Risk is a hallmark in the assessment of the future. How can actions and their consequences be assessed? Will it succeed, will it go wrong? Does one lose or win? Do events occur that you do not expect, interruptions, delays and inhibitions? It is human to ask these questions, but it is very complex to try to calculate the answers.
It is also a part of being human to risk something.
The more autonomous and independent one's own actions are, the more the question of risk becomes part of life. Our own protection is not anonymously delegated to social systems and insurance companies.
The question is not just the probability and the size of the risk, but to understand what you risk.
Here begins the perception of a dilemma. Every decision includes opportunities and risks. It is a mark of one's own consciousness when one considers more than the obvious facts.
Assessing risks and opportunities is one of the basic requirements of astrology. Prediction and foresight are simply attempts at determining existence and preserving the boundaries. Humans want to be something more, different, or alien -- and we possess the freedom to attempt to become more, different, or alien. But therein lies the tragedy: we may be free to attempt but we will never actually become anything but human.
In life one experiences this as luck or misfortune, as success or failure. It is always a question of fate when it is "only" about the assessment of tenants, employees, partners, or locations. But the choice of location of living or working is a fateful choice. In contrast, we must submit to the ineffable course of time because we cannot choose or change the time.
In practice, however, not every development can be clearly predicted. The determinable can be blurred. This is due to incomplete data and the result of the the complexity of the relationships.
For example, the assessment of a company can be very complex because different data about the founder, change of company forms, or mergers are available. Even just attempting to precisely determine the opening of a practice is difficult as it is necessary to distinguish between the effects of different points in time such as the legal permission, the actual start of the activity, and the opening. Which point of time is effective? This is what makes the assessment complicated.
Depending on the question, other sources are required in addition to the astrological evaluation. For example, seismic maps can significantly increase the accuracy and prognosis of earthquakes.
Risk in an astrological perspective means the question of failure, error, and unexpected developments. It's about starting and doing the venture. To have the courage to go my own way as part of destiny even if you are not sure..
It is already a risk to follow others' own thinking and thinking. This requires trust and courage, if this venture is contrary to established conventions, traditions and ideas.
