Re: Accurate Astrologer to consult
I don't want to derail but if you think about it, the reason astrology is even taken seriously at all is due to the fatalist aspect of it. After all, if people truly had free will, astrology would be absolutely worthless. Plus you have to think about it logically. If free will were an absolute concept, pretty much all the laws of physics, push and pull, cause and effect would thrown out the window. When I make a decision, it just doesn't pop into some existence from some conscious void. There is always causality there. There are environmental factors, genetic factors, psychological factors that are all influenced previously by other factors, ad infinitum all the way to the big bang. So when you look back on all of it, can't you just say that it all just followed a straight line towards a destination afterall? Unless some Heisenberg variable was present that threw everything off, this would seem to be true, and it's pretty much how people are able to predict almost everything, from weather, population systems, psychology, astronomical events, etc. And I would argue the same would be true for astrology. The only thing that wouldn't make it accurate was the aforementioned Heisenberg variable, some flaw in the prediction model, or some unknown variable not taken into account.
