Astrology Sucks

I'm through with astrology.

I never believed it, yet I always read it anyway. I don't know why I've decided not to even read it anymore, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't have anything to do with my "Sun Sign". Turns out if you figure a little science into the magic, Aries aren't Aries - they're Pisces, which means I wasn't actually destined to marry a Leo after all. The question now becomes: how to do I break this news to the wife?

and yet, why is it that most of us leos have so many similar traits? i don't believe in astrology either, i love reading the funny ones in weeklies, but oh so many of my pisces friends stand out for their pisces personality.

Maybe people who get a little religious about their horoscopes eventually end up having certain aspects of their personalities accentuated by their astrologers?

I don't know - I just know that I'm quitting because I've always thought it was silly, and yet I've noticed it was often on the money. On some level, I don't want that superstition anymore. There have been days where my horoscope has told me not to do what I was planning on doing, and I've actually felt in my gut - geez, maybe my astrologer is right - I do have a bit of a funny feeling about this. Yet, if it had said "Go right ahead and do what you're planning on!" I would have done it with gusto. So, I was won over by what's said in the link: buying into astrology, even just a little, is weakening your mind.

I gotta say though, I do love Leos.

aw, crap. does this mean i'm not a taurus anymore, but an aries?? i'm going to have to scrap all of my taurus-based, self-depricating jokes now.

or maybe i can just replace the "bull" with "ram"?

"that's me -- the proverbial ram in the china shop..."
"heh. mess with the ram, you get the horns."

oh, this is ramshit.

You sound as if your begging to be persuaded otherwise on your negative views of astrology.... explain this. --Bri--

I'm not begging to be persuaded otherwise. Astrology was fun for awhile, like Santa. But it's over now for me.
