First, read Robert Blaschke's A HANDBOOK FOR THE SELF-EMPLOYED ASTROLOGER. This practical handbook for self-employed astrologers will address all of your concerns: transitioning from a student to a professional; establishing a professional practice; handling income, expenses and taxes; marketing and advertising; navigating the client relationship; teaching and local public speaking; writing, publishing and lecture travel; participating in the astrological community; overcoming occupational hazards; fostering personal and spiritual growth; notes for astrologers in the UK and Australia; and more.

You may find it answers all your questions and then some; however, if you'd still like a consult about setting up a practice, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

How important is it to give you my correct birthtime?

VERY IMPORTANT! Sometimes even five minutes can make a significant difference in a birthchart. Please be certain of the accuracy of your birth data if you're getting a report or a reading.

How can I find my birthtime?

In the US, sometimes the state recorded the time, even if it isn't on the birth certificate. Visit our Where to Order Birth Certificates page for details. That page also has some information for Europe. If you're adopted and all you want to know is your birthtime, the Internet itself is a great source of information. Google "adoptee information" or something similar, and see what you can locate.

What if I still can't find my birth time?

Seek out an astrologer who does chart rectification. We recommend Braden Diotte. Steven's ex-wife, Jodie Forrest, also has a Chart Rectification service. It is a good idea to explore every other possibility first (relatives' memories, baby books, relatives' diaries, hospital records, etc.) to verify your birth time or at least get a ballpark figure for it. Why? Because rectification isn't foolproof, and because its accuracy will vary with the time frame within which you were born. What does that mean? For example, if you know you were born between noon and 2 p.m., the rectification will probably be more accurate than if you know you were born between noon and 4 p.m. Still, sometimes finding a birth time is impossible. If you've tried everything with no success, a good rectifier can "work backwards" through astrology's predictive techniques to find a chart that would have accurately predicted the timing of various biographical events. Before you contact someone, make a list of at least two dozen emotionally or developmentally significant dates in your life, along with brief descriptions of them--"got married," for example.

Will Seven Paws Press publish my manuscript?

Possibly! We are currently booked through Spring of 2016 for new projects. But if you have something in the works, feel free to contact Tony at our business address listed above.

Why is your press called Seven Paws Press?

The inspiration for the business name came from Steven's cats. Steven once had two cats, one of which was a spoiled, affectionate, three-legged, one-eared, talkative Wise Elder Cat named Vincent, who will probably be human in his next lifetime. He left this world on July 29, 2000, and will be missed. Rest in peace, Vincent the Cat.

Why did Steven Forrest and Jeffrey Wolf Green once call themselves "The Pluto Brothers"?

Steven and Jeffrey both wrote books about Pluto before they began teaching together. After working together, they also co-authored two astrology books (which are now out of print): Measuring the Night: Evolutionary Astrology and the Keys to the Soul, Volume 1 and Volume 2, based on a series of lectures they gave together.
