I don't know how many of you people believe in astrology.... I am a Saggitarius, the most philosophical of all the signs. But, anyway, I don't believe in it. I think it's a bunch of bullshit myself.
Whether or not you share Jim's sentiment, astrology is a vehicle for self-reflection on the deepest parts of yourself in an increasingly externalized world. Going through a chart presents the viewer with the opportunity to consider aspects of their personality while they choose to accept or reject these suppositions about themselves.
For me, the personal appeal of astrology is its complexity. While not scientifically rigorous, this (at a minimum) 4000-year-old practice has picked up a lot of nuance on its way to the present, providing complex insinuations and calculations which can be analyzed for hours. While I enjoyed the technical aspects, I noticed the friends whose charts I was reading were always very interested to hear what astrology had to say about them.
There are a number of common misconceptions, such as confirmation bias explaining the whole phenomenon, which I'll spare you for the moment. I suspect if you're reading this you're either: 1) already interested in astrology or 2) deeply concerned that AtlasTalked's founder is a lunatic. There's no denying the latter, for this reason or others, so I'll address the former party who may like a reading.
I use professional astrological software that permits quick and easy progressions, returns, combined charts, and synastry. In other words, I'm equipped to provide information on your natal chart, progressed chart, solar return, transits, and relationships. That's the influences on you at birth, at the present, for this year, at this moment, and between people/events, respectively.
Of course, as a professional madman, I'm well versed in business astrology. I'd be delighted to find the right time to christen your venture or describe the influences present when you founded. Naturally, partnerships and transaction dates are commonly analyzed.
My approach has become opinionated over the years and I'm also very trepidatious about certain prognostications. Since many people are certain of astrology's veracity, I'm careful to offer the choice to opt-out of hearing the harsher suggestions from the stars, such as medical problems, and emphasize the silver linings of the more ominous indications.
I tend to disregard asteroids and Arabic Points, to the extent of minimizing the recently discovered outer planets. I can and will provide their interpretation nonetheless. I can easily interpret the chart myself without aids, though I delight in explaining the theory so I will insist on a screensharing feature.
I'll ask for the chart details (e.g., birth time/place) in advance and study it myself before our meeting. I relish this almost as much talking with friends, so you can nearly expect me to go above and beyond.
