Things I Hate: Astrology

While as a kid I thought that learning I was a Leo (Lion) in Western Astrology and a Dragon in Eastern Astrology was neat, in reality it is all made up garbage. Being either or both does not affect my life in any way shape or form. Yet there are many places willing to tell others how their exact day will be on which sign they fall under. I remember hearing Carl Sagan's thoughts on astrology, and I agree with him that it's rather embarrassing that more people care about astrology than they do about astronomy. Though I will say if astrology shows any signs, it's how gullible people can truly be.

I don't believe it, but have a habbit to check out todays horoscope, when boring. Aways that write there does not happen to me.

I think of astrology as a fun pastime without consequence.

I totally agree with you and although I don´t take into acare these predictions I read them when I see a horoscope. I have a friend who is Capricorn as me and we are very different each other . Kisses:)

I remember when I was working and we would sit around at coffee break and people would read their horoscopes out loud. I think they thought I was a snooty so and so because I wasn't interested!

So, you are saying that I shouldn't wake up and believe what the horoscope in the newspaper says? Unbelievable!

My grandma used to buy those tiny scrolls from the vending machines that gave you your horoscope. Drove me nuts.

Linda said...

I have never been a fan of astrology at all!

I don't take it seriously. It's just for fun.
