Science Debunks Sun Sign Astrology

I, for one, am glad to see this headline. Ever since newspapers began printing “horoscopes” to sell more papers, real astrologers have been complaining about it. Clarke Fountain says sun sign “horoscopes” are like “trying to funnel the ocean into a ketchup bottle.” There are some good astrologers out there writing these columns, and there’s no doubt that sun sign columns bring increased exposure, but they are just not accurate.

A “horoscope” is so much more than a sun sign, it is no less than an actual map of the sky at the time an individual was born. It includes an ascendant, Sun, Moon, planets, Chiron, asteroids, midpoints, angles, and that’s only the beginning. It then analyzes the relationships between each of those factors, and then studies their evolution. Although the Sun sign is the most important single piece of the chart, it is only one piece and strongly affected by the other factors. For example, someone with Sun in fiery Aries whose Sun is conjunct Neptune will take on characteristics of Neptune as well with a more watery personality. To make a determination from only the Sun sign is just impossible.

So I was glad to see that a recent analysis by Dr. Peter Hartmann, a researcher in psychology in Denmark, proved that

“When considering the current scientific standing with respect to Sun signs, it becomes clear that there is little or no truth in [them],” says Dr Peter Hartmann, who led the study in the May issue of the journal .”This does not necessarily mean that all astrology is without truth, but only that the independent effect of Sun signs is most likely to be irrelevant,” he said.

Sun Enters Capricorn Today

Happy birthday Capricorns! Those born when the Sun was in Capricorn are ruled by Saturn and tend to take their responsibilities very seriously. The mission of Capricorn is to master the material world. In doing so, they may face many challenges and failures, but depending on the other influences in their chart they tend to stay focused and continue their efforts until success is achieved.

Capricorn is tremendously practical and goal oriented, and every relationship and event is filtered through the lens of achievement. Will this person help me in my path? Will this job further my greater goals? But they also have a strong sense of responsibility and are dependable to a fault.

For Capricorns and others born with Saturn prominent in their chart, it is said that they are old when they’re young and young when they’re old. Often in childhood there is tremendous loneliness or a heavy burden of responsibility. But that hard work at an early age brings a strength of character that helps them to blossom in their later life.

Family and community is most important to Capricorn, and their sense of responsibility creates a strong sense of commitment in all of their relationships. As in their careers where they seek to build a successful life, they put all that they have into creating successful partnerships and families.

Capricorn is not all about drudgery and achievement – there is a magic to exerting one’s will on the material world and manifesting that which you desire, and that is the realm in which Capricorn excels. They understand better than anyone that prosperity is a gift from the gods, and they are unapologetic in their […]

Sun Entered Sagittarius Today

Happy Birthday, Sagittarians!

Although the Sun is just one element in the myriad complexity of the birthchart, it is the biggest single element. The astrological Sun represents our quest, our mission on Planet Earth. It describes the activities that we need in order to feel energized and complete. Sagittarians are on a quest, and they need freedom in order to fulfill their mission. Everything they do is very important, usually more important than what others do. 🙂 Ruled by Jupiter, they tend to be optimistic and visionary, and dislike rules and restrictions. They are curious about the world, but their education needs to have meaning. They want to learn about other cultures, about how the world works. Sagittarians also make good teachers, since they tend to seek mastery of subjects in which they are interested. They are bold and courageous, and tend to be inventive philosophers. They may be religious, and can be somewhat righteous.

The symbol for Sagittarius is the archer, and Sagittarians are always pointing their bow at new horizons and looking for new challenges. They are seldom still and tend to be always in motion. For this reason, they may be athletic or engage in sports or athletics.

In relationships Sagittarians tend to require a great deal of freedom and inventiveness. They are not the ones to sit on the sofa and watch endless reruns of the Sopranos. They don’t like to feel fenced in, and need a fair amount of stimulation. But they are lucky and optimistic, and their infectious enthusiasm can’t help but rub off on the rest of us.
