The Profession of Astrology
July 16, 2015
Hosted by Janey C. McCarthy, MEd and Mary Jo Wevers, PhD
How does someone become a professional astrologer? What background, training and education is needed? What do professional astrologers study, and in what schools and programs? What other areas of study, occupations, and experience enhance the astrologer’s skill set, credibility and professionalism? How long do astrologers need to practice their craft to earn the status of a professional? Are there indicators in the natal chart of astrologers that suggest an aptitude for the profession? If so, what are they? Can we “predict” who will be a good astrologer? How do astrologers navigate the transition from astrology being an avocation, to a vocation? Hear from our guest Maurice Fernandez, President of the Organization for Professional Astrology. A practicing astrologer for more than twenty years, Maurice developed a worldwide network as a full-time astrology teacher, counselor, and writer. He is a prolific author and has organized several astrology conferences around the world.

Janey McCarthy, MEd, left her technology career behind to become a Jungian Karmic Astrologer after discovering what Carl Jung had confirmed: The natal chart is a sacred, geometrically perfected personal database. Professional recognition as an astrologer and writer came when the website Planetwaves.net chose her article ‘The Silence Between the Words’, from 500 submissions, for the 2014 Annual Edition of Listen. She offers workshops and presentations, and counsels her astrology mentors, peers and clients from the east coast.
Mary Jo Wevers, PhD “re-discovered” astrology late in life, and found it came to her intuitively and easily. An enthusiastic and inspired astrologer for 15 years, she counsels clients, teaches classes and gives workshops and seminars on special topics in astrology. She writes a newsletter and has a blog on her web site, MaryJoWevers.com. She is a featured speaker at local metaphysical schools and churches and has been a conversation leader in the Northwest Astrology and Tarot Salon.
