Will you do my horoscope?

In a word – no! Let me explain why.

I’ve been studying astrology on and off since 1992 when Saturn crossed my ascendant. When I first started, I thought I’d never get my head around the various symbols and meanings, let alone put them together into a coherent picture of a person. But I persisted, and over time, some of it sank in.

The keyword here is: some!

I chose not to become a professional astrologer because I was too busy doing other things and didn’t have the time to dedicate the serious work and effort involved. It takes a long time to become a good astrologer – good enough to expect payment for your work – and I didn’t have that kind of space in my life.

And these days I don’t have enough space in my head either! I probably could’ve done it 15 years ago, but my brain is a sieve, right now, and I can’t remember enough detail to do readings. The posts on this blog may be packed with information and (hopefully) insight, but writing is one thing – consultations are another.

So I’m sorry to disappoint, but I don’t do chart readings and there are no exceptions. Offering to pay me won’t make any difference! Besides, there are real astrologers out there who can serve you better.

If you would like a horoscope reading, there are lots of astrologers and services to choose from. Some are excellent, some are good, and some are frankly charlatans. To avoid disappointment and make sure you don’t waste your hard-earned cash, please shop around and get testimonials.

In the end, your best bet is to become your own astrologer – it’s really not that hard! – although it is a lifetime’s study. These days you don’t even need to do the horrible maths! You can create and download a free horoscope on any of these sites:

Astrodienst: simple and detailed, lots of options, great looking charts with access to a wealth of analysis and features on astrology. Start here!

Astrolabe: simple to use, gives you a mini analysis, but not many options for house settings, transits, etc.

Café Astrology: simple to use, gives a basic analysis, but the chart itself is difficult to read. You do get all the details in a nice table which you can use to research a deeper analysis yourself.

Astrotheme: easy to use, options for different house systems and other chart details, as well as easy options for sharing or printing. But I find these charts very hard to read – frankly, they’re a mess…
