That's it exactly....

Over the years I've only met two people that were worth a darn...they were so accurate it was amazing...and they were married to each other....

Uh huh, but you do realize that this is in the pagan studies, right, and not general discussions? So, it's great that you don't believe, but if you're not pagan then why try to define words for pagans? Sure there are dictionary definitions but not everybody defines words the same.

I agree, astrology is the "crazier" of the two which is why I used the word astronomy. For me it's a valid swap for how I'm viewing the article and the issue in my mind. Because this article wasn't about horoscopes and instead was on planetary alignments and maybe its influence on our world then why can't we use the term astronomy? Who's it hurting? And if astronomy is the study of objects in space then the term seems fitting whether or not it's being used to discuss pagany issues. :side:

Most of the pagans I know study both astronomy and astrology since astrology is dependant upon the knowledge provided by astronomy...
