Re: Does Astrology Have Limits?

Dude, astrology is not recognised as a science or even as a working phenomenon unlike chemistry, astronomy and geology. A quick glance at encyclopedia tell you it is either ''debunked'' or pseudoscience. I attack astrology, are you serious?

A moderator can close this thread, anyways this was such a time-waster.

The moment people start expressing their own, differing from yours, opinions, you ask moderators to close the thread. Good one. Why did you title the thread as a question, if you already had a pre-decided answer and were not open to opposing views? Although my views on Astrology differ from Culpeper in that I do think it is a metaphysical and divine subject (not anything like Chemistry or physics), I do agree with them that this thread is a waste of time because the OP has not invested anytime in explaining their point of view, but rather in refuting that of others.

Excuse me, I am going to mention this for the fourth time, I've misunderstood the topics discussed in this forum, I thought we were trying to make science out of astrology. I've merely stated some (with which I happen to agree) of the obvious criticisms of astrology, if you check my posts you will see I obviously practice astrology despite those. I am obviously playing a devil's advocate in some parts to stimulate a discussion, I was not trying to be offensive to you. I also believe astrology is inseparable from its metaphysical and religious connections. My list of the Seven planets associations include the respective chakra, Sephirah, gods, alchemical and many other correspondences I happen to believe in. So please, excuse me if I came across as arrogant or offensive, because that would be hypocritical as well.

However, I also believe we can work on an exoteric astrological explanation, something that is allowable in current science, and something everyone regardless of beliefs can accept.

I only to say that everything, including astrology, has its limits. Perhaps as you note, it is based on the kinds of questions and fields of inquiry it may address. But it is still limited. And of course, this is just my opinion based on my human mind, temperment and experience. And while I love the heavens and beyond, I tend to lean toward the ground and the earth, and so see astrology more through that lens.

Truly wishing you the best.
Yes, and on earth, unlike as above, everything is limited, as I noted in my previous post.

Quite so. My take is that astrology rises from the mind of humanity and so is of the earth, so therein we may not agree.
Wishing you the best.

a board titled "Research & Development" certainly implies a "Scientific" approach

our forum is an amateur online astrological learning forum
frequented by non-scientists

NON SEMPER EA SUNT QUAE VIDENTUR

and so
it would seem that:

on the contrary, the discussion is interesting
albeit in an unscientific way

Rejoice that we have a traditional board at all
https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...ad.php?t=43946
aeons ago there was no Traditional Board
then
when after much contention 'twas granted
Modernists demanded a Modern Board
therefore
we now have both

and
now traditional comment is fine on General Astrology Boards
and also Vedic comment, if so inclined, even Chinese astrology
on for example on "Read My Chart" General Astrology board
