Brief Exploration of The Validity of Astrology


Astrology is a loaded topic: whether discussing the actual concept itself, or discussing the relevance and validity of it. Broadly, astrology can be viewed as an archetypal system operating on the base belief that all things (humans, space, elements etc.) are somehow intrinsically connected.

I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
