Frequently asked questions
I'm not at all like my zodiac sign. Does astrology work?
What most people know as their "zodiac sign" only represents where the Sun was positioned on the day they were born. More integral to who we know ourselves to be is actually the Moon sign, as well as the Rising sign (also called the Ascendant). The position of Mercury, Venus, and Mars define key features of our personality. The Moon's nodes, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and especially Pluto, all work together to indicate our true potentials in this life and where we are most called to evolve.
A session with Chart Life covers a lot more than just the Sun sign. For example, if you are a Scorpio who has never fit the pop astrology description of a Scorpio, rest assured there are many more layers to discover through a deep interpretation of your whole birth chart.
What's the difference between a Relationship reading and two Individual readings?
In a Relationship reading we discuss a different set of charts from the individual charts. These indicate in great detail how the people react to each other and the main themes that come out as the personalities blend. Sometimes how we blend produces surprising results! Relationship charts are extremely powerful and carry strong predictive qualities.
Can I ask about a relationship in my Individual reading?
Yes. At the end of the reading, the astrologer is happy to briefly address an important relationship. Birth details (date and location, at a minimum) must be provided in advance.
Do you teach astrology?
Not yet. De Rui is in the process of putting together instructional material. Please leave your contact info at email@example.com if you would like to know when classes become available.
In Covid times is it possible to have the reading face-to-face?
Yes, as long as you have not traveled in the past 21 days, nor have you been in contact with someone who has traveled in that time period. Chart Life sessions are held at a discreet and comfortable location in Central, Hong Kong Island.
De Rui also connects regularly with clients around the world via Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, WeChat, FaceTime, Microsoft Teams, and any number of conferencing tools.
How often should I consult an astrologer?
Consult twice a month via a Chart Life Membership if you wish to know, in advance, when cosmic forces are likely to present as ease or as challenge. This is particularly good for timing actions and intentions to be in better flow with the Universe. Relationships under stress also benefit from bi-monthly sessions.
I don't know my birth time. Can I still book a reading?
It is very difficult to get a good reading without a birth time, although certain relationship dynamics can still be visible and quite useful to know. If you proceed with a Relationship reading, understand that it will be a partial reading.
I'm in need of guidance but can't afford your rates. Can you help me?
Yes. A lack of financial resources does not preclude you from receiving the important messages in your birth chart. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
