Philosophies behind Astrology Learning astrology is similar to learning a new language. There are weird symbols and words like Jupiter, trine, Capricorn, and so on. Studying astrology means studying the letters of this new alphabet. You must learn to put them together as words, phrases and sentences. And when you have the ability to look at a birth chart and see various sentences joined together, then you are about to fully understand that birth chart at its heart. However, behind beyond this structural appreciation is a deeper plane that makes up the nucleus of astrology: your philosophy. Yes, your own philosophies and views will condition your understanding of astrology, as well as how you use it. Fatalistic Astrology

Fatalism is one approach to astrology that is very traditional and fate-centric. Everything is understood as predestined, and the core belief is that we are not free to choose and take charge of our own lives. Astrologers who use this approach are those who foretell particular events and advise people on how to live their lives.

Humanistic Astrology Humanism is a more modern and choice-centric approach to astrology. The belief here is that within each of us is a creative force seeking to be expressed. This world view thus recognizes us as co-creators of our own destiny. It is not a toss between free will and destiny, but rather a combination of both. The birth chart is seen as a tool that can help us to know ourselves better, identify our strong and weak points, and ultimately to transform ourselves into self-harmonious beings. According to humanistic astrologers, the birth chart’s purpose is to help us understand ourselves better, allowing us to see and express our highest potential. We must work with the chart-identified problem areas until we are able to overcome them. This means that we should not take our problems as destiny, but we should use our awareness of them to defeat them and most importantly, to learn from them. Many humanistic astrologers also believe in karma and reincarnation. According to the philosophy of reincarnation, we all have a spiritual essence or soul that continues on after our death, and incarnates in various physical bodies in various lives. The purpose is to gives us the opportunity to learn different lessons by experience, and to slowly achieve perfection or wholeness. Karma tells us that we are responsible for what we do. Anything we do returns to us. These things describe the ancient doctrine of karma. However, we are not obliged to believe in karma or reincarnation. This same concept may be explainable through genetic predisposition or biological inheritance.
