About My Blogs: Part One: Stop Asking For Free Readings, & How To Use My Blogs

Receive a reading or consultation. I use astrology, tarot, numerology, psychic, and other tools to deliver a simply sensational session.


I originally wrote the following on April 22nd but I wanted to give it a breather because I’m very aware of how very direct I’m being here (I have Sun and Mars square MC) and that it might not go over well. I don’t want or like ruffling feathers but I am compelled to have a voice. For me, that means I avoid bottling stuff up so I can lead a happy life.

If these blog posts do not apply to you, keep calm and carry on! :D

I’ve also decided to break  this into two parts, since it got very long!

I’m going to be brutally honest here and write about something that many would consider socially unacceptable and maybe even a business breaker. But heck, I’m me (with the desire to be very forthright and honest) and these are my blogs about what I do for a living, rather than my actual business websites (where I generally earn my living), so if I can’t be me here — there’s no point in having a blog!

I’m not sure how many people are going to see this anyway but I think I need to make it clear again that I’m a professional astrologer.

Part One

Paid vs. Free Reading Requests

I teach and consult clients professionally, in a paid setting.

I am not independently wealthy nor do I have a side-job. This is all I do for a living and I scrape by. I’d like to stop scraping by. This is where you come in. You (and you know who you are or will be) can stop asking for free readings and actually book a paid reading or offer to actually do something for your reading — like link or promote my work.

If you can’t afford it, there’s lots of ways to get to where you can — just ask.

These blogs are first and foremost my mental dumping ground.

Secondly, they represent my desire to share, learn from, and teach others what I’ve learned along the way — astrogasms! I didn’t start and don’t continue these blogs to make money from them but then again, I don’t have them to give free readings away either. I’m just far too busy for that, and I respect my talents.

With Jupiter in my 9th and Sag on my 11th and 12th, it’s in my nature to teach and give freely; however, that doesn’t mean you attempt to take (without attempting to give back) just because you can. My Libra planets believe in reciprocity and there’s lots of ways to give back that isn’t in the form of money.

Money is what’s commonly used between strangers. You can be a stranger or you can be a friend, that’s up to you, but being a friend can cost a lot more!

Blog Value

I’m completely conscious to the fact that you’ll get value out of my blogs, and just like I learn new things from other blogs and websites, I’m sure that you’ll learn something new from these blogs too, and that you’ll grow from them BUT it’s not going to help you enough in your personal situations. That’s where a private consultation comes in.

And while I eat, breathe, and sleep astrology and absolutely LOVE talking about your personal chart details — I’d definitely like to get paid to do that, since I do it professionally and this is all I want to do for a living. Please keep that in your mind, because it’s in the back of mine! ;P

Regarding Participation

I’m delighted to receive blog comments from ANYONE, for or against what I have to say. In fact, there’s less value in it for me if I don’t get your comments on my posts. I like to learn too. Your questions and comments, for or against, stretch my mind further. And that stretching benefits you too — the cycle of life.

Professional astrologers are welcome to leave comments, along with a link back to their website (in the sign-in section) and that’s because we all have something different to offer — no two astrologers are alike and I am interested in co-operative arrangements with my colleagues. Having said that, if the only reason to post on my blog is to get a link back to your website — don’t bother.

Also, I don’t have blogs on my websites.  I’ve had my business websites for years.  Some bloggers use only their blog as part of, or as their website. They may have different preferences to what and who leaves comments but I don’t and that’s why.

Where to Leave Comments

I know it feels more comfortable to post a reply from wherever you found the blog link but if you come to visit the actual blog post, why not stay and leave a comment under the blog article?

Why? Because knowledge is collected in one place and everyone can benefit from it, rather than me engaging in a discussion all over the place (related to my original topic) that I’ll likely not be able to find easily down the road since Twitter, Facebook, and other social sites do not currently have a search feature.

If you use Twitter, you can send your comment back on the time-line so it’ll be as if we were actually chatting on Twitter! If you don’t know how to use the comment feature, just ask.

Just ask about everything you’re unsure about! LOL

When you leave a comment, try to focus less on yourself and your personal chart and more on the topic at hand.

If you’re comment is too long, I may feel overwhelmed and not respond at all. It depends.

If you have a blog, write up a post of your own indicating that you were inspired by my post and link back to my blog so I’ll be pinged!! And pleased!!

That’s good blog etiquette.

Post anonymously if you must, but I’d prefer to know who you are. You can log in with your Twitter, Facebook, or other profiles with the commenting system I use.

Did You Take This Personally?

This blog post is not directed at any one person.  I get a lot of emails, from strangers, asking for free readings and I get a lot of comments about my blog posts all over the place.  This is normal for ANY popular blog that has good information in it. I know I’m not alone here. So please don’t take these messages personal, unless you should and you’d know who you were even though I may not know who you are. ;P

But hopefully this blog post will enlighten you on something too, and that’s good.  We don’t all have blogs so we don’t know how it goes on for blog writers.  In that case, take this blog post as a peek into what goes on behind-the-scenes .

And if nothing else, this is for me.  It’s a public declaration of intent and preference!
