Here is a questionnaire from a sincere questioner who would like to determine whether astrology has any validity, but their only knowledge of astrology is from the “astrology” columns on the comics page. The only problem is – sun sign astrology will not hold up under any kind of scrutiny, much less something this well thought out. So we’ll end up with yet another curious seeker who never takes that next step to discover the real magic of astrology.
Some of you have written in support of “horoscopes,” telling me that they lead people on a quest for further knowledge and perhaps that is true. But wouldn’t it be better if the sun sign columns included an introductory paragraph explaining that the sun sign is only one part of a larger whole that includes a much more complicated picture? Perhaps then the true seekers would be stimulated to learn more rather than become disillusioned with the entire craft.
