The cost of astrology is a big topic of conversation around Australia.
A recent report found astrology has a cost of $1.8 billion in Australia annually.
There are many reasons why we don’t pay as much as some other countries, but the reality is that there is a lot of cost associated with astrology.
A new study from University of Adelaide found there were around $3 billion in costs associated with using astrology in Australia.
“Astrology costs money in terms of staffing, consulting fees, and travel,” Associate Professor Robert Kynaston from the School of Business said.
“And it’s also expensive in terms a supply chain, and that’s an issue in Australia as well.”
Astrology is not cheap for a lot different reasons.
“For one, the cost of training and maintaining a full-time astrologer is a significant investment,” Professor Kynastons said.
“[Astrology] is expensive to run, because it requires people to train to perform the astrological work.”
The main reason for the cost is that it requires the astrologers to spend time and money in the country.
Astrology does not just work at a physical location, but also within the mental realm.
“If you’re in the mental world, the astrology takes time to train,” Associate Prof Kynastsons said, “so you have to train your astrologian in the physical world, which takes longer.”
You have to spend more time and resources on the astral realm, and this is not something that astrology teaches very well,” Associate Vice-Chancellor for Research and Teaching, Dr Rebecca Hynes, said.
The most common cost associated is time. “
It’s not just a physical cost, but a psychological one as well, as astrologing requires a lot more self-awareness and self-esteem,” Associate Dean of Students, Dr Jessica O’Brien, said, adding that some astrologors could even feel ashamed about their profession.
The most common cost associated is time.
“Many astrologists spend months or years to train for an astrology, and so there is an emotional cost associated to that,” Associate Research Professor O’Byrne said.
The cost for this time is not always paid, and it’s not always covered by insurance.
“So in some cases, people may feel ashamed of their profession, or may even feel a bit ashamed of what they’re doing,” Associate Provost for Research, Professor David O’Sullivan said.
