Objections to Astrology
A Statement by 186 Leading Scientists

(The following statement first appeared in The Humanist of September/October 1975.)

Scientists in a variety of fields have become concerned about the increased acceptance of astrology in many parts of the world. We, the undersigned—astronomers, astrophysicists, and scientists in other fields—wish to caution the public against the unquestioning acceptance of the predictions and advice given privately and publicly by astrologers. Those who wish to believe in astrology should realize that there is no scientific foundation for its tenets.

In ancient times people believed in the predictions and advice of astrologers because astrology was part and parcel of their magical world view. They looked upon celestial objects as abodes or omens of the gods and, thus, intimately connected with events here on earth; they had no concept of the vast distances from the earth to the planets and stars. Now that these distances can and have been calculated, we can see how infinitesimally small are the gravitational and other effects produced by the distant planets and the far more distant stars. It is simply a mistake to imagine that the forces exerted by stars and planets at the moment of birth can in any way shape our futures. Neither is it true that the position of distant heavenly bodies make certain days or periods more favorable to particular kinds of action, or that the sign under which one was born determines one's compatibility or incompatibility with other people.

Why do people believe in astrology? In these uncertain times many long for the comfort of having guidance in making decisions. They would like to believe in a destiny predetermined by astral forces beyond their control. However, we must all face the world, and we must realize that our futures lie in ourselves, and not in the stars.

One would imagine, in this day of widespread enlightenment and education, that it would be unnecessary to debunk beliefs based on magic and superstition. Yet, acceptance of astrology pervades modern society. We are especially disturbed by the continued uncritical dissemination of astrological charts, forecasts, and horoscopes by the media and by otherwise reputable newspapers, magazines, and book publishers. This can only contribute to the growth of irrationalism and obscurantism. We believe that the time has come to challenge directly, and forcefully, the pretentious claims of astrological charlatans.

It should be apparent that those individuals who continue to have faith in astrology do so in spite of the fact that there is no verified scientific basis for their beliefs, and indeed that there is strong evidence to the contrary.

Can you do one for pisces and i think early october one dont knoo what that is maybe taurus??

Ur doing good to nice to read
early october would make her a libra (assuming her birthday's before 23rd oct). taurus is may/june

as a libran she's probably very diplomatic and sees all sides to an argument, finding it hard to pick one side. she's charming, easygoing and romantic and enjoys peacefulness. however, on the annoying side, she's changeable and indecisive, quite easily influenced and a bit gullible.

as a pisces, you're probably intuitive, sensitive, imaginative, selfless, compassionate yet secretive, easily led and vague. you're also probably gentle, possessing an amiable nature.

you're both good listeners and receptive to each other's point of view and you dislike taking part in competitive behaviour or aggressiveness in order to get your point across, you like to play fair.

she might sometimes feel, though, that you are too gentle and annoyingly vague when asked questions. she thrives on dialogue while you prefer to take in lots of ideas and ponder on them for ages before giving her a point of view.

you both love peace and need a harmonious atmosphere in your home. you both avoid conflict as much as possible though she, a libra, as fair as she is, tends to get aggressive on unjust 'enemies' (don't know what else to call them, sorry if that's a bit dramatic).

the differences between you, however, are that you have little sense of limits or boundaries and are comfortable in disorderly even chaotic surroundings whereas she has a very developed sense of proportion and symmetry and seeks order.

you are a generous and compassionate person and will give endlessly and tend to become involved in relationships where one person is the giver or helper (usually the pisces) and the other is the dependent one. she, however, seeks a relationship where both are equals and she's very aware on how much each person has 'given' or 'taken'. she wants balance.

Also, Pisces is very emotional, physically receptive and intuitive, while Libra is more unemotional and rational in comparison.

both of you are passionate and driven and work can be an obsession for you. when her will or desire, is blocked, she's prone to becoming angry. she wrestles with this side to herself and needs to learn how to release it in a constructive way for her own health

this relationship is likely stormy, emotional and fiery. there is strong sexual attraction but your feelings are not often in tune with each other. you may also experience, both of you, jealousy and possessiveness.

overindulgence can become an issue in your relationship... you may spend too freely on the wrong things, wanting more than what you can actually afford

well im 22nd june so sometimes gemini, sometimes cancer
he's 14th feb.
you're cancer he's aquarius:

you, cancer, are more attached to family, more nostalgic and more domestic than aquarius. he's very friendly but not as emotionally involved with family as you are. you become emotionally attached to familiar surroundings and you're inclined to live in one place for a long time, hating change. whereas he, on the other hand, is more willing to follow whatever direction that demands in his life require. he makes new friends and does not need as high a degree of intimacy as you do and so finds the transition to new surroundings a lot easier than you probably do.

you're more concerned with having financial and material security and are more likely to worry if circumstances aren't stable and secure. you need to be needed and want a level of emotional bonding and nurturing that he may be incapable of.

