    Why astrology sometimes works and often doesn't

    I am a Leo, born on August 10, and the Leo traits fit me like a custom-made leotard. I have a good friend, also ostensibly a Leo , born on August 18. who is the antithesis of the Leo traits, his sign ought, were there such a thing, to be the sheep.

    The explanation, IMNSHO, is that one of the fundamental assumptions of astrology is false. The time and place of BIRTH are utterly irrelevant. Any influence upon the neonate which could operate at the instant of birth could as well operate in utero. Genetically, the die was cast long before birth, namely, at conception.

    It is in the genetic card-shuffle of conception that the "nature" part of nature vs nurture was established. Much of a person's destiny was established as the genes were linking up to form the DNA of the new individual. Electric, magnetic, and gravitational fields, cosmic radiation, and other factors can influence the structure of the newly-forming DNA. This is when significant mutations are most likely to occur.

    It is likely that all of these factors vary cyclically and that the cycles are of varying length. It is what was going on in the universe at the time of conception which is relevant, not what happened at the time of birth, except for gross congenital damage.

    Apparently, similar, but not identical, conditions recur at about the same times annually. This is the only reason that Astrology works at all, because, conception usually occurs about 9 months before birth.

    This suggests, of course, that the horoscopes and the astrologically predicted traits of prematurely born infants should be wildly wrong and closer to those for an infant born nine months after the "preemie's" estimated date of conception.

    This is something which can and should be studied . However, even if the period of gestation be normal, it is quite possible that the conditions which existed in, say, December, 1929, may not match exactly those in December, 1942, so that men born in August, 1930 and August, 1943 might have been conceived under very different conditions.

    What's Your Sun Sign?

    I thought it would be fun to see what eveyone's sun signs are, and also to see what people here think of astrology: Do you believe there is a grain of truth in it? Do you think it's fun but don't believe it has any value beyond being entertaining? Or, is it so ridiculous that you can't tolerate the mention of it?

    I personally am amused by it; and although I don't pay much mind to daily horoscopes, I would recommend to anyone who enjoys such things to get a copy of their birth chart. You need to know the exact time of day and place that you were born in order to make one, but if you can scrounge up those details, you can get a much more elaborate description that incorporates major signs besides just your sun sign like the moon and ascendant signs. Here's a site that will generate a free chart for anyone who is interested:

    http://www.astro.com/cgi/chart.cgi?r...gw&lang=e&cid=

    For anyone who does not already know their sun sign, here's a list of all twelve of them and their respectful dates.

    Aries (Mar 21- Apr 19)
    Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
    Gemini (May 21- June 20)
    Cancer (June 21- July 22)
    Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
    Virgo (Aug 23- Sep 22)
    Libra (Sep 23- Oct 22)
    Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov 21)
    Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
    Capricorn (Dec 22- Jan 19)
    Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
    Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)

    I'm an Aquarius, and although I haven't invested any belief into Astrology, I definitely find it entertaining. I have to admit though, a lot of my natal chart fits me pretty well.

    (After starting this thread, I can see that a poll like this one has been made before. It looks like it's been dead for nearly five years though, so I'm hoping this can remain open.)

    Virgo here, and the associated traits fit me well. Perfectionistic, methodical, and orderly to the point of OCD.

    Why is your sign significant ?

    I am a Leo (August 10, 1930, the Year of the Horse) I have most of the Leo personality traits very strongly developed. On the other hand, I have never found any of my horoscopes to bear any resemblance to the actual events in the periods of time they cover.
    I have long been convinced that the time of birth is irrelevant. The critical time in reproduction is not birth but conception. It is hard to conceive of any influences which could act upon the neonate but not upon the fetus in utero.
    And what influences could act upon either ? The gravitational and magnetic fields of the Moon and planets and any radiation emitted by, e.g. Jupiter are virtually undetectable upon Earth. Cosmic radiation is influenced by the solar and terrestrial magnetic fields which vary, probably cyclically. This, and the fields themselves could exert subtle influences, but when and upon what ?
    The time when significant effects might arise from radiation and magnetic fields is the time of conception. It is then, during the genetic "card shuffle", events taking place at the molecular level, that determine the genetic makeup of the human body to come. This delicate molecular process could be influenced by magnetic fields and radiation.
    What, then, have the planets to do with it ? Only this: they serve as time markers,
    indicating precisely where in the magnetic and cosmic ray cycles the critical linkages between amino acid molecules were established, i.e. precisely what the intensity and directions of the magnetic field vectors were and the intensity and kind of cosmic radiation present.
    Conception is the critical time when the genetic makeup of every cell in the resulting human body is determined . The only way in which birth effects the body is by possible congenital injury or disease, and to these, the time of birth is irrelevant.
    Of course, the magnetic fields and the cosmic ray flux vary not only with time, but also from place to place upon the Earth. Hence, the place of conception may well be as significant as the time. Modern astrology does take account of the place of birth, but, by then, the physiological development of the infant has long since been determined.
    It would appear that for astrology to work at all, it would have to be because the period of gestation is fairly uniform and many infants are born not far from where they were conceived. Many, but surely not all. I know of no studies of whether prematurely born infants show as adults traits inappropriate to their astrological sign.
    The time and place of birth are easily established. The time and place of conception are usually much harder to determine. Doubtless, this is why astrology has relied on birth data rather than those of conception.

