Anyone that claims it's a genuine practice and or 'science' that can accurately predict peoples future is unbelievably delusional.
Edit: Deleted common sense part, because clearly, if anyone actually believes 'astrology' it's something they're seriously lacking.
Interestingly enough you question the mentality of one who embraces Astrology. One can also find your statements qurestionable as they demonstrate you know so little of astrology and are presenting the tabloibal issues. By that token one can say one that is skeptic is also "lacking." Have you had a comprehensive birth chart done for yourself. "A simple yes or no would suffice.
For example... If a horoscope reads, "You will overcome a challenge today.", then that could mean pretty much have any meaning that you wish to attribute to it.
ROFLMFAO why does everyone come on here complaining about astrology and the daily horoscope. IT's entertainment!!! Get your own birthchart done!!! It's that simple. If youi know the date and time you were born you can map out where the planets were during your birth.
All these papers are designed to be ambiguous. SOme fools will accept it while others as you and I see that it is entertainment. The issue here is you seem to think it's all mumbo jumbo when for thousands of years it;s been considered not only a serious art but a very valid primiitve science. That so many say astrology works for them...who is wrong? THose that feel it works or those who don't do any studying but laugh at the daily paper instead of using as a tool to get in deapth of themselves?
