i think if you beleive in it without realising you will find a way to make it relevent. it's not a logical or ilogical, it just is! you wake up read your stars, it say youll meet someone new, so im guessing those who beleive it are more open to the suggestion were as the would ignor someone on the train this time they smile, well there you go next thing your chating, you meet someone new, it's in the stars!!!

astrology is kinda weird for me. i like to read my horoscope at the end of the day and see how close it is. sometimes its dead on and sometimes its waaaay off the mark.

so i dunno, i guess if it helps you get through the day it cant be that bad, no?

I can not believe you have over 7k posts myself. They also sound the same, most of the time.

Really now, how many people know the date, much less the time, of their conception? Difficult to have first hand knowledge of it since "you" aren't there until its over. And since the time from conception until baby decides to exit mama is variable, the reading will be only an approximation.

Of course since free will is true and determinism is false the future cannot be known, so the whole thing is just a rough extrapolation of the past.

Astrology is bollox.
Astrologer is a synonym for wanker.
So next time someone tells you they are an astrologist, you can say
"I know, who isn't?"

Gravity causes every particle in the universe to affect every other particle in the universe, no matter how minimally. I think the only thing we actually seem to know about "astrology" is that there's a day and a night, four seasons, a tide, and that people's moods can be psychosomatically affected. The sun has 99% of the mass of our solar system, jupiter effectively has the rest. The moon affects us because of it's proximity but the effects of the other planets' gravity and/or magnetic fields altering our moods is imaginary/negligable. Astrology's harmless except for the annoyance factor of being pre-judged based on what month you were born in.

While I do believe people may generally relate to each other based on similar conditions at birth (i.e. planets aligned, current events the same, being born in a hospital, etc.) you cannot predict one's future, nor can you determine the many aspects of his/her characteristics simply based on the date he/she was born.

Why, you ask: Because there are countless other variables that influence one's character as well as future endeavors. The planets aren't the only things effecting my behavior, although I could be wrong.... The relationship we have with the rest of the universe may be more important than we think. Although, I could be wrong...