    I used to be quite obsessed with astrology and had my chart read a number of times. I find much of it to be uncannily accurate. I am a Cancer and find most everything defining Cancer to be true about myself. Below are some key Cancerian traits:


    • Cancer is all about home. Those born under this sign are 'roots' kinds of people and take great pleasure in the comforts of home and family. They are maternal, domestic and love to nurture others. More than likely, their family will be large, too. Cancers will certainly be merry if their home life is serene and harmonious. Traditions are upheld with great zest in a Cancer's household, since these folks prize family history and love communal activities.


    • Cancerians are old-fashioned. They have a tendency to live in the past and hold past events close to them. Cancers can be quite intrigued by objects a with history attached to them — antiques, photos, souvenirs, and the like.


    • Cancers are usually conservative. They also tend to be patriotic, waving the flag whenever possible.


    • Cancers have a deep need to be secure and safe in most everything they do. Trust is very important to them and they are very aware of their environment and surroundings. Sun in Cancer natives have a strong survival instinct. They are protective of those they care about, and of themselves too. Most Cancers form shells around themselves and react by retreating into their shell and shutting others out when they are hurt or feel uncomfortable. They love to nurture themselves with food.


    • Cancerians are highly emotional. Because of their sensitivity, they are extremely intuitive and compassionate. They can also be touchy, clingy and possessive, but once given the support and attention they need, they will offer you their undying loyalty and love.

    I'm a very typical libra. Traits usually associated with Libra:

    Diplomatic / compromising, however possibly manipulative - That definitely IS me 100%. I place much importance on diplomacy and mediation yet some sometimes conceive it to not be entirely selfless. I also oft suggest a compromise.

    Cooperative - For a Bajuvarian yes, for the rest of the world No.

    Fair / balanced / impartial - I am, even though some seem to think otherwise. I ALWAYS have to act as a mediator with my friends.

    Idealistic (in relationships) - Yes, I believe in the good in my fellow man as well as women. A little naive when it comes to people's motives.


    Charming - I may lack many qualities, but I definitely have a fair deal of charisma.

    Sociable and easy-going, love having people around them.- That's me.

    Indecisive / changeable --- Oh, I'm afraid that's also me. Put me in a bakery or a pub and I'll change my mind as I go along in ordering. I'm even having trouble to decide which toilet paper I should buy.

    Peace loving - "Can't we just all get along?" ... Yes that line sounds familiar when looking into the mirror.

    Elegant / graceful - Yes, I do have a way with words and a certain composure which I tend to uphold. Some tend to think it makes me arrogant and snubby. I'd prefer to call it "eloquency" though.

    Refined / artistic / good taste - Of course.

    Pleasure oriented - I love beer, cheese and women. Guilty, I suppose.

    Gentle - Pssht, that was supposed to be a secret.

    Sensitive to others - One thing I hate about me is that I do care what people think of me. I wished criticism against my very person'd leave me cold, but I usually take things well to personal.

    Analytical,clear-minded and logical, however still manages to be gullible and influenceable, naive. - Hits the nail on the head.

    Very Romantic, strongly interested in the opposite sex. - Oh Rly? Jo Frly! ... I'm afraid that's me again.

    Cheerful - I can be very fussy, but I always see the humour in a situation. Hard to keep me upset for a long time. I suppose I could break and arm and see the positive in it. Unbroken optimism, usually cracking jokes at the most inappropriate moments even. Yup, that'sa me, Sigurd.

    Flirty / frivolous - Meee? Never ... Yes, I suppose I actually am the worst flirt there can be. And just because I'm flirting, don't mean I'm interested - I just enjoy flirting a little. Nothing wrong with a bit of cheekiness.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libra_(astrology)

    Gets even worse in the likes/dislikes points. And well ... countries associated with Libra does mention Austria.

    Either way, typical Libra here.

    EDIT: Addendum, it gets even worse when getting to other details. Libra is a cardinal sign ---

    According to astrology, Libra individuals (associated with the element of Air) tend to express their authoritative Cardinal Quality in a subtle and charming fashion --- me again!
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
