Blue Blazes and the "Science" of Astrology

(AKA, if you can understand this, you're doing better than me.)

Short version: my chart contradicts itself, making me an average person.

Long version(oh, boy!):
Sun in Capricorn

He is honest, reserved, circumspect, honorable and strong-willed. Quietly ambitious within the realms of the possible, he likes and takes on responsibility. He can work in the social domain.

Weaknesses: a bitter, hostile, disagreeable and mistrustful mind.

Moon in Aries

He is autonomous, emancipated, courageous. Self-assured, with energetic activities. He is ambitious and enthusiastic.

Weaknesses: impulsiveness, domination, aggressiveness, great impetuousness. Constant changing of job.

Mercury in Sagittarius

Democrat, philosopher, tolerant, respectful of laws. Likes foreign travel. Believes that everything teaches you something.

Weaknesses: free spirit, that likes adventure and will leap into hazardous and risky affairs.

Venus in Aquarius

He likes flowery language: he is very sensitive and detests anything vulgar. He appreciates independence in love, but idealizes and embellishes it. He likes to please and will do whatever is necessary for this. While always being frank, he is not always faithful.

Weaknesses: he is unfaithful, because he likes above all to please and will follow through to the end of any adventure that arises. Does not like barriers, likes liberty of action and does not like to account to anyone.

Mars in Pisces

He is choleric, boils over, and easily gets exasperated. He has difficulty in controlling himself.

Weaknesses: The constraints of society can provoke him to great anger. Religious extremists in particular can drive him insane. These rages can put him in very unpleasant situations.

Jupiter in Sagittarius

He is agreeable, seductive, engaging and generous.

Weaknesses: immoderate taste for sport and games.

Saturn in Gemini

He is systematic, ordered, meticulous. He is discerning and lucid. A scientific mind.

Weaknesses: problems with nearest and dearest, worries in moving or travelling.

Uranus in Libra

Well-developed artistic leanings. His balance can be upset by too great an independence.

Neptune in Sagittarius

Likes long voyages, things foreign, water.

Pluto in Libra

Brings changes.

At a certain moment of life, he can fight for a particular ideal but might abandon it along the way, being less convinced than at the beginning of its virtue or because he realizes that it is a losing battle. Conflict abroad or with foreigners.

The "Science of Astrology" seems to be somewhat of an oxymoron to me. I hope you didn't pay too much for that reading. That silly shit is a hobby of my youngest daughter's. She could have done it for free.

On the other hand some folks take this stuff very seriously and pay big money for these charts and readings.

My opinion judging from what I've read on this blog is that you are way too educated and intelligent to take this stuff seriously.

Have a nice day.

I predict you'll go see your mom Sunday or at least talk to her. I also predict you'll go shooting or hunting sometime in the near future.

Let me know if I'm wrong on any of my predictions.

I hope I don't see Mom soon. She died in January, 1996.

Assrot said...

I'm very sorry to hear that and please accept my apologies for bringing up what is probably a very sensitive topic for you.

I figured that beings it is Mother's Day tomorrow that you would be seeing or talking to your mom like everybody else.

I'm lucky enough that my mom is still alive even though I am almost old enough to be your grand father.

My thoughts and prayers will be with you tomorrow.

God Speed to you buddy.


J.R.Shirley said...

It's okay. Mom and Dad are both gone. It happens.

Good heavens, John. I'm a little surprised that you would want the Google hits that this is going to bring in. In my personal opinion and observation, astrology is one of the most useless studies ever to manage to glean the "ology" suffix to their name. I am saddened that it stripped the suffix from Astronomy, which is an amazing science.

The amount of ink, time, and effort put into astrology rivals many religions. I suppose that it actually comes close to the status of pseudo-religion.

No one bothers doing 'real' astrology since it was proven that the Earth circles the sun and is not the center of the universe.

The astrological mathematics first developed by the Babylonians and 'improved' upon for millenia was rendered impotent by the discovery the the Earth is just a so-so planet circling a so-so star on the edged of a so-so galaxy.

This touchy feely stuff is what resulted. It's simply the froth off the top of some fruitcake's head. Little resemblance to 'real' astrology if there's even anyone who's actually adept at the math today.

That's the problem, Byron-- it's a hugely complicated study that involves intricate calculations... based on a premise that isn't even nearly correct. And those that do it aren't even doing their incorrect science correctly (incorrectly).

It's a shot in the dark at a shadow that wasn't even there, with a sniper rifle capable of quarter m.o.a. accuracy, held by master sniper who's delusional.
