One of the biggest challenges for astrologers is finding the balance between fate and free will. An ancient tenant of astrology is, "The stars dispose; they do not compel." We're influenced by our charts and by the astrological energies, but we also choose our own paths. This is easy enough to incorporate when interpreting natal charts, but harder to reconcile when working with predictive astrology. After all, predictive astrology is supposed to predict the future. At least that's what I believed back in 2014 when I was preparing to teach the first Online Predictive Astrology Class.
