Zodiac signs: astrology

What's your sign?

I can't claim to believe in astrology but I think it's interesting. I feel like many on this forum have very dominant fiery signs.

I'm Aries decans (born between march 21 - 30)
"Performance during stretch-shortening cycle exercise is influenced by the visco-elastic properties of the muscle-tendon units. During stretching of an activated muscle, mechanical energy is absorbed in the tendon structures (tendon and aponeurosis) and this energy can subsequently be re-utilized if shortening of the muscle immediately follows the stretching. According to Biscotti (2000), 72% of the elastic energy restitution action comes from tendons, 28% - from contractile elements of muscles.

Believing in astrology is... well... crazy, to me.

By the same token you could believe that the Big Bang radiation that is still out there in the form of static still influences you. At least you can hear static, meaning it reaches the Earth, whereas the magnetic field or gravity pull of whatever star that's hundreds or thousands of light years from the Earth isn't exactly... influential.

sure but don't you think it's interesting how around the world, your sign is important in career and relationship success?
it's not necessarily a stong argument to argue that a lot of people believe in something... such as God for instance. A LOT of people believe in GOD. Does that make it real? No, but it makes it interesting to study. Same with astrology. Most knowledge you find online about astrology is total hocus pocus.

ALL knowledge you find about astrology is hocus pocus. Except maybe for the "meta facts" about it, like who founded it, where did it start, why do people fall for it, etc
