“All anyone can see in a birthchart are tendencies that will become facts if he does not do something to alter them.”
This is a great quote by Isabel Hickey, who was the teacher of one of my astrology teachers. I believe our birth charts are like an orchestra, filled with many people playing instruments. What does our life sound like? What choices are we making with what we have? Will we play the same song over and over again. Will we let the trumpets take over and the flutes never get a chance? An astrologer is like an orchestra conductor. Allowing all the nuances of all the parts to be heard…. so that in the end, it is hopefully the best piece of music for us. But as Isabel Hickey states, without understanding our tendencies, the music could be hard on the ears.
