"Jenny, I don't know if Momma was right or if, if it's Lieutenant Dan. I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it's both. Maybe both is happening at the same time." the character of Forrest from the movie: Forrest Gump

How Fated Is The Future

For astrologers, "how fated is the future" seems to be the one question underlying virtually every other question that clients ask us on a daily basis.

Truth is… both when wearing my spiffy professional astrologer’s hat and when living out my everyday personal life as an inhabitant of our planet… "how fated is the future" is a question that I find myself continually re-examining and re-evaluating, yet never quite coming up with a "perfect" answer.

I imagine that I shouldn’t have revealed that to you, since we astrologers are, after all, supposed to be privy to all of the many vast secrets of the universe.

"How fated is the future" is ultimately an unanswerable question… whether the question is asked on a global scale, facing fears on a critical new health issue such as MRSA infections – or whether we’re knee deep in facing our own individual tragedies and/or misfortunes.

A while back, I wrote an article, "Search For Meaning," referring to what seems to be an all too clear stark reality of life – that, for purposes of the unfolding of soul, much of our lives are meant to be spent living in and dealing with emotional swamplands. (Granted, the article did not meet with everyone’s approval.)

Life On Our Planet
Just how fated is the future? Philosophers, whether ancient or modern, have all faced the angst-ridden reality that, for most of us, our life experiences are full of unexpected, unwanted, and uninvited twists and turns. Life on our planet is a mishmash of the good, the bad, and the ugly.

The only real question boils down to: "does this mishmash have meaning and purpose or is this mishmash random and arbitrary." "How fated is the future" is an important question that each individual on the planet must eventually ask and come to grips with for him or herself.

In this series of articles on "Fate and Astrology," you’re unfortunately going to discover that I'm much better at asking hard questions than I am at providing easy answers.

The spine-tingling fear that I had in committing myself to this series of articles on "fate and astrology" was that I had absolutely no clue about where or what direction I was headed.

I simply woke up one morning and knew it was time for me to personally revisit the question – and then thought that it might be interesting to take you along to share in a small part of my personal journey.
