Do you think astrology is bullshit

Pisces: John Wayne Gacy Jr. March 17, — May 10, was an American serial killer and rapist. Morris Solomon Jr. Petr Zelenka born February 27, is a Czech serial killer. Astrologers did not scientifically study the alignment of the stars in relation to humanity in anyway. They just awarded certain signs with certain traits and planets etc. Just because you fit your signs does not mean anything! Astrology is just a thing put in newspapers every month. People like to feel like they can know themselves because we are really complicated. Besides, how can the stars predict the future?

They are nothing more than great balls of gas and flame. This is why astrology is bullshit. Astrology is an old pseudo-science that holds it's value in it's explanation of people at least in this modern day. People want to understand other people, and themselves. We like to identify with various concepts and components of this world in order to outline our and their personalities.

It's why we wear certain clothes and attempt to define ourselves as certain types of people. When we romanticize who we are, all we are doing is forming an identity. Astrology is a good place to start for understanding personalities, in the sense that it will provide an understanding of the archetypes by which we loosely generalize people. But we do not need astrology for that, while it was good for awhile, we have personality archetypes and have had them for sever millennium all the way back to Hippocrates' four humors. All Hippocrates and astrology are today are anachronistic remnants, which only serve to conflict with better prevailing theories about human behavior and archetypes.

Furthermore, the premise that celestial alignment at all affects the psychological development of people, with no proposed mechanism aside from the non-physical, is absurd and unfounded. Environment, and perhaps genetic predisposition, would never be superseded by any celestial bodies. Unless something like the minute physical force of gravity exerted by those celestial bodies or maybe electromagnetic energy emanating from those bodies, was proved to have a substantial affect on a human-being's behavior, something that I doubt, then astrology should not be an accepted explanation of human behavior.

I try to describe astrology by few adjectives fake , pseudoscience , bullshit ,nonsense ,ridiculous, fraud ,superstition , absurd , pathetic , rubbish by using suitable adjective in google, you will get masses of very on point reflections about it. Like constellations were forming bilions of years just for you. They will even eventually go out as universe expands. If were people born on earth poles at same second one meter between pole "rod", they would allegedly have totally opposite houses. Some of my opposites signs after examination had much more of my sign planets affects just because being born in different year.

"It stops being an interest and becomes a personality trait: 'I'm an astrology girl.'"

After believing in it many years and confirming i met people for which i would swear-all in being that sign, i was completely wrong. The more people you know, the more you realize its complete bullshit. Two problems I have with astrology are: the tropical zodiac, which I think most astrologers use instead of the sidereal zodiac , and the Age of Aquarius.

In tropical astrology, the zodiac consists of 12 signs that last for a month. The zodiac signs and when the sun is in the signs has remained the same for over 2, years. About 2, years ago, the tropical zodiac more aligned with the stars. However, thanks to the precession of the equinox, the tropical zodiac is now out of touch with reality.

This will certainly confuse believers should they ever want to actually check the heavens to find planets. Also, we would think astrologers would agree on when the Age of Aquarius starts.

    I respect anyone's believe because it is the most respectful thing you can do, but ignorance over things that are clearly not true and when there is more than enough evidence that disproves it is not okay or excusable. People should do more research to discover the truth over things they truly do not know rather than passing it off with saying, "It is true because I say so or it corresponds enough to my liking.
