I have been an Astrologer for many years and recently someone asked me about Free Will in one's astrology chart,, Here is how I see it
Important to understanding how Astrology works in our lives is to see where our own Free Will fits into the scheme of things.
All astrological influences resonate on a lower to higher frequency scale. The same transit or aspect will impact two people differently. While there are multiple reasons why this occurs, a primary one is at what level an individual is responding to these energies and aspects and configurations within our own astrological chart. I find that understanding of both the lower AND higher expressions of an astrological event, gives on a clearer picture. It is then up to person to decide how you will respond, and this is an act of Free Will.
An example is one person may react to a strong Mars influence with impatience and frustration while another may react from a higher expression of the Mars energy influencing them with drive, focus and enthusiasm. While we cannot change the fact that there is a strong Mars influence occurring, no more than we can keep it from raining, we can, by consciously directing our Free Will, decide how we will react to it. In essence, how we decide to respond to the events and energies present around and in us creates the foundations for our life.
To be able to know the higher expressions available to you and then to make choices based on that knowledge, is the true positive use of astrological understanding and of Free Will. Flowing with the energies that are in and around helps with the growth of ourselves and all we come in contact with. Also, the more we can align with the energies present the more grounded, centered and calm you can become.

"we can, by consciously directing our Free Will, decide how we will react to it"
Yes, and this is why I am trying to learn astrology. I want to better understand what is happening and how I can manage through it during the more testing times.
Free Will By Physics

Here's an easier way to understand free will. imagine three particles. Now imagine one of them larger then the other two. However the other two interact with each and the third they will always be moving towards the larger one. How they interact is always discretionary, but the result is the same.
If that doesn't make sense go left and define it for you self. I am left handed by the way so if you want to go right that works too.

Thank you for sharing this interesting approach, Charlie (I allow myself to call you that way as I just discovered what your name is).
You managed to put into words what some of us feel in one way or another and you've done it in a very clear and conscious way.
Thanks again and have a great weekend : )
Had All The Free Will Before Making The Leap
August 10, 2012, 4:30 am
my idea of free will is that we choose our date of birth (thus our zodiac influences) During life, we have the option to accept the circumsatances we created for ourselves and work with them, or deny them altogether and depend on "blind faith" In addition, our name is also chosen while existing on a higher level, and indicates our inborn abilities, desires, and initial impression upon others, not to mention the names we go by during each trip to "earth school"
We choose who to run into, and who would serve no purpose, or serve as a distraction, from our initial goal. the planning process is too intricate to detail in such a forum, and one must account for miracles, and rash/irrational decisions made by those (who may be completely oblivious) we include in our chart, and those who include us in their chart (sometimes we may feel off track, but as everything, its all for the greater good)
what i'm getting at is that our free will is best exercised when we live from a point of compassion, rather than guilt/regret, go with the flow, and remain optimistic as possible no matter where life takes us (or where we choose to venture, on a subconscious level, of course)
My only true Free will is my choice to accept or to reject the present........regardless, it's a creation of my/our individual/collective minds.11:11
Thank You, Charlie. It Makes

Thank you, Charlie. It makes sense to me. I have two friends (Lisa A & Amelia H)both born on the same day, 08/05/1970 and they are like night and day! I was thinking the upbringing also had something to do with it. I could also be they were born at different times so ascending different.
It's odd but I have quite a few people born on the same day that I know, My sister and my friend Melanie (01/04) Lisa P and Charlie P her brother same day different year 09/30--same birthdays...kinda weird. I know Melanie and my sister have the same Capricorn pig-headedness, but Lisa and her brother, not similar at all. So it makes sense that the way people react to things is what makes them who they are. :)

Free Will And The Golden Yod
October 19, 2011, 7:19 pm
I just had to add to this topic. I currently had a golden yod activiated just in the past couple I will never disagree that we are completely free agents, however, I have to say that I am being challenged to such a degree that my little personal will feels it has no freedom at all. What seems to be occuring here is a contract my higher self has made and only giving little clues and bits of phenonmena to keep my lower self from buying a one way ticket into a psychiatric hospital. My understanding of free will is the reactions one utilizes, and of course this is associated with the realization of higher mind. Because the ego can not fully recognize what modes of operation are no longer serving the intended expression, I would have to say that free will is trusting there is an opportunity without attaching to the outcome. Not so easily embraced by the lower self who clings to what it knows, lately my fundamental beliefs about what should or should not be happening is being completely reworked as I continually look for proof that I really do have some control. So, The GOLDEN YOD. Has anyone been experiencing this? A lack of control where free will is just some great idea yet to be invented? Any YOD is supposedly a force that guides one into a seemingly oblivion in conciousness?

that this is where your level of evolvement on Earth comes into play? Free will would be also to just know something that you need to do and not even be aware of the reason......a type of clear knowing...this is what I have realized ....I have been doing most of my life...being led by my higher self or spiritual guidance and excepting what is for what it is.
