    I can't vote on the poll, I feel too restricted by the options.

    I'd mostly have to agree with Peguy.

    Although I can relate with many things said about my astrological sign, it's more like fun reading material than something I consider to be an absolute.
    It's the same with MBTI. I can now add it to saying "Oh, sometimes I'm so Taurus+INFJ"

    I read the little stubs at the back of the papers. If they're funny, I'll laugh, if they're not, meh. I tend to forget them on the spot. I certainly don't consider living by them.

    That is sooo far from real astrology. That is probably why you find it funny. I never read those things.

    I like astrology, it's another fine example of human uncertainty that was designed through the essence of boredom... And in some way I do believe that other planets and stars do have a constant, subtle effect on our psychology, via the various frequencies emitted by them at any given time, regardless of their location in the universe, and for the objects with the most influence, that varies on how close they are to us... It's all relative!

    As for pretending that animal depictions in the sky are the things responsible for "true love, and/or prosperity" based on their alignments... They're just stars!
    ... They say that knowledge is free, and to truly acquire wisdom always comes with a price... Well then,... That will be $10, please!

    It doesn't stop me from wondering what everyone's sign is, though, and buying into some of the finer points like ascendants, venuses and moons and things. On some level it's a study that almost every culture has pursued at some point, so wether or not it's actually valid (measurable) it's so ancient (intrinsically human?) that it might have some truth... (and I know I love my own chart -- go Sagittarius rising/Gemini moon/Pisces sun! = trinity of Mutable signs, woo!)

    I have a friend who's a lot more into it than I am, and she can tell you of whole dimensions of information that trained astrologers are supposed to keep in mind while drawing charts and things. Nodes and retrogrades and aspects and well my mind just kinda goes *spuh* at that point.

    Buddhists use it too!
    Oh my goodness! You sound like you have a lot of passion going on in your chart. What a free spirit with that Gem/Moon and Sag/rising. No one should ever try to put chains on you, that's for sure. But I'm sure Pisces makes sure you get your fair share of LOVE.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Yes, I know, it's purely for the lolz. But reading comprehensive texts from people who actually know a great deal about astrology is interesting.

    I don't really, but then again I couldn't be anything else but Sagittarius, none of the other descriptions come close. And I get the horoscopes from Free Will Astrology sent to my mailbox every week because Will Brezsny is awesome, whether you buy into astrology or not.

    Don't question why she needs to be so free
    She'll tell you it's the only way to be
    She just can't be chained to a
    Life where nothing's gained
    and nothing's lost
    at such a cost

    Well then, what is your view of astrology in comparison to the MBTI?
    Which do you feel is more accurate and have more validity?

    Personality of course is not written in the stars. Nevertheless, each planet represents an archetype personality.

    More of a hopeful agnostic, on the basis
    that X-thousand years of personality
    observation is likely to capture something
    of the true essence. I think the overall
    aims of the personality might relate to
    astrological definition, while MBTI function
    defines the approach to more discrete
    objectives, or astrology might define the
    carrier wave and MBTI the components?

    Anyway, I'm Cancer sun, Sagittarian moon
    and Capricorn rising.
