In episode 136 of the podcast astrologer, Adam Elenbaas is rejoining the show to answer some remaining questions we’ve received from listeners over the past few months as a result of episodes 133 and 127.
In this episode, we have covered a wide variety of questions, ranging from discussions about the structure and value of astrological consultations to questions about how to use the voting cards provided in our forecasting episodes.

Questions discussed in this episode
Here are the questions from the audience that we answered or discussed in this episode.
Most of these questions were submitted by customers of the Astrology podcast in September or October 2017.
- I would like to hear specific examples of astrological advice or interpretation that have positively contributed to a client’s understanding of themselves and the world around them.
- How is a counseling session structured?
- What are the challenges and how do you prepare?
- Have you ever done readings that didn’t hit the mark for the client?
- What are examples in your career that validate your decision to become a professional astrologer, despite the lack of understanding and acceptance by the wider public?
- Since astrology, especially ancient / traditional astrology, has a completely different worldview in relation to how our cosmos works, it seems to contradict our current secular materialistic worldview.
- How do you deal with the cognitive dissonance this creates in your life (if at all)?
- I think this has been addressed in previous episodes and will vary from person to person, but I’m excited to see how you deal with it more personally each day.
- My question for the Q&A episode is about a planet that is under the rays but not in the sign. Is the weakness active or less than if they were in the same sign? That is, in a wedding card, the sun is at 28 Virgo and Jupiter is at 6 Libra.
- Two concepts that I don’t have a practical grasp of are declination and anti-skia.
- How important are these factors for your election work?
- Did the discovery of these concepts become a game changer (and if so, how?) For you in your astrological studies.
- How does examining these points bring casting or examining a graph in color or more precision?
- I know you have already talked about the return of Saturn, but since this is relevant to the imminent entry into Capricorn, I think it would be interesting for the listeners to see the effects of Saturn in Capricorn on those with this birth position to discuss.
- With a lot of emphasis on the ascendant, I wondered how you would assess the importance of the descendant, mainly in the birth and progression cards.
- I wonder if the adage attract opposites has to do with the AC / DC as sort of two sides of the same coin.
- I would like to know what steps people are taking to get the most out of the elections you have been holding.
- They’re great at saying what and when, but I’m curious to see how people actually work with them.
- I think it would be nice to learn more about using common sense of choice astrology. How do you best use or apply the time?
- Aside from applying for a choice at birth, I find it helpful to definitely know which practical application is best for the choice.
