control over the situation. Aim to be more present and stick to reading what youíre supposed to read that day.

Don't inject your personal bias into astrology.

I see people do that, and it's the poorest astrology I can ever think of. If I'm going to read someone's chart, I always put aside my personal biases and read it with complete purity. I immerse myself in it to the point where I forget that I even have my own preferences. Imo, I believe that Linda Goodman was a biased (and not a particularly accurate) astrologer, and that can really damage a person's self esteem. For instance, I could tell from her writing that she had something against Leos to the point where, as a 14-year-old reading it, it caused me to hate my own sign for years and only just recently have I started liking being a Leo again. If I were to be introduced to her works now I'd just have rolled my eyes and said "next!".
