Is it awkward to read other people’s horoscopes ?
I told my friend I read her and other people’s horoscope, just to see if it was bad or anything like that. She said that was awkward. I don’t really understand how it’s just a horoscope.
Answer by ~*Be Fuddled*~
No, it’s not weird at all. It just shows that you care for other ppl as well as yourself… Your friend sounds a little selfish..

It isn’t awkward for the person who reads but some people may think it could reveal too much about them. Through the years I have met people who were a bit concerned that an astrology chart may reveal too much and purposely gave me wrong information such as their birth time or city just in case. They were curious and fearful at the same time. There are also people who don’t believe in charting at all and do it for fun. When you hit on a truth they get very upset and feel exposed.
It you are talking about reading horoscopes for everyone such as the horoscopes in the newspaper your friend is a bit oversensitive. Daily horoscopes are good fun and a friendly way to interact.

I have to agree with your friend as it can be awkward at times telling another what they need to work on in this lifetime.
For example I was reading a chart for a close relative and there were several aspects of infidelity. How do you tell someone that they are probably unfaithful to their mate? In fact I knew this relative HAD been unfaithful but I just couldn’t come right out and say that could I? So instead I suggested that she should have “sown her wild oats” before she settled down with one mate. She agreed with me (of course) and we went on with her reading.
And when you interpret a chart everyone always wants to hear the “good” things. I was like that too when I first saw my natal chart. I loved the sextiles and the trines but the hard aspects were tough to take. Especially when I would look up the hard aspects in my astrology books. Nothing good there to see! I began to dislike my aspects (and the authors too) and it was hard to take that many of the definitions were spot-on.
So I try to use kind words instead of the hurtful words that so many astrology books and web sites offer. I refer to the hard aspects as Life Lessons and tone it down a few notches because an astrologer never knows if one has already overcome a hard aspect in their chart.
I’ve had several books that were just hateful in their words regarding hard aspects. People have asked here on YA about someone dying because Pluto is transiting their 8th House of Death. Scaring someone is not going to turn them into a lover of astrology. So when I read a definition of a hard aspect now I just think “why couldn’t they have worded that more kindly?” Some astrologers enjoy telling another about their weaknesses and their hard aspects.
I went to an astrologer in my mid-twenties and he told me that my mate lied to me. And when he said it I could see the satisfaction in his face as he said it. He “got off” on telling others hurtful things. And you know what? He was right that my mates lied to me. But did he have to “enjoy” saying it so much? There is just a mean streak in some astrologers and I do not want to be part of that club.
I visit another astrology forum but they are all so self-righteous thinking they have all the answers but guess what? Nobody knows everything. Not even “a**-trologers.” That is what I call the hateful-acting so-called astrologers that love to hurt another’s feelings.
People often consult with an astrologer when they are facing tough life changes and the last thing that they need is someone that basically enjoys insulting them. Yes astrologers can really be smug. That is why I hang here on Answers. There are people here that love astrology and love sharing their knowledge with others. Yes there are some “a**-trologers” here on Answers but I just leave them alone as all they are doing is making new negative karma for themselves. I am just not into that.
And your statement of “I don’t really understand how it’s just a horoscope.” I just disagree with that. A horoscope is a blueprint or a Life Map of the Lessons one is to learn in this lifetime. And to be able to kindly tell another what they are to be working on in this lifetime is ‘touchy’ business. One has to be “kindly discreet.”
So I always try to close with positive statements about another’s chart. I have been insulted by an astrologer before but he will be paying for that karma. Not me.
Everything we do in life is either done with the proper intention or done with an improper intention. I feel astrologers must have the proper intention when reading a chart. Careful wording is important. To me anyway.
So hope this is helpful to you and helps you understand why astrologers need to “walk on egg shells” at times when discussing a major life lesson with another. It isn’t awkward when the right words are chosen. That is the real test in interpretation. Giving the information to another in a kind helpful fashion. Anyone who “enjoys” being the bearer of bad news shouldn’t be an astrologer.
Good luck and bless you too.

I find espec around here people have lots of unrealistic expectations of what astrology can actually do and feel threatened as if we know all their dark secret and inner workings of their subconscious mind… which is inaccurate. Your natal chart is your blueprint of you and full of potentials, but we don’t always fulfil that potential, whether its the good bad or ugly….
Perhaps you should read this thread entitled: astrology predicts meanings, not events
10 do’s and don’t in astrology
TRUTH ABOUT ASTROLOGY
Astrology is humanity’s oldest and most precise mindmap. It cannot, however, accurately predict events. THE STARS’ & THE PLANETS HOLD HALF THE ANSWERS: YOU HOLD THE REST! Choices you make within the astrological environment determines what actually happens to you.
We are ALL FREE PEOPLE WITH FREE WILL. No rigid, fatalistic prediction can bind us. There is no astrological event so baleful that creativity, intelligence, and honest self appraisal cannot turn it to constructive uses and there is no configuration so glorious that selfishness and laziness cannot sour it!
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
The purpose of modern predictive astrology is to help people make better choices, to clarify the nature of the psychological terrain through which they are passing, and to serve as their ally in the endless, unpredictable task of creating the future!
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Astrology CAN be mind boggling in its accuracy, but it can never consistently predict who is going to walk through the doors of your home, work or family environment. It doesn’t naturally speak the language of outward, concrete events. The future that astrology foresees with such startling exactitude, doesn’t always unfold in the world “out there.” It unfolds between your ears and in your heart!
Astrology cannot predict that you’re going to wreck your car, win the Lottery or Grand National. It cannot point out in advance the date of your marriage (although certain advantageous conditions CAN make romantic suggestions and overtones that would be fortuitous), your death, or the arrival of your new TV set. That kind of astrological prophecy is misleading, bogus and unreliable.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
What modern predictive astrology can do is inform you in advance of the natural rhythms of your life and moods thereby helping you arrange your life (outward experiences) in the happiest, most harmonious and efficient manner!
