Okay guys, I have a dilemma going on. At what point do we bend ethics for ourselves? And no fair saying you never do.
When asking someone for their birth info, a little disclaimer goes off in my head. I don’t bother repeating it, as in the past it has just gotten me, nodding, a condescending smile, and an attitude like, “sure kid, knock yourself out *chuckles*) I hear “Warning, if you give me the information you are giving me the keys to your very being…. NOTHING is hidden anymore.” Okay, okay… I am not THAT great an Astrologer, but I will still have the upper hand. And could always make a mistake and never give the other one the benefits of choice and personal growth. We are all born and carry our birth charts, and we do grow and develop and yet it is the same chart with us.
Watching all over the web, apparently it has become acceptable behavior to speak about a 3rd party chart without their permission and to the whole world!! Imagine Googling your birthdate and finding yourself on an Astrology site being dissected by a bunch of strangers with nicknames such as Starcandy, Celestialkarma, or some other combination of sparkly imagery. Sometimes they get things right, and not amusingly they often project their own dysfunctions on the poor victim’s chart….. the current favorite now being, ” He has issues with his Mother”…. gah, who doesn’t anyway. The chart is unfairly judged…. and probably very confusing if you have found yourself on this page and not know or even believe in Astrology. What do they mean that my Amour and Valentine clash and I am a serial murderer? Well, I am a seasoned Astrologer and would be shaking my head at the asteroid mention but someone with out a background this is all silly “MoonManTalk” and they are accusing him of atrocities he has never even thought of, let committed. Imagine if we practiced medicine in this same way? And imagine if it was on the web with no privacy and everyone could see …. wait a minute, a decent Astrologer can see the same just off the chart or birth information. Is there no privacy? Not with Astrology. As Astrologers is it fair for us to help out only one person in the “relationship” (often the case, the people have never even dated….seriously) It is like we are being used as a secret weapon… wake up people… WE ARE BEING USED by the same type person that would throw someones privacy out the window to see if someone named Suzysunshineandstarfarts will tell them that they found their soulmate. People are not party games and that is what we are being reduced to…. and no one is saying anything. The would be or dabbling Astrologers have something to prove, so they go along…. us that have done this a bit are feeling uneasy, there is something wrong here, and those that have really thought out the respect of clients and self (usually affiliated with an Association) would never consider harming another human.
I have to get there, I really do. I am guilty of getting a person’s birth information prior to even dating. You know, and maybe that is okay… or justifying…. since I am looking for basic compatibility and a lack of violent aspects. (I have had 2 domestic nightmares involving violence so I know I am prone to keep trying that cycle) Is this still unfair peeking at the Christmas Presents, or is this prudent? Why should I be able to do this and other non astrologers not have it available? Do Psychiatrist shut off their learning when meeting a new person? Or are they analyzing as they socialize? These are tools we have, shouldn’t we use them?
What I am sure about, as with any other tool… they must be used correctly or damage may occur. It is an exasperating experience to have someone say Astrology PROVES this person is their Soulmate…. and then ask a question like, is he cheating on me?… Well, go ask him, afterall he is your other half and surely that is close enough that you can communicate.
