Fatalism is one approach to astrology that is very traditional and fate-centric. Everything is understood as predestined, and the core belief is that we are not free to choose and take charge of our own lives. Astrologers who follow this approach are those who predict certain events and provide advice on how to live your life.

Humanistic Astrology Humanism is a more modern and choice-centric approach to astrology. The premise here is that a creative force lives within each of us and seeks expression. This world view therefore acknowledges us as co-creators of our own fate. It is not a toss between free will and destiny, but rather a combination of both. The birth chart is seen as a tool that can help us to know ourselves better, identify our strong and weak points, and ultimately to transform ourselves into self-harmonious beings. Humanistic astrologers say the purpose of the birth chart is to help us know ourselves better, enabling us to see as well as express our highest potential. We must work with the chart-identified problem areas until we are able to overcome them. This means that our problems as not to be accepted as fate, but rather as avenues through which we can strengthen ourselves to overcome them, and finally learn from them. There are humanistic astrologers who believe in karma and reincarnation. According to the philosophy of reincarnation, we all possess a soul or spiritual essence that remains alive even after our death, and incarnates in different physical forms in different lives. The purpose is to gives us the opportunity to learn different lessons by experience, and to slowly achieve perfection or wholeness. The philosophy of karma says that whatever we do is our own responsibility. What we do comes back to us. These things describe the ancient doctrine of karma. It is not necessary for us to believe in karma or reincarnation however. This same concept may be explainable through genetic predisposition or biological inheritance.
