An astrologer provides advice to people on what to expect in the future based on a birth date and through interpretation of celestial bodies at birth and their placements at the time of the event. Astrologers make predictions to how the "stars" influence a person’s personality and the choices they make throughout life. 

An astrologer would normally charge for their services providing advice and guidance to clients on a range of personal life issues, namely in the areas of romance, relationships, employment and personal finance.

An astrologer usually begins the process of assessment by plotting the client’s place of birth using longitude and latitude noting this on a chart commonly known as an astrological wheel.
