How accurate can be horoscopes?

  1. Nov 30, 2004 #1
    Do you read your horoscopes daily?
    How serious do you treat it?
    If the horoscopes say today you may have bad luck if you go out,
    will you believe it and keep yourself at home?

    I don't believe it at all.

    Horoscope is like fortunetelling, just bull****s :biggrin:

    Just fun, for the sake of being silly, not serious. You know, to laugh at.

    Laughing is immoral

    as a student of astrology for 14 years, horoscopes you read in the newspaper, internet, etc are a bunch of BS...they are made up to make money...if you truly want to understand yourself through astrology, get your natal chart done by a reputable astrologist who will tell you what your tendencies are and not what your future holds because every educated and honest astrologer will tell you that YOU are in charge of your choices, goals and aspirations within the boundaries of your personality (what a natal chart may show you) and the experiences you have gone through to mold your perspectives...

    *steps off soap box*

    I was born in 1969, 20th March, 6:15am,
    can you tell me what is my tendency?
    How long will i live?
    What kind of profession is the most suitable for me?

    Actually, there is a formula for death but it is considered unethical for an astrologer to actually do so. I did use the formula and it actually worked for the celebrity I chose.

    To do your chart I'd need your place of birth :biggrin:

    the last two questions are those only you can answer for yourself...to use astrology as prediction is not practicing correctly (IMO).

    Who invented the natal chart and astrology? How was it invented and by what means? I don't understand how a celestial body can suddenly influence you at the time of birth. So the moment your head finds air out of your mom a few stars rain some power down on you and you can now be decribed by a natal chart? I am very confused.

    astrology is extremely ancient in the most basic form, and it is based upon that all of life is one, thus the natal chart is sort of a mirror or reflection of what is going on with the geometric aspects of large planetary bodies...it is based upon the notion that we are of the same material at the most basic level thus the "theory" of astrology:
    as above, so below
    as within, so without
    as the soul, so the universe

    the mindset of many today is that we separate ourselves from the natual world instead of remembering we are a part of it...
