    For those who are curious about astrology, the book Cosmos and Psyche by Richard Tarnas is a phenomenal, intellectually rigorous, challenging, mind-expanding read.

    He graduated from Harvard cum laude in Philosophy and I believe got his PhD in Philosophy as well.

    Was the director of research at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA, where he became very close friends with Huston Smith, Joseph Campbell, and the many other modern thinkers who frequent there.

    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.
    One astronomer not believing in astrology doesn't mean no astronomer believes in astrology.

    Pretty... simple... logic... there.

    Zarathustra: First girl commented with second girl. Yes she was no longer working at the store, but there are a million ways that could have happened.

    Regardless, that's all very nice but what I want to know is how astrology explains the correlation between character traits and the movement of the planets. Is astrology a science?

    Women awe and flatter to gain commission, and the men fall for it all the time, even the "skeptical" INTJs.

    Ummm, first girl commented to second girl about a guy who's been in the store one time, and when the guy came back three months later, the second girl just happened to know it was him?

    Really?

    That's the leg you're trying to stand on?

    Interesting... that really says a lot about your openness to new possibilities/ideas...

    As for the second part of your comment, I'm so glad you asked:

    I remember Esalen where an ambulance would pull up once a week, every week, and everyone would troop down to have their shots for sexually transmitted diseases.

    Esalen is not an accredited University and so anyone who would call themselves, "Director of Research at Esalen Institute, Big Sur, CA", is simply pretentious.

    Quite like astrology itself.
