Just like doctors make the worst patients, the same can be said about astrologers. Well maybe not everyone, but in my case it’s true. I was a professional astrologer for a number of years, but it just became too overwhelming. I no longer had a life of my own; I was doing natal and karmic charts 24/7, or so it seemed. I had people calling me from England, Germany, Holland, and other neighboring countries.
I’m not talking horoscopes that you read in the daily newspaper here! I’m talking about astrological charts that go into specific details about a person’s entire life. When you start telling someone about their past, which of course they can verify, I believe many clients begin to feel you’re like their shrink and they can tell you anything! And they do! Well they would try to anyway, but I would stop them and tell them that they were here for me to tell them about their lives and not the other way around!
In any case, I no longer do charts except progressive charts for Patrick, my family and friends, and myself, but why I do my own chart is beyond me. I do it every year for the upcoming year and then put it away in a drawer and forget about it until the end of the year. I then take it out and look at the predictions I made and say, “Oh yeah,… and that happened,…. oh, I knew I should have been more careful during that time”,….etc. I prefer to live this way. I don’t want to have a piece of paper telling me how to live my life, but it’s good to know all the same, especially for important matters. Hmm,… is that a contradiction I just made?!
Maya Muses: Once again I go back to the question: Is most of our lives predestined, or do we have free will? I have seen way too many things foretold in an astrological chart for me not to believe in the former and to doubt the latter.
