Here is a nice question I was recently asked:
I know we can change our destiny, in some way, with our actions or decisions. But that, what’s the point of having our astrological chart read? Whatever it says could be changed anyway!
It’s not that we “change our destiny” in the present. This is almost impossible. What we can change is what we do with our present destiny. And doing so changes our future destiny.
We look for knowledge – be it from astrology or elsewhere – to help us figure out the most productive way to deal with our current destiny. The “most productive way” means the way that will create the best future destiny.
