    Im a piceses...and i feel like it...I have seen or done everything, and life in general seems boring to me...with the exception of new art and entertainment.

    I eagerly await new music, movies, and toys...not much else...If you know anything about astrology...you know what i am talking about....whats yours? ...and does it describe your life in any way?

    But no, I don't believe in it in the slightest.

    No I don’t believe in astrology. I think it’s silly to think that the way all the stars and planets in the universe move around the sky is for the express purpose of telling your fortune.

    Ok. Then to answer the question, no.

    It's just another made up thing to give certain people money and/or power over others.

    Also, to give just one example of the thousands that show that it is total crap: twins.

    Horoscopes are a bit ridiculous but the whole "If you are a Virgo you may have these personality traits" type things are usually accurate, though of course they could all just be written in some vague way to the point that anyone could read them and go "THAT IS ME!!!"

    Any thread where Gig2005 posts wins as long as that GOB avatar is in place :D

    I don't believe in astrology. The movement of planets and such deciding fate not only makes no sense to me, but raises many questions. Do asteroid movements affect your day? Or Pluto, since that's not really a planet anymore. And as for the decriptions seeming accurate, they are because theyre so general, and often complimentary, so of course people think it describes them. And how come all horoscopes for the same sign don't agree with each other each day?

    While I identify with many of the supposed qualities of a Leo, it's probably more a fun coincidence than anything else. I especially don't believe in anyone's ability to predict my future based on the stars.

    Yeah, I'm more or less a stereotypical Taurus. Some of that might be exlpained as far as certain birthdays loosely dictating personality types due to maternal hormones and other unexplained biological factors. But's it's still bullshit far as the day to day stuff goes.

    Only as a method in which to classify people. Not on a predictive basis. As for chinese astrology, only to the extent that I'm ridiculously pleased that I was born as a Metal Cock.

    Hmm.. well I'm a gemini/cancer guy.. born on the cusp.

    Not a big fan of a lot of astrology, but use some of it.

    Number one rule of Astrology: Don't open you mouth for anything if Mercury is in Retrograde.

    Number two rule of Astrology: You can blame anything on Mercury Retrograde. :)

    Nope.
    The mere notion that 1 in 12 of the world's population must share the same character traits, or that a horoscope predicts the events deistined for so many individuals is far fetched for me.
    I'm a Leo: This makes me a "strong leader" apparently, which I can assure everyone is absolute rubbish.

    If I read a horoscope for Leo and it predicts "something from the past will return to you today" (for example), does that apply to every Leo on the planet? Of course not - By the law of averages it'll work for someone, with the odds being they're the ones who start to 'believe' in it.

    I don't believe in it. Every horoscope seems to fit me to some extent.

    I believe in a lot of weird stuff, but I'm severely skeptical of astrology.
