Members of the Association
agree to observe the following criteria in the undertaking
of all their astrological work:
(a) To respect the dignity and worth of every human being and
their right to self-determination. To accept a responsibility to
encourage and facilitate the self-development of the client,
whilst having due regard for the interests and rights of others.
(b) To preserve the confidentiality and anonymity of a client
and all material relating to a client. To take great care in the
publication or presentation of case material and to maintain
that anonymity unless the client otherwise agrees.
(c) To ensure that a client is made fully aware of the method of
working, the duration and nature of the consultation(s) and the
fees involved before any work is undertaken.
(d) To ensure that potential clients, whose needs are beyond the
competence of an individual astrologer, are referred to
appropriate individuals or agencies.
(e) To refrain from offering any medical, legal or financial
advice to a client on astrological grounds unless the
appropriate skills or qualifications have been obtained.
(f) To refrain from making public comments or predictions on the
personal or emotional life of public figures or on the state of
their health. Any comments on public figures should be concerned
solely with the role for which they are known, and should not be
made in a manner likely to bring astrology or the Association
(g) To maintain the highest standards in all dealings with
clients, and to refrain from behaviour likely to bring astrology
or the Association into disrepute.
