Whhy based on “the stars”/constellations? Isn’t this arbitrary/imagined…?
I should say that this question is Not asked to be specifically aimed against sidereal, which I am aware uses “the constellations”, I don’t really know much about that form of astrology

But why would either/any type of astrology rely Solely upon mythical collections of stars which are suppose to look like a crab or a lion?… :25:

Shouldn’t astrology Only be about the Planets

(Having asked this question I am really new to astrology and asking this to learn various opinions. I have no absolute opinion formed yet)

Some constellations are huge, others are tiny; The Supreme Creator gave us the Zodiac beyond what we can see, the stars are all moving at different rates; The Precession of the Equinoces isn´t the only thing that is causing a :78: - scape shift! Four planets claiming 90 degrees each with Rulerships and exaltations suggest that dissociating the planets and sectors of sky is more work than anyone should try for! Ectotherms and Poikilotherms might choose to subsume EVERYTHING!!
to Mythology.
Most of us have moments when T :199: :194: N :199: is what we have to endure; "Mid-life" crisis! The planet to planet interactions are the least deniable!
Grant Lewi pointed out that slow planets aren´t necessarily soft planets!

Yeah but is there any general agreement?, the stars aren’t just “the stars” , they are bundled together into groups which “supposed to” look like x animal here on earth

But then also western astrology does not rely upon the constellations

So if that is the case then we don’t have to incorporate
Unless you follow sidereal, where it is All they base the position of the signs from

:77: Things seen `up´ are bound to come up for interpretation; It would be easy to imagine Beetle-Juice ( Beth El Gi`iz ) with massive "surface features" on it´s expanding shell, there ARE NO dandelions growing there! Ray Bradbury couldn´t let go of the mass hallucination among telescopic observers that canals were linking :155: ian Riparian Farms. Quasars were supposed to be single monstrous :78: beyond the fringe of the believable Universe & it turned out they were just collections of very close :78:s
The Trantaloids are bound to have very `different´ animals/constellations along their ecliptic!
The Mayans could agree that `Scorpio´ is "Scorpio"
We really don´t have enough words of completely lost origin, history gets over-hauled, updating four Graeco-Roman stars to be Arch-Angel stars means individual stars are as important as constellations!
Twelve signs overlaying the four seasons is the best working Zodiac we can have!

Oh really, what other similarities are there between western and Mayan astrology?
