Are you a big fan of astrology compatibility? If yes then what is your sun sign and with which sign you had or having the time of your life?
Do you believe in astrological pairings?

Absolutely not. Why? Because Astrology is rubbish and all its principles and assumptions have been scientifically falsified.
Just to give you two examples:
- Astronomers have calculated how the positions of stars and planets have changed over the last few thousand years. This was later compared to the astrological model. One thing most astrology-lovers don't know is that this model in fact originates back several thousand years and was never updated. This means that the model that is now used by everyone (including all those "quasi-professional" astrology charlatans on nightly pay-TV channels) works with an astronomical foundation that is no longer a reality. This again means that the whole charts are not correct anymore. Somebody who believes to be a Leo might actually be a Virgo or something like that. And YET, people who are into astrology claim "yes, the description fit 100% to my character!"
- Of course there have been tons of scientists who made studies in this field. Probably one of the most interesting ones was when a group of 50 people who previously had stated to believe in astrology were given a horoscope. They were told that it was a personal horoscope made about their individual characters. The test subjects were asked to fill out forms and write down how accurately they felt this horoscope described them (life, personality etc.). It turned out that almost everyone in the group felt like their horoscope was a perfect, accurate description of their own personality. At this point, the scientists revealed to the 50 subjects that they had in fact all received the SAME horoscope. And not only that, but the horoscope was also not about any of them, it was a horoscope once made for Adolf Hitler. Now, at this point any halfway intelligent person would probably acknowledge that clearly, astrology doesn't work. But here's the craziest part: when asked several weeks after this experiment, almost everyone in this group stated that he/she STILL believes in astrology. Now, that's really powerful stupid. It should be obvious to any person that astrology is simply about telling people what they want to hear, in as ambiguous and positive a language as possible. Scientifically speaking, it is complete bullshit and not rooted in any facts whatsoever (which is also why astronomers get pissed when they are equated with astrologers).1

No, I don't believe in those things. They're fun to read from time to time, but that's about it.1
