Here is what I see happening with people who are stuck in this mode:
- In normal life, when people have a problem, they try to solve it. If it’s an easy problem, they’ll solve it in a day. If it’s a bigger problem, it may take weeks or months. If it’s one of those really challenging issues from your childhood, etc., you may lean into it for a long time: work on it, get some help, take a break, work on it some more. This is same with work projects, artistic creation, writing and health improvement.
- In astrology, people see a problem in their chart, and they say “that’s terrible, I have XXX square ZZZ!!!! I’m finished. My life sucks.”
No you aren’t doomed, and your life doesn’t have to suck. If a horoscope shows some challenges, they are something to know about and work on. The horoscope may even show a partial solution to your dilemma (Saturn means delay and blockage, but also maturity and wisdom.)
I want to see fatalism eradicated from astrology. Astrology mirrors the pattern of life development, and life is basically about growing through finding and solving problems.
