Amazing! How did he manage to get three sets of five people, in which all of them were born at the exact same moment? He's a witch, I tell you!

To be fair, he didn't point us to any of his product. You've saved him the trouble! :)

Wonderfeel wrote:@Fallible, @Scarlett: Oh jeepers, that feels a bit harsh. I wanted to hear some ideas from this community. So I signed up, found the section for new members to introduce themselves and then posted...

This feels like derisiveness, the sort of thing that can give skeptics a bad name. If there's something you have issue with, play the ball (not the player!)

Aye, a sceptic is forced by the lack evidence -- remembering that the plural of data is not 'anecdote' -- to deride claims for Astrology as an explanatory mechanism for, well, anything. That's not to belittle the conclusions of any personal project of self-reflection you've undertaken - your personal experience is clearlly incorrigible, and what your experiences mean to you and the way you approach life is your concern alone. Nonetheless, the things you feel have been revealed to you via Astrology are not tied to, governed by, or dependent on, the position of or relationaship between astronomical bodies, either near or far.

However, from the combination of your username and some numeronicon of my own devising I can confidently tell you that even though you have an innate need for the approval of othrs you sometimes feel uncomfortable with the attention that this inevitably brings; that you have a great untapped potential which, if exploited, could make a real difference to your own life and the lives of others; that while you like to project an outward air of controlled detatchment inwardly your are often racked with insecurities, doubts and misgivings; that you positively embrace change and become frustrated by the limitations of stolid and unthinking conformity; that you are an independent thinker who does not accept assertions which are not backed up with satisfactory evidences, no matter how earnestly they are communicated; that even though your are quite comfortable with who and what you are you still have a tendency to be hard on yourself and hold yourself to standards you would not require of othrs, and; that all-in-all you have real and serious doubts about whether you have just bought someone else's 'answer' to your own personal 'questions' about yourself.

The good news is that you don't owe me £60 for the readng, nore will I be referring you to a reflexologist friend so your chakrahs can be realined.

Wonderfeel wrote:

@monkeyboy probably 90%+ of your chart would be the same as his. So you would be predicted by astrology to have very similar attributes, tendencies, personality traits. It doesn't control how you will live your life, to me it's just synchronicty between you popping into the world and what the heavens were saying at that time. Ascendant sign (how you first appear to unfamiliar people) would definitely be different, and the angles between of the moon would have shifted to other planets. My best mate at high school was like that with me too, maybe we were similar and clicked.


So basically, no discernible difference between two people born within hrs of each other a short distance apart and say, any two people on the planet. Similar character traits perhaps but nothing to suggest we'd make similar life choices. Nothing really predictive about it then?

What is the point of astrology if its so vague? People might be similar to the other 12th of the planet's population born under the same sign in some ways but not in all ways because lumps of rock move in relation to where we see stars in the night sky?
The Bible is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies.
