How are long does it take from purchasing a reading to having an appointment? Usually readings are scheduled approximately two to three weeks from the time of purchase. If there is a time constraint we almost always can work with you to get the reading earlier.
How do I prepare for the reading? The only information we need is place, date and time of birth for most readings. For horary reading we need the question(s) and for the election reading what you are considering beginning. If you have very specific areas of your life you would like to focus on then that can also be included in your correspondence and we will make sure to address that issue more closely in the reading.
Is there a difference between an in person reading or a reading by phone or Skype? No there is no difference between these formats except being physically present.
What is the difference between traditional and modern astrology? Traditional astrology uses techniques that have been tested and discussed for thousands of years, in many cases since the dawn of astrology. Modern astrology began with Alan Leo in the beginning of the 20th century and favored character analysis as well theosophical beliefs. For much of the 20th century astrology did not have the translations or understanding of many classical texts and developed theories often based on whatever current popular psychological, cultural and spiritual beliefs were happening in various decades. These texts have been and are being translated now bringing the traditional theories and methods back into the astrological world. At Sky Mandala we believe through our research that these methods offer greater focus and efficacy then modern systems alone.
