Fatalism (a.k.a. Stupid Astrology)

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.

  1. Frankly Fatalism period should be eradicated from most professions and activities. At it’s core Fatalism is nothing but that one guy who complains “This is impossible, what’s the point?” and make everyone feels like crap. Fatalism is in itself an idiotic, self-destructive, and frankly macabre mindset to have. It offers nothing remotely constructive or helpful, all it does is give people the excuse to lounge around and act depressed because everything is ‘pointless’ or ‘impossible’.

    More positive mindsets encourage you to not necessarily believe in the impossible, but constantly question what is possible and to constantly experiment and work towards what other people previously thought was unreachable. Optimism is always better, because it makes you try and gives you a chance to succeed where others would just give up.

  2. This is the passionate and principled approach to astrological things that I, for one, EXPECT from the New Age.
