Some people accuse astrology of being fatalistic, it is written in the stars and then destiny will unfold as it is written. Well maybe, but the question of the astrologer’s art, is what is written and how do we interpret what is written and on what level does the native operate? Because what is written must be expressed through the vehicle of the individual in question, which of course may be intimated through the horoscope, but how the person choses to use these energies cannot be predicted. The astrologer should always allow for serendipity, because of course, we do not operate in a vacuum, other people enter our drama and have their effects.

This offers an opportunity to revolutionise our relationship with nature, through kindly technology and collective action. George Eliot shows us how this radical square expressed itself in her life.
