History and observations- this patient had major traumatic experiences while she was a teenager, her uncle raped her and her family never believed her about such claims. Her family decided to stop talking to her because they thought that she was not a “good person”; therefore, she started abusing drugs and hanging out with people who did not have her best interest, so she ended up in jail with a misdemeanor. However, whenever she met her husband, she was sure to start a fresh beginning, but something was always “bothering” her. She has been struggling with significant feelings of worthlessness and shame due to her past experiences and the inability to have a relationship with her family.
“Penn and Teller” conducted an experiment that measured the satisfaction of a personality description that was written out for every individual in a classroom. The general response was that of a positive reaction to the description, meaning that majority of the students deemed their report to be fair and relatively reflective of their personality. The professor then revealed to the class that each student had received the same description with no variation whatsoever. This experiment exposes modern astrology and horoscope work for what it really is. A large blanket personality statement that majority of the population will accept as true. Modern astrology will take a generalization and dole it out to any uneducated reader of a gossip column or newspaper. The reader is amazed by the accuracy and continues to buy into the concept of astrology.

3 Reasons For conflicting astrological implications In the event that you have been in a quandary and swung to a psychic advisor for guidance, vision or only an agreeable, encouraging voice, you may have delighted in the experience enough to attempt it once more. On the off chance that you talked with an alternate individual, the chance that you're getting a conflicting reading is very conceivable. There is a genuine chance that your reading may be entirely distinctive. On the off chance that there is one future, by what means can two psychic readings have varying results?

Authentic Christian spiritual formation that produces the character of Christ within an individual may be the best way of enhancing the common factors within a counselor and facilitating an effective therapeutic relationship (Clinton & Ohlschlager, 2015, p.188). The number one factor for Christian counselors is to have a right relationship with God, depending on Him in all areas of one’s life.
