This was adapted by Astrologers based upon the Hippocratic Oath that physicians take. These are ideals that are held in high regard, and it would be worth modeling our behavior after.
Please take the time to consider this message.
I will not give "readings", "tell fortunes", or make predictions to satisfy the morbid cravings of the curious, nor will I seek to astound or mystify; but will give consultations only to those who have a problem regarding which they know they need help and seek it; and instead of prophesying a prognosis, I will endeavor to instill the right thinking that will contribute to avoiding or mitigating an unfavorable condition which I see in operation., interpreting such in terms of influences rather than of events, and at all times teaching a philosophy of Free Will and emotional self-control that is the antithesis of Fatalism and Predestination.
I will not give counsel contrived to assist any person in working injury or taking unfair advantage of another.
I will never make an utterance or inference that will reflect in any degree upon any other practitioner; nor will I treat a client of another practitioner, except as called in consultation by such practitioner.
I will never relax in my efforts to add to my knowledge of the science, to impart it to such as I deem worthy to follow in my footsteps, and to devote my effort without stint toward the improving of human understandings and personal relationships, and in rendering service to humanity and society.
And may the Creator who placed the planets in their orbits as His means of guiding the Destinies of men, preserve and sustain me in proportion to the fidelity with which I exemplify the laws I am ordained to teach.
