What's fatalistic? I don't believe in astrology if that's what it means.

No,too unpredictable.

Yes. I think it's interesting to check out every now and then, just like it's interesting to see if you can avoid stepping on cracks, but I don't believe in it being more than coincidence, for several reasons, including its emphasis on Fate beyong our control.

Its all bunk. I don't believe in it. No one can tell the future except God and he aint telling us. But if you read the bible, it will give you ideas on what to expexct.

Think superstitious nonsense would be a better description. Both astrology and the Bible..

^Interesting. I would rather believe that there is an infinite, compassionate God controling my fate, than some stars.

How can giant, buring balls of gas, lightyears away determine the fate of insignificant crawling creatures on some rock somewhere?

No, I doubt it.

It's not the actual stars that are supposed to determine your fate, it is the way that different planets and stars are aligned in the solar system.

The alignment and speed and gravitational pull can affect the energies of the other planets and organisms causing chaos in life and the world.

No. And even though this is slightly off-topic, horoscopes always have no relation to my life at all.

in relation to horoscopes, you're right. The bible doesn't tell you that next Tuesday you will have a bad day, but it does say a lot about the future.

Many (most) of those who believe in Astrology and have studied it deeply believe that the zodiac is like a clock.

A clock doesn't cause the sun to come up at 6 AM, it mearly marks the time that the sun comes up.

The zodiac doesn't cause events to occure in your life, it mearly marks the events.

Some of it is quite clear. When the sun is in Capricorn, it's midwinter (December and January). Particularly in the past, life in midwinter is quite different from life in midsummer. The sun being in Capricorn marks the difference - like a giant clock.

I suppose it is a tad fatalistic, if you really believe in it, it could be a self fufilling prophecy. However, most horoscopes don't tell you specific events, they tell you what you might be thinking or feeling at a particular time, so you don't do something stupid. Not really fatalistic, in that sense, more like..good advice(?).

Maybe, but I know that I don't believe in the Big Bang theory.

Yes, although this question seems to be based more on whether people understand the question or not, since people have answered with 'I don't believe in it'.
Nor do I, but I do believe that it's definately based on the philosophy that most/all things can be predicted.
