    I personally haven't ridiculed it.... I have said that I don't believe in it, because I do not see any evidence for it.

    Astrology seeks to identify outside of the person the origin of a person's action.

    It lessens the meaning of that action.

    It's okay if it is meant by and large just to be a template, a group of symbols that help you represent your own map of your own deeper self, but if the origin of your action is not to be found inside yourself, then something will go awry in your definition of important personal things, like love, hope, dreams, feeling, plans, choices... etc and so on.

    And it's them that ridicule. I just hope we never see a blue tit drinking tea. You wanna talk about your white horse of the apocalypse? Well behold, the blue tits are already in the milk.

    Was there, wasn't there - how would I know? I'm just reporting my subjective experience. Perhaps if I scheduled a reunion we could all compare notes.

    I had the data, and looked back at it. I said it was not accurate. I did not say it corresponded to my life in a tangible way. I didn't try to make myself "fit" into it. I was objective.

    That's all. Why are you extrapolating more from it than that?

    It seems anything posted in thread that doesn't try to toss astrology on its ear is seen as being supportive. Get your own data, see what you find out yourself.

    I disagree. I don't say that I believe in astrology, but it definitely makes your actions more meaningful. When the stars divine your actions as meant to be, it gives significance to an otherwise meaningless and miniscule action.

    Oh, it'll certainly give you a lot of colourful symbolism and cosmos-scale mysticism, but if it means that you are not the one who makes your choices, then youse been robbed.

    The physical sciences have already excised a non-physical seat of consciousness and threatened us with the indignity of determinism, the least we can do is pretend to some semblance of responsibility.

    For Sarah Connor, she may be a social retard, but she did get out of Pescadero Mental Whatsit by herself. She'd know what to do if a blue tit invaded her mind.

It's fascinating to study for its own sake, whether it has any practical application or not.
    Here here, but if enough of the ikkly boys say so, everyone else is wrong and they are right.


    There were two boys of 20 somehting age in the cinema queue behind me yesterday - they were talking too loud for two blokes stood less than a foot away. If kept trying to move forwrd out their way, it didn't work. The funny thing was the started chatting about women and music, and had sai one girl has said their band was not very good, and they did the whole 20 something of being really partonising and saying the Cheril Cole is a McNuggests pop star plucked from Iceland (the frozen food store here).... very funny to hear such denial.

    .

    This from someone who know F all, because astrlogy doesn't give yo outcomes, you make those all by yourself.

    I personally wont read for people who are trying to get astrology to make thier decisions for them in any big sence.

    Maybe you need to know a bit more before you slag the subject off.

    It's amazing how up tight and controlling J types are isn't it....

    Tink, is that the famous ESTP sense of humour?

    The events in the heavens are mirrored by those on Earth. Right?

    And a "reading" is used to determine what influences a person is under right now. Right?

    And then?




    And then the horse clops fives times until the trainer's head stops bobbing, and statistically speaking, Jesus returns once every 2000 years, give or take.



    EDIT: Nah, fuck it, I don't care.

    Astrology requires that I not be the one who knows what's afoot in my life. The stars know, or the reader knows, not I, until I am told.

    Not a valuable way to live a life.
