Aspiring professional astrologers - read this!

To anyone seriously considering practicing astrology as a profession, even if only part-time, this book is essential reading. It is another example of the exceptional and inspired writing of Stephen Arroyo, who covers a very broad range of often neglected issues here. Many of them will be familiar to anyone who has practiced, or attempted to practice, astrology for a number of years, but for those starting out, the observations, insights and suggestions will be tremendously supportive.

Arroyo uses many excellent quotes from a vast range of sources to discuss astrology and its position in the modern world. Is it a science, a language, or a healing tool? What can it show you? Can it inspire you? Can it help you understand what other human beings and you yourself are going through in this life? What are the skills and qualifications necessary to be a good astrologer? How much should you charge? What kind of one to one connection can we make with other people? Do we have the necessary listening and communicating skills?

Since most of this book was written, I would suggest that in some ways things have got better for anyone attempting to practice intelligent and genuinely consciousness-raising astrology. Most obviously, an increasing percentage of Western society are now aware that real astrology is not about newspaper horoscopes. On the other hand, some changes in society are mixed blessings. As discussed in chapter 7, widespread use of computers by astrologers has cut out lots of tedious calculations, but the valuable period spent pondering the birth chart may be lost, thus possibly lowering the quality of interpretation. Similarly, although not anti-technology, Arroyo observes "there is a general degradation of standards in virtually every field that is widely promoted on the internet".

Overall, an absolute must if you are considering professional involvement.
