Re: Astrology for pay, how to do it

the first not-written rule, is that it is unconvenient to judge your own chart or to judge the chart of your blood-related or affection-related persons.
It is no rule de facto obviously: but has its sense.

Re: Astrology for pay, how to do it

"if you want to make money - you have to spend money"

number one rule in advertising and marketiing.

knowing your market, demographic is important - diversifying too.

consider spending some time, resources in 'new accounts' - such as small business endeavors of others - people who are looking for advancement in their careers, education, business, marriage, planning weddings, etc, based on event timiing.

mundane and event astrology is under-utilized and if you know what 'something looks like' when you see the chart - you can tell them yeah or nay and chances are, unlike heart-emotion-astrology - they will consider you the advisor that has no emotional linkage to the question or answer.

think of building contractors - they are asked if a deal for development is good or bad - based on a variety of factors - and they have no interest usually in the emotion attached to the project. they spend their money wisely for the sole purpose of creating revenue - hence - they are likely to spend their money on things that will make them money.

i imagine it helps if you have business acumen to spot the subtleties of what the business is seeking to do - but it's so in-line with astrology - 'go this way' 'don't go that way' - that it shouldn't be a difficul translatable skill.

you got the herbs and the healing and now the astrology -

sounds like you have a solid plan.

Another question: what would those of you who read charts for others irl recommend in the way of software for drawing and storing charts? Is there a good cloud service for that? Since most of the computer stuff I do is online, my main computer right now is a Chromebook, so cloud service is best.

I suppose I could set up a separate Astrodienst account and use it for clients, if nothing else. If there's something out there that shows planetary stations as well as retrogrades in a natal chart, that would be great.

And does anyone have recommendations for a good ephemeris, online or in print?

For, the search for "exact knowledge" of astrology, is astrologers own undoing, not a presumed zenith to which to aspire. About ethics: not-written rules have their importance. You will understand them as your way goes on: hardly they are integrated in the beginning. At the same time, they are eluded just from the ones who are entirely lacking in commonsense.

If your posts are meant for me, please read my latest question. What I'm asking now is a logistical question. I'm not asking for detailed instructions on how to build a business, because that's not what I'm doing at this time. I'm also not asking about dealing with clients. I'm seeking software recommendations just to make my work go smoother.

To be able to do this work, I have to have a system in place for keeping client charts and readings organized, and I have to have it set up before I start. If I don't do that first, I'll be way too disorganized, and it will be way too difficult for me to get organized later. So "just get started" isn't an appropriate answer to my question, either. I can't get started without working out these details first.

I also need ready access to a good ephemeris, because there might be times when I need to look information up. For example, my client knows the approximate time of day they were born but not the specific clock time, and they were born on a day when the moon changed signs. What time did the moon change signs? If they know they were born in the evening and the ephemeris shows that the moon changed signs around 11 am in their time zone, we know their moon sign. Without that information, we don't.

Maybe not everyone works this way, but for me, it's absolutely necessary to have all the logistical details in place before I start.

Re: Astrology for pay, how to do it

Okay, editing again here because the link is wonky. https://astroapp.com/ is good. You may need to use IE to run it, though.

The Swiss ephemeris is available in PDF at astro.com and probably other places - it's public domain. Bookmark timeanddate.com as well, as that's good on keeping up with time zone changes.

Re: Astrology for pay, how to do it

Oso -

You have it all sussed out, so I won't bother to re-read any post. "Astrology for pay. How to do it" was what I read and what I offered up.

You have responded this way several times to me, dismissing sincere offerings and suggesting I 'read further' into your labryinth.

Good luck with that.

I'm sorry you feel dismissed. That wasn't my intention.

Please be aware, though, that it really annoys me when people post in my threads without reading more than the title and/or the first post. Later posts usually take the thread in another direction, and the original question isn't always relevant anymore by the time you post. To know if your answer is appropriate, you need to read the whole thread before you respond--or, if you've posted in the thread before, at least read all of the posts after your last one. I always do that when I post in other people's threads, and I expect the same courtesy from others. Is that really too much to ask?

Re: Astrology for pay, how to do it

FYI....while the title of the books I suggested, at least the Blaschke one, seems like how to build a business, Blaschke covers all aspects of it from how and when to charge and how much and all those things, possible software to buy, etc. Blaschke is dead now, but he had to work his tail off to do it, and he wanted everyone who was interested to know every in and out of doing it.

The best thing about Robert Blaschke was that he really wasn't into astrology for profit, but for helping others and figuring out the world through planetary movements and potentials.

He was such a helpful soul. Never asked, only gave.

Not sure if he made money - but he sure did put a heart-spin onto the astrology of helping - using ancients, moderns, vedic and other knowledge.

Sometimes I wonder if their should be financial profit in astrology or human development. Continuization of connected spirit and all.

Blaschke never sold snake oil, that's one thing for sure. He probably died from other's, though.

When I first met him, first reading, in Lake Oswego Oregon in 1994 - a very posh community - he was into a scad of different healing methods, even before his own cancer -

He used his hubrus to help others - never leading them astray in his own plights.

