How To Become A Good Astrologer

Many people think astrology is a techniques and science that do not require any kind of discipline. This notion will never allow them to understand astrology in a deeper sense.

If one wants to become a good astrologer following niyama should be followed.

• Thank the guru who taught you this science. If you have learnt from books then offer thanks to people who wrote the book. Basically the planet guru will also get activated.

• Secondly chant navagraha slokam every day, do pooja, light lamp in the temple.

• Once in a month offer abhisekam for the navagraha.

• Go to temple and do circumbulation of navagrahas 9 times.

• Do speak ill of others. this will reduce the vak siddie.

• Pray for the welfare of the clients to be successful, happy and peaceful.

• Pray for astrology as a science to be successful

• Pray for astrologers to be successful.

• When you do the reading invoke the navagraha and thank the rishis. This will help you to read the horoscope from the correct angle.


§ Cut the cords from chakra

§ Ground the energy.

§ Thank god and ask for sorry any mistakes you have done.

§ Pull back the aura.

§ Mentally release all clients who have come for the reading.

§ Once a week have salt water bath or sea bath. You can also put sambarani in the room.

The trick in astrology is to see from the correct angle from which the horoscope is working. That is why people who do worship of any deity are for more successful than ordinary people. These kinds of prayers will clear the third eye clogging which will help to have peaceful mind plus clarity in thinking. Many astrologers feel tired irritated with few readings because of the pranic debris which get collected in the third eye.

Understanding The Role Of The Astrologer

Many people believe that astrology horoscopes can help them navigate the way to their true destiny. If this is true, then astrologists are their tour guides. An astrologer is believed to be able to see the future by reading the stars and planets. In this article, we'll uncover how the skies are read to determine your future.

Astrology is far more complicated than people realize. Using birth dates and times, astrologers consult the stars, planets, The Zodiac and houses to determine a course of action for their clients. They can also help an individual better understand their personality.

The person then has to choose whether or not to act on the reading. In the United States, certification is not required for an astrologer to offer his or her services, however, there are various examinations offered by private organizations such as the American Federation of Astrologers and the National Council for Geocosmic Research.

Astrology can have a significant impact on its believers. Even the rich and famous have been known to seek out astrology readings. Shirley Temple Black and Princess Diana spoke often about their beliefs.

President Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan have freely admitted to consulting astrologists while in the White House. A good reading can help an individual select the optimum time to start a business, get married, have a baby or change careers.

Choosing a seer to give you a reading may be like picking a star out of the sky. There are many different methods of divination, so it may come down to a matter of personality and what areas you are most interested in. There are financial, psychological, Jungian and Karmic astrologers, just to name a few.

Knowing what you're looking for is key to a good reading, just don't expect them to predict your future or the outcome of your decisions. They simply suggest the options an individual can pursue to find happiness. Clearly, it's best to know exactly what you want before seeking a reading.

Even those who don't believe that the stars have an impact on our everyday lives must admit that astrologers can be eerily accurate. However, it's important to remember that most do not claim to be able to predict your future. They are simply gathering information provided by the details of your birth to help you map out your life.

For example, if your love life is troubled, an astrologer can help you determine what particular qualities you should be looking for in a mate. Choosing to follow the advice is up you. Charting your own life may be as effective as charting the stars.

Plan to Move? Ask a Relocation Astrologer

More and more people are contacting me these days for an astrology reading because they want a new lease on life. That new lease might include a better place to live, start a home business, make money, or retire.

Sometimes they're just fed up with the area where they live, the people they work or associate with, themselves for staying there too long, the quality of life or lack thereof, and they want out of Dodge NOW.

Astrology is one perspective on finding your best city, location, or place here or overseas. It's not the only one. I want to point that out. Checking your daily horoscope for entertainment is one thing, making a major life change - that's another story.

This article is from notes taken just recently from a conversation between relocation astrologer Cait Benten - that's me - and my friend Christine Troward.

Cait, what can people expect from a relocation astrology reading?

