    Of course. I think it's an amazing and beautiful subject. Anything dealing with transcendence or spirituality is my center.
    I don't think it can be something whether you believe in it or not, but whether you follow it or not. It's an art. It's beautiful.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    What is the difference between following and believing? Following is just interest?

    When I think of believing I think of deciding whether or not it's real to me. When I think of following, I think of agreeing with the teachings of. I guess it's reasonable not to believe in it, now that I think of it, but I do, and I certainly do follow it.

    I also get frustrated with hard-core Christians who say it's a bunch of gibberish. I don't think they have, or anybody, has the liberty to judge it either way without knowledge of it.

    So would you agree that following is more of an appreciation of a system? Not an appreciation for it's truth per se but more of an appreciation for the intricacies and nuances that are held within it?

    My whimsical side is drawn to astrology, and I do like it as a set of personality archetypes. That's as far as it goes, though. I've known plenty of people born under the same sign, and I don't see any great similarities between them. There's also something about the idea of our fates being written in the stars that rings false with me. Part of it is that I don't believe in fate in the first place; fate is just the feeling we get when we look back and everything seems to have fallen into place or when we look to the future with expectation but no guarantee.

    Yes. I will have to agree with you, as there really isn't any concrete proof that says 'Astrology is Fact'. But that's obvious. But I do think you are right..and that it's not so much that followers believe in it to be right, but people like what it represents, and that they like the idea of it.

    Cool, I find myself appreciating a lot of things in that manner, the ideas created by a system rather than the truth behind. Though as an addendum I do like to distinguish between what is truthful and that which is not.

    I used to believe in it, but not anymore. I definately don't have the personality of an avergage Libra. I'm more of a Scorpio or a Leo. Used to think I had the personality of a Libra, but I got to know myself better now.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.