A great recommendation, Samantha -

That's your choice, astrology is not regulated
so anyone may charge for what is loosely termed as 'astrology'

that is why astrology has little credence in the public mind
and is often dismissed as "fairground psychics reading"

I'll sell myself short.
On our forum we 'learn astrology'
not in any regulated way
but by reading posts at random
from multiple individuals
and then practicing our chart reading skills
but
often there is no feedback from the OP

and so there is no way of validating astrological theories/opinions
resulting in an haphazard, incoherent way to learn
that is often contentious due to members presenting with multiple perspectives


you have mentioned haveing a feeling of having to "do it all for free with no return"

and yet
you do not have to read charts at all
if you do not want to
just because your classmates are simply understandably keen to discuss astrology
and you seem more knowledgeable than they
and so they gravitate towards you
does not mean you have a duty to read their charts


IF

it's a matter of your 'not wanting to' read their charts
then give your classmates the information that our online forum is where you learned/are learning astrology
and advise your classmates that multiple members of our forum daily
from choice, are "doing it all for free with no return"

THEN
IF
any of your classmates are interested
to learn some astrology for themselves the same way you have learned astrology
without having to depend on you for the readings that you clearly feel are onerous

your classmates would then have the choice to learn independently
by having access to the same wider pool of information that you have

and would then possibly even themselves at some stage
be sufficiently motivated to qualify as astrologers via NCGR certification or similar
and so on ad infinitum

Re: Astrology for pay, how to do it

As long as you are open to feedback from the ones you do the readings for, I think you could start charging for it. As a newbie I wouldn't mind getting a reading from someone less experienced. Of course I'd expect a difference in pricing between someone who has been around for decades and someone who just entered the field, but you already know that Sometimes I may actually prefer someone who isn't too professional - it becomes more familiar.

Re: Astrology for pay, how to do it

I started my practice about a year ago. It's still growing, but I don't believe in certs. Why? Since being a good astrologer imho is about respect, empathy, connection, and nobody needs to sit in a classroom to understand a natal chart, what each sign, house, or aspect means, or to make charts that resonate with people.

It's like everything else, practice, practice, practice. This imho (though others will and are free to disagree) is enough to be competent.

Note astrology has not been academic in history, and even with things requiring formal education since it's been a learned and studied art. Doctors, teachers, etc. get certified, but then they aren't competent because of that. certs are pieces of paper, and I would not dismiss a reading if it made good sense if the astrologer learnt his or her competence.

I completely agree. I only looked at certification because someone mentioned that possibility.

Having done an apprenticeship with a particular well known astrologer or people they've mentored might raise my credibility, though, because people who know a little about the astrology field will conflate who you've studied with, with the kind of astrology you do. If someone is telling clients, for instance, that they did an apprenticeship with Steven Forrest, I know they're an evolutionary astrologer, and it's probably a good match if I'm seeking astrological advice from them.

It's the same way in my other field, herbalism: certifications exist, but no uniform standards, and it's not an academic field, not taught in universities. Herbalists learn the trade through a patchwork of apprenticeships and self study and maybe a course here and there. But there are some big names in the field, and if you have studied or apprenticed with any of them, that adds to your credibility.

I've largely been self-taught, and been inspired by top astrologers on Youtube, plus practiced observing charts. I find many top astrologers were initially self-taught, and later got certification. I'm not opposed to it, but I don't think it's absolutely necessary. If a person has a good track record and reputation, a piece of paper won't change that.

Re: Astrology for pay, how to do it

And I have a follow up! My idea of moving forward with doing readings for pay did not happen quickly at all. I did offer it up, both to my classmates and through the local timebank, but got no bites. I kept my focus on herbalism and day jobs and studied astrology more seriously along the way.

I now have a paying client! Just yesterday, an acquaintance mentioned that she wanted to get her chart read, and the first thing out of my mouth was, "I'm an astrologer. I can do that for you."

I'm about to have a month or so of down time. Both my current job and my herbalism school take seasonal breaks in December and January. I think I'll use that time to start promoting myself as an astrologer. Get myself a website and some business cards, look professional.

Now I need a name for my practice. I could just call it My Name, Astrologer, but I want something with more cachet. I know a few individuals--astrologers and otherwise--who've started their own businesses and given them names that fit very, very well with who the business owner is. If I know anything about their natal chart, the name is always especially suited to some key factor in their chart (and in most cases, they picked it without knowing that). And, if I have a website, a good name should help me get hits.

Anyone have any ideas for a name? Just brainstorming will help me think of one, whether or not it ends up being what someone here suggests. I don't want it to be something strictly about astrology, though, because I 'll probably want to use the same name and website to promote myself as an herbalist when I'm ready to start doing that.

I've attached my chart, in case anyone finds that useful.

For astrological factors, I was thinking more along the lines of what the chart as a whole shows. Maybe house placement more than sign placement. One of the examples I was thinking of, of business owners I know whose business name fits their chart, is someone with the sun in Leo in the twelfth house. Her business name is clearly twelfth house related (not in the sense of undoing, but think ancestors-elders-place of healing, that kind of thing).

For me, the eighth house is the big power place, and since that's where I'm coming from and that's where the services I want to give are coming from, that may be my gold mine for a name. Not, of course, Death-Taxes-Occult-Sex-Horrible Losses. I'm thinking deeper than that. But I don't know what it would be.

I'm also open to ideas I haven't thought of. Keep them coming!
