Luckiest off all signs. I'm not sure I can agree with that, but I can't speak for the others.


Obviously, I kid. I consider myself quite fortunate. I just know I cant gamble worth crap.

Although I did bet on white in the Nebraska white and red game. White never wins. They did this year. Gotta love an underdog.

But astrology ignores all the vast areas of space above and below the plane of the solar orbit. There are also way sexier and interesting star signs barely visible even with a good telescope. I want one of them.

I don't know a ton about this topic, but I do believe there is absolutely something of substance to it.

I worked in a large warehouse with a lady who came off as so loud and pissed off all the time...always was so grateful I didn't have to work with her. Next thing I knew they got rid of my section, and there I was, stuck working with this person. I thought it was going to be hell on earth.

We started talking, found out our interest and tastes were practically identical, just got along fantastically, and we were the best of friends just like that. We were friends for a couple of months when the subject of birthdays was brought up. Our birthdays were the same. We were also born 12 years apart, so both born in the same Chinese astrological period.

Sadly, she passed away a few years ago. I still feel as if there was a connection, vibe, whatever you'd like to call it that I have never had with another person.

Also have to add that my grandmother was a huge believer in astrology and natural medicines. Her parents came from Bohemia. Always found that interesting.

I didn't add much here, other than I believe!

I have learned that Leos are the worst people in Earth. Based on this info, tell me what sign I am.



I’m a Leo, and you’re either a Pisces or Scorpio. You feel that way because we won’t put up with your sheet 🤣


No, it's because you Leos needlessly challenge your betters (Aries, the best one) when you should know better.










.,,,,, but it’s so fun! I do love me an Aries though, they are so entertaining 😊

Sports stars, politicians, and many others dutifully consult their horoscopes before making a decision.

Do the positions of the stars, planets, moon, and sun at a person’s birth as charted by astrologers affect your life? Millions today believe they do. So you may wonder:

Are Horoscopes Really Helpful?

Yes, answer the ardent followers. Why do they feel this way? One person explained: “I read my horoscope every day . . . and I’d say about 80 percent of the time the things I’ve been told turned out right.” Yes, they feel that answers, or at least guides to answering their problems, are found in the horoscope.

However, are horoscope columns in newspapers and magazines really helpful? Observe what noted astrologer Alexandra Mark wrote in her book Astrology for the Aquarian Age: “These readings . . . have almost no chance of being applicable to an individual except on the basis of coincidence. But the power of suggestion cannot be overlooked.” Stop and think, would you want your life to be guided by mere coincidence or solely by the power of suggestion?

‘However,’ you may ask, ‘would casting a personal horoscope based on one’s exact time and place of birth be more accurate?’ Such a belief obviously is based on the notion that somehow the heavenly bodies exert a powerful influence on the lives of people. Yet how could this be true in view of the vast distances between the planets and the earth? Scientists have shown that the effect, if any, of the heavenly bodies on individuals is negligible. In fact, the very premise under which astrology was formulated, that the earth was the center of the universe and that the sun and the planets revolved around it, is false.

Can Horoscopes Be Trusted? (Awake!—1986)

AMONG the horrible crimes of World War II were those committed by Dr. Marcel Petiot. He made a living by offering people a safe passage from Nazi-occupied France. However, he murdered his clients, stole their possessions, and dissolved their bodies in a bath of quicklime. Eventually Petiot was caught and in his death cell admitted to the murder of 63 people. What, though, does this have to do with horoscopes?

Dr. Michel Gauquelin, who has investigated claims of astrologers for some 30 years, decided to use Petiot as a test case. He sent the doctor’s birth date to a professional astrologer, who worked out Petiot’s horoscope by computer. Gauquelin then placed in a French newspaper an advertisement offering a free, personalized horoscope to any inquirer. What he actually sent, however, was the horoscope of murderous Dr. Petiot!

