Continuing regarding The Limitations of Astrology.
“I guess what I am asking are there those astrologers who say they can determine what one’s life circumstances were/are from their chart, or simply what their personality tendencies are?”
There are astrologers who claim all kinds of things I guess.I hear astrologers say, “your mother was blah blah” and the like. They are completely wrong. The repeat something they read in book which had no relevance to real life.
There’s a built in limitation in that the astrologer is only going to be able to think of so many possible manifestations of how an aspect might play. Let’s say they are ultra bright and could think of 100 ways. That would still leave an unlimited number of things they did not think of so how in the world are they going to be able to tell you about your mother?
Saturn is conjunct your Moon. Does this mean your mother was cold… or old?
Maybe she died and you were deprived of a mother.
Maybe she was a captain of industry, an accomplished woman in a position of authority.
Maybe she beat you with a switch.
Maybe she was depressed or she might have home schooled you.
Maybe she was crippled or a Capricorn or a famous rock climber.
You get the idea.
There are 11 guesses and I could give you 99 more in fifteen minutes time but it makes a lot more sense for me to just ask you, “What was your mother like?”
People and their lives are complex. It just makes no sense to guess things when the person who knows is right there in front of you and I’ll you how this manifests:
The budding astrologer has a problem with her boyfriend, so she looks at Moon Saturn in his chart and says, “Ah, well! It says here that his mother was cold,” and off she goes on the trail of delusion.
You are supposed to count the legs on that elephant…
