Astrologer meets client
Tricks of the trade

Jacques Halbronn

An abridged translation of L'astrologue face a son client: les ficelles du metier
2nd edition, Editions de la Grande Conjunction, Paris 1995.

Abstract -- The present emphasis on tradition, techniques, and speculation, should be reduced in favour of making astrologers more aware of what happens during a chart reading. Astrologers should not be deceived by the apparent success of their experiences. Such success is due not to any inherent truth in astrology but to their strategies and tricks of the trade, or what scientific researchers would call artifacts. We should avoid training astrologers who become entrapped by bad habits. Article is illustrated with ten cartoons.
