Social consequences of astrology beliefs [ edit]

Want ads in China have been known to discriminate against certain star-signs. If you are a Scorpio, good luck finding a job there. We wish we were making this up.[22]

One last thing [ edit]

One clever thing astrologers have done is make each zodiac sign have a flaw that could lead to not believing in astrology.[29]

Our resident astrologer has this to say about your flaws:

  • Aquarius: Stubborn, and would hold on to their opinion of astrology.
  • Pisces: Takes on other people’s problems, and would thus meddle in someone’s belief in astrology.
  • Aries: Dismissive, and would thus dismiss astrology without knowing much about it.
  • Taurus: Cautious, and would thus be too careful in adopting a new belief.
  • Gemini: Poor Listeners, and would thus just shut out information on astrology.
  • Cancer: Moody, and would let this get ahead of the “logic” of astrology.
  • Leo: Vain, and would deny that such a system exists, as they must be perfect.
  • Virgo: Overly logical, and would refuse astrology for, well, the complete lack of logic in deciding stars decide your personality.
  • Libra: Indecisive, and would be unable to decide on astrology.
  • Scorpio: Hostile, and would not accept this new information if it was brought up by someone they disliked.
  • Sagittarius: Unpredictable, and would not accept this “True” information for god knows why.
  • Capricorn: Judgemental, and would not accept this hippie belief.

The problem with all of this is that it gives astrologers an easy way to get out of an argument about astrology’s legitimacy — “Oh, of course you don’t believe! You’re a _________, and they are __________.”
