    Modern astrology has the astronomy factually wrong, just as in seventy years no double blind test has been done on MBTI.

    You share the same characteristic: you say completely false statements while thinking you're absolutely right.

    I used to be a major skeptic about astrology. I thought it was mere delusional child's play. Of course, when I felt this way, I really didn't know much about astrology or how it supposedly works.

    I continued with this skepticism until one day just a little over a year ago when something crazy happened to me.

    I was returning a pair of jeans that I'd bought at a store three months before.

    When I'd originally bought the jeans, I was helped by a tall, very attractive, sandy blond Lebanese girl who'd grown up in Switzerland. I was trying on some jeans in the dressing room, and she and I were talking, when all of a sudden she says to me, "You're a Libra."

    I'm standing there in the dressing room, putting on a pair of jeans, and just freeze.

    I was born October 17th.

    I stopped for a moment, thinking to myself, and finally said, "How did you know that?"

    She said, Libras are always very picky in their aesthetic tastes...

    I paused again.

    "Seriously? You really just guessed I was a Libra based on that?"

    She said, "I've studied a lot of astrology. And I see different people all day long. I've gotten pretty good at typing them."

    Needless to say, I was blown away.

    So, anyway, fast forward three months to the present time (March 2009):

    I'm returning the same pair of jeans to the same store.

    Unfortunately, the same attendant was not working at the time, but another attractive foreign female attendant (Israeli, this one) came up to me and asked me what I was looking for. I told her I was looking to return the jeans, and potentially buy something else.

    She and I start chatting, she brings me some shirts and jeans, and right as I'm putting on another pair of jeans, she stops and says to me, "You're a Libra."

    No fucking joke.

    For some reason, two different girls, same store, both just happen to tell an astrology skeptic that he's a Libra, when he's changing in the exact same dressing room.

    If you take this as mere random chance: that's a 1/144 chance that they both get it right.

    I've never had anyone else my entire life even venture a guess as to what my sun sign is.

    But for some reason, the only two times I ever come into the same store, these two girls happen to ask, and they just happen to be right.

    It was odd.

    Needless to say, I opened up a bit more to astrology after this experience.

    Oh, and for the doubters:

    I am an extremely observant and careful person, and on both of these occasions my wallet was inside the front right pocket of my jeans (as it always is), which were inside the dressing room, which neither of these girls ever entered a single time.

    It' s a chart showing the positions of all the planetary bodies (moon, sun, planets, asteroids, and more) at the exact time of your birth, relative to your position on Earth.

    I get into and out of Astrology.

    My birth chart that was read to me by an Ayervedic (sp?) astrologer made me cry, it was so accurate.

    soooo, yeah.

    An astronomer is only a phone call away.

    If you wish, you can pick up the phone and ring an Observatory and ask to speak to an astronomer.

    And then you can ask them the truth value of astrology.

    My guess is that the answer will be zero.

    I suggest you read a book called Innumeracy by John Allen Paulos.

    Statistically crazy things are not always so crazy.
