Sci-fi writer Arthur C. Clarke (b. Dec 16th) had the famous one-liner, "I don't believe in astrology; I'm a Sagittarius and we're skeptical." And many know the quote from banker JP Morgan, "Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do."
This quote about astrology from writer Isaac Bashevis Singer gave me pause: "In many ways, astrology, numerology and palmistry are corruptions of the occult because they have attempted to make a practice out of something that is essentially imaginative." His complaint is that the magic of the imagination is turned into "pragmatic, utilitarian systems -- dogmas and creeds which are the opposite of mysticism and the occult."
I think that in an effort to be taken seriously, the more scholarly astrology shows signs of what he's talking about. But the astrology I'm drawn to is one that doesn't check the imagination at the door, but is a fusion of many intelligences.
