I have a very clear philosophy on why, when and how I price my astrology readings as I do.
My philosophy is simple. Astrology is priceless when it is accurate and expensive beyond count when it is not.
When the discernment is spot on, no amount of money is enough, not enough or even appropriate to talk about. The exchange is a gift from God to both of us, nothing less.
If the discernment were faked, cloudy or a projection, then that would be for the client a vast deep expense, a huge loss of a precious investment of trust, of belief, and yes, of money where the money is actually the least important.
It would also be, I imagine, a terrible cost to the reader, a Faustian expenditure of the soul for baubles of transient esteem.
I hope you see that either way, money really is not the primary issue.
So, by the way, choose carefully whenever you give your birth information, however seemingly casual or anonymous or free the situation. You may be spending from your very being.
The ethics of the astrologer is paramount.
I am that, and so I choose to request a nominal amount, about 30-50% of my colleagues. I also prepare a pdf of all of your charts and include it with a recording of the session that I physically mail or securely email to you, an unusual bonus.
I want my airfare to astrology workshops and so on to be covered while allowing just about everyone full access to this important help if they need it. The particular prices I have chosen seem to do this fairly.
I want to be the people’s astrologer.
I hope you understand and do not become suspicious at the low price or miffed if it seems high.
If either case happens, please see the third paragraph again.
Finally, if you have absolutely zero resources for astrology, but need it desperately, write to me about your situation. I have a very limited number of hours per year that I dedicate to just such situations.
