Personality, I use astrology just for the sake of "Decoration", not just judge someone personality based on their sign.

So yeah, my first post is of my typical rage/frustration because of the zodiac sign characteristics.

Btw, this is my natal chart:
Sun: Pisces
Moon: Leo
Mercury: Pisces
Venus: Aries
Mars: Scorpio
Jupiter: Aries
Saturn: Aries
Uranus: Aquarius
Neptune: Aquaries
Pluto: Saggitarius
Lilith: Scorpio
Asc Node: Leo

(Asteroids & Chiron)
Chiron: Saggitarius
Ceres: Gemini
Pallas: Aries
Juno: Saggitarius
Vesta: Aries
Fortune: Aries
South Node: Aries

I used: Free Astrology Birth Chart Report

Now, my dominant planet, zodiac sign, element and "Mode"

Dominant planet: Neptune (11.7%), Second place Moon (11.4%), third place Saturn (11.4%)
Dominant Zodiac sign: Aries (15.4%), Second place Aquarius (14.9%), Third place Pisces (13.4%).
Dominant Element: Fire first place (34%), And Second place being Water (27.8%), rest is Air (19.6%) and Earth (18.5%).
Dominant "Mode": Fixed (40.8%), Second place Cardinal (31.9%), Third place Mutuable (27.4%).

Took the info from here:

To limit caffeine consumption

Well yes but it does have a different and frankly less satisfying taste to it. Also it fails to wake me up. It's kind of like replacing chocolate cake with a bran muffin. It might be healthier for you but seriously- chocolate cake.

I look at decaf as a great business model. You sell people the most addictive chemical on earth, and then also sell them a version without this chemical, just so people can try to quit and use their "non-addictive" product instead. Either way, the profit of the coffee bean is one like no other. ;)

That is quite true. Surprised the tobacco companies didn't buy up the coffee producers back in the heyday of smoking. Could've made a fortune off me and my buddies alone. Caffeine and nicotine were my drugs of choice for many years.

Yes that's good. You definitely don't want to go with my method of quitting. Twenty three years of smoking then a heart attack and CABG surgery (3) at 42 now 44. Stay focused. Stay strong. Stay clear. Other factors were involved but smoking was a big one.

And we hijacked this poor guys thread. lol Apologies Comrade Maxim.

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..

Astrology is a very cool thing if you look at it from a different angle. Some entrepreneurs make a lot of money on astrology, so for some it is a very profitable business.

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.
