On episode 163 of the Astrology podcast, astrologers Jo Gleason and Adam Elenbaas discuss on the show about horoscope columns, the process of writing, and why they’re still an important and useful tool in developing their skills as astrologers.
I had been thinking about making a series of monthly horoscopes for some time, thought this would be an interesting challenge, and also wanted to expand my audience a bit to bring more people into the astrological community.
Last week I decided to give it a try and created a series of monthly horoscopes for each zodiac sign via my channel on YouTube and focused on interpreting them mainly in relation to each rising sign using entire shield houses.
The process of creating a chart column for the first time brought a lot of interesting thoughts and problems, and that’s why I wanted to talk to Jo and Adam about it, as both have developed expertise in the field.
Jo is the vice-president of the Young Astrologers Association and she was the shadow writer for several columns of horoscope. She wrote a thread on Twitter in June encouraging more astrologers to write horoscopes, and recently wrote a post on her blog called Why I Still Read My Horoscope.
Adam regularly teaches and writes astrological forecasting each week through the Nightlight Astrology School and also writes the monthly horoscopes for Astrograph.
As the discussion progresses, we talk about how horoscopes can still be legitimate or useful, even though they are simple compared to advanced astrological techniques and forecasting. We also talk about how horoscopes are written and the unique challenges associated with them.
