    But isn't this the real reason people love that stuff? No one really cares whether or not it can be proven or not, they just want to learn something about themselves that they didn't think they were aware of. Whether it's grounded in reality only depends on how grounded the customer is. The more imaginative the customer, the more insightful the reading to them, and humans are quite an imaginative bunch, thankfully.

    I give people the truth and they run.

    people don't want the truth silly!

    they wish to be soothed with sweet, sweet lies... and sometimes they want us to talk dirty to them

    Is that supposed to be a threat? My point is that most of the objections to astrology have absolutely nothing to do with having faith. What do the posters in question have faith in, exactly? That astrology is not valid? Like how we have "faith" in the non-existence of fairies?

    Would you believe me if I told you that you're the first person to make a grill joke? Good; you're not
