The International Academy of Astrology Ethical Credo
- I dedicate myself to the highest astrological standards in my relationships with clients, the astrological
community and the community at large. Further, I will refrain from any communication and/or behavior which might
bring disrepute to IAA specifically and Astrology in general.
- I dedicate myself to holding in the highest regard the individual power of my clients to determine their
own path. I recognize that this means valuing the rights, wellbeing, dignity and worth of said clients as I
do my own. I further recognize that this entails empowering the client in all ways to make their own decisions.
I take active steps to ensure that the relationship between me and my clients remains open, balanced and non-dependent.
- I dedicate myself to holding in the highest regard the appropriate confidentiality of all my clients. I recognize
the importance of anonymity in the writing and the speaking of specific case material and always respect this
anonymity. I further recognize the importance of security and safety of personal records, whether these be written,
taped or electronically stored.
- I dedicate myself to open communication with all clients regarding fees and services in advance of any work done.
I recognize that this entails informed consent on the part of the client for said work.
- I dedicate myself to holding the clients interests and well-being above my own needs for monetary profit.
I recognize that requires a careful ethical scrutiny regarding the promotion of my own services and products
to my clients.
- I dedicate myself to the highest respect for my own capabilities and their limits. I recognize that this means
informing the client as soon as I recognize that the work required exceeds my qualifications and training. I further
recognize my responsibility to refer the client to qualified professionals.
- I dedicate myself to the highest respect for the archetypal power of astrology and I commit myself to ensuring
that the client never confuses that power with my own person or capabilities.
- I dedicate myself to the highest respect for the public at large. I recognize that this entails completely
accurate advertising of my own abilities and services. I further recognize that any predictive work entails precise
communication of the variability of mundane events.
- I dedicate myself to the highest respect for my colleagues and the powerful diversity of astrology itself.
I recognize that this entails clear definitions of personal perspective in all communication.
