Most people are pretty circumspect about astrology.   Some, including me, think there is a certain something to it but then again, Christians in the middle ages were exhorted to have no truck with the devil’s work, astrology and necromancers being seen in the same light as magik.

Seems to me that every group has its own esoteric language and a certain amount of BS to the rhetoric but there are also kernels of truth.    If there weren’t kernels of truth, then they wouldn’t have such devotees over such a long period.    Don’t want to expand that as it would set off a series of posts.
