Famous Astrology Quotes to Inspire you

"Astrology is a science of tendeces and a fatalistic or deterministic approach to horoscopes and events is not called for.

I have been told that one of the reasons the astronomers of the world cooperate is the fact that there is no one nation from which the entire sphere of the sky can be seen. Perhaps there is in that fact a parable for national statesmen, whose political horizons are all too often limited by national horizons.

—Adlai Stevenson

An Astronomer who denies Astrology, is like a butcher who recognizes the brain but is unaware of its transmission of waves.

I don't believe in astrology; I'm a Sagittarius and we're sceptical.

Astrology furnishes splendid proof of the contemptible subjectivity of men. It refers to the course of celestial bodies to the miserable ego: it establishes a connection between the comets in heaven and squabbles and rascalities on earth.

—Arthur Schopenhauer

The signs of the zodiac are karmic patterns; the planets are the looms; the will is the weaver.

—Author Unknown

Learning astrology is like learning any foreign language. You already have the ideas, concepts, and experiences of your life within you; you are just learning a new language for what you are already experiencing.

—Barbara Goldsmith

Courteous Reader, Astrology is one of the most ancient Sciences, held in high esteem of old, by the Wise and the Great. Formerly, no Prince would make War or Peace, nor any General fight in Battle, in short, no important affair was undertaken without first consulting an Astrologer.

My mom's really into astrology and she's always telling me about the moon cycles and stuff like that.


The Stars are a long way off, and their words get somewhat dulled in the message.


Astrology is assured of recognition from psychology, without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.

—C.G. Jung

We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.

—Carl Gustav Jung

At the moment I am looking into astrology, which seems indispensable for a proper understanding of mythology. There are strange and wondrous things in these lands of darkness. Please, don't worry about my wanderings in these infinitudes. I shall return laden with rich booty for our knowledge of the human psyche.

—Carl Gustav Jung

The starry vault of heaven is in truth the open book of cosmic projection…

—Carl Jung

The puzzling thing is that there is really a curious coincidence between astrological and psychological facts so that one can isolate time from the characteristics of an individual, and also, one can deduce characteristics from a certain time….

—Carl Jung

The starry vault of heaven is in truth the open book of cosmic projection…

—Carl Jung

Astrology is of particular interest to the psychologist, since it contains a sort of psychological experience which we call "projected" -- this means that we find the psychological facts as it were in the constellations. This originally gave rise to the idea that these factors derive from the stars, whereas they are merely in a relation of synchronicity with them. I admit that this is a very curious fact which throws a peculiar light on the structure of the human mind.


The fact that astrology nevertheless yields valid results proves that it is not the apparent positions of the stars which work, but rather the times which are measured or determined by arbitrarily named stellar positions. Time thus proves to be a stream of energy filled with qualities and not, as our philosophy would have it, an abstract concept or precondition of knowledge.


Astrology is one of the intuitive methods like the I Ching, geomantics, and other divinatory procedures. It is based upon the synchronicity principle, meaningful coincidence. ... Astrology is a naively projected psychology in which the different attitudes and temperaments of man are represented as gods and identified with planets and zodiacal constellations.

—Carl Jung

That we can now think of no mechanism for astrology is relevant but unconvincing. No mechanism was known, for example, for continental drift when it was proposed by Wegener. Nevertheless, we see that Wegener was right, and those who objected on the grounds of unavailable mechanism were wrong.

—Carl Sagan

Astrology is one of the great languages of our individual psyche’s pulsing relationship to the collective dream.

—Caroline Casey

If you're an astrology nut, your zodiac sign is the guiding light that tells you what kind of day you'll have, and who to date, and what to read. And if you're an astrology hater, your zodiac sign is the thing that your friends who are into astrology keep bringing up to annoy you (as in: Oh, you think the zodiac is stupid? That's just because you're a typical Capricorn).


Love it or hate it, astrology is definitely a fun way to kill a few minutes on the Internet.


Astrology is one of the oldest and most accurate tools known to mankind.

We need not feel ashamed of flirting with the zodiac. The zodiac is well worth flirting with.

—D. H. Lawrence

The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time.

—D. H. Lawrence

We need not feel ashamed of flirting with the zodiac. The zodiac is well worth flirting with.