Did anyone realize he had received the “wrong” horoscope? On the contrary! Writes Gauquelin: “I received a dozen enthusiastic letters of acknowledgement. Ninety per cent thought that the portrait was very true and expressed their personal difficulties well.” Continues Gauquelin: “Psychologists have taught that we all tend to see a mirror of ourselves in the horoscope; but it is still disquieting that these people should find a resemblance in a profile drawn to fit only one individual​—a murderer.”

And a thief apparently. One of the lowest kind. If you promise to help them reach safety from the Nazis, only to then betray them, kill them and steal their stuff, well, it doesn't get much lower than that. Such a dick move:

Just because I know these bits of trivia doesn't mean I believe them although I found it funny when looking up the wood tiger thing that my supposed horoscope for 2021 says that I will experience great career advancement making as much as double what I was before or more.

That actually nailed it.

I had a full-time position at work dropped in my lap in March. I went from contract work-from-home to full-time in office salary, and my rate of pay went to more than double twice a month what I was making once a month before. I got a raise at my 90-day eval, and now there is every chance that I could get promoted again.

But all that aside, I used to think I was a rabbit and the rabbit actually fit me pretty well personality-wise, but it could be that I am close enough from the change over between them that I tend to be a border person and mix of the two.

In fact, the very premise under which astrology was formulated, that the earth was the center of the universe and that the sun and the planets revolved around it, is false.

A few more details about that...

Astrologers insist that what they do is really a science. One of them recently wrote: “It is the greatest body of knowledge in human history​—bar none.” However, many reference works define astrology as a “pseudoscience” (that is, “false or pretended science”). What is the truth of the matter? How do astrologers go about making their calculations? Is their method truly scientific? The answer to these questions may have a bearing on whether astrology is for you.

Is Astrology Scientific?

In ancient times the earth was thought to be the center of the universe. Because the earth makes one full rotation on its axis every twenty-four hours, to one standing upon the earth it seems that the sun, moon and stars revolve around the earth.

Ancient astrologers concluded that these heavenly movements had some special significance for man. They noted twelve particular star groups or constellations to which they gave names of persons and of animals, such as Leo (for lion), Taurus (for bull) and Aries (for ram). The assumed circular path through which these stars and planets seem to travel came to be called the zodiac, meaning “[circle] of animals (or, living creatures).” Concerning the zodiac, The World Book Encyclopedia comments: “From the earliest times, men have divided the zodiac into 12 equal parts of 30° each. These parts are called the signs of the zodiac. About 2,000 years ago, each sign received the name of the constellation that occupied its position.”

Because of the movement of the earth around the sun, from the earth it appears that the sun progresses from one constellation to the next each month, making a complete circuit in twelve months.

Astrologers claim that at the exact moment of birth a person is especially affected by the constellation in which the sun appears and also by the one rising at the time on the eastern horizon at the place of his birth. Astrologers also say that the positions of the planets with relation to the stars and to one another at certain times can affect the individual favorably or unfavorably. This is especially true, they claim, at the moment of birth. A chart, showing these positions is called a “horoscope.” Supposedly, radiations from these heavenly bodies strike the newborn infant’s cells, causing hereditary changes that determine what type of person he will be. Is this really true?

University of Arizona astronomer Dr. Bart J. Bok says, No. He stated:

Studies of the stars and planets have shown that the amounts of radiation from these bodies that are received on earth are exceedingly small and that any gravitational effects are so slight as to be negligible in comparison with those from nearby objects.

“Apart from the sun, the moon is the only celestial body that regularly produces a force in excess of the gravitational force produced by adjacent objects at the time of birth. Only under the most favorable conditions can the gravitational attraction of the planet Mars equal that produced by the doctor in charge of the delivery.”

Even if the celestial bodies could affect a person’s cells and mold his personality, would this occur at birth? Leading geneticist Amram Scheinfeld points out:

“[The astrologers’] position that cosmic forces affect an infant’s personality at the moment of birth is genetically untenable. For this theory to be valid, the influence on the genes would have to occur at the moment of the child’s conception, not at his birth. . . . All their charts are plotted nine months too late.”

Because of this difficulty, some astrologers try to calculate from the time of conception. But who can determine that moment with precision?

