Confession: I’m an astrologer and I hate making predictions. (a.k.a. Meta-Musings on Astrology)
Astrology is a powerful tool that tells us how to navigate the flow of energy within our lives, and as they connect with the wider Cosmos.
Where you go in that flow is up to you,
What choices you make is up to you,
What life you lead, again, is up to you.
It’s a roadmap, it doesn’t tell you whether you’ll get there. It shows you the best route you can take. You still need to go on the journey though.
When I get the following questions –
Will I get married?
Will I get that job?
Will I find my soulmate and live happily ever?
and so on…
I just say I’m not that kind of astrologer…
What I can tell you when there’s a stronger chance of that happening and what you need to do to bring that flow of energy into your life/chart/being.
But I can’t tell you for sure. Well, I certainly won’t pretend to.
For the more I look I into the discipline, the more variables I see. And many of them tell me that there’s just so much we cannot predict. General themes yes, but there’s always that wildcard.
And, with the rate of current spiritual evolution/acceleration, those wildcards keep popping up!
From a philosophical perspective, I see that:
Human life, in its infinitely rich tapestry of forms, experiences, joys and losses – needs – to some extent, to remain Unknown; for it to have the meaning, power and significance that it does.
If astrology could tell us every single thing about the shape our lives will take – if it was all already known in advance (to the human self/mind/consciousness) – what would be the point of doing it?
If all was already known, what then (illusion or reality of) Purpose can we reasonably assume to have? Or even of Free Will?
These are things too precious to lose for the sake of finding certainty.
At least, that’s my take on it. Other astrologers will have different views on the matter, and that is cool too.
