Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What happens during a reading?
A. I begin with a short blessing for the day. Initially I do a lot of listening as I make inquiries to get a sense of you and the areas you want to focus on during the reading. I find that charts in and of themselves are two dimensional and use the opening minutes in dialogue with you to help bring forth the third dimension. Gradually I begin carrying more of the conversation while interpreting what I see in the charts. Every reading develops its own flow as various themes are uncovered and expanded. I always allow for time at the conclusion of the reading to answer questions or to expand further on areas of interest.
Q. I'm concerned about confidentiality. How do you handle this issue?
A. Your participation in the reading and all information you divulge is treated strictly confidentially unless you indicate otherwise. My ability to be of service to you is dependent on your trust. I honor your trust by keeping your identity and your concerns private.
Q. What do you mean by client directed readings? What kind of questions should I ask?
A. Astrological charts impart far more information than can be conveyed within the scope of a single reading. "Client Directed" simply means I encourage you to get your needs met within the time we have together by choosing the specific subjects and issues that are most important to you. If you are at a loss, rest assured that I always have something to say. I just want you to have input so that you can get as much meaning as possible out of your reading.
Q. What about follow up? How often should I schedule a reading?
A. There are no hard and fast rules. Usually I like for you to spend time with the thoughts presented in the first reading before scheduling another reading. Some clients see me once a month, others once or twice a year.
Q. Do you make predictions?
A. I prefer to call it forecasting. This means that just like the weatherman, more often than not I am pretty accurate...however, I am fallible. I firmly believe that we are all blessed with the gift of choice. I also believe God answers prayers. And the combination of both of those elements leads me to embrace that no forecast can ever be fated. There is tremendous value in knowing what energy cycles are being played out in your life and I use forecasting for that purpose.
Q. Can I bring someone with me during a reading?
A. The short answer is yes, but I truly do not recommend it. The more candid you are, the better I can be of service to you. If you feel inhibited, then your reading will not be as full as it could be. I do appreciate your telling me in advance if you would like to bring a guest.
Q. I know Astrologers are able see many things in a chart, but what if there are things I don't want to talk about?
A. The reading belongs to you. I have no agenda other than to be of service. We talk about what is of interest to you. If the discussion gets off track from where you want it to be, then just let me know and we can re-direct the conversation.