you both have a concern for people but while you're personal and respond mostly to family and friends, he has broader concerns and more universal sympathies; a general interest in human welfare. you may therefore feel a bit hurt and neglected by his attitude at times.

you're different in other respects too... you're sentimental and emotionally attached to the past, to familiar places and people and you like the security and comfort of the known whereas he craves new things and excitement and is rebellious or just indifferent to convention and traditions.

he, as an aquarian, probably also values personal freedom and he needs to maintain a sense of individuality, even in close relationships. you, on the other hand, are dependent on loved ones and might feel a bit anxious and insecure at his independence. he needs to be sensitive to your feelings and realise a rapid or sudden change can be a bit hard for you.

another difference: you're emotional and subjective, he's clear and objective. you can help him get in touch with deep feelings and emotional needs that he may have buried and he can help you get more clarity and perspective on your sometimes overwhelming feelings and moods.

there is a lot of unpredictability to your relationship. at best, it's exciting and unconventional and at worst you're frustrated by his unwillingness to be more committed to the relationship.

aquarius and single.... go on shock me lol
well firstly your best matches are supposed to be leo, sagittarius and gemini

Aquarians are friendly, humanitarian, honest, loyal, intellectual, independent, unpredictable, detached, unemotional, intractable, contrary, original and inventive.

They possess strong and attractive personalities. They fall into two types of personality; shy, sensitive, gentle and patient but also exuberant, lively and exhibitionist. They sometimes hide the considerable depths of their character under a cloak of frivolity

They have strong convictions and are strong and forceful but seek truth above all else. They hold their opinions firmly but are usually able to change them if enough evidence is given to prove them mistaken

They see both sides of an argument, which consequently makes them unprejudiced and tolerant of all points of view and people. This is because although they make not accept it themselves, they can see the validity of any argument.

They are intelligent, concise, clear and logical and are strongly imaginative and intuitive. This can be dangerous however as it can drive them into an existence where they meditate on abstractions that bear little relevance to life

With a cause, they are capable of such devotion that they may drive themselves to the point of exhaustion and even risk injuring their health. Aquarians need to retire from the world at times and become temporary loners. They are independent and refuse to follow the crowd. They have a good taste in the arts

They do not give themselves easily and can be accounted cold. However, once they decide somebody is worthy of their friendship and/or love, they exert an irresistible charm and make excellent friends and partners, willing to sacrifice everything for them. They are sometimes emotionally disappointed because their own high personal ideals cause them to demand more of others than is reasonable.

They are fanatical eccentrics and are liable to excessive detachment from life and society. Aquarians can be either a threat or a great boon for humanity. They are highly open minded. The negative sides of the Aquarian include a lack of integrity in broken promises, secretiveness or cunning. Simmering anger and resentment, rudeness or a tense threatening silence which may suddenly burst out in eruptions of extreme temper

i'm a firm believer that we do display characteristics which our star sign says we have.

i'm not saying people should read these and decide that if it's not the best match they should end the relationship and go find somebody who matches their sign. not at all and i hope nobody is doing that

but the person you are, the individual, really does match your star sign. i could link you to a website for your own star sign

im capricorn and hes a libra
quite a few capricorns... right, here i go

your libra boyfriend is probably very social and prefers a lifestyle which involves a lot of interaction with others. you, however, are more concerned with career and practical affairs and he probably wishes that you would lighten up a lot of the time and take life less seriously.

you're also a little old fashioned too which frequently does not go down well with libra. however, you do balance each other well in the sense that whilst you're contributing to the security, he takes the time to maintain social contacts

he's a warm and affectionate person who needs people to share life with, especially a loving partner. conversation, companionship and togetherness are very important in a libra whilst you are more self sufficient emotionally and afraid of neediness and dependency, as well as emotional vulnerability. he finds security in personal relationships whilst you find it in work, accomplishment and material success. you take life so seriously and you work more than necessary while he's more balanced and wants to spend more time than you socialising or relaxing.

you have to be careful not to harshly criticise or judge libra as there's a strong tendency for him to feel blocked, frustrated and discouraged by you which may surprise you as you will probably feel he's being overly sensitive to criticism. there's truth to both sides though... you perhaps do tend to be a bit over critical of him and he tends to be too sensitive to it.

your relationship will probably always have unpredictability, spontaneity and surprise, which you, capricorn, may not necessarily like :-/

it's likely you'll act as 'awakeners' for each other; one of you may open the other to something completely new and diferent which MAY change the way in which you view the world and your place in it. there's always the element of experimentation and being with one another encourage you both to be more free and impulsive than you may be otherwise

intellectually, you share lots of ideas and interests and this could probably be seen as a 'teach and learn' type relationship most of the time

as a taurus person, you're probably patient, reliable, warmhearted, persistent, determined yet jealous, possessive and resentful.

