What placements can indicate a career as an astrologer?
I seem to see some indications in my own chart though would like to hear your opinion.
Any thoughts on common placements in this case?

Aquarius, Sagittarius, Uranus, the 9th house and the 11th house are generally great for the mastery of astrological knowledge which requires a symbolic mind. Also water signs and the 8th house are always important when it comes to relating with clients on an emotional level.

You do have nice placements suitable for an astrology career.

Aquarius Ascendant with an angular Uranus.

Sagittarius MC with an angular Pluto, a lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius

Cancer 6th house ruled by a potent Moon conjunct South-Node in the 3rd house of knowledge

A Virgo 8th house ruled by a 1st house Mercury exalted in Aquarius

quote from
Encyclopedia of Psychological Astrology by Charles E. O. Carter

"Astrology, Interest in - Uranus is traditionally the astrological planet, and this is probably correct, at least as regards the deeper aspects of the science. At the same time, prominent astrologers have not always had this planet pronouncedly strong in their nativities, and the excessive conservatism and love of traditional authority that has characterized almost all astrological students up to very recent times — and many even now— hardly point to a Uranian rulership. Even at the present time one often reads "appeals to Ptolemy" which are as anachronistic as an attempt by a medical specialist to support his contentions out of the pages of Galen or Hippocrates. This implies that Saturn has much to do with astrology and its students. Further, hie all branches of knowledge, the mental planets Mercury and Jupiter are important, and several notable astrologers have been born under Gemini and Sagittarius. Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio are also common ascendants.

The special zodiacal areas associated with Astrology are
beyond question those around 27° Leo and Aquarius and 11° Virgo-Pisces."

You answered my question to you in your post on house systems.

Aquarius is deemed the ruler of astrologer, but as someone else mentioned, not all astrologers have a strong Aquarius or Uranus placement. I don´t have any planets in Aquarius, but Uranus is very strongly placed in my 10th squariug Sun, Quincunx Moon, sextile Venus.

There´s another saying that Gemini is important and I agree. Astrology requires a mind that is interested in a whole lot of pieces to a puzzle - likes gaining pieces of knowledge and truth to figure out a whole. I have Mercury as ruler of my chart, Gemini MC and Mercury in 8th. Although I was interested in astrology early in my life - I didn´t get serious about astrology as a career until my Secondary Progressed Sun entered Gemini. And then it was like a match lighting a fire.

So yes. I think you have the makings of an astrologer. More importantly, you have a keen interest. I imagine the Taurus need for security is what makes you feel this is risky. And it is! It isn´t easy to make a living as an astrolger. Some do - but usually people who´ve been at it for years. But that doesn´t stop those of us who do it anyway.

One thing whether you have the ability for astrology, another thing is whether success awaits you in practicing astrology as a profession

If we talk specifically about the profession of an astrologer, the possibilities of earning with the help of astrology, then pay attention to the connection of Uranus, 11th house with the 2nd house and its ruler.

A lot of astrologers and Tarot readers are successfully making money on YouTube without any talent :4:

And you have both talent and opportunity, so you´re lucky

Jay Jay thank you so much for your time and you replies! :6:
I changed my majors few times so trying to find myself and what I actually want to do in my life. And as I have so many interests it’s hard for me to focus on something specifically. So I started studying astrology more in order to understand myself better in terms what I actually want and why it is not working sometimes. And this career does seem so risky to me, but I have a lot of passion towards astrology inside. So evaluating pros and cons:))) thank you again, you have helped me indeed today

Haha yes! So many experts everywhere and it’s hard to find a true talent sometimes! Thank you for your opinion, much appreciated

It´s true that some youtube personalities do make money at astrology without much talent - but - if you are an inspired, serious, ethical astrologer - you wouldn´t do that. You have to have the need to be in front of people to do that too.

Maybe you´re right about her talent and opportunity. Uranus and Neptune are in Capricorn, 12th house - in any house system though - not 11th. That says something different to me. But, I do think the possibility is there - success with astrology. It takes the right personality (in so many ways) to make it work financially.

I have to admit, I kind of got obsessed over your chart because of all the contradictions and analyzing what you could do with those. Truly, this is a fascinating chart. Pisces defies knowing who you are, as it is nothing and everything all at once. I know so many people who feels a bit lost with their Pisces placements.

I understand you probably feel a need to ground yourself in something, and I imagine being physically active is very grounding. Perhaps, there´s a way to identify with being someone who wears many hats in some satisfying way. You do love variety. This is most certainly part of who you are.

I have a Sagittarius Moon. Sagittarius usually has way too many interests and wants to do all of them. I know what that feels like. Luckily my interests were pretty cohesive and one helped the other.

If you take the Taurus Moon, Aquarius Rising and Pisces Sun - it spells what is most important. So, in your decision-making process, you need to honor all three.

Taurus Moon - material security, stability, peacefulness - you can´t be worried about your material safety

Aquarius rising - independence, intuitive mental activity, desire to make the world a better place - you can´t be bossed around or pigeon-holed - you need to follow your unique path.

Pisces Sun - creativity, spirituality, ability to play many roles, having empathy and compassion - you may not need many people close to you, but you will still have compassion for people - and - you will not put yourself first if other people have a need.

I´ve already elaborated on your chart elsewhere. I would meditate upon Taurus, Aquarius and Pisces - and let your intuition run with it.