—D.H. Lawrence

Astrology is a Language. If you understand this language, The Sky Speaks to You.

—Dane Rudhyar

The goal of astrology is the alchemy of personality. It is to transform chaos into cosmos, collective human nature into individual and creative personality.

—Dane Rudhyar

The essential purpose of astrology is not so much to tell us what we will meet on our road, as it is to suggest how to meet it – and the basic reason for the meeting. Which quality in us, which type of strength is needed to go through any specific phase of our total unfoldment as an individual person.

—Dane Rudhyar

The Birth-chart has to be understood as the archetype or seed-pattern of one's individual being - as the 'symbolic' form of one's individuality, and therefore also of one's destiny, for the two are identical.

—Dane Rudhyar

If one were to bring ten of the wisest men in the world together and ask them what was the most stupid thing in existence, they would not be able to discover anything so stupid as astrology.

Astrologers are agreed that the squiggles called a horoscope contain some sort of message to be decoded…

—Dennis Elwell

Astrologers are agreed that the squiggles called a horoscope contain some sort of message to be decoded...

—Dennis Elwell

There should be three days a week when no one is allowed to say: 'What's your sign?' Violators would have their copies of Kahlil Gibran confiscated.

—Dick Cavett

It's because finance is so baffling that makes being an economist such a safe option. It nestles down comfortably with psychiatry and astrology as a profession where getting it patently wrong is just not a problem - and also, rather wonderfully, seems to have no adverse affect on their professional standing whatsoever.

—Dominic Holland

It's common knowledge that a large percentage of Wall Street brokers use astrology.

—Donald Regan

Linda loves an argument, and I like to engage, too, but she knows that I'm a poet, so I will engage forever. We are in the Chinese astrology of dogs, and we are forever snapping at each other.


Failure or success seem to have been allotted to men by their stars. But they retain the power of wriggling, of fighting with their star or against it, and in the whole universe the only really interesting movement is this wriggle.

—E.M. Forster

Astrology is a fact, in most instances. But astrological aspects are but signs, symbols. No influence is of greater value or of greater help than the will of an individual…. Do not attempt to be guided by, but use the astrological influences as the means to meet or to overcome the faults and failures, or to minimize the faults and to magnify the virtues in self.

—Edgar Cayce

The signs of the zodiac are karmic patterns; the planets are the looms; the will is the weaver.

—Edgar Cayce

Who needs astrology? The wise man gets by on fortune cookies.

—Edward Abbey

The way that I see astrology is as a repository of thought and psychology. A system we’ve created as a culture as a way to make things mean things.

—Eleanor Catton

Astrology's a moving system that depends on where you're looking at it from on Earth. My horoscope here in London would be completely different to down in New Zealand.

—Eleanor Catton

Astrology is like any other branch of knowledge. It can be used for good or for ill, properly or improperly, by skilled and unskilled practitioners alike.

—Elizabeth Clare Prophet

In defense of astrology, it can be explained that one's fate is not hopelessly written in the stars. One's astrological horoscope may be compared metaphorically to one's genetic heritage; it cannot be changed, but we can do what we may with what we are given. The astrological horoscope is simply a map of those potentials and limitations, and astrology helps decide how best to make the most of those potentials and work within limitations.


Astrology enables us to feel a connection to this lifetime, as if our existence holds actual weight as thanks to our origination amidst the starry skies.

Such is the way of all superstition, whether in astrology, dreams, omens, divine judgments, or the like; wherein men, having a delight in such vanities, mark the events where they are fulfilled, but where they fail, though this happen much oftener.

—Francis Bacon

Dreams, and predictions of astrology....ought to serve but for winter talk by the fireside.

—Francis Bacon

Whether the ice caps melt, or expand - whatever happens - the anthropogenic global warming theorists claim it confirms their theory. A perfect example of a pseudo-science like astrology.

—Frank J. Tipler

After a duration of a thousand years, the power of astrology broke down when, with Copernicus, Kepler, and Galileo, the progress of astronomy overthrew the false hypothesis upon which the entire structure rested, namely the geocentric system of the universe. The fact that the earth revolves in space intervened to upset the complicated play of planetary influences, and the silent stars, related to the unfathomable depths of the sky, no longer made their prophetic voices audible to mankind. Celestial mechanics and spectrum analysis finally robbed them of their mysterious prestige.


