Before a birth chart can be assessed it has to be calculated and prior to computer calculated charts most people couldn’t do the calculations.
The custom was for those who could to become professional astrologers or teachers.

Elbert knew that the best person to understand the encrypted astrological messages written in your birth chart was you.
He wanted you to personally access the information contained in your chart.
He didn’t want you believing what others thought.
He wanted you to do your own thinking.
Hermetic astrology is self-science
Elbert knew that the data contained in your birth chart was meant for an audience of one.
And now in the age of computer technology you have easy access to a computer calculated birth chart and the astro-data it contains.

Science – or another person – can’t study or scrutinize your subjective states of mind.
