Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The difficulty for astrology is that it has been seriously debased by the "12 sizes fits all" Sun sign daily forecasts in the newspapers. I'm sure the casters are sincere in attempting to find forms of words that are resonant with what they feel, but they become so vague, with so many implicit caveats that, in essence, they become an art of deception.

Although I have never studied astrology, I am aware that most serious practioners are almost as scathing about these newspaper soothsayers as astronomers are. However, those of us who've had individual full charts done have a different view about what level of insight is available.

As I briefly mentioned last night, I had one done when I was 22. Back then I was a blokey bloke; jeans, scruffy T-shirt wearing beer drinking heavy rock slob (don't anyone dare say little has changed). And this guy told me to my face that I was transgendered. Okay, he fenced it around and approached it on the sly and was relieved when I acknowledged the truth behind his revelation but the fact is that I gave him no clue in my demeanour. He saw it in the chart.

So, far as I'm concerned, there's something in it even if I don't know what it is. It ain't all chaff.
