Some people who have not examined astrology oppose it because they think it limits our capacity for choice in life. This is far from true. Astrology does provide a perspective, a frame of reference, which reflects the capacities of an individual. But, it is up to each of us to choose how we use these capacities. Astrology’s ability to provide meaningful information about our potentials can be used to make productive choices, not to limit them. Without some awareness of who we really are we are not choosing, we are simply reacting. An intelligent use of astrology also includes all other sources of information (and inspiration) in making life choices.
