FAQ 40


I make a living as an astrologer, with my body not in good condition. The company I work for places me on the market as a psychic astrologer. But to be honest, I’m not a psychic at all. All I have is a vision which occurs to me and a flash of inspiration. I’m doing my business to my clients happy treasuring every meeting, and I try to make them realize their good points and not to make them depend on astrology. I have read about astrology in your blog many times. Though I’m still doing this business for money, I have begun to feel guilty recently. I, serious in character, have been in pain whether I should go on this job or not, thinking I might be playing a psychic.

At first I began to work here part time as a side business, but one day I was seized with a serious illness and entered the hospital. And because of this I was not able to continue my regular business, and I had to earn a living as an astrologer. I have once believed this job to be my calling, shamefully enough. In my case, nothing occurs to me unless I think I wanna make people happy. So I’ve been doing this business with compassion in my mind. Do you think I’ve been troubled because my inner god tells me to quit this job?

You’re analyzing yourself correctly and realizing your present situations. As long as you work against your conscience, such anxiety will never disappear. While you have a feeling of wrongness according to your conscience, or an inner god, you won’t lead your clients in the wrong direction. So search for another job while you work as an astrologer for the time being.

Should you feel any guilty about the job out of conscience, it means your inner god has hidden itself. To earn money as a psychic or an astrologer is to live selling your soul to demons, in which case you soul is to be dragged into the World of Demons after you die. If you live a short life easily doing a cushy job in this world, a long pain awaits you in the the world to come. Why don’t you get some qualification before you lose your conscience?
