WHAT TO EXPECT
from your
Astrological Consultation
 
The FAAWA is aware of many misconceptions from the general community about exactly what to expect from an astrology consultation. Of course each visit can be quite different according to the approach and expertise of the individual astrologer, and the interaction of the client. So, we would like to clarify three points:
  • What you should expect from a quality astrological consultation ?
  • How to find a qualified astrologer ?
  • What are astrology qualifications ?
What to expect
 
When considering an astrological consultation there are many issues to consider, so how do you chose if you don’t already know of a good astrologer ?  Some things to consider are:
  • Have you spoken to someone who can recommend the astrologer ?
  • Does the astrologer have a recognised astrology qualification ?
  • How long is the consultation ?
  • How much does it cost ?
  • Will you receive a tape or written record of the consultation ?
  • Can you contact them afterwards to clarify any uncertain points ?
  • Where will they conduct the consultation ?
  • What is a qualified astrologer ?

There are a variety of astrology schools in Australia which teach a structured astrology curriculum and test their students to ensure a flow of consistent and high quality of astrology practitioners into the community.

Astrologers who choose to attend a Federation of Australian Astrologers Inc (FAA) affiliated school, and successfully complete around 3 to 4 years rigorous training and examination process attain the FAA Practitioner's Certificate, and are entitled to use the letters QA (FAA) after their name in all advertising.
 
When entering the FAA exam system all astrologers are bound by a Code of Ethics and are committed to raising the professional image and standard of astrology in Australia.
 
The FAA national body has an Exam Board, which has developed a comprehensive examination system to ensure the continuing development of fully qualified practicing astrologers who aim for excellence in their profession.
