As an astrological counselor, I am a strong believer in the privacy of the clients who come to me for a consultation. I will never mention in casual conversation that so-and-so came to me for a reading, nor do I discuss the contents of their charts with others. So I was mortified to learn that a certain planetary combination recently discussed in this column was recognized by that client’s astrologer friends.
There is so much that we can learn about astrology through the charts of others; yet in an environment like the web which is so public extra care must be taken to maintain the privacy of individuals. I had not realized that the web of readers of this column was so intimate and so knowledgeable that they would recognize an individual through a few words about a planetary aspect.
So be assured, dear readers and clients, that from this point forth I shall not post a single word about the charts of individuals whom I know personally without first obtaining their express permission. As much as I value the ability to teach astrology through these examples, I value your privacy more and will continue to make that a priority.
