What's stupid though? The fact that it was asked, or the fact that there's 27 pages of response to it?

Some people base their life choices on astrology, others couldn't care less...... therefore, as life goes in most instances, it really depends on the person.

Piscean and Cancers should not, and often do not. That press about Scorpios being deviant, sexually obsessed,
manipulative and controlling, is way too generalised and plainly unfair. If that is what you are talking about.
They can make wonderful healers, great detectives and be powerful in positive ways and often quite magnetic. We are all much more than just our sun sign. I would never dismiss anyone on just their sun sign alone.

You might date a Leo if your Venus was there, as is often the case with Virgo. We need not to judge all sun signs by those that we may have encountered and not been compatible with. So many other factors to consider.

karma, your 7th house is ruled by Venus (Taurus) and in Aquarius, no surprise that you would want a committed relationship with an Aquarian as well as it being your Sun sign. As you say so many elements to consider and it is very complex.

"Evolved" is the key word. A positive Scorpio is a great healer, can be a force for enormous transformation and
they can be very fixed and loyal. However that is only part of the picture with so many other planets to consider in any given chart.

But what happens when a goat Gemeni wants to date an ox Aries? How's that work when they're both the best match and the worst match at the same time?

I'm one of the people that could care less about astrology. I might read it for fun. But I don't make important life decisions based on it.

Why is it that it's most believers in astrology are women? Is it because guys are more "show me the facts" oriented? Or is it because astrology seems exotic, like female romance novels?

On what do you base that assumption? Opposites attract? Not necessarily so, in fact hardly ever so.

"Why is it that it's most believers in astrology are women?"

I've noticed that too.

That would mean, with currently over 7 billion people on the planet, almost 600 million people would share the exact same traits because they were born in the same 30 day window. Makes no sense at all.

It's a form of religious/magical thinking, as a way to make sense of personalities and interactions. And I think women are more interested in relationships/interactions in general, and could try to find some sort of explanation this way.

Today of course we know that every single person is unique in terms of their individual DNA and personal life experiences.

There is no connection between those 600 million, other than they all were born within 30 some odd days of one another.

Wrong. People born 30 days apart, even if they are the same sun sign, have VASTLY different birth charts. Someone who truly knows astrology would be aware of this. When calculating someone's birth chart, the date. EXACT TIME (down to the minute) and location are very important. When I meet a person and I only know their DOB but no time, it is very hard to get an accurate picture of them. People born on the same day, but at different times of the day and/or different locations, even just minutes apart, can have different character traits. That explains why some twins have different personalities even though they are born on the same day. In a few minutes, the degrees of a person's moon and house cusps can have moved, putting all the other planets in different house locations, thus making the person different from the one born at a different time on the same day. Those who have no idea what I'm talking about clearly are not at all familiar with real astrology. Real astrology has nothing to do with sun sign horoscopes at all.

That's why some people call it "chick crack". Things like astrology, numerology, runes and tarot cards seem to appeal to women more than men.


It's a form of religious/magical thinking, as a way to make sense of personalities and interactions. And I think women are more interested in relationships/interactions in general, and could try to find some sort of explanation this way.


Of course it's hogwash. I don't know anyone that would only date certain signs. They make absolutely no difference. Twins can be completely different and there isn't any evidence that supports astrology. It just relies on confirmation bias like going to a "psychic" or a "medium". People focus on the stuff that fits and ignore the rest of it that doesn't fit them.

I got a kick out of the James Randi video where he gives everyone the same horoscope and they think it's accurate.

Amazing the kind of crap folks choose to clutter their minds. Sure is a a "bunch of junk". Wonder what percentage of folks who "believe" in astrology also "believe" in some religion and every other crazy thing out there?

I think most go the whole nine yards: ghosts, spirits, seances, tea leaves, religion ... Sad. Just don't understand how these folks navigate their ways through life with all this garbage in their heads.

^^^Oh, hell, no. It's what star sign you're born under. Your life is predetermined.

I guess we're dumb because we're from the same state.

In 2006, Pluto (the 'ruling' planet of Scorpio, in terms of astrology) lost its designation as a planet. (It is not the largest object in its orbit and was reclassified as a 'dwarf planet.') What was the impact of this on horoscopes and astrological charts?

I don't really believe in astrology...I mean I don't take it seriously.
But it is interesting sometimes to read things that others are assuming
about you because of star alignment and realizing that it's true.

I wouldn't plan my life around astrology or numbers...I think it's
entertainment.

I don't take a ouija board seriously either, but I'm pretty sure it's not
me moving the planchette.

How is believing in astrology or numbers or the stars any different
in believing in some invisible deity?

PS I'm a wicked Leo

Yes, as with all those life experiences in what forges one’s life in so many ways....with a few quirks through in... for good measure.
I wasn’t born in Roseto, PA. lol ....but grew up with that similar family, neighborhood, community atmosphere in Chicago.
As those bonds of love, respect, joy, success, etc, etc,makes one heart beat strong.
As for astrology I find it as fun thing if anything...but not what drives my mind or heart.....

As for me & many others, ‘’ it takes the village in rising’’ ... in its responsible of love, with guidance, care etc, for those there that live there. Thinking back... I would have never have traded it for the world..
Having experienced & found out all that ‘’stuff'' in those ‘’Growing Years,'’.. so true now ....and to seek, & still learn experiences of life.....without drinking the‘’kool-aid’’ mind you...

Ok.... I’ll get off the soap box...carry on.

No difference at all. That's why my profile reads: " Sorry, but I can't date someone with beliefs in the supernatural ."

Too bad the religious folks who write don't get that religion is belief in the supernatural. They don't get that "non-religious" on my profile either. I have to spell it out using "atheism/atheist" in my profile. Sometimes they still don't get it (or don't bother to read it).

People born on the same day, but at different times of the day and/or different locations, even just minutes apart, can have different character traits....When calculating someone's birth chart, the date. EXACT TIME (down to the minute) and location are very important.


So if a baby is born in the west wing of a hospital, are they going to have different character traits than someone born in the east wing? Do astrologers require GPS coordinates to the exact spot where a person was born to chart someone? I don't remember the exact time to the minute I was born, and neither does my mother. Would I have to get hospital records to prove when I was born to satisfy someone who is into astrology? It would be hard to locate the exact spot where I was born, since the hospital I was born in was torn down since then.

If I was contacting someone who mentioned they were into astrology, there is no way I'm going to give details about my birth date to an internet stranger. Even after a first meet, I'm not giving any details. How would I know if it's someone who wants the information for identity theft, and is using the disguise of being an astrologer? If someone won't go on a date until they have enough information to do a chart on me to see if we're a good match and what my personality is like, my chart would say we're not a match and that's the end of that.

I was wondering about the same thing that a couple of other posters wondered: If there is a belief in the super-natural that can't be proven right or wrong, are most astrologers also religious?
