My trip to India was something I was hugely excited about. It was a high point in my career as a 'young' astrologer. And true to expectations, I had an unforgettable experience which profoundly impacted me and the way that I practice astrology.

Sadly it wasn't a moment of enlightenment in the typical sense through detox and meditation. 

Instead, I found myself at the mercy of the unwanted advances of a fellow 'professional' astrologer.

This experience taught me first-hand exactly how important it is to engage with your client on a professional level, and the damage you can inflict on an individual if you aren't aware of your own projections or agenda when entering the client-therapist interaction which is exactly what happens when you have a reading with an astrologer (whether you realise it or not).

I decided to share what happened to me in India hoping to raise awareness to the problems that can occur when professional and ethical standards aren't adhered to.

I hope none of you have ever experienced anything like this, but hopefully sharing my story will help you feel able to speak your truth, should you ever need to. Please share your stories of bad practice with me if you’ve ever heard or witnessed it!
