Dude, even people who believe in astrology laugh at sun signs. --Kels 00:45, 21 September 2007 (EDT)

Yeah, I know. See the page on horoscopes, snigger snigger... we all eventually find shit we argue with here... humanbe in 00:49, 21 September 2007 (EDT)
Dare we note that Christ's actual birthday is most likely nowhere near Dec. 25th? And that the only reason that day was chosen was to woo Romans who celeb'd the Solstice at about that time?-αmεσ (soldier) 01:19, 21 September 2007 (EDT)
And we still wound up off by four days... sheesh... humanbe in 15:28, 21 September 2007 (EDT)

Ophiuchus a hoax?[edit]

The hell, no it ain't. That was astrologers (and the people who believe in them) getting their shit ruined.

Honestly, it astounds me that people are complaining (even people who claim they don't believe in astrology) that "their signs were changed". Guess what people - your signs never changed. You were just misinformed - for over 2000 fucking years. Raistuumum (talk) 09:01, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

To re-purpose a sentence from The Daughter of Time - as Opiuchus appears neither in historical accounts nor the astrological books then it is a non-starter (and anyone wanting to fuse Ophiuchus with the Serpent seed doctrine and Jörmungandr is free to so amuse themselves).

Issues regarding this article[edit]

Unfortunately this page simply emphasizes that its author thinks astrology is stupid, but does nothing to explain why. It assumes its own conclusions, rather than arguing for them rationally, and thereby manifests the same flawed logic that it accuses the psuedosciences of using. — Unsigned, by: Scott1234 / talk / contribs

Another problem[edit]

Of course, is precession.

For a truly accurate horoscope - read #all# the entries in newspaper(s) of choice, and select the one that suits you most. Anna Livia (talk) 17:11, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