What About Zodiac Dates?

There is another serious difficulty too. We remember that the dates for the signs of the zodiac were calculated on the basis of the constellations that appeared in them about two thousand years ago. At that time, for example, the constellation Aries could be seen in the “Aries” section of the zodiac. The sun would appear in this constellation at the spring equinox (about March 21) and would remain there for about thirty days. Zodiac charts give the impression that this is still true, assigning the period from March 21 to April 20 to Aries (see chart in the OP). But this is incorrect. The World Book Encyclopedia explains why:

“Each year, the sun crosses the equator about 50 seconds of arc west of the points where it crossed the year before. This westward movement of the equinoctial points is called the precession of the equinoxes. . . .

“Because of precession, the signs of the zodiac no longer correspond to the constellations for which they were named. Over 2,000 years ago the sun was in the part of the sky called Aries at the spring equinox, and it is still called the first of Aries. It is now in the constellation Pisces, and is moving on toward the constellation which is called Aquarius in the zodiac.”

So dates given in zodiac charts for the sun’s appearance in the various constellations are all one section off, or, as the same encyclopedia puts it: “Today, the stars of Aries are in the sign [section] of Taurus. Those of Taurus are in the sign [section] of Gemini, those of Gemini in the sign [section] of Cancer, and so on.” Horoscopes based upon the old dates are completely incorrect. Is something so lacking in scientific basis really for you?

Origin in Religion of Ancient Babylon

If you were to look into the history of astrology, what would you learn? Where and how did it originate? Professor Morris Jastrow declares: “The history of astrology can now be traced back to ancient Babylonia, and indeed to the earliest phases of Babylonian history.” Concerning the zodiac, The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia points out: “There is strong evidence that the zodiac was formed at Babylon about 2100 B.C. . . . Several of the ancient constellation figures have a remarkably Babylonian character, . . . and nearly all may be explained from Babylonian mythology.”

What purpose did astrology serve at its beginning? Professor Jastrow continues: “In Babylonia as well as in Assyria . . . astrology takes its place in the official cult as one of the two chief means at the disposal of the priests . . . for ascertaining the will and intention of the gods.” The sun, moon and planets were considered the homes of the Babylonian gods and were named after them. The priests believed that a correct interpretation of the movements of these bodies would reveal what the gods were about to do. Thus, astrology was religious from its beginning. It was a form of divination by means of omens.

Of course, devotees of astrology today do not say that the planets are dwelling places of ancient gods. But their faith in astrology amounts to the same thing. Why so? Well, has not modern astrology branched off from that ancient Babylonian superstition? Is not a branch of a tree still part of the tree? Also, what essential difference is there between believing that planetary “gods” or planetary “forces” govern human affairs?

Astrologers may avow that their practice is a science, but we have seen that evidence does not support their claim. The fact is that astrology today is nothing more than a modern offshoot of the pagan religion of ancient Babylon. Do you wish to become involved in such a superstition? If you do, what type of influence will it have upon you?

Continuing from last comment...

How Can Astrology Influence You?

If astrology is truly beneficial it should produce good results for all its adherents. But what do the facts show? British astronomer Dr. Harold Jones Spencer states: “I have had shoals of letters, many of them tragic, telling how the belief in it [astrology] has ruined homes which until one of the partners took it up were very happy ones.”

Astronomer Bart Bok points to another serious problem that can arise when people put their faith in astrology: “The danger is that if people really believe in it, it takes away their power to make their own decisions.” Do you appreciate your freedom to think for yourself and to use your own judgment in deciding matters? Would you like to forfeit that freedom by allowing lifeless, unintelligent stars and planets to dictate your every move?

But there are more serious objections to astrology than these. What could they be?

As noted earlier, astrology is a form of divination and also involves looking for omens. On such things, the Bible has quite a lot to say. For example, God’s view of such things is expressed at Deuteronomy 18:10, 12. But since I suspect most people here aren't interested in that (as described at 2 Timothy 4:3,4 as something people don't even want to “put up with”, preferring to listen to teachers that say things that 'tickle their ears'), I won't bother to quote it for you. I would like to touch on another aspect of such things as described in the Bible in comparison with the (scientific) evidence; allowing for an evaluation of the claims, statements and descriptions in the Bible about such things by means of the evidence.

It is true that astrologers have made some predictions that have come true. Does this mean that astrology is really good? that it can benefit people? God’s law to ancient Israel acknowledged that even a false prophet could make accurate predictions on occasion. (Deut. 13:1-3) What accounts for their ability to do this?

Of course, some things may be simply coincidences. At other times the language of astrologers is so ambiguous that it could be applied to just about anything. But did you know that the Bible does not rule out the possibility of astrologers gaining supernatural knowledge? How could that be?

The Bible associates divination and looking for omens with spiritism. (Deut. 18:10, 11) A person who practices such things can come under the influence of “wicked spirit forces.” (Eph. 6:12) Could such demonic forces convey knowledge of future events to someone here on earth?

Interestingly, we read in the Bible of a girl who “used to furnish her masters with much gain by practicing the art of prediction.” Apparently some of the things this girl foretold came true, as is the case with some predictions of astrologers today. But what was responsible for this girl’s abilities at prediction? The Bible states that she was under the influence of “a spirit, a demon of divination.”​—Acts 16:16.

The connection between spiritism and astrology is equally clear today. “It was and still is closely related to other pseudo sciences and superstitions such as palmistry, numerology, and the use of charms and magic,” says The World Book Encyclopedia. Thus, astrologer Sybil Leek claims to be a witch. And, in addition to his abilities at astrology, Maurice Woodruff declares that he is a clairvoyant and has extrasensory perception (ESP).

So it is the influence of wicked spirits or demons, not the method of divination itself (in this case astrology), that “accounts for occasional accurate predictions by astrologers. Showing that the particular method of divination (whether by astrology, casting lots or otherwise) is not really important is the comment of Professor L. A. Waddell:

“In recording several of the ways in which divining was practised in Tibet, a mediæval Chinese observer wrote: ‘Notwithstanding the variety of their methods of divination, and their unskillfulness in their mode of examining, they are quite frequently surprisingly accurate.’ This criticism still holds good.”

But in spite of a degree of accuracy, by far the majority of astrological predictions go unfulfilled. For example: Astrologers forecast earth-wide floods for the years 1186 and 1524, but no such floods occurred. In 1939 the leading astrologers of Britain said that there would be no war and, when that prediction failed, they foretold that the war would end the following year with the defeat of Hitler. But World War II dragged on until 1945. More recently, Hindu astrologers predicted that the world would end early in February 1962. Devout Hindus sat up all night in anticipation of this. But, again, nothing happened.

A survey was taken of the predictions of the three most popular astrologers of Britain in 1941. What did it reveal? One of them was right only twelve times out of thirty; the second, nine out of thirty, and the third made only four correct predictions in thirty attempts.

Astrology cannot give reliable insight into oneself or into the future. It is not lifeless matter revolving in outer space but the “living God” Jehovah who declares “from the beginning the finale” and so can tell mankind what the future holds. This he does in his written Word the Bible. (1 Tim. 4:10; Isa. 46:10) It is also this Word of the living God, not that of soothsaying astrologers, that “is able to discern thoughts and intentions of the heart” and so can help you to understand what motivates you and what will bring you real success.​—Heb. 4:12.

Sadly, this is what escapes most people who are into astrology, eastern mysticism and (new age) philosophy, infatuated by astrologers and gurus who do their best to keep people ignorant of the evidence for the statements in the paragraph above. These observable phenomena providing further evidence for those very same statements.

“For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the wholesome* [Or “healthful; beneficial.”] teaching, but according to their own desires, they will surround themselves with teachers to have their ears tickled.* [Or “to tell them what they want to hear.”] They will turn away from listening to the truth and give attention to false stories.” (2 Timothy 4:3,4)

“So we should no longer be children, tossed about as by waves and carried here and there by every wind of teaching by means of the trickery of men, by means of cunning in deceptive schemes.” (Ephesians 4:14)

Those of Taurus are in the sign [section] of Gemini, those of Gemini in the sign [section] of Cancer, and so on.” Horoscopes based upon the old dates are completely incorrect. ...

