Context Is Everything

Some clients confuse astrologers and psychics. They assume, once they give us their birth details, we’ll know everything there is to know about them as individuals.

Astrology doesn’t work that way. It’s not a crystal ball.

I can tell you, with near certainty, you have one or more “astrological twins” in the world. Somewhere there are people with birth charts so similar to yours, it makes no practical difference at all. Their lives, also with near certainty, will be very different from yours. The contexts in which your life and theirs unfold will be different.

Another way to think about this, is multiple births. Twins, triplets, etc. They’ll share the same horoscope, except for a degree or two difference on the angles. Do they lead identical lives? No. The contexts of their lives differ.

Horoscopes represent contingent possibilities. Most of the features in our horoscopes become manifest at some point in our lives, as features of our personality, events in our lives, etc. Some, however, do not.

Context is important. While astrological influences are powerful,  they’re not the only factors that shape our choices and what happens to us. There’s genetics, family dynamics, culture, etc. These also shape our choices and what happens to us.

Astrology should always relate to the reality of the client. Context always matters.
