I follow the Organization for Professional Astrology’s (OPA) Code of Ethics and include:
I will serve the best interests of my clients, conducting my professional activities without causing or intending to cause harm.
I will treat all my clients with equal respect, regardless of their origin, race, religion, gender, age, or sexual preference.
I will recommend clients consult a licensed professional for advice of a legal, financial, medical, or psychological nature that I am not qualified to provide.
I will recommend another astrologer if questions are outside the scope of my expertise.
I will keep confidential the names of clients and all information shared or discussed during readings, unless otherwise requested by the client or required by a court of law.
To protect the privacy of others, I will not interpret a third party’s birth chart without permission of the third party.
I will discuss and agree upon all fees (if any) with my clients in advance. Should a client wish to proceed beyond the originally agreed arrangement, all additional fees (if any) will be discussed and agreed upon by both parties before proceeding.
I honor and respect my astrological colleagues, mentors and teachers.
The astral planes reveal a logic
To which nature fully resonates and aligns
If few are initiated in this art of interpretation
Of celestial science with existential meaning
I am one
I recognize the privilege and responsibility
To serve humanity as an astrologer
Remain grounded, clear of prejudice, and open hearted
Respectfully, gracefully, and truthfully
I pledge to assist those who seek higher guidance
Direct them to the space, the time, and the way
As depicted in the map of geocosmic cycles
I will enlighten them in the perspective
That despite trials and tribulations,
Their lives are intrinsic to an intelligent cosmic order
These suggestions shall be made
To the best of my humble understanding
Whether venerated or depreciated publicly in this task
I shall not falter, aware of the merit of this honorable calling
