Question Is there any truth to Astrology and Compatibilty?
I like to think of myself as a rational thinker. But the more I read some of these Tweets from @XStrology the more I wonder if there is any scientific proof or coorealation between the time of the year you were born, your personality type and who you're compatible with.

I'm an Aries and most of the things I read are me to a T. It's unbelievable. Most of the girls I'm attracted to end up being Geminis and Leos. Their personality descriptions are also dead on.

How do you guys feel about this subject?

I think these things are so generalized that you will always "relate" to whatever its said to you about your astrological sign. Theres no way you can find scientific proof to these stuff.

Personally I don't believe on this, but I guess it can be entertaining to read.

RE: Is there any truth to Astrology and Compatibilty?
It's basic cold reading. Here, i'll do your astroparapsychpatological profile:

"You appear confident and self assured, but deep down, sometimes you feel that it's not completely true. There are times when you feel that you are not good enough, but put on a brave face. You can quickly establish a connection with people, but there are times when you would just rather be alone with your thoughts. You are a loving person and care deeply for your family and loved ones, but you can be hard to worm up to someone. But once you get to know them and see them for who they really are, you can really open up to someone"

This is just off the top of my head, and it's probably not very good, but it can be said for just about anyone. Scientifically speaking, the position of the midwife and her relative distance from you during the birth has more of an effect than the position of Pluto.

Go look at the things posted about your sign and tell me if it describes you or people you know.

RE: Is there any truth to Astrology and Compatibilty?
There's no evidence for it despite numerous scientific attempts at detecting an effect, it violates the known laws of physics, and there are proven psychological phenomena like confirmation bias that much better explain why some people seem to think that horoscopes can give them useful information. It's bullshit, you might as well believe that the Earth is flat.

Chicks eat this shit up though. I wish I could suspend disbelief long enough to get through an entire astrological cold-read with a straight face.

The first 4 all describe me. It's cold-reading dude.

I totally agree with the stuff, Scorpio girls are amazing in bed and Sagittarius girls are sluts.

Is that BETA of me?

Truisms can be applied to anyone. A self-centered person feel the world revolves around them, they make that vague remark unique to them. Girl's mind does all the work in a cold read, tbh.

So to answer OP's question: Nope not at all.

RE: Is there any truth to Astrology and Compatibilty?
Astrology is an excellent tool for the seduction process. I don't use it as an opener, but it's very good for building an intellectual connection and developing sexual tension after you've broken the ice. After talking to a woman for a few minutes, I ask her "what's your sign?" and then, no matter what her response, I say "interesting" and pause for a few seconds to let the hamster wheel run. I'm conversant enough in astrology that I can almost always tell her something about herself either that she didn't know, or that I would have no other reason to know. Whatever you think about the scientific basis for it, I've been using it very successfully to pull for many years. It works, and women love it.

Like others have said, it's cold reading.

I do dig the Chinese zodiac though. My year actually corresponds very well with my personality, the Dragon. That said, I think that's just happenstance; not everyone my age is a 'Dragon.' What I like about the Chinese zodiac is that it forces you to choose, it's not simply truisms that can apply equally to anyone. It's interesting as a way of grouping people into 'types,' rather like The Art of Seduction.

Anyone got a comprehensive, simple resource on astrology for use in macking girls?

RE: Is there any truth to Astrology and Compatibilty?
Of course not. Because first off, constellations(which these astro signs are based off) are nothing more than constructs of the human imagination. The constellation Taurus for example is supposed to be a bull. But the stars that make that constellation are in no way bound to each other, they just appear that way from our particular location. So how could these unrelated stars have any more significance than any other cluster of stars? How could these stars influence our lives and personalities? Makes no sense at any level. It's chic crack so if a girl brings it up, I'll play along, but in the back of mind I'm thinking about how damn gullible she is.

I have no problem with guys using astrology for gaming purposes and to create rapport, like palmistry or any of that other bullshit. I just don't see how anyone could actually believe in it.

RE: Is there any truth to Astrology and Compatibilty?
When girls start talking about astrology, I readily tell them they are full of shit. Of course they don't like it, but it hasn't ever cost me a notch. Just steer the conversation in a different direction, i.e. - "I believe in things that are real, that I can see, that's why I like photography so much, as this one time blah blah blah *travel story * blah blah *have you ever been anywhere like that?* ...."
I have a low tolerance for incredibly stupid things that some chicks like, so I will be straightforward when they spew BS, and steer the conversation in a different way, and done right, it results in control and respect.

Ohh you're a Libra? I'm an Aries. You and I are supposed to be mortal enemies. We'd never work out. The sex would be amazing though Wink Laugh
