Myths About Astrology: #1 – “Astrology is what you read in the newspapers”
The newspaper sun-sign columns are typically written to a required length: astrologers get paid so many dollars to write 60 words per sign. Try counting next time you look at one of these columns. It may be a little more or less. But day to day, it will be a similar length.
What can you say in 60 words? That’s not even half a tweet. And we know how intelligent a lot of tweets are.
And don’t get me started on those columns that aren’t even written by astrologers. Or those written by the junior admin who started 3 months ago.
So how intelligent do you expect sun-sign columns to be?
Actually, to write anything thought-provoking in 60 words, you probably have to be reasonably intelligent and aware of human nature to start with. So, perhaps they aren’t doing a bad job after all.
But you be the judge of whether the 60 words in that column actually is thought-provoking. Maybe it is. You’re in luck.
But is this ‘serious astrology’?
Nearly every astrologer, including the ones who write these columns, would say No – it’s really just the tip of the tip of the tip of the iceberg.
It is nothing more than saying ‘G’day, ‘owya gowin’?’ without the body language.
Which is why we go a step further.
Actually many steps further. In 3 ways: We do consultations or readings for clients. We offer courses that take you deeper, so you can do the readings yourself. And we prepare printed reports of between 18–45 pages long (depending on the report type). That’s a lot more than 60 words.
And yes, WHAT WE DO is serious astrology. (That doesn’t mean boring, by the way.)
But it’s designed to help you live your life. To get the most out of life. To help you answer some serious questions when you’re at a crossroads.
So, if you want something more than a mini dose of ‘astrology’, then get in touch with us.
