Generally we try to keep 0's and 1's for out-and-out trolling rather than just nastiness in the heat of discussion.
More seriously, reiki has at least got the placebo effect going for it.
Astrology has more of the attributes of religion or mythology really: any value it has is pretty indirect.
At that time I was teaching big seminars and everytime there were 2-4 people asking me what I think of astrology. I would have loved to say (love the word afew used) piffle! But somehow I felt it was a bad idea. So I started learning astrology to have the prove that it is piffle. Well, I am still learning and am still fascinated by it. However, I would never use astrology to predict the future or make investments with it. :-)
What did learning astrology give me?
It teached me to think in visual, symbolic, 3D, network-thinking. Something that opened up a new world to me.
It helped me to look at my self. I was always fascinated by the question who am I? But found it difficult to think about that. Astrology helped to take on puzzle piece at a time, like for example looking at the combination of Mars in the chart. Then look it up and as is what they say true about me. If I did feel it was not true, I would ask but then how am I different from that. And so piece by piece I become more aware of my strengths and weaknesses.
And I also found after a one year course of psycholocical tests at the University, that a astrology is able to give just as good a profile of a person as do some of the tests. Now you can interpret that however you want to. :-)
Okay, this just the short version.
I never had much use for the tools, but I always found the ideas about mind levels useful.

You remember who you took the course with?
some of the best things are like that, i've found...
