Astrology : Myth?

Disclaimer : I know this is a sensitive subject to many people, but this is just something I’ve observed. So if you think I’m wrong, just comment on it. DON’T send over a white van…
Also, by flaming me, you agree to give me exclusive rights to your house, car, assets AND your life. So, before you flame, think. Think deep. Consult your horoscope maybe.

So, here goes :
Why do people make decisions based on astrology? Is it a proven science? Have they ever been proved? I mean, how can an entire career be built around predicting the future based on how a floating rock or a clump of gas, thousands of light years away, moves?

Okay, I did some research, and apperently it’s been around for a while( well, duh! ). The greeks got all the signs in the sky, but can’t you or I find pretty much any pattern we want in the sky?
Also, this business of making financial decisions, births, and even shaving times based on “nakath”. WHY? So if anything goes wrong, is it “Damn you [insert name of random celestial object]!!!” ? People who do that pretty well deserve what they have coming!

And don’t tell me it’s just an ancient facet of Sri Lankan civilization only believed in by the rural peoples now. A guy I know in my school was made to have his first shave on a certain day at a certain time. Yeah. And how exactly does that help? Maybe the position of Venus at that moment makes his hairs stick out at an angle, thus making the first shave more pleasant. Okay, It would have been fine if you’re a virgin about to be de-flowered, but shaving? Come on People!
