Does this mean that NASA is endorsing astrology? I thought it was a silly superstition used for entertainment purposes and completely unscientific. Does NASA now have a department of astrology with a head astrologer? I thought they had an attitude about the difference between astronomy and astrology, so why give astrology props? IMO NASA is getting too far out there on the fringe by bringing this BS up.

As a professional astrologist..
...


What does it need to be a professional astrologist? I mean, there certainly has to be some established grades or schooling system. Or do you just use the word "professional" because it´s your profession

Then there is this:
Barnum Effect

Depends where you live, there are different requirements by the community. In EU is enough to be taught in any of the dozen variants of astrology, by acknowledged astrologist or a representative of a group. I had my time with a respected teacher from the Russian traditional astrology schooling system, yet I had to advance by myself after that, as astrology taught today is on damn low level. As in most mystic systems, who lived up to our days, astrology is aimed to hide the occult ways on which is built on, thus we have like dozen or more variants of pseudo-astrology today. So, a grade, or diploma, given by somebody, does not guarantee that the practitioner have any brains in his head. I personally does not advertise myself with the schooling I had, it would be like trying to sell Ferrari backing it up with guarantee based on farming experience. I use the word professional for the reason I have brains my my skull, the only thing that can make you decent astrologist. Hope that explain it all. Also, you are welcome to ask me if you need anything in the realm of what I can deliver.

Fox News always manages to find a new low to sink to. NASA is not in charge of defining constellation boundaries, that is the IAU and it is a closed book now. NASA posted a brief history of astrology on a page aimed at children, and explained the difference between the sidereal and tropical zodiacs. Ophiuchus is a constellation that is on the sidereal zodiac. The sidereal zodiac uses the actual constellations lying on the Sun's path through the sky, and those constellations are uneven. The tropical zodiac uses twelve constellations of thirty degrees each. (This ties in with 24 hour days, 60 minute hours and so forth. Apparently the Nibblers had six fingers on each hand. ;P)

Because the Earth wobbles on its axis over long periods of time, the sidereal zodiac and the tropical zodiac fall out of sync, hence "the Age of Aquarius," when the the Sun will be in Aquarius on the vernal equinox instead of Aries. As Phage pointed out, some astrologers, particularly in Asia, have always used the sidereal zodiac. In Indo-Arabian astrology the "lunar houses" are used; these are twenty eight constellations corresponding to the days of a lunar month.

Anyway:

Link to a popular astrological website telling you what your alleged qualities are if you were born under Ophiuhcus:

Really, Boncho, you seem to be losing it lately.

I appreciate your post but what gives you the feedback? How do you know you are a good astrologist? Do you believe in self determined lifes or in fate/destiny? What is the communities stance on the mechanisms behind astology is it on a spiritual level or science?

about your first point:
It is very hard to determine what part of astrology is a real deal and what is not. When you start make the difference between the two, you're good. I specialize in horary deviation and ma-haru cyclical interpretation. Natal astrology is what you hear most often, the so called "tell me who I am" reading, which is very tough job to be done correctly, due to the complexity of the charts. There are literally hundreds contradicting aspects one should pay attention to. You have to be a chess grand master to to it 100% correct. Yet most astrologers don't tell you this, while taking your money...

about your other point:
-things are not determined
-waysare determined

about your third point:
-traditional astrology is more like religion than science. Yet even 50% of the practitioners have no idea about the core principles there.
-modern variants of astrology are becoming more scientific oriented, however they are also resting on traditional astrology roots, trying to "mix" water with lead.
-there is third weave of astrology, which I call the Ass-troll-orgy. It is basically all new-age stuff you might imagine, intertwined with traditional astrological believes.

Well, there's Fox News and then there is Kylee Wierks who interpreted the NASA kids page as "revealing" something. I guess for her, it did. For others it was a kids page showing that astronomy has nothing to do with astrology. She seems to have missed the point.

Really, Boncho, you seem to be losing it lately.
He's been learning from the best.

A bit of fact + a lot of goobledegook + videos + large pics = pure awesomisitude.

He hasn't been working on varying fonts and colors so much though. Needs another course.

To me it seems that they get a kick out of bragging about their secret hidden knowledge in plain site. Most people are too preoccupied with trivial distractions to notice and these sick buggers know it.

They also know that those who speak out about it will be ridiculed. They are laughing their asses off at us.

Ty for posting this thread as I would have not found out about this most likely.

I hate to speculate but this gives me the feeling that they are aware something big is going to happen soon.

And this is how they will commemorate it.

This part of the article cracked me up:


3,000 years ago, astronomers didn’t totally understand how the Earth, sun, and stars moved. They also didn’t realize how vast the universe is.


Lol...we're still learning from them. Funny how they make us sound so primitive, we had the cosmos mapped, maybe with some outside help
