Ask Charla: Astrology & Your Free Will

Posted on May 04, 2017

You′re still with me for the fourth edition of ‘Ask Charla′. I first started learning my art in the 1970s, where I spent hours laboring with a slide rule and an ephemeris to cast and interpret birth charts. I hope to pass some of my knowledge along to you! I answer one question from one fo our fans once a week and here is this week′s fascinating inquiry:

“Does astrology take away from the autonomy of the individual?”

Astrology & Free Will — A Contradiction?

This question is very interesting, and one we actually get fairly frequently. I′m an astrologer, but I also firmly believe in the concept of free will. I don′t see this as a contradiction, using astrology and believing in free will? There are some things that astrology can do, and some that it can′t.


Astrology can:

  • Help you to understand your personality
  • Guide you into the correct timing for important decisions
  • Reveal patterns of behavior that might need to be overcome
  • Assist you in finding your innate talents
  • Lead you to discovering your heart′s desire
  • Aid you in exploring the potential of other people
  • Walk you through important discoveries about your life
  • Help you to learn how to help yourself

Astrology can′t:

  • Tell you who to marry
  • Force you to do something you don′t want to do
  • Predict how many kids you′ll have
  • Reveal the date you′re going to die
  • Give you the winning lottery numbers
  • Fix all your money problems
  • Find your true love
  • Make you instantly happy

Hi! I’m Charla Stone and I learned astrology and mysticism way back in the 1970s. I've spent the last four decades using the stars, tarot, runes, crystals, totems, and more to bring light and guidance to others. I’m just an old hippie at heart who has traveled the world to learn of its cultures. I’ve been published online and in print—which still rather surprises me, as this isn’t something I do, it’s just who I am! When I’m not writing or doing readings, I’m spending time in my garden or the art studio, or with my beloved dogs. Read More by Charla Stone
