I had a horrible experience yesterday. Some gal asked me for advice regarding a very serious situation she’s in. She specifically said she needed advice from someone with a “sound mind”.
I do have a sound mind, as well as knowledge about and experience with the situation she’s dealing with. I did not know the particulars of her circumstance but she sounded truly desperate so I decided to try to help her. This is online, by the way. It’s a gal from a (non-astrology) forum I frequent.
I was really beat last night, when I wrote for her. I did mention up front, I’d not read all her posts in the forum. I was shooting in the dark to some extent and I stated my limitations. I then wrote something I hoped would help her.
Well, guess what? It wasn’t much help.
I’m not used to this! I give advice all day long. I’ve been doing it for decades and I know this for sure: I’m good at it. But you know what? I NEED THE CHART.
I have always felt astrology was an enormous time-saver when it comes to getting to the root of a problem and devising a solution. One good consultation can easily save you months if not years of therapy. Oh, but I wish I’d have not given that advice. I went as far as to apologize for it, though she did not feel this was necessary.
She did not feel it was necessary because she does not know the difference between my “advice” and my “advice using astrology”. I am really quite pissed at myself over this. I don’t think I will be stepping in this particular pile of poo, anytime soon.
If you’re having a problem, I would take this into consideration. You’re lucky to be reading this astrology site where the advice given has basis, even if the basis is ethereal. I can’t really ask this gal for “birth data”. As a result, I would estimate my input to be no more than 20% of what it would be if I had a chart.