loads of virgos... he's a perfectionist, he's careful, diligent, practical, a realist, loves detail yet can be harsh, an over worrier and fussy

together you're very helpful to one another. both practical people, you work effectively as partners and would work in a marriage. you can build a rich and rewarding life together as you can both devote yourselves to one another and your children (lol, getting deep)

you are more emotionally steady than your boyfriend and he appreciates your consistent nurturing and soothing qualities. you both share an interest in food, woo. but virgo's is more the concern with nutrition whereas you just enjoy the goodness and taste.

you're both earth signs and probably enjoy gardening and camping or working with natural materials. you're both cautious and carefully analyse something before discussing a possible plan of action. you're quite slow in coming to a decision and you probably dislike changes but once a choice is made you'll go ahead with it. on the other hand, your boyfriend is more likely going to over worry, fret and can be really difficult to please sometimes. your even temper, emotional strength and stability though is comforting and makes it easier for you to deal sometimes, though, your lazy and sloppy side annoys virgo. a lot.

you both spark each other's imagination and creativity and spur each other on to take risks... you encourage each other's independence and your sexual relationship is probably as exciting

you both prefer a long lasting non-superficial relationship as opposed to the other types other people prefer.. ha

the mental support you both give each other is one of the big reasons why you enjoy each other's company so much. your communication is open and you work well together on practical things like chores and .. stuff.

however, you are a bit prone to arguments which make you both feel attacked and a bit ridiculed by one another. you have to be wary of hurting each other's feelings in things like debate and whatnot

bit of a perfect match really
Oh I like that! :p:

It's pretty much true all over I must agree except I'm not really into camping though he is. And although I might be a little lazy I'm not sloppy. We haven't had an arguement yet but we debate sometimes.

I like the last bit. :cool:

no, it's not blind faith. i'm naturally an open minded person and like reading about things, whatever it is. i like learning. so it just happened to be astrology at some point in my life. it interested me and i found it so odd and intriguing that i fitted so well into my own star sign's descriptions... i then observed my friends and they all fit their star signs.. my family.. same thing. i'm telling you, people i meet... i can guess their star sign fairly quickly and i get it right. are you telling me i possess magical powers?

Thanks for this; breakdown as follows.

(Original post by ph9)
i'll give you what i gave mayaillusion, i'll just change the star signs around for you

Thanks :p:

as a capricorn, he's patient, ambitious, practical, reserved, careful, grudging, pessimistic and fatalistic.

No at all except patient, which he is, and practical, which he sort of is.

as an aquarius, you're friendly, humanitarian, honest, original, perverse, intactable, intellectual and at times unemotional (i wouldn't be surprised if you told me he's a bit of a weirdo )

I recognise humanitarian, honest, intellectual and original to a degree. I'm really not that friendly; or rather, I act friendly but don't particularly feel friendly. The others are wrong for me.

you both invest a lot of time into work

Not in the least

and your interests complement each other nicely. he brings practicality, persistence, reliability and objectivity while you bring (greater) ingenuity, sensitivity and awareness of the complexities in any situation. a problem in your relationship is that it may become focused on exterior things which may make you both a little detached and aloof with one another.

This is true

you have a very independent nature and resists being dictated by authority, society or convention and has the urge to embrace the new and different. you like to change things. he, on the other hand, like tradition and are far more cautious about going into the unknown or changing the standard 'tried and tested' way of doing things. he is philosophically liberal but emotionally cautious

This doesn't ring any bells.

you crave freedom while he's responsible, committed and dedicated; he may not fully appreciate your free spirit.

True

you can both have difficulty letting your feelings and emotions flow. you intellectualise rather than feel and are often unaware of emotional needs. he represses emotions and is afraid of being vulnerable or dependent.

Could not be more wrong

you can both be difficult to 'tame' - there is a wild side to you both (perhaps more surprisingly for him, a capricorn, but it's there!). you're apt to appreciating the quirks and unusual interests of one another which others might find a bit odd. you might not be very settled together but you won't ever be bored either

Again, nothing familiar there at all

you both enjoy mystery and maintain an idealised image of the other.

No and yes.

sexual attraction to each other can be extremely intense at times and tend to be obsessive and difficult to control and understand. he probably feels mesmerised by you. you may both be jealous and manipulative of each other at times. your romantic love for one another is very strong and there is a sweet and tender quality to your feelings for one another.

That's probably right

you bring out the more refined and beautiful qualities in one another and this is partly what drew you together.

Not something I've noticed

your relationship is very intellectually based, amongst other things of course. you exchange thoughts, you study together, share information, talk and banter and speak one another's curiosity and interest in the world - these are all important aspects of your bondage. really, becoming more educated is a significant reason the two of you are drawn together.

True

however, at times the both of you will misunderstand, distort or confuse what the other is trying to say. you have to be explicit and unambiguous with one another. you may believe you expressed yourself clearly enough only to discover that he never got the message, same goes for him.

Also true
On balance I'd say not bad - but I would also say that I could make up a load of total rubbish out of my head and get roughly the same percentage correct. I'm not convinced.
