Astrologers are people who give general life predictions and also answer your questions about your future. They give these predictions based on some calculations of your natal chart and zodiac sign. Planets have a great influence on the life of people and the way these plants and zodiac signs move has a big impact on how the person will lead his life. Some people become very famous and some lead a very problematic life. All these are indicated in astrology and a good astrologer can also tell such things.
Astrology is all about calculations. If you are looking for a good astrologer, then you can find one on the internet.
Astrologers never give advice to people. They only give a list of possibilities in their life. They will identify and show you the problem areas in your future and also suggest remedies to rectify them. All astrological predictions are possibilities. So when you talk to an astrologer, a lot of things depend on you. So, before going make a list of your questions. Your questions should be objective and not vague.
If the astrologer is asking for an exorbitant amount in fees, then ask further questions about that. Actually an astrologer who wants to charge an arm and a leg may not be genuine. The regular fees can be anything from $75 to $200. Beyond that is a bit too much.
Ask what kind of methodology this astrologer is using to predict. If he or she is very specific, then it is possible they are using specialized knowledge. Make sure they give you specialized predictions rather than generalized ones.