When you contact me, I know you want to find your best city or location in which to work, have a successful career, perhaps start a home based business, raise your family in safety, or retire and so one of the first questions I'm usually asked is, "What is relocation astrology? What is it you do?"

What information do you need to do a relocation astrology reading?

Relocation astrology begins with your birth chart - what we astrologers call your natal chart. Where were you born? What was the EXACT time of your birth. Check your birth certificate. I spend long hours moving your birth chart to find what appears to be your best places in the world to live. It's a long, exacting, and tedious process, and it takes many hours to find the best places that are a match to your natal chart.

What about those inexpensive computer programs? What are their limitations?

A computer program isn't going to find what I'm looking for when I work on your astrology chart. There are too many variables and computer programs aren't intuitive. This is why I interview you and ask what you're looking for in your life, all this happens before I begin your astrology reading which I record and send to you. You listen, then we follow that up with a session where you ask me all your questions.

As I understand it, your astrology readings don't tell people they have to move to a certain place to be successful.

I'll tell you up front that even your most favorable location will present its own unique set of challenges. Oh that life were perfect! Before you visit or move to a certain place, I'll encourage you to count the costs.

Relocation astrology is not about packing up and moving merely because I tell you "This appears to be your most favorable location." I'll encourage you to COUNT THE COSTS before you move. Are you ready for what will be a major life change? Each move I've ever made has required a settling in and adjustment period and I'm sure this will also be true for you.

Moving requires a lot of planning and thought before packing your things and going somewhere, doesn't it? Moving becomes even more complicated if you're moving overseas, although more and more Americans are retiring overseas.

You've moved now! Getting settled into your new area is only the first phase of many new things to deal with including a decision that may include purchasing a home, registering your vehicles, finding where schools are located, and it's so much easier if, when you move, you already have a job lined up, unless you're retired. If retired, how much are you going to miss seeing your children or grandchildren? Some handle this issue better than others.

Do you use Astrocartography or Vedic Relocation astrology in your work? I notice lots of people like to have their Astrocartography chart done.

I know both systems but over the years I've incorporated the best techniques I've come across. I rely on my intuition and higher wisdom though when looking at a difficult chart. That's the only way to break through what seems like insurmountable obstacle in a person's astrology reading.

Do you ever get the sense people want you to make the decision about what they do for them?

I won't do that and neither will any other reputable relocation astrologer. Check my disclaimer page at and you'll see where I'm honest in telling you that "WHEREVER we move our EMOTIONAL SELVES travel with us." Some people, more than others, will need medical, financial, and emotional counseling and I urge you to use these professional resources if your life situation requires such assistance.

The other day a woman said to me, "I want you to send us to a place where my husband doesn't do drugs any more." I pleasantly but firmly had to tell her "Your husband makes his own choices in life. I refuse to be responsible for whether your marriage does or does not work."

As a relocation astrologer I'll tell you that our lives, no matter where we live, become what we determine to make of them. The wonderfulness of an area is dependent on you and how you treat others as much as how they treat you. Wherever you go, there you are.

A new location, however, may provide you with a new lease on life. Maybe it is time, after all these years, to get out of Dodge City and find a place you appreciate and where you are appreciated.

Do you find that some people are set in their ways and resist any suggestions, which is what they are, suggestions only, that you see as a good location to in their chart.

When you call me for a relocation astrology session I'll use everything I know to help you find your best place or city. I've had a handful of clients who, after I searched and searched for days finding a match for them based on the movement of their natal or birth chart would say, "I don't like that place." "My children won't like it." My husband says the people in Tucson aren't friendly." I've heard people make judgments about places they've never been to, a case of being too opinionated about areas they know nothing about.

It's odd to hear a relocation astrologer admit this but there have been a handful of people I've done astrology charts for and there is NO one best place for them to live and I've told them that. Maybe there's a second or third best place where they would have a very good life, so just know I'll be honest with you about my findings.

If I tell you Santa Barbara looks favorable based on your natal or birth chart and you say, "Not Santa Barbara," or "Oh no, not Austin, Texas," then, after I've pointed out all your best geographical areas I'll say "Use your intuition then. There are no other places I know to send you."

