How to Learn Astrology: Part II - Advanced
by Michael Erlewine

588 pages, 429 color illustrations

This second volume in the "How to Use Astrology" contains more advanced material and supplementary materials include full-phase aspects, in-depth cycle analysis, including the Saturn cycle, Saturn to the angles, large chart patterns. Also, how to set up an astrological business, perform astrological readings, and much more. Advanced views of the lunation cycle and the retrograde phenomenon are also covered. 588 pages, 429 illustrations.

“As the curator of a very large astrological library, I have a good idea of what students of astrology are looking for, and one thing that is needed is a collection of plenty of accurate diagrams and illustrations. The old saying that a picture is worth 1,000 words is especially true with astrology, and that is why I was interested in creating a course such as this one. No book publisher would consider allowing us to have almost one thousand color illustrations, which is why we chose the e-book format.

“And I wanted something more than just the same old, same old. Of course all the basics are there. But in addition to the traditional material, I felt it important to cover what is required for you to become a professional astrologer, how to start an astrological business, setting up an office, advertising, and all of that mundane but very important information. Equally important is the detailed section on how to become an astrological counselor, how to do readings, and what to expect from your clients and from yourself.

“And last, but not least, the emphasis in this course is on interpretation: what astrology means and how it is useful in day-to-day living. ‘Meaning’ is what this course is all about. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together.”

It is true that it is essential for the client to request a
reading and to state the questions they may have. That
alone is an offering. That is enough, in my opinion. They
must ask for the reading, if they are to receive one.
Without that, the astrologer is being asked to simply
perform and entertain or prove to the client that
astrology works, which is beside the point. The point is
to see if astrology can be useful or not for any
individual.

What is my bottom line here? If my life is such that I
need to make money doing astrology, I charge. If I have
other things going for me at the time, I do not charge.
And, if I do charge, it is not always money that is
exchanged. The exchange of goods and services is a
wonderful way to handle this. It has seemed to be true
for me that, if the client can exchange something, that
this leaves them in a better place, one where they can

take or leave what you may have to say to them. They
are not so much at your mercy. The reading, then, is
something that they bought and paid for and, therefore,
can do whatever they wish with. I know, this is slightly
contradictory with what I wrote earlier.

I guess I am of mixed mind about all of this fee
business. In a perfect world, I would have the astrology
play the role of the mentor, and the client the role of the
student, with the subject being: discovering your self
through astrology. In that scendario, I don't see the
need for money or any kind of barter. The experience
itself is an exchange, plain and simple.

I understand the world is not that simple and that the
mentor/student exchange is somewhat rare. So, I will
leave you to decide when and how much to charge for
your services, or whatever method of barter you might
come up with.
