Nah, it just proves the aliens don’t know how to read the latest articles in the astronomical journals.  LOL

It also proves Jupiter and Saturn are bigger than the Sun.

Well the orbits aren’t in proportion either.  I wonder what date has those relative positions of planets.

Moon in Jupiter, sign is up Uranus. If one is so inclined, one most assuredly must enjoy the pleasure and comfort of what one deems to be a feasable, and “rational” explanation for whom they are, and will be.
Wife into it to the point of making unbelievably more money than I do bookoo, because we are in the Hollywood area. I work. She works. She believes that what she does is of benefit to those who need some sort of spiritual guidance, so they pay. A LOT!
I work and it’s really hard and my mind is like a cat turd with the blue-colored flavor crystals all stuck to it. I suffer writers’ block at least thirty times a minute, and if I could actually make a deadline, the publishers would begin planning the funeral.
She is astro, and I am in retro. I have to live with those comments every day. Ephemeris or BUST!!

Astrology is what it is. Work is a drag.

When I get hit with this question, I tell the poor unfortunate who asked it that I’m an “Ophiuchan”. The Sun actually passes through the lower boundary of the constellation Ophiuchus (see http://tinyurl.com/35awo4 and the graphic in #8). If I see any sort of light bulb pop on behind the eyes, I explain that the Sun actually passes through 13 constellations. If not…oh well.

Cheers,

- Craig

i will usually answer their question in a genuine way then ask them something like “do you sacrifice virgins to thor or odin?”, while smiling pleasantly as if i really want to know.

I used to humor my friends and tell them I’m a Gemini/Cancer cusp, therefore I’ll a bundle of contradictions. Now I just look at people (friends and new acquaintances) who ask me this question (invariably after I mention my interest in astronomy) and tell them the truth: I was born under a bad sign. I’ve been down since I began to crawl. If it wasn’t for bad luck I wouldn’t have no luck at all.

If that doesn’t stop them I tell them bluntly that I follow science, not ancient superstitions. Yes, I’ve offended a few people, but I’ve had many more people congratulate me for my bluntness and ask what I’m drinking, then buy a round.

I love the Orion gambit, though. I’d try it if I hadn’t been born on Juneteenth.

Oh, I voted “Removed from the gene pool.”

You cannot have a rational conversation with someone who holds irrational beliefs.
