    I don't get why some people (Stu & Steve, in particular) care about this crap though. Like it means absolutely nothing.

    fairies and vampires are real!!! and so are guardian angels. I have a personal guardian angel that looks after me. In fact, God himself tasked one of his angels to guard me, specifically. I'm so lucky.

    Isn't Saturn blocking the moon or something? Signifying rebirth that only happens every 7 years but while saturn is in retro-grade....Venus is in something else.

    According the the Mayans, the world will end in December of this year. So yeah... believe that shit.

    oh and also, today would be a great day for you all to contact your siblinigs because according to the stars....and the planets.....and karma. Today will be a day of great undulating successes....

    so yeah i dunno what the fuck I just said, but u must believe that it's all true. KARMA bitch, KARMA.....

    I read it.. first critique: astrology is spiritual? Believing that time and space has an effect on your psyche (thats astrology) has nothing to do with believing in spirits or souls...that's spirituality..

    So that page you posted, showing its ignorance, is bullshit

    It isn't, if you know how to read a chart properly. Daily astrology is commercialized for money. Original natal, elective or horary astrology is pretty accurate 75% of the time. It is like anything that has been oversimplified overtime. There is a lot more to it, than just where someone's sun is.

    That can be said about any belief system (eg: religious, political, etc.) that does not have scientific facts to back it up.

    Humans, in general, will always fall into some sort of belief system...it is just a part of how the human brain functions. It is ok for people to believe in something that is not true until it gets to the point where it harms others. Astrology is generally harmless.

    This is one of those rare occasions when I find myself completely in agreement with you.

    Thank you! Astrology is nothing more than subjective validation, confirmation bias, and the Barnum Effect. All of which are much more interesting topics.

    Ive already covered that in my last comment. But there is a need for people to know themselves, and astrology is covering a void.


    *bigger yawn* these threads trying to debunk astrology over and over are getting so tiresome lol... when do they ever give up? They wont win

    Yes. I love Barnum and Bailey circus.
    However what many people dont take into account who exactly is doing the test and what exactly it says.

    Ive done tests when it fits me well, some gave new information, some that sounded good at first then like crap and a few that was completely way off.

    When personality tests are perfected to the level of astrology tests, then you would not have to worry about talking about this every 4 months.


    The Barnum test was the worst example ever to quote. The man gave an accurate description of a "normal functioning human being" and gave it to five people and gave his name to a theory...

    Sure, im gonna give, say, four people here on RJ a page saying "You have a head, two arms and two legs".. then they will all answer "yes" and I will say that "humans have a tendency to answer "yes" to statements that are true" and I willcall this the "greenhopper" effect

    i mean seriously? the barnum effect??? get a life...

    LMAO, that was a hilarious interjection..

    Im flaming the astrology-debunkers... they are flaming the astrology-followers... most of the threads are just male machismo and ego's filling themselves by claiming superiority over others based on birthdates

    You shouldn't take it so personal. A lot of us think astrology is complete bullshit, a lot of you don't. Currently there are many pro-astrology threads, I don't see the problem with one holding a free position of dissent.

    I don't fit my sagittarius sign at all, so I'm on the "it is bullshit" train too.
