Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to get an astrological report or reading?

Here is what you need:
  • Your birth date
  • Your birth time
  • Your birth location

The birth time is usually found on the birth certificate.

How important is the birth time
and how accurate does it need to be?

We need the birth time to be able to calculate your horoscope correctly. The birth time needs to be as accurate as possible. There are a number of astrological techniques which require precision up to the minute. Even a computerized interpretation can change from one moment to the next. So, the less precise the time, the less precise the horoscope will be. Even 15 minutes can make a difference in the interpretation.

In order to get the positions of the Ascendant, Sun, Moon and planets right it really is best for you to give us the most precise birth time you can give us. The skies above us move so quickly. The less precise the time, the less precise the horoscope.

One popular computer written report we have is called Heaven Knows What is valid even for those who don;t know their time of birth. Focus is placed on those factors that are in effect throughout the birth day. The only exeception to this is in the case of the Moon because it moves so quickly it can move to another sign within a day. Over time working with an astrologer can help fine tune this as planetary cycles and where they are effecting you in your life can add clarity to where things fall in your chart and act almost as if you did know your exact birth time.

What is the difference between a computer written
report and a private astrological consultation?

A written report cannot replace the personal dialogue between an astrologer and a client, although it is extremely insightful and helpful. One client's perspective was that it was like comparing fast-food to a gourmet dinner.

When should I look at getting an astrological
report done?

This varies according to different people. Here are some examples:

  • Life changes - milestone events. Perhaps you are looking at a move - then you might want to read up on relocation astrology and how it can help you.

  • Annually - One of our most popular computerized written reports is called the Solar Return. It marks the exact moment when the Sun returns to the exact point it was in at the time of your birth. How is this significant? It is considered a sacred annual event and is used to plan and set the stage for the upcoming year specifically for you.

  • Compatiblity - want to get the inside scoop on all the powerful ways in which your relationship is unique.

  • Upcoming forecast - what is on your personal horizon for the upcoming year?

  • Career - how can astrology best help you to make the most out of your career choices.
  • Moving, Traveling and/or Vacationing, Retiring to a Destination - Locality astrology helps you pinpoint what geographic locations throughout the world are best for you. The influences at that location for you. This can be useful for place of residence, place of retirment, career moves, pursuing education, long stays at different locations, destination weddings and more. Any location that will have an impact on you and your lifestyle.
