Wich Chinese word to use for a Western astrologer? I found four words in an online dictionary (占星师, 占星家, 星相师 and 星命家), and one more (星占学家) in a printed one, but which one to use to refer to someone who practises classical Western astrology, not Chinese astrology?

Actually, those you've mentioned above are OK, but I think 占星师 is better. In Chinese, we have other sayings, like 相命家 or 堪舆学家.

Well,the four words are the same .They reffer to neither western nor Chinese.

I do not know 占星师 exactly. I know "算命的人"