So you looked up the wrong horoscope and everyone in this thread already having shared what sign they think they are can now calculate approx. 9 months back from their birthdate, look at that sign in the Zodiac and then move over one sign in the right direction and restate what sign they think they are if they want to waste their minds and time, perhaps thinking they have nothing more beneficial* or productive to do or learn anyway. (*: for their minds to occupy themselves with)

“A fool will believe anything.”—PROVERBS 14:15, TODAY’S ENGLISH VERSION.

... They sift the facts, exploiting the useful ones and concealing the others. They also distort and twist facts, specializing in lies and half-truths. Your emotions, not your logical thinking abilities, are their target.

The propagandist makes sure that his message appears to be the right and moral one and that it gives you a sense of importance and belonging if you follow it. You are one of the smart ones, you are not alone, you are comfortable and secure—so they say.

How can you protect yourself from the types of people that the Bible calls “profitless talkers” and “deceivers of the mind”? (Titus 1:10) Once you are familiar with some of their tricks, you are in a better position to evaluate any message or information that comes your way. Here are some ways to do this.

Be selective: A completely open mind could be likened to a pipe that lets just anything flow through it—even sewage. No one wants a mind contaminated with poison. Solomon, a king and educator in ancient times, warned: “Anyone inexperienced puts faith in every word, but the shrewd one considers his steps.” (Proverbs 14:15) So we need to be selective. We need to scrutinize whatever is presented to us, deciding what to accept and what to reject.

However, we do not want to be so narrow that we refuse to consider facts that can improve our thinking. How can we find the right balance? By adopting a standard with which to measure new information. Here a Christian has a source of great wisdom. He has the Bible as a sure guide for his thinking. On the one hand, his mind is open, that is, receptive to new information. He properly weighs such new information against the Bible standard and fits what is true into his pattern of thinking. On the other hand, his mind sees the danger of information that is entirely inconsistent with his Bible-based values.

Use discernment: Discernment is “acuteness of judgment.” It is “the power or faculty of the mind by which it distinguishes one thing from another.” A person with discernment perceives subtleties of ideas or things and has good judgment.

Using discernment, we will be able to recognize those who are merely using “smooth talk and complimentary speech” in order to “seduce the hearts of guileless ones.” (Romans 16:18) Discernment enables you to discard irrelevant information or misleading facts and distinguish the substance of a matter. But how can you discern when something is misleading?

Put information to the test: “Beloved ones,” said John, a first-century Christian teacher, “do not believe every inspired expression, but test the inspired expressions.” (1 John 4:1) Some people today are like sponges; they soak up whatever they come across. It is all too easy to absorb whatever is around us.

But it is far better for each individual personally to choose what he will feed his mind. It is said that we are what we eat, and this can apply to food for both the body and the mind.
No matter what you are reading or watching or listening to, test to see whether it has propagandistic overtones or is truthful.

Moreover, if we want to be fair-minded, we must be willing to subject our own opinions to continual testing as we take in new information. We must realize that they are, after all, opinions. Their trustworthiness depends on the validity of our facts, on the quality of our reasoning, and on the standards or values that we choose to apply.

Ask questions: ...

Do not just follow the crowd: ...

Source: Do Not Be a Victim of Propaganda! (Awake!—2000)

Or see my signature and text under my profilename for the things I wanted to highlight the most in relation to what I said earlier about occupying your minds with (feeding your minds as I can put it now) and the last 2 Bible quotations of my previous comment (I used the term "beneficial" from 2 Timothy 4:3,4 earlier in this comment as well, my usage relates to what I mentioned about that text in my other commentary). If it's too much (what I posted from that article, I hope it's still OK, didn't want to skip the introductory remarks or the point about discernment, as it relates to the other subjects).
