[This will, I hope, be my last post about astrology for a while. Until and unless, at least, some other nontroversy pops up.]

I post a link to this article without comment, except to say: well done.

But most astrologers reject Kunkle’s claims, convinced that the science of astronomy, and the methodological naturalism it uses to derive facts from detailed observation and reliable mathematical models, can’t say anything about who should marry whom or what lottery numbers they should play.

"You’re right, we can’t do that," said each and every astronomer reached for comment. "That’s not the point."