Dabbling in astrology is like carrying a lucky rabbit’s foot as an omen of good luck which costs us very little and might have some beneficial effects.

―Fred Singer

You know, I designed the Queen crest. I simply combined all the creatures that represent our star signs-and I don't even believe in astrology.

—Freddie Mercury

Astrology presupposes that the heavenly bodies are regulated in their movements in harmony with the destiny of mortals: the moral man presupposes that that which concerns himself most nearly must also be the heart and soul of things.

—Friedrich Nietzsche

One of the ways by which astrology tricks human brains is via the Barnum effect, which is the process by which individuals take general and vague statements that could apply to anyone and anywhere, and find personal meaning in them.

—Gad Saad

Every newspaper feels it must have an astrology column, and even in the Carleton University bookstore this morning, I found books on astrology for sale.

—Gerhard Herzberg

I was born during an eclipse. I believe very much in astrology. If you were born on an eclipse it indicates your destiny is chaotic.

—Gloria Vanderbilt

When I believed in astrology and numerology, people made fun of me, but today there are so many channels just dedicated to astrology and numerology. I now regret that I didn't start a channel on this. But then, I am happy in life. I don't dwell upon it.


Most people today still believe, perhaps unconsciously, in the heliocentric universe every newspaper in the land has a section on astrology, yet few have anything at all on astronomy.

—Hannes Alfven

The good news is that she is one of the nicest people in the universe. The bad news is, that’s because she always does exactly what she pleases. An Aquarius female is rebellious, headstrong, and contrary. She can be selfishly independent and exasperating, especially when she is running through the house screaming, “freedom!

—Hazel Dixon-Cooper

Females have always been the biggest consumers of spiritual hoaxes such as astrology, crystals, seances, and other metaphysical claims about the world that rest simply on assertion rather than scientific proof.

All anyone can see in a birth chart are tendencies that will become facts if he does not do something to alter them.

—Isabel Hickey

Anyone can be a millionaire, but to become a billionaire you need an astrologer.

—J. P. Morgan

Millionaires don't have astrologers, billionaires do.

—J. P. Morgan

He is a poor astrologer who pretends by the stars to point out another's destiny, and yet does not know his own.


Astrology is like religion itself, in a very equivocal state. There is a well-grounded reason for belief that it is a truth; but it is impossible for any man to read the details with accuracy. The quackery of astrology lies, like Pharisaical religion, in over pretensions.

—James Elishama Smith

The planets are God’s punctuation marks pointing the sentences of human fate, written in the constellations.

—James Lendall Basford

A wise man shall overrule his stars, and have a greater influence upon his own content than all the constellations and planets of the firmament.

—Jeremy Taylor

I'm a middle child, so I have middle-child syndrome. With a middle child, you always have to take in everything and adjust and maybe compromise a little bit so you're able to see both sides of an issue. I'm also a Leo - I love astrology - so that affected me, just being a lion.

—Jessica Williams

There shall be signs in the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars.

—Jesus Christ

There is nothing in astrology that approaches the normal level of scientific "proof", but there are intriguing patterns in the data that reveal something about the way we handle complex ideas and information.


Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.

—JOEL 2:28

A most unfailing experience... of the excitement of sublunary (that is, human) natures by the conjunctions and aspects of the planets has instructed and compelled my unwilling belief.

—Johann Kepler

The soul of the newly born baby is marked for life by the pattern of the stars at the moment it comes into the world, unconsciously remembers it, and remains sensitive to the return of configurations of a similar kind.

—Johannes Kepler

A mind is accustomed to mathematical deduction, when confronted with the faulty foundations of astrology, resists a long, long time, like an obstinate mule, until compelled by beating and curses to put its foot into that dirty puddle.

As in the instances of alchemy, astrology, witchcraft, and other such popular creeds, political economy, has a plausible idea at the root of it.

—John Ruskin

We are merely the stars’ tennis balls, struck and banded which way please them.

—John Webster

The boats that brought Puritanism, Quakerism, Catholicism, Judaism and Islam -- all the old world religions -- [to America] brought astrology and magic as well.


I'm a typical Capricorn. I'm hardworking, loyal, sometimes stubborn, and I don't believe in astrology.

