“Can you tell me if Financial Astrology is lucrative? I would like to earn money as an astrologer. What do you think is the best way to learn financial astrology?”
This is a question I received from a reader like you about making money as a financial astrologer. This query comes up often and I have answered it below.
“Is Financial Astrology Lucrative?”
Whether financial astrology is lucrative depends. There is not a “yes” or “no” answer.
It depends on who you are and what you know.
As an astrologer, it really hinges on your own natal chart. For all questions like these, we would look to your unique birth chart
Ask yourself the following about your own chart:
Do I have the natal promise for income from financial astrology or even regular astrology for that matter?
Do I have planets in my second house?
Are they unafflicted?
Where is Uranus (the planet that rules astrology) and what is its condition?
Is Uranus unafflicted and that means it has no squares or oppositions from the malefics?
Is my second house ruler strong, direct and well-placed?
Then you would assess the Midheaven its ruler and the tenth house for your entrepreneurial skills.
- What is the sign?
- Who is the ruler?
- Where are they placed?
- Is your most elevated planet conjoined the Midheaven?
You may like to consider how to set up and run a prosperous astrology business.
Then look to your eleventh house for income from a business you own.
And let’s not forget the oriental planet that will indicate your vocation and what really moves you.
“I would like to earn money as an astrologer.”
This is a career choice that you are trying to make.
When you read your first chart and charge a fee then you are making money as an astrologer.
The point here is the words “making money” as that means different things to different people.
The question may be, “Do you have enough money?”
Income of US$1-1000 per month
Many astrologers do make some money from astrology. Anything from US$1 to US$999 per month.
Many astrologers work in this area with a variable income that can vary each month and it depends on how many charts they read and other activities.
Income of over US$1000 per month
Some astrologers make a reasonable amount. Here the benchmark is more than US$1000 per month. So that is around US$12000 per year.
But, does it provide for a full time living off astrology alone?
Perhaps not, but it does augment your day job, and it provides an outlet for the creative work that astrology can be.
If you live in Africa (as I did for over thirty years) or Asia you are likely to find this adequate income.
Income of over US$5000 per month
Very few astrologer fall into this category but it can be done. Here the income is enough to sustain astrology as a full-time job, career and vocation and you can comfortably budget for tax at around 20%.
With a net income of US$4000, anyone can manage, even those of us living in expensive cities in the first world.
You can look at the five levels of astrologer and see where you are and map out yoru career path using this a guideline.
“What do you think is the best way to learn financial astrology?”
Let us assume that you already know basic chart reading and you can you interpret a chart with confidence.
Financial astrology falls into two camps:
Do you want to follow the stock exchanges, forex and financial markets and earn money through your general fiscal information and tips?
Do you want to help everyday people to make good financial decisions based on their own natal chart and what it suggests for investments and luck?
Either way, you need to fully understand the dynamics of a chart, the four financial house and two financial planets. In other words your money planets.
Where to next?
You have to be confident in basic astrology in the first place.
You have to understand financial markets, economics etc.
You should be tracking your own financial upliftment that has happened through your own decisions based on the astrology in your chart.
You should already be giving astrological financial advice to family and friends.
Always look to your own natal chart for guidance on when to start an astrology business, how to name your astrology business.
