In this article, We like to talk to you about “fortune-telling” astrology consultation. Let’s take a look together.

Fortune-Telling astrological consultation
As an astrological consulting client, let’s talk about your expectations. What are your expectations? You probably most of you are used to fortune-telling astrological consultations.

When I say “style of fortune-telling” I mean style, not traditional Chinese fortune-tellers – I have no knowledge or experience with them. I don’t want to show disrespect or criticism of any tradition I’m not familiar with. You don’t need an American to criticize what he doesn’t understand!

My definition of a fortune-telling style is that astrologers rely on some form of Western astrology, whether modern or mixed with a variant of Greek, classical, or medieval astrology, to play a role in their clients In the role of authority, the client is only a passive participant.

In this fortune-telling routine, the client is one of the audience members and the astrologer is the performer. This type of fortune-telling performance is usually based on a belief in fatalism, or destiny, by both the client and the astrologer.

For example, a client might start by asking, “Am I going to be rich in the future?” The astrologer might stare at the client’s horoscope with a serious expression, appearing thoughtful and introspective.

The astrologer said, “You’ve never been good at managing money.” The client nodded affirmatively. “Over the course of your life, money goes up and down. I see that in three years your wealth increases and then immediately you lose money. After this loss, you will not be financially secure for 7 years. Then everything goes Change, and you’ll be comfortable for 8 years. However, you’ll never be rich.”

When the astrologer announces their future, the client may be busy taking notes or recording on their phone. Other questions may be asked, about marriage, children, family, relationships, career, and health, all answered by an astrologer who is an authority on the client’s future.

At this point, some of you may be thinking, “So, what’s wrong with doing astrology this way? When I go to an astrologer, I want them to tell me what’s going to happen in the future.”

If that’s what you want, don’t worry. There are many fortune-telling style astrologers to choose from. However, I have a question for you.

Would you still pay them to tell fortunes if you knew they had no idea who you were or what your future would be?

Would you still spend your hard-earned money on them if you knew they were just “guessing” about you and your life based on their own life experiences and astrological techniques?

Because, I’m making it clear here, not only do fortune-telling astrologers not know you as well as you know yourself but, even if they do believe in what they’re doing, they’re not an authority on your future.

They may have an opinion about you and your future, but that’s just speculation. So you pay others to guess, to guess problems that are only half as likely to be realized.

Of course, it’s your money. Spend what you want. Fortune-telling counseling actually makes you underestimate yourself than it brings you more value: real astrological counseling.

Fortune-telling: astrological consultation analysis
Let’s take a look at the fortune-telling answer to the customer question, “Am I going to get rich?”

The astrologer says, “You’ve never been good at managing your money.” This is an overtly judgmental expression, emphasizing the phrase, “It’s never been good.” This is an absolute statement, at least ostensibly authoritative.

We don’t know what technique — modern, classical, medieval, or a mix of these approaches — led the astrologer to make such a judgment, it doesn’t matter. Now it’s not about the pros and cons of a method or a system, it’s about “how to communicate and share a star map with customers”.

Let’s assume that astrologers really believe or believe in the astrological system they use. (That’s awesome!) Let’s assume this astrologer knows their astrology very well, although we know that each person’s level of expertise and experience can vary greatly.

First, objectively speaking, whether the client is good at financial management, at least according to the astrologer’s judgment parameters, his absolute statement has a 50% probability of being correct. Of course, there are other possibilities, the client may already be rich and just “testing” the astrologer.

Or, the client’s income or money management ability is actually in the middle, or even “fairly good,” and therefore neither completely good nor completely bad. However, such a subtle explanation has not been offered, so we can assume that the astrologer is fluent in making an absolute statement.

It is more likely that astrologers have the confidence to make such absolutes partly because of their reliance on the system they use and partly because they believe that if most people are already wealthy, they would not ask this question.

In this case, the astrologer is instantly affirmed when the client nods affirmatively. This is assuming that the astrologer can see the client, whether in person or online or WeChat, etc.

If it’s just over the phone or audio, we can assume that the astrologer hears “yes” or “that’s true” from the client, or if the client is silent, at least not denying their statement. Getting the client’s affirmation right away may increase the astrologer’s confidence. The astrologer may be bold enough to make other assertions – in which case the astrologer will certainly do so.

But what about customers? How do they feel?? It doesn’t seem to matter to the astrologer, he goes on to say his. If the client also agrees with the astrologer, “I’ve never been good at managing money,” then the client’s negative judgment of himself is heightened.

The client’s negative reinforcement is now in contrast to the astrologer’s positive reinforcement; the client thus empowers the astrologer without knowing it, and in doing so gives the astrologer more power and authority. We can assume the astrologer is feeling fine right now, but what about the client? We’re not sure either, aren’t we?