—Jonah Peretti

Lurking at the most remote extreme of our solar system is, if scientists are correct in their calculations, an extraordinary discovery that could utterly transform our understanding of the sky above our heads. The possible existence of this new giant planet -- Planet 9 as it has been called -- has gripped the world of astronomy. But it's not just boffins in their observatories who are excited by this tantalising discovery. Planet 9 has dramatic repercussions for the world of astrology -- and for anyone who follows their horoscopes.


I am of the level with common Astrologers; who, with an old paltry cant, and a few pot-hooks for planets to amuse the vulgar, have too long been suffered to abuse the world.


Astrology reveals the will of the gods.


I personally think astrology is fun, and also completely useless, an opinion supported by numerous studies and social experiments. And yet -- not that I'm a psychic or anything -- I'm pretty sure astrology isn't going anywhere anytime soon.


Astrology is one of the earliest attempts made by man to find the order hidden behind or within the confusing and apparent chaos that exists in the world.

—Karen Hamaker-Zondag

Even though I'm super into tarot and astrology, I don't believe in knowing too much about the future.

—Kate Nash

I believe in a lot of astrology. I look up into the stars and I imagine: ‘How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form?'

—Katy Perry

They often say, “What’s the point in astrology if you can’t change your destiny?”. Well, indeed, you can’t change your destiny, but still, it helps to know about gravity.

—Kedar Joshi

Behold what is in the heavens and the earth! But revelations and warnings avail not folk who will not believe.


About astrology and palmistry: they are good because they make people vivid and full of possibilities. They are communism at its best. Everybody has a birthday and almost everybody has a palm.

—Kurt Vonnegut

We would be a lot safer if the Government would take its money out of science and put it into astrology and the reading of palms. Only in superstition is there hope. If you want to become a friend of civilization, then become an enemy of the truth and a fanatic for harmless balderdash.

—Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Astrology is like a weather report; it tells you what conditions you’re likely to face in the future. If the weatherman says it’s probably going to rain, you bring an umbrella. If you follow that advice, you won’t get wet.

—Lee Goldberg

There is a philosophy that says that if something is unobservable -- unobservable in principle -- it is not part of science. If there is no way to falsify or confirm a hypothesis, it belongs to the realm of metaphysical speculation, together with astrology and spiritualism. By that standard, most of the universe has no scientific reality -- it's just a figment of our imaginations.

—Leonard Susskind

Don’t laugh at the voice of the stars. They are far away, their rays are light and pale, and we can barely see their sleeping shadows, but their sorcery is stern and dark.

—Leonid Andreyev

I will look on the stars and look on thee, and read the page of thy destiny.

—Letitia Elizabeth Landon

The stars which shone over Babylon and the stable in Bethlehem still shine as brightly over the Empire State Building and your front yard today.

—Linda Goodman

Seeing our confusion, ancient sages like Parashara, Jaimini and Bhrigu bestowed the great intuitive science of astrology on humankind. In India astrology is called "the eye of the Veda" because with its help we're no longer blind to the forces of karma that drive our lives and determine the circumstances we live in, as well as shaping our attitudes and relationships. The sages themselves don't need astrology because they can see directly into the heart of reality. But astrology is like a prosthetic limb for the rest of us who're confined to far more limited states of awareness. It allows us to foresee the challenges and opportunities ahead as we pass (or fail) the curricula of the cosmic university.


Astrology’s roots lie in an ancient world-view which perceived the universe as a single living organism, animated by divine order and intelligence.

—Liz Greene

The controls of life are structured as forms and nuclear arrangements, in relation to the motions of the universe.

—Louis Pasteur

Without astrology man treads, as it were, in the dim twilight of ignorance.

—Luke Dennis Broughton

Horoscope signs are a lot like personality tattoos on your brain based off what month you were born in, even though the only way your birthday will actually affect your personality is if it's on Christmas, making you bitter and resentful toward Jesus Christ for annually upstaging you.


I've studied astrology for many, many years, and I feel like it's an incredibly challenging art.

—Lynn Collins

I know nothing of the science of astrology and I consider it to be a science, if it is a science, of doubtful value, to be severely left alone by those who have any faith in Providence.

