I believe in astrology. I have NO IDEA why, as a system, it works: but it does; and for me that system is both logically comprehensible and eminently useful. Now I don’t for a moment imagine that whirling hunks of rock in the sky have an immediate effect upon affairs here on Earth, but I find them a reliable reflection of what’s happening around me. As above, so below: you betcha.
I have no time for theological debate or scientific refutation: in modern times, both religion and science attack astrology as superstitious, destructive, and manipulative bunkum, conveniently forgetting that once-upon-a-time, astrology WAS both science and religion: its origins are identical with the eternal questions asked by each.
Why are we here? What should we do? Why does it matter?
Why do I practice astrology? As I mentioned earlier, because it’s useful. As a body of knowledge, it’s a tool, very handy in the quest towards understanding those weighty questions, and other lesser (but more personal) queries:
What does he/she see in me? Where should I live? Will I ever get a job?
As I practice it, everything is hypothesis. I don’t make your decisions for you: you do. All I offer is advice, based on my own experience and those generally-reliable planetary movements.
No smoke; just mirrors.
