Anyone here trust astrology?...serious question

i know it sounds lame and feminine and i dont trust it, i hate it believe me...but i wanna know how many people trust it

and what i mean is horoscopes and all that. love matches based on it...

do you think the month you were born in matters to how compatible you are with someone?

i mean if you have diff personalities of course but sometimes theyre for the best

i just got seriously stabbed in the heart all because of this and i just find it false and ridiculous

i find it hard to believe that every happy married couple is completely compatible based on their astrological sign

do you find it bullshit?

I think for the most part it's stereotyping. When you tell someone they're "compatible" they are more willing to work things out rather than breaking up. It's like a self-fulfilling prophecy. With that said, there are many things in life that we don't understand.

Heres my prediction about you based upon the location of the stars tonight:

You are very individual person, you like what you like, but sometimes can be indecisive. You appreciate the finer things in life, and are a smart person. You are friendly, but sometimes need to keep things to yourself.

Sound like you?

I know quite a few famous chinese fortune tellers (oracle? prophet?...whatever)

and they said those horoscope things are true to some extent, but they do not show the exceptions of some people and the details...

so they are accurate more than 50% of the time...but I wouldn't treat them too seriously...

Not at all. I'm a me-tooer. I hate what I like. I only like things that others like. Unfortunately that means I end up liking said things, and I don't like myself for that because I hate what I like as previously mentioned. I am a psuedoxenophobic dolt who couldn't distinguish his rear end from a hole in the ground, and feel I need to let everyone know that because I haven't the capacity to disengage my pea-brain from my fingers.

Don't believe it for a second, but I can tell you one thing - for some reason I am very attracted to Aries girls, which NEVER ends well. Ever.

that's as deep as my level of astrology knowledge goes.

You know due to the earth's precession, the dates of the astrological signs aren't the same as when they were originally thought up...

It sounds like you because it is a very very broad and general statement that can apply to many people, or at least what they think of themselves.

And no, I don't believe in any of this bullshit.

But please explain how you were "stabbed in the heart because of this"...

its a longggg story, one that goes back for years but it has to do with my ex. its like no matter what i do i cant get over her and ive still got strong feelings for her. she strongly believes in astrology, like as if thats the only thing to decide her future. and to this day she still manages to find ways to "prove" that we were never compatible...by these stupid love matches. and this is all going on without any communication. how? yup, on facebook... and it hurt badly cause i know how important astrology is to her. i finally got fed up and deactivated my account. who i was back then is not who i am now, i was weak and selfish...and i know thats whats sticking with her. thats who i was, thats how i was when i left

i cant do anything cause it worsens the situation so i just cut off all communication. and it sucks cause time is really precious with the middle eastern culture and relationships. its nothing of "get over her, move on", well it can be if you want it to be

EDIT: oh yea and its not like our REAL TRUE relationship was horrible, it was great

i dont wanna go into it anymore than i have, i just want to keep it on topic.
it hurt and its ridiculous

Guys through the ages have faked interest/belief in alot of things through the years to get/keep a chick, why is this any different LOL?

For example, my wife likes gardening, so I do too. Not that I dislike our yard, and it actually is very impressive with what she has done to it. But is it MY passion, nope, but she is, so it all works out well.

So it sounds like you need to start "getting it (astrology)", pun intended.

Listens to what she says, the details. Being Virgo with a Leo isn't enough of an explanation. But if you start listening, check a few web sites on teh details she tells/told you about, then show some level of comprehension, you MAY win over her obstacles that she sees.
IF she has given you details more specific than you are Virgo, but Virgo with moon decendant (etc.) you need to understand what she is saying, then demonstrate the opposite of what that reading may indicate.
But I really think, like was said about the garden above, is the real detail she is testing you on. Can you show some interest in something that interests her???

A bunch of those horoscopes are very generalized (like Jeep Jeep posted prior). I have yet to be freaked out because of a horoscope being so "dead on". I believe it's more for entertainment than anything.

On the other hand, I tend to always find myself with younger Scorpios and older Taurus women... (not at the same time)
