I find this thread a very interesting window into the critical thinking skills of some of the imates of this place. This will help to better interprete/evaluate what you have to say on other subjects.

Thanks!

I find it rather more of an illustration how people simply adopt, remaining fully ignorant of the actual subject, other peoples opinions and prejudices as their own, instead of actually attempting to understand the subjedct and to make their minds up after a considered and informed review of the subject. In fact ANY critical facilities are disabed under a blanket of presumed, third or fourth hand "fact"....

It reminds of Castrati married to virgins giving advise on matter of pillow talk....

Cool. Now tell me about alchemy and how I should burn my copy of Pauling's "Nature of the Chemical Bond."

Probabilities, influences...... Sounds like whole heap of hot air to me.

Hence my point that practically all openly promoted supposed Astrological/Esotheric systems/products are as much pure invention without basis in reality as is the case for many Audio Tweaks. Hence my point of the SCIENCE of Astrology, not the Carny folk version.
There are audio tweaks that do work very effectively and reproducably - I know about one profound one that has passed double-blind testing with flying colours, and repeatably.
So just what is this SCIENCE as you describe it - I have invited you to elaborate, so by all means educate all of us about what exactly this SCIENCE is.

You may expect whatever you wish, however reality does not give a flying french coitus about what you expect....
Hmmmm, back to you confrontational side again I see.

Again, if you knew ANYTHING about the subject you would not have commented on one planet. It is not ONE planet that is the point here. Things are jolly complex and as with things where the data is plentiful the minus's and plus's average more or less out. Few people I have come across have any outstanding natal charts, yet virtually all outstanding individuals do...
Plusses and minuses averaging out to what ? - ZERO ?.
I thought as much.
You seem to be the expert on this subject, so educate us, enthrall us, enlighten us about exactly what this 'Astrology' thing is all about.
Also, just what is the significance of your attached drawing.

I find it interesting that you assumed both that my comment was directed at you and that it was negative. Didn't take much for you to then go on to making direct attacks at me from your own prejudices and ignorance about me.

Feeling a little defensive are we?

Actually, my comment was a corollary to yours, not directed at you. If you choose to take it personal, well that can't be helped, but it was never intended such.

Nice try, except you quoted me in your message and then starting going off about people not thinking for themselves. That makes it a little less general.
