To quote from the first issue of The Tradition journal:
The purpose of this regular feature is to highlight and examine some of the fallacious arguments used to support certain astrological practices. This is done not to criticise, but to demonstrate that they are modern constructs having little to do with the Western Tradition. What has become known as Modern astrology dominates the field, as does the promotion of its methods which has led to a great deal of confusion, not to mention heated argument, about the Western Predictive Tradition. With the growing popularity of the Tradition, there has been an amount of mixing of the two systems which has led to a ‘blurring’ of the boundaries. It is hoped that this series of articles will help to correct these misunderstandings and clearly define and distinguish one from the other system.
In the first issue we dealt with the houses and in the second the accusation that Traditional astrology is fatalistic or, deterministic. We would very much like to hear your opinions about this regular column; perhaps there is a subject that you would like to see addressed, if so please let us know in this web log. Should there be a number of suggestions, we will take a vote to choose the topic for the next issue. So, please let’s hear your views.
