Scientists say there is a basis for belief in astrology – I knew it!

The magazine NaturalNews has printed an article saying that scientific research is  beginning to prove that there is a solid scientific foundation for astrology.  I knew it!  Before I studied astrology, I didn’t believe it either.  I thought it sounded interesting, but goofy.  Intrigued, I did some courses and the more I studied, the more I became convinced that there was truth in it.
 

Venus, planet of love.

The article says: ” Mention the word “astrology” and skeptics go into an epileptic fit. The idea that someone’s personality could be imprinted at birth according to the position of the sun, moon and planets has long been derided as “quackery” by the so-called “scientific” community which resists any notion based on holistic connections between individuals and the cosmos.

According to the conventional view, your genes and your parenting determine your personality, and the position of planet Earth at the time of your birth has nothing to do with it.  Then again, conventional scientists don’t believe the position of the moon has anything to do with life on Earth, either. They dismiss the wisdom that farmers have known for ages — that planting seeds or transplanting living plants in harmony with the moon cycles results in higher crop yields. Even the seeds inside humans are strongly influenced by the moon, as menstruation cycles and moon cycles are closely synchronized (28 days, roughly).

Researchers demonstrate scientific principle of astrology.
Skeptics must be further bewildered by the new research published in Nature Neuroscience and conducted at Vanderbilt University which unintentionally provides scientific support for the fundamental principle of astrology — namely, that the position of the planets at your time of birth influences your personality.

In this study, not only did the birth month impact personality; it also resulted in measurable functional changes in the brain.

This study, conducted on mice, showed that mice born in the winter showed a “consistent slowing” of their daytime activity. They were also more susceptible to symptoms that we might call “Seasonal Affective Disorder.”

The study was carried out by Professor of Biological Sciences Douglas McMahon, graduate student Chris Ciarleglio, post-doctoral fellow Karen Gamble and two additional undergraduate students, none of whom believe in astrology, apparently. They do, of course, believe in science, which is why all their study findings have been draped in the language of science even though the findings are essentially supporting principles of astrology.

“What is particularly striking about our results is the fact that the imprinting affects both the animal’s behavior and the cycling of the neurons in the master biological clock in their brains,” said Ciarleglio. This is one of the core principles of astrology: That the position of the planets at the time of your birth (which might be called the “season” of your birth) can actually result in changes in your brain physiology which impact lifelong behavior.

Once again, such an idea sounds preposterous to the scientifically trained, unless of course they discover it for themselves, at which point it’s all suddenly very “scientific.” Instead of calling it “astrology,” they’re now referring to it as “seasonal biology.” Read the rest of this fascinating article here.

In time, I am sure that more research will prove that the ancient art of astrology is absolutely correct.  The fact that Boris Johnson’s chart clearly shows he is a genius is not coincidence.  I don’t want to be petty, and to the many people who have laughed at me over the years because of my belief in astrology, (which I have studied in depth, may I say), you know I have laughed with you at myself.  I am not going to rub it in and say I told you so.  But I so did!

  1. Will you be Minnie to my Mickey?

    Please rub it in Angela. Please!

  2. Slap wrist.

    Ouch!

  3. Be good.

  4. This is a bit incredible because I always thought it was a load of claptrap.

    • It’s amazing what sometimes proves to be true when one listens to science and evidence and puts aside prejudice and propaganda.

  5. But when do they say I am coming into money? Because until the stars say that, I’m not going to listen to them.

  6. You shouldn’t. Then again, there is that other thing you want. That is probably in the offing. Drop the stroppy side and it will come a lot quicker (joke)

  8. Science will say the Universe operates according to complex patterns. Also that matter can be influenced by thought. Ask a physicist, “Is light a particle or a wave?” Their answer will be “It will choose the form you wish to observe.” I think these same principles apply to astrology.

    Sorry to get so existential. What you would expect from a Cap sun, Gem asc, Aqrs moon and venus…

    • Very interesting reply. Must mull it over in depth, thank you so much. (Gemini Asc. excellent communicator…..)

  9. I love her very much
    n i believe in god
    not in astrology
    whtevr all says,astriligy says
    she will b mine
