I agree with what you write. The inexactitude of modern astrology
does not prevent it from being a good indicator of trends. But the
same inexactitude also deters me.
My problem is that I don't want to be distracted in advance of what
may be or may not be a future however blurred.
I prefer to deal with it as it arises. There is more accuracy in that.
Love as always to you and thanks
I have been enjoying your occasional writings.

I certainly would not argue with your statements. But I offer, at the
same time, my own experience, as a demonstration that one can learn
from any discipline. Astrology may be partially understood in the
present time, and full of blinds, but it does ring true, to the mind
that is given a few real keys.

The study of astrology has taught me the cyclic nature of all
existence, the unity of all life, the interconnectedness and
interdependence of stars and planets, the cosmos and mankind and all
life. It has taught me to learn about who I am and what I am doing on
this earth, and to help some others see some aspects of their own
natures. Self-knowledge is the first step toward self-control, and in
this respect astrology can be quite helpful. Astrology helps me to
consciousnly adjust the rhythm of my life to fit more harmoniously
with the greater rhythm of nature, of which I am a part and within
which I live, and to help others to do the same, if they are
interested. I don't dispute the negative aspect of a study of
astrology that you present. But I want to express that this science,
inexact and abused as it is, is a wonderful tool and can be very
instructive and helpful in one's life.
