Frequently Asked Questions about Susan West
Q: What is a reading?
A: Basically, I am an interpreter. I study the configuration of the sky at the moment of your birth, which reflects your unique essence. I make a chart and then relate to you what I see.
Q: What does a reading cost and how long does it take?
A: A one-hour reading costs $125; 2 hours (the works) is $225. Each reading includes at least an hour of preparation time before you arrive, your charts and a CD (or tape) of the reading.
Q: Can you tell me what I should do with my life?
A: I can show you options. Which direction might be open for you. What your true self needs to flourish. What areas to avoid.
Q: Can you tell me if I'll find love? Or be successful?
A: I can describe what kind of people you should be looking for and when to look. I can show you what paths are open to you--where the pitfalls lie and where opportunities might be. I can point out avenues to help change your goals if you feel you have embarked on the wrong path. I cannot tell you what you have to do. I can enlighten. You do the rest.
Q: Who goes to an astrologer?
A: Presidents, housewives, nuns, secretaries, doctors, teachers, CEOs, the old, the young. Anyone who is curious about their life's path and wants to live a better life.
Q: Should I be nervous about what you find?
A: Not at all. A chart reveals your potential. Your gifts. Your challenges. It is a roadmap. A map of your life. Only you can choose the route you take.
Q: Is an astrologer a psychic?
A: Not necessarily. However, I find that I have intuitive gifts that help interpret the mysteries and variances of any chart.
Q: Is astrology the best guide?
A: Astrology is an in-depth individual interpretation of one's life course, yet every avenue of self-discovery is valid. I also find the I Ching valuable when asking specific questions.
Q: How do the planets guide our destinies?
A: Different heavenly bodies have different influences on our life. For example:
Venus, Mars and your 7th house (or house of marriage) point to your perfect soul mate. In India, marriages are arranged through astrology. It's good to look at your house of love, which is different from your house of marriage!
Have you ever wondered why other people seem to have all the luck? Jupiter tells us what aspect of our lives will bring health, protection, assistance and luck. There are specific occasions when we should take risks because luck is on our shoulder. Jupiter in your chart can help find out when you should make that Leap of Faith.
The emotional side of our psyche is determined by the position and sign of our moon. While our emotions should not rule our life, we cannot cope with life's problems unless we know how to first make ourselves happy.
