@splashartist, Do you think it matters on the person? Or just like every Libra is stapled to that one description and expectations with your sign?

@cristinelizabeth, There’s exceptions to everyone I believe. I just use it as a general guide. From what I have observed over the years from many peoples failed relationships is that it does play a role in it for sure. I also find myself more physically attracted to certain signs then others which is quite funny.

certain sign = certain energy that fits together perfectly with other certain energy at certain times of your life. all energy is useful in life. period.

@cristinelizabeth, im kinda up in the air about it. I don’t know whether to believe it but at the same time there have been truths behind it, in my own personal experiences. Could be coincidences but then again who knows. Not I.

I’m skeptical of astrology but I can’t help but notice when someone’s sign matches their personality, which does happen a lot.

Sign compatibility, maybe.

I’ve gotten along famously with every Aquarius I’ve ever known, but this is just subjective, retrospective examination.

Since people from many cultures have written about it for thousands of years, it might not be that absurd to take it into consideration. For example:
The moon’s gravity affects the tides and menstrual cycles.
People born in summer months have better psychological health in the long run.
Hormone levels fluctuate throughout the year depending on the season.
That being said, these could just be the ways of the world and have nothing to do with the planets.

Jung and Gauqelin did some solid research into the topic. You could check out their work. Most of the other info on the net is shady, though.

Could someone explain to me why people believe in Astrology? What do clumps of rocks and dirt floating around pockets of gas have anything to do with someone’s life?

@kellah,
I get this result,

and then this one

http://www.astrology.com/love-compatibility-capricorn-libra/2-d-lvmt-capricorn_libra

?? Hmm..

@drakonerythros, Umm, We are all made of the stars, the periodic table, those elements are heavy minerals and come from stars, we are made of oxygen, hydrogen. we are the universe .

@drakonerythros, Something to do with synchronicity, spiritual realms, not pretending as if we know and are in control of everything and such. It’s speculative but ancient people invested a lot time in it, so I think it’s worth entertaining the thought.

Why would a cell have any reason to believe anything matters beyond its membrane?

@boribori90, Thanks, I appreciate the response. I wasn’t dismissing it, just curious as to why some people choose to believe in it.

@AutumnMan, What if our perception of a person and their astrological sign are just a placebo effect? In other words, we may know a person and then read about their astrology sign and since subconsciously we know that this description supposedly “reflects” them we can’t help but see the similarities. But what if this person lies and says they are a Taurus when in reality they are an Aries by birth date; are we not going to read the description of a Taurus and say “Wow, this is just like you!” Or it could be that each person possesses certain aspects of each astrology sign but because of life experiences or whatever they inadvertently repress some of those traits. Who really knows though.

@cristinelizabeth, i dont think any ‘internet’ compatability site is right personally, I think it comes from what you think as a personally. like @splashartist, said, I think its more of a general thing than anything. For example, i notice Vergos seem to stay in my life longer and teach me alot, and I am much more attracted physically and mentally to leos and libras. I also notice I tend to clash with leos alot, maybe being the same sign as myself? I dont know. The point im trying to get at is, if you listen to yourself, you will probably see who your ‘compatible’ with.

@cristinelizabeth, Ahhhhh I have to point this out, but I don’t mean to sound like a dick (but I probably will)

Dog poop is made of the same stuff as us, but that doesn’t mean if we let Fido poop near the fire hydrant we’re going to have better financial luck instead of him pooping in the garden.

That was not a very good response to @drakonerythros, question, and I’m surprised he accepted it.

As for the original question of this post, I’m in the air about it too. It’s one of those theories that could go either way for me. I am leaning a bit more to the “it’s hogwash” side of things though…

@xyver, Lol honesty that scenario in my perspective has nothing to do with anything. But I also don’t understand why it wasn’t an alright response, I suppose it was kind of biased based on my current theories. I apologize @drakonerythros,
@kellah, Yeah makes sense, @maryalice, I thought about the prejudice thing also, trying not to base their whole life on their sign. Lol.
Reading your daily horoscope though sometimes is spot on,,, Mine was yesterday.

@maryalice, Well, I should have said that most of my closest friends before I discovered astrology were Aquarians.

But the points you make are certainly valid. The first point is similar to what the Forer effect posits. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forer_effect
The second point could also be valid because an individual’s sun sign is only a fraction of who they supposedly are according to astrology.

Maybe both astrology and western reductionist science are two sides of the same coin. The yin and the yang.

@splashartist, My best friends are fellow Leos. Sure we constantly strive to be the “alpha” but its all in good spirit. I have never met a leo I clashed with. Interesting.

@freeskier2oo4, There ya go! I’m sure it can work just fine but there will probably be some level of competition to an extent.

I’m not sure what to think. My cousin is born late in November (almost exactly three months before me), two of my best friends are born late in August, (exactly half a year after me) I am born late in February. I find – or maybe I imagine that – I get along with people better if they’re born either three months or six months apart from me. I guess, reading horoscopes while I was little, and me being an imaginative child, my thoughts became my actions, and my actions become fate. Maybe the zodiacs don’t really resonate with me, but my thoughts make it feel like it. But this is pretty much spot on (that doesn’t mean that’s all there is to me):

Pisces Strength Keywords:

– Compassionate
– Adaptable
– Accepting
– Devoted
– Imaginative

Pisces Weakness Keywords:

– Oversensitive
– Indecisive
– Self-pitying
– Lazy
– Escapist

The same horoscope also states that I need other people to keep me on the right track, because if not, I float around in a dream world. I find this to be true, but isn’t it like that for everyone though?

@ARCANUS, I’m also pisces, and at the end of February, but never saw strength in being compassionate?

@beyond, How would you ‘gauge’ compassion, my friend?

@ojai, A part of me strongly believes that showing compassion is only approving and welcoming future suffering. On the other hand, that makes me an asshole.

@beyond, I think it’s definitely a strength, but can also be a weakness if given blindly. Compassion allows me to feel empathy, and to help people whenever it’s possible. But it’s draining to take on board everyone elses feelings, then it becomes self destructive. I have both good and bad experiences with it. But my mum and dad are like that too, and they’re not pisces.
