How To Become an Astrologer: Part 1
Some random pointers that deliver big time. More to follow as they occur to me.
WHO DOESN’T WANT to become an astrologer nowadays?
Yesterday the gal that was ringing up my groceries at the market told me she was taking an online course in astrology.
And then, we swapped some planetary markers between our charts. The young guy bagging the food nodded his head as if he, too, had a Venus in Gemini and knew what we were laughing about.
So, here are some key pointers if you’re ready to hunker into your astro-odyssey.
1. The central point concerns ‘why’ not ‘how.’ If you understand the ‘why,’ it will be easier to land on the ‘how.’
2. There’s a mysterious serendipity at work with becoming an astrologer, and it relates to that old saying, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”
And I’d also add, “When the student is ready, the teacher disappears.”
However, your first link with astrology might show up in an unlikely, synchronic way. Perhaps your mom’s friend is an astrologer, or you discover a book on astrology that someone left on a seat on a bus.
Let’s look at the ‘why.’
3. So the ‘why’ relates to your relationship to nature.
In the beginning, was nature. Nature has a concealed agenda we can only dimly know, and astrology is an imaginative construction that helps us to align with nature. And perhaps, maybe, possibly, receive clues as to nature’s agenda.
If you have a poor relationship with nature, you will be a bad astrologer. When I say relationship, I mean you’d need to have a sense of awe about nature and nature’s mysteries. Both its beauty and terror. Without those two qualities or ‘responses,’ astrology will reject you.
