The Art of Being a Professional Astrologer
It is far from an easy take to make a living as a professional astrologer, but it can certainly be done. Becoming a professional astrologer means going into business for yourself. You can’t expect to get hired by a company who needs your services, you’ll need to create your own database of clients.
The truth is that people don’t usually just choose to become an astrologer suddenly. The profession tends to do the calling. A potential astrologer has a passion for learning about and sharing the mysteries of the universe and to help others with their individual life needs.
It is essential to invest some time in top notch training while becoming an astrologer. You will find many reliable organizations out there that specialize in teaching aspiring astrologers all the ropes. Many conferences around the world can be accessed for in-depth information. Joining an astrology group that is local to you can provide you with the ongoing training and support that you need.
If you can’t find a local group, consider signing up for lessons on the Internet to supplement your education. Once you have a clear understanding of the different avenues of astrology, you will want to narrow in on a small focus to specialize in. Maybe you want to do something with finances, or you are interested in helping people with their psychological issues or love lives. There are lots of options!
There are hundreds of wonderful books on the subject of astrology to learn from. You can gain a deeper understanding of how to do things like interpret a chart correctly. You will want to stick with reading books by astrologers who practice the same styles and use the same tools that you want to use.
Buy a few books yourself and use your library card when possible to pick up different books as you need them. Once you have gained some education and experience in the art of astrology, it would be beneficial to you to start practicing on your friends and loved ones and ask for some feedback.
Don’t get defensive if something is said that you don’t like. Use the feedback to make you stronger and better at what you do. This feedback will help you to hone your skills before you start working with real clients so you don’t make the same mistakes when money is involved.
Working as a professional astrologer can be a fun and rewarding experience. For many, it feels good to helps others understand their own paths in life. Consulting with clients offers astrologers the opportunity to do everything from helping them through times of crisis to walking them through understanding the influences that are around them.
It is important to be patient with your craft as you learn and grow into your business. You may want to have several readings done yourself by multiple different astrologers so you can get an idea of the different options that are available to you. You’ll also gain some great examples to follow. Learn how to read your own chart, and use those messages to carve your astrology profession as you go along.
Overall, astrology is an invaluable tool that can help you to navigate your own way through life, and to help others (friends, loved ones, and strangers alike) do the same. But you will need to be armed with the right tools, support systems, and resources available in order to be successful in your readings, and to make the best out of your opportunities.
