I received a job posting by a restaurant owner who admitted that she hires staff based on their zodiac signs. She said it made her staff more compatible! I called her to suggest that, just as in racism, she was hiring based on an accident of birth. Also that astrology was similar to religion, and to hire according to it was prejudicial. Also, I told her that if she hired only Catholics, or only Jews, her staff would also be more compatible, but that it was unfair and illegal. She said she wasn't breaking any law, and that the position was filled!
It'd be lovely if someone calculated the answers so far to make a list of how many of what we have so far :)
Me: Aries by sun sign, my guess for rising sign is Leo, and moon in Virgo. Of those Virgo is surprisingly strong, but usually Capricorn matches me best (if I read the descriptions of stereotypical sign representatives).
Other half: Taurus (also an infidel - no clue of the other signs as I haven't bothered with astrology for years) - also all my previous relationships have been with Taurus (or Capricorns or Aquarius)
Mum: Aries (but she's a fundie Christian so apparently Aries can swing both ways)
If you were a true atheist, you wouldn't be asking this sort of question about astrological mumbo jumbo.
The root cause of all the trouble is religion, which is mixed with business. The fact is many of the business are religious; the religious people will first help the poor because they will do what they tell them to do. Once they get the money and come out of poverty, they’ll continue to do the same thing.
This is happing in many countries. When we see the fact, no person is becoming rich because of the religions people, or all the rubbish stuff they do and teach. For example today the US is in debit of 8.5 trillion dollars due to bank bailouts. Now the point is where is this money? This money is outside with the people or business or other countries. So one needs to calculate how many people are become rich and new business started. The combined amount of money spend from world war two to the current war is 3.5 trillion. Again this money to is out.
It is this money on who’s backing new ways of business are started to get the money out of people hand’s, and astrology is one such business. The reason why astrology has survived is because; they help other business and change the perception of a person. Astrology also helps in controlling the crowed. As there are only 12 sun signs, this means you can divide the population in 12 different groups, and control them as you want, however, the visual picture is such, the 12 sun signs are the 12 horse of a chariot. Now you need a driver for the chariot, and there will be someone sitting in it. This is a democratic way of controlling people.
The only way to avoid it is to stop reading them, and discourage others. Try sending letters to newspaper both online and the tabloid to stop the printing of astrological material and replace it with health related material.
One should be aware, not to fight to stop these legal scammers, as what they are doing is business. If you fight business, you are fighting against your own country. These businesses should be dissolved and then replaced by a new business to fill the gap.

zodiac signs are a load of nonsense my mum used to read hers all the time and most of the time it was bull.
Of course zodiac and astrology are a load of bull but you can still have fun with them. Much like letting go for a couple of hours when you watch a 200 foot tall, radioactive fire-breathing lizard at the movies. I'm a Scorpio.
I'm curious which is the most popular moon-beam-crystal amongst atheists. I personally use the opal moon-beam-crystal...of course...because of it's therapeutic properties. I believe that Belle and Reg also use them. What god-denying atheists wouldn't? Right?
Almost the atheists I know use the opal or the baby-dolphin-teeth moon-beam-crystal (obviously one of the best ways to enhance your sexual chi). I'm pretty sure both Simons use these.
The real hard core moon-beam-crystal owner will have to be the red-matter-moon-beam-crystal. It's made from the rain water that has passed through a rainbow and crystallised when a moonbeam and sunbeam coincide with them just before the Leprechauns and Santa Claus arrive to catch the delicate dew and play high stakes texas holdem. Red-matter ones are best used when there is a new moon so that only the North Pole receives baryonic moon beams just when polar bears happily give up their chopped off front paws to make giggle-moon-beam-crystals (guaranteed to brighten your day). Red-matter-moon-beam-crystals are actually not red but are more of a see-throughy-transparanty-cleary-plasticky-glass-of-watery-colour. They help you get over addictions, cure bad breath and they make great toys for puppies. I think Dr. Bob and David use them...it's a total coincidence that they are both Christian.
But there are a handful of god-denying rationalists who prefer ivory moon-beam-crystals (all of the Canadian users like these because there's only one thing they like more than hot gravy and cheese curds over sizzling fried potatoes and that is snowy-white-shinny-crystals). They aren't made from elephant tusks as some good-natured-super-stoned-ecologists think. They are actually made from the ground bones of African-Albinos who were murdered in anti-witch-mob-attacks. There is a notable concentration of magnetic-quantum-synergy in these crystals and it's been proven through science and trusted shaman that they catch moonbeams quite reliably...the more expensive the crystal...the more exponentially reliable it is said to be. It also functions as a beer bottle opener which is handy for Canadians too. Unseen and Strega, who aren't Canadian, use these crystals as well. I'm not sure if it's for the bottle opening qualities or because they have a connection with Albino Africans.
Actually that's where Gallup, Pope and Ed come in. It's too complicated to get into extreme details but I think if we cast some turkey bones and say the lyrics to "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" backwards...it will all make sense...as long as we all have our moon-beam-crystals with us during a solar eclipse. I'll let you work out the details. All five of us can meet at your place? You'll provide the beer right? Also...if you have some frequent flyer miles it will help Pope and I fly across the ocean as I don't have so much money and I only fly business class. :)

I've been practicing.
I'm a Sag, too, if that means anything to you, Belle. Dec 14.
