Perhaps, it may be helpful for the "Soul Searching Forum" to create a "sticky" thread to help inform all seeking and performing Astrological services via "Soul Searching Forum".  The goal is to set expectations, and some guidelines.  Here's a draft to get us started... we may trash the whole thing,... or maybe someone has already completed this and I missed it...   Please, help us build this... Thanks. 

Guidelines (and Expectations) for Astrological Postings. (DRAFT)

The internet is a wonderful tool for building friendships, acquantances, and social networks -- yet just like face to face interactions, it's best to set expectations from the beginning -- for we little humans are very complex...   Anyways, some thoughts to consider...

The energy put into Astrological interpretations by the "public community" of "Soul Searching Forum" astrologers may be a significant investment of time and energy -- by Astrologers and person(s) requesting interpretations.     ***** Therefore, it is NOT the intent for posts to be used as a "temporary" holding place, only to be deleted upon completion of Astrological discussions. *****    If there is a perception that discussion is "too personal", please, consider a private message to "work out" any "maintenance" or "cleanup" of the threads.   Please, attempt to keep the essence of the thread "alive" and "un-fragmented".

Please, consider from the beginning of any Astrological posts / requests how information (i.e. - natal chart, interpretations, feedback) may be publicly viewable on the "Soul Searching Forum".    To perform Astrological interpretations require "personal" information (charts, feedback, etc.) to be shared with Astrologers, (yet it will be viewable by ALL).   Ideally, charts will contain only first or even psuedo name(s) to help with privacy concerns.  Please, understand that anonymity is not entirely ensured, as over time by reviewing posts someone may (or not) be able to reconstruct the identity of a poster.  This is not to be alarmist, but to let us consider the concept of "privacy" or "lack of privacy".   

Ideally, a post will remain on the site, for all "Soul Searching Forum" members to consider and learn.   These posts are real-life examples that members may use for learning and reflection.   Just as we learn from our personal interactions with co-workers, blogs, posts, the astrological is a great opportunity to consider "archetypes", the "dynamo" of the "stars", our "mortal earthly shell", karma, and beyond.

So, prior to posting a Natal Chart, consider whether this public forum is the right match, or if you would prefer to have a "private" analysis.   A "private" analysis may (or not) be more appropriate.   If a private interpretation is desired, consider reaching out to one of the Astrologers on "Soul Searching Forum" for their services -- (and be courteous, grateful, and consider compensation for their time and energy.)

Nomaste your guidlines are very helpful. Thank You so much for taking the time to help eliminate future problems and to clarify our position on this important matter. It would be very difficult to do charts without the date, time of birth and place. These factors should not be 'hidden'. The accuracy of such events and charts can be corrected and obseved if need be.  If they need to be 'hidden' then those wanting a chart reading should consider personal and private readings with compensation.

Yes. I've corrected the DRAFT by removing date, etc. -- basically, now just suggest put in first name, or pseudo-name...