Why do you think relocation astrology is a valuable tool, even though you've told me on other occasions that it is only one of many tools that might be helpful to a person looking for that next place to call home?

Even though I'm a little more expensive than some other astrologers, I've been unbelievably busy since starting Astro-Earth-Relocation five years ago, so I don't solicit or advertise for clients any more.

Reputation is everything?

It helps, but you only build a reputation by doing great work for your clients. Most of my business is now word-of-mouth recommendations from former clients.

Do you tell people they must move to find success or love, make money, or be happy?

No. Nor do I tell them they have to make this move by such and such date. I do tell my clients to ask themselves, "What would happen if you were happy now and didn't move at all? Would that disappoint you?" Some people are restless for change. That's not a good reason move. Happiness is an inside job; you have to provide your own inner cabin pressure no matter where you live.

I'll close my article about relocation astrology, which I do hope you're curious enough to try, just to experience this kind of unique astrology reading, with a quote from my friend James Clayton Napier uses to open his marvelous article Business & Career: Know Your Ruling Star which you can read on the web:

"Know your Ruling Star. One man [or woman] is better received by one nation than another, or is one welcome by one city than another. He finds more luck in one office or position than in another, and all though his qualifications are equal or even identical. Let each man know his luck as well as his talents. Follow your guiding star and help it without mistaking any other for it. Know how to transplant yourself. There are nations with whom one must cross their borders to make one's value felt."

- Balthasar Gracian, (Spain, 1600's)

Does Anyone Except the Astrologer Ever Really Profit from having an Astrological Reading?

Most of us have heard about astrology and astrological readings. Some have experienced having one or more done. But "What's it all about, Alfie?"

We can talk to people who don't mow the lawn without consulting their astrologer first and to those at the other end of the spectrum who firmly declare that they do not believe in astrology. What lies in between?

There is no doubt that the stars and other heavenly bodies were in a certain configuration at the exact moment we were born. It was certainly our "stamp" in creation but how could that affect our lives either minimally or dramatically? Well, some see astrology as a predictable climate of possibilities and probabilities. To those who do, it makes no difference if you believe in it or not. They will tell you that it's like saying you don't believe in gravity as you step out a window of a twenty-second story building. So what? The inevitable does not care about your beliefs or lack thereof.

For those who tread the middle of the road and seek astrological readings only occasionally, for either entertainment or a chance of a clearer look at whys of life, selecting an astrologer can be quite an adventure. They come in all shapes and sizes. That's because the nature of their work is interpretative. There are very few frames of reference, if any, that can't be adapted to an astrological chart...all modes of religion and spirituality, all sides of psychology...and every aspect of materialism. The charts are not often done by hand any more, which was once a time-consuming and expensive process. These days they pop readily out of a well-educated computer. Then the fun begins.

You may go to your reading with some specific questions about the past present and/or future or you may just want your natal (birth) chart read. Many people ask for a reading about the coming year, get an overview of what's ahead in the hopes of dealing with it wisely and well.

It's also possible to take a course or courses in astrology in a classroom or online for the purpose of either understanding your own chart better or of interpreting charts for others. Again, whoever prepares and presents the class will put their spin on interpretation, so you need to seriously investigate the work of your proposed teacher.

For many people, reading the charts of the rich and famous is a real trip, since we all know, after the fact, the bends and turns in their chosen paths in life. It can be fun to look up readings on your favorite scientist, movie star, evangelist or explorer...but remember that one astrologer's interpretation can differ from another's even though they were armed with the same basic data. It can be even more entertaining to obtain several readings on the natal chart on your particular hero or nemesis for comparison of diverse opinions.

Certainly not everyone needs to get into this subject...much less have even one astrological reading. Life goes on, whether it is interpreted and predicted or just happens without questioning it's capricious twists and turns. What is needed is the willingness to not form an opinion about astrology if we don't want to investigate "not know what we don't know". A good rule, for that matter, whatever the subject.
