How can I get an astrological reading?
Please be certain of the accuracy of your birth data! If you've made a mistake and need the chart re-done, we'll have to charge you the full price for the corrected order, unless of course, the birth data error was ours.
Please do not adjust the birthtime for
war time if you think it was in effect. We have sophisticated
atlases that will do any such adjustment for you, so please just give
the birth time exactly as it was stated on the birth certificate or
record, or exactly as it was given to you by your parents, without your
adjusting it in any way.
How long does it take to get a reading?
Isn't there anything faster?
Forrest Astrology offers computerized astrology reports, personalized for your birth data. Data from the reports was written by Steven Forrest. We email the reports generally within 24 hours. The turnaround time on mailed versions is two to five business days.
I don't want to wait. Can you refer me to an astrologer in my area?
1. Visit our Directory of Astrologers Trained by Steven Forrest.

Where is my order? Shouldn't it have arrived by now?

For other orders, the transit time may depend on how it was shipped. CD and Book orders will be shipped separately as they are shipped from different locations.

Can I get a copy of my birthchart with no interpretation?
Can I get a reading by telephone?
Steven does not give telephone readings, but many of the astrologers in our directory do.
What is Astro*Carto*Graphy?
It's a branch of astrology developed by the late Jim Lewis, which examines how going to or living in a different geographic location can affect your expression of your birthchart.
I've heard there's a kind of astrology that can help you decide what places in the country or overseas are best for you to live. What's that about?
Can you help me pick a good wedding date?
Indeed we can, by using Electional Astrology--and a good date to open a business or move or apply for a job, etc. Anything that has a beginning has a birthchart. See our readings page for details.
Can astrology answer specific questions?
Sometimes! That's Horary Astrology. See our readings page.

I'd like to set up my own astrological practice. Do you have any advice?
First, read Robert Blaschke's A HANDBOOK FOR THE SELF-EMPLOYED ASTROLOGER. This practical handbook for self-employed astrologers will address all of your concerns: transitioning from a student to a professional; establishing a professional practice; handling income, expenses and taxes; marketing and advertising; navigating the client relationship; teaching and local public speaking; writing, publishing and lecture travel; participating in the astrological community; overcoming occupational hazards; fostering personal and spiritual growth; notes for astrologers in the UK and Australia; and more.
How important is it to give you my correct birthtime?
VERY IMPORTANT!!! Sometimes even five minutes can make a significant difference in a birthchart. Please be certain of the accuracy of your birth data.
How can I find my birthtime?
In the US, sometimes the state recorded the time, even if it isn't on the birth certificate. Visit our Where to Order Birth Certificates page for details. That page also has some information for Europe; scroll down to the end of the page. If you're adopted and all you want to know is your birthtime, the Internet itself is a great source of information. Google "adoptee information" or something similar, and see what you can locate.
What if I still can't find my birthtime?
Astrologer Jodie Tighe has a CHART RECTIFICATION SERVICE. First, Jodie encourages you to explore every other possibility (relatives' memories, baby books, relatives' diaries, hospital records, etc.) to verify your birth time or at least get a ballpark figure for it. Why? Because rectification may not be accurate, and because its accuracy will vary with the time frame within which you were born. What does that mean? For example, if you know you were born between noon and 2 p.m., the rectification will probably be more accurate than if you know you were born between noon and 4 p.m. Still, sometimes finding a birthtime is impossible. If you've tried everything with no success, Jodie can "work backwards" through astrology's predictive techniques to find a chart that would have accurately predicted the timing of various biographical events. She'll need a list of at least two dozen emotionally or developmentally significant dates in your life, along with brief descriptions of them--"got married," for example.
Will Seven Paws Press publish my manuscript?
Why is your press called Seven Paws Press?
For its Feline Overseers! Steven had a spoiled, affectionate, three-legged, one-eared, talkative Wise Elder Cat named Vincent, who will probably be human in his next lifetime. He left this world on July 29, 2000, and will be missed. Rest in peace, Vincent the Cat.
Why do Steven Forrest and Jeffrey Wolf Green call themselves "The Pluto Brothers"?
Because they co-authored two books about astrology (which are now out of print): Measuring the Night: Evolutionary Astrology and the Keys to the Soul, Volume 1 and Volume 2, based on a series of lectures they gave together. To learn more read Hadley Fitzgerald's interview with Steven and Jeffrey, "The Pluto Brothers Measure the Night"
I want to communicate something about your website.
I didn't find the answer to my question here.
The Lunar Phases
The lunar phases are curiously marginalized in astrological practice. How is a Full Moon in Gemini different from a crescent Moon in the same sign? What about waxing versus waning? Based on The Book of the Moon, this lecture introduces an eight-phase interpretation of the lunar cycle based on the Pagan calendar of solstices, equinoxes, and cross-quarter days.
