Over the next couple of days, Mars will conjoin my natal part of fortune in the seventh house of my chart. Uranus is already sitting right on the same degree.
So, what does that mean? I suppose that I’m going to win the lottery, or maybe I’ll finally be featured on the cover of “Fortune” magazine. Wait a minute! Mars is bad, isn’t it? Perhaps I’ll be fired from my job and lose my vast fortune. You know, anything can happen.
To be honest, I have never felt as if the part of fortune has anything to do with luck. I’ve lived long enough now that I feel as if I’ve given it an adequate chance to dazzle me with it’s power, and nothing has happened.
Yesterday, I stumbled across a Twitter thread where several astrologers were discussing and disparaging the idea the chart patterns are a valid tool in chart interpretation. I’ve seen the same people giving plenty of credit to astrological tools such as the Sabian symbols and the Arabian parts. What works for them doesn’t seem to work for me, and vice versa.
But that’s astrology for you! We all need to find our way, and ganging up on people who don’t share our exact beliefs probably isn’t the most productive use of our time.
Yesterday, I posted something about shitty astrologers who never predict anything but always manage to use hindsight to prove the accuracy of their “vision.” I felt like a jerk for publishing another post about shitty astrologers doing shitty work, but it needed to be said.
Today, something else needs to be said. We all possess a different tool box. Master your own tools before you start telling me what to do with mine.
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming . . .
