about astrology? Skepticism can be a healthy thing. It counters
gullibility and keeps garbage from accumulating in the mind. But a
true skeptic should always be prepared to investigate a subject
thoroughly before reaching a conclusion. As I point out in the
this has not been done. Errors abound, even in extensive academic
studies. Most of the arguments against astrology seem to give
reasons why it should not be examined at all. I call this the “Lazy
Student Syndrome”. As anyone who has tried to teach can testify, some students
devote a good deal of their course time giving the instructor
arguments as to why they should not be required to learn the course
material at all. As I never tired pointing out to them, if they
spent as much time studying the subject, they would all probably
pass with flying colors. Many of the arguments I’ve heard against
astrology seem to fall into this category. “Oh, we already KNOW
astrology doesn’t work, so why bother putting it to the test?”
Because they Don’t know that astrology doesn’t work. They don’t
know what astrology is, what it claims to do, or how to do a
horoscope. That hasn’t stopped some scientists from conducting “tests”.
Unfortunately for them, what they tested was not astrology. One of
the main purposes of this site is to remedy this situation.
may still believe astrology to be false after studying the lessons
and doing the exercises, but at least they can say “been there,
you “Believe” that astrology works, remember: It’s NEVER a
matter of belief. It’s ALWAYS a matter of evidence. Too many
people think that all there is to astrology is to find out “What’s
happening to my sign?” and this is largely the fault of those
terrible so-called “horoscopes” that are printed in newspapers
and magazines. They are NOT real horoscopes and should come with a
warning label stating this fact. An additional warning should be
printed right at the top cautioning readers that “The advice given
here is so general that it should not even be considered as guidance
by a rational, adult human being!”. Some astrologers claim that
they need these columns as publicity so that they can then give REAL
readings to people. That is like a doctor trying to build up a
medical practice by giving away free snake oil. Astrology will not
make progress until serious astrologers publicly disavow and condemn
those misnamed “horoscope” columns, like I am doing right now.
lessons in this website are about
astrology. You can use it to get insight into yourself and others,
to forecast future trends in your life and make your plans before
these things hit you. You can also CHANGE some of these effects by
traveling twice a year, once on your birthday and again six months
later on your “half-birthday”. And unlike the “paranormal”
subjects, all the claims of astrology can be tested.
