The birth map does not plot the fate of the individual in a predestined way. Rather, it symbolizes the basic lines of his character’s potential development. It takes a minimum of thought to realize that a man will act and shape his life according to his needs, fears, and abilities, and that these needs, fears, and abilities stem from his inherent disposition. In this sense character is fate, and if we are ignorant of our own natures - as most of us are who have never explored the unconscious - then the stars cannot be blamed for the fact that we run headlong and blind along the course we ourselves have chosen. The more shallow interpretation of fate and free will - fate is what I am ‘destined’ to do, while free will is what I 'choose’ to do myself - makes it impossible to see the subtle paradox that these two opposites are one and the same
