Pagan professionals and business owners, I have questions for you

I’m working on a business article, and I am looking for people to help me round it out.  Specifically, I would like to talk to Pagans who own a business or practice which has broad appeal outside the Pagan community.  I have talked to a lot of people who market products or services largely to the Pagan community, from Reiki-infused massage and runic divination to crafted and blessed ritual tools.  I’m now looking to talk to Pagan accounts, lawyers, mechanics, electricians, restaurateurs, landscapers, and doctors whose products and services are of general interest beyond our corner of the world.

This is for an article, but I will associate your responses with the name you provide, so make sure you spell it correctly.

Hey you astrologers! I need you!

I’m readying myself to write an article on an astrological topic, and I’d like to talk to some Pagans who do this professionally or semi-professionally.  If you get paid for astrological readings, and write about the topic for a site or publication that you don’t also run, I have a couple of questions for you.

Help me if you’ve been depressed

After sharing my views on depression, I started wondering about how people apply their religious symbols to the problem, for a story at The Wild Hunt.  I have been introduced to several professionals in the mental health field who may speak to me on the subject, but I’m also interested in what self-care techniques depressed Pagans and polytheists of all stripes use to try to manage the condition.

What are the religious (including magical, if that’s part of your religion) symbols, techniques, practices, or beliefs that you use to manage depression?  How successful have they been?
