I think Astrology is Bullsh*t. Here’s why I’m Wrong.

*Eleditor’s note: Astrology isn’t a religion. We’re not sure it’s a science, either. It’s magic, maybe. But, as with feng shui, say, things affect things. So as long as we don’t go blaming our problems on the stars, as long as we assume responsibility for our own actions…well, hell, a little auspicious coincidence and applicable wisdom can’t hurt. And so, with that grain of salt…enjoy!

Before you comment on whether or not you believe in astrology you should actually try to study it a little more. It is not that the stars or planets or anything control you. They are mere markers for anything we have done in the past. It is intimately wrapped up in the whole notion of karma and taking responsiblity for you own actions and the life you have created, and yes, even Buddhists have their own form of astrology which you don't seem to be aware of from your comments ( though appear to identify with this religion?). So many miconceptions around this topic yet how central it was to all the ancient ways of life. And as far as it being a "science", it is indeed - but a science of another paradigm based on other aspects such as panchamabhuta ( in the vedic realm at least). All science is not merely western science. That is a severly limiting vantage point.
