Isn't astrology just disguised stereotyping of individuals into twelve groups?


  1. its just a pretend game. most societies have made pictures of the stars. and typically they have animal characteristics. and people apply those to people. but its like the eight ball.
    the calculation for when the sun is in those constellations is an incomplete science. Do you calculate the dates figuring that the sun revolves around the earth, like the old christian world believed. do you calculate the suns position from a person’s perspective standing on the earth. or do you draw a line from the center of the earth to the center of the sun.

  2. No… it’s all assumptions. I was born under the sign of Virgo but I am not any of the things that it is assumed Virgos will be. In fact, none of the people I know possess any of the characteristics of the sign they were born under.

  3. Only to those who think that astrology is only sun signs.
    A sun sign is the sign that the sun is in when you are born. A rising sign is the sign on the horizon when you were born. A moon sign is the sign that the moon was in when you were born. Each planet was in a specific sign. The sun, moon, and each planet was also in various houses when you were born. And each of these heavenly bodies have a relationship with the other heavenly bodies.
    This is all of the information that a simple natal chart takes into consideration. The sign that the sun is in is only one part of the equation.
    Besides that, natal charts only depict a person’s potential. Environment and personal effort are important considerations too.
    I’m not trying to say that astrology is or isn’t useful. I am simply trying to explain that what most people think of as astrology is only a very small portion of what it entails.
