Astrology gets a bad rap in certain communities because the intent of it is misunderstood, when used correctly, astrology will help you get to know self on a deeper level. A lot of people think astrologists can predict your future, that’s because they are confusing them with psychic mediums. While psychic mediums may use planetary aspects for guidance, these forms of mysticism are not the same.
You know what else doesn’t help the astrology community? The know it all astrologists who swear they can see the future while posting their “predictions”. When those predictions don’t come to past, do they apologize? No, they just keep feeding off the emotions of the blind sheep who aren’t paying close enough attention. These same astrologers charge you insane amounts of money for useless newsletters and webinars.
Don’t get me wrong, they are some good astrologists out there but don’t be deceived, some will nickel and dime you with upsells to keep their bottom line in the black. Remember they can read your chart and see a soft target a mile away. Since you are the architect of your future, you’re better off getting a generalization of your birth chart and doing the research yourself. If you are on a budget, I would not spend more than $75 for a birth chart reading. If you got money to spend, I would spend no more than $150. In other words, don’t spend your saving account on something when you can get it done for far less.
Understand the birth chart is a blue print of your existence and YOU are the architect of how it plays out. Be wary of ANY astrologist who says they know what your future holds with 100% accuracy. I speak from experience; they are lying their ass off.
Astrology is an ever-evolving subject so the learning will never stop. This purpose of this post is to share the basics.
