An astrologer is one who practices astrology. The term is usually reserved for individuals who read charts for clients, although astrological researchers can appropriately
claim the title. Because astrology is not accepted as a legitimate profession by the larger society, there presently exists no officially recognized agencies for training, testing, and certifying astrologers. While various astrological societies have established tests of astrological competence and informal certifications recognizing such skills, the nonoffi-cial status of these examinations makes them largely ineffective for regulating the field.
