So what are the secrets of a great horoscope? What type of personality consistently hits the nail on its astro head? Few can truly link into “the gift” it takes to read a great horoscope; that astro job description does not fit all natures. For starters you need a compassionate personality: if you are impatient, and do not take to fools gladly, you will be too impatient to line up that horoscope for a challenging client. Basic counselling skills cannot be glossed over either. You will understand planetary movements, and have more than a grasp of astronomy. Above all, you will be a great communicator and have the confidence to drive a point home. You will be self-motivated, but remember if you are not prepared to study the stars with a precise attitude, no matter how intuitive you are as an astrologer, a horoscope will never come out quite right. You need to cultivate an open mind, and make your point with a non-judgmental attitude also.
So to be a good astrologer, consider the following: Sensitivity, without it you will never understand the depths of planetary complexities. Ethics, never push anybody to buy astro spells during a consultation for example. Correct predictions that are right at least 70 percent of the time. However, you are not God, so make sure your client knows that! An accommodating attitude helps a client forgive and forget their past, even see life from another perspective. Use simple modes of expression. Never try to impress with complex vocabulary–for example “Metonic Cycles”, a “Midnight Ephemeris”, or similar astro jargon. Avoid judgmental or boastful attitudes such as declaring you have read for famous show biz personalities. In other words, to draw up a fine horoscope for a client an astrologer needs to be passionate about the heavens, have an intuitive nature, and realize that a caring analysis of planetary placements could change a client’s life, even forever.
