Do The Stars Rule Us or Guide Us?

This morning my partner mentioned to me that something didn't feel quite right about the daily vibes. He couldn't put his finger on it, and he asked me to check his astrology chart to see what might be making him feel a touch anxious. So I did.
And I discovered some good aspects for him. He's playing in a golf tournament tomorrow, and with the transiting conjunction of Mercury and Venus in his sign Aquarius happening on this day, I can't think of a better day to be social and communicate with others. He's teamed up with his best golfing buddy who is an excellent golfer who will keep him competitive. With the Mercury-Venus conjunction, he might be having too much fun to seriously compete, so it's good that he has a competitive partner.
The reason for this story and my belief: the stars don't rule us. Our charts don't rule us. Our feelings don't rule us...if we're wise. Astrology can only point the way or give us some guidance. We're in charge of our lives.
