    Hmm...

    Well, these symbols are pretty specific...

    I mean, they're right there on your chart...

    Not too random...



    I haven't done combinatorial mathematics in a long time, so I just ran into a wall trying to do a back of the envelop calculation of all the possible permutations of astrological aspects there could possibly be, but, based on the wall I ran into, it would seem to run well into the billions.

    That's basically the position I take.

    From the previous thread PeaceBaby and Jag have made reference to:

    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 rather impressed.

    Still, there was a 1/12 chance she would guess it right, so I felt comfortable writing it off as chance.

    But then, 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, 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.

    After this, I opened my mind a bit more to astrology.

    Yeah, it doesn't surprise me in the least that INTJs would be interested in (while not necessarily "believing" in) astrology.

    Introverted Intuition is all about the esoteric, the obscure, the mysterious, the uncanny, and the coincidental synchronistic.

    There's that Te.

    Yeah, honestly, that's what ends up being so cool about it -- it really is highly calculative.

    The more charts you look at, the more you realize, "holy shit, people's charts are completely different from one another."

    I've looked at probably 15-20 different charts, and not one has been like another.

    Or the synchronistic.

    Right. That's the word I was searching for.

    Same store? The reason may be a business trick. Libras are produced around Christmas and New Year, so they may be among the most common zodiac signs.

    Ok. Do my chart. And I will see how "accurate" it is.
