Elena asks: “How do you deal with your chart, Elsa? Do you accept it a fate? A problem to be worked out?
HI, Elena. I don’t deal my chart. I deal with my life and astrology helps. I never look at anything in my chart and think, oh that’s a problem. I don’t understand people who do.
It’s very common, someone will be going off on something in their chart, an aspect or a transit coming up and invariably they will be asking what it is going to do to them. What doom does this portend?
And I will tell you the truth even though it’s embarrassing. When I come across something like this John Prine’s song, “Dear Abby” plays in my head.
Prine sings (in Dear Abby’s voice):
“Bewildered, bewildered, You have no complaint
You are what your are and you ain’t what you ain’t
So listen up buster, and listen up good
Stop wishing for bad luck and knocking on wood…”
I think people take astrology and look for problems they’re not even having. I don’t operate like that. For me, it’s life first, astrology second.
There’s no way I going to spend time looking for the doom in my chart. Astrology should help solve problems, not create them.
How do you use astrology in everyday life?
