    There's no use for it. It is not scientifically based and overall doesn't make much sense. I still struggle to understand why people put so much weight on astrology.

    I think for one you cannot take astrology for the tumblr posts it is based on.

    I am a Pisces with Virgo and Sagittarius. When you put it all together it is a more productive system. Not perfect, but more productive.

    Because they like the taste but don't need/want the caffeine high.

    But it tastes like coffee squeezed out of a dirty dishrag. And it doesn't give you a caffeine rush.

    Before I derail this thread again I'm a Virgo/Libra rising/Pisces moon and astrology is fun but I don't follow horoscopes with any fervor.

    Astrology is a way of avoiding astronomy.

    Astronomy requires critical thinking while astrology entrances us.

    So who needs to be entranced? And the answer is those who entrance others, for the best way to entrance another, is to entrance oneself first, and astrology does the job.

    And where do we find astrology? We find it at the back of almost all women's magazines. And most women need to entrance a man, and the best way to do this is to entrance ourself first. I mean if someone asks your star sign in a bar, you know they are trying to pick you up.

    And if one's life chances depend on being able to entrance a man, astrology will help us, while astronomy won't turn anyone on.

    Astrology is the women's friend, while astronomy is for geeks.

    Some people use astrology and the magic of numbers in order to somehow find an explanation for what is happening to them. Some people find it reassuring..

    Hmm... Yes, there are some people like that, but I think it's terrible to make money that way, but I think you know that. I don't have much interest in astrology, as I like numerology much better. It helps me deal with a bit of stress that comes from not knowing the future. Numerology helps me in the way that based on my lucky numbers, I can guess what's in store for me throughout the day. Most of the time, I use https://www.zodiacsigns-horoscope.com/angel-numbers/angel-number-111-meaning/ to understand the meaning behind the number that has appeared in my mind.

    Print out your astrological predictions and your tarot for that matter (best to use soft paper, 2 ply if you can find it) and use them as toilet paper. Now they have purpose and have become useful.
