Vice - Why the World Is Still Fascinated with Astrology
Vice just released a video on their youtube channel about a skeptic's experience investigating astrology.
Youtube Description: "In the third episode of The Chosen Ones, host Gavin Haynes dives into the world of horoscope-obsessed astrologists based in his London hometown.
No matter how developed a society becomes, no matter how much they give rights to gays or develop nuclear fusion technologies, the idea of a future written in stars has been surprisingly potent to all sorts of people who are otherwise brain surgeons or lawyers or run F500 companies.
Gavin will put himself in the hands of lunar fixers, Indian Vedic astrologers, birth chart readers and whoever it is who writes the horoscopes in the Metro, to find out his personal destiny as a Scorpio and whether or not there is something we can all learn from astrology. "
My comment: Astrology has been a science since the beginning of timekeeping and has only become "pseudoscience" since the development of the scientific method because the scientific method is incomplete and therefor flawed in comprehending what it can't easily detect. Scientists live in an invisible box they can't believe in or disprove.
To me astrology shows you how the universal archetypes and how potentials can manifest themselves in your life because of the pattern of energies you are born under. It's not about predicting, it 's about knowing your inborn strengths and weaknesses.