—Mahatma Gandhi

Astrology, like any psychology, is able to predict the probabilities in a given situation because it relates experience to other experience. Experience itself is constant change, and any predictive judgment must obviously have a continual reorientation.

—Marc Edmund Jones

Astrology is like a roadmap of your life. You don't have to use your special map. You can ignore it for a while, if you choose, because you drive the car. But the more you veer off your path, the more roadblocks you'll run into and the more collisions you'll have. If you follow your map to a T, life becomes a superhighway!


Love it or hate it, astrology isn't going away ... but if you give it one honest look, there's a good chance that you'll want to know more, because it gives you a feeling that you have the inside scoop--and we all love having the edge on everyone else!


Astrology was so popular because it brings a sort of scientific rationale to bear on something we're all vulnerable to: a desire to know more about our own character and destiny. We really, really like knowing about ourselves. [But] in modern times, there are plenty of other candidates to fill the gap.


Astrology can clear up or mix up a person as much as any other psychological, philosophical, or religious mirror, a looking glass in the endless mirror hall of life.

—Markku Siivola

Yes, astrology is easy -- laughably easy -- to debunk using conventional methods and ideas. On the other hand -- and this is really the subtext of the entire social science debate ... convention is a poor guide to anything.


By presenting ambiguous, vague answers, astrology pushes the seeker to extract information that is really not so much there in the answer but in their own subconscious. It unblocks our minds and frees them to see things in a new way.


Astrology: do we make a hullabaloo among the stars, or do they make a hullabaloo down here?

—Mason Cooley

I admit it: as a sane and rational human being, I continue to be baffled as to why astrology works.... But I wouldn't be doing this for a living if astrology didn't keep working, consistently, over and over again. Frankly, I'd much rather be a plumber. Being a plumber pays well and only involves getting up to your ankles in sewage, not in people's love lives. Believe me, sewage is a lot easier to deal with.


To the medical man, astrology is invaluable in diagnosing diseases and prescribing a remedy, for it reveals the hidden cause of all ailments.

—Max Heindel

The first time I got into astrology was being in New York. I was like, 'Oh, this is a real thing here!' Now, I'll Google what your sign is and what my sign is to see the predictions of friendship, and I find that really cool. But that's the most I know.

—Michaela Coel

I don't believe in astrology. It's a lot of crap. I just think that's another thing you should throw out the window. Mysticism. Cheap. It's amazing that people still hang on to that after all these years.

—Mick Jagger

What it boils down to is that each person has his own ways of coping with trauma and grief, with the pain of life, and astrology was one of mine. Don't criticize me, I wanted to say, until you have stood in my place. This helped me. Nobody was hurt by it.


I have been criticized and ridiculed for turning to astrology, but after a while, I reached the point where I didn't care.

—Nancy Reagan

My love for astrology is a personal thing I try not to project onto those closest to me, especially non-believers. However, knowing a person's sign gives me some insight into his or her character. I always say there's no zodiac sign I can't enjoy. Knowing whether a person is a two-sided Gemini or a heart-on-sleeve Sagittarius helps me figure out the best approach to connect with him or her.


For all the non-believers still rolling their eyes at my allegiance to astrology, be honest: Can you admit some of your star-assigned traits are spot-on?


I don't believe in astrology. The only stars I can blame for my failures are those that walk about the stage.

—Noel Coward

There is something out there. Astrology is like a game of chess with an invisible partner. We set out the board and the rules, make a move, and then find that the pieces are moving, as if by an invisible hand.

—Noel Tyl

A belief in the powers of certain delusive arts, particularly astrology, has greatly retarded the progress of knowledge, by engrossing the attention of many of the finest geniuses the world has ever produced.


Though Astrology is like a deep ocean…anybody can get knowledge through going deeply in water and get some drops of nectar of this divine knowledge.

—Onkarlal Sharma Prmad

If you can perceive this wholeness, only then will you understand astrology: otherwise, you will not understand.


So few people admit to belief in astrology, but I am yet to meet anyone who doesn’t know their star sign.

—P.K. Shaw

Know that the philosopher has power over the stars and not the stars over him.


Astrology, or when the stars enlighten illuminated who dazzle a bunch of lunatics.

—Paul Carvel

Default is not in our stars, but in ourselves.

—Paul Krugman

Astrology is a cousin of racism.

—Penn Jillette

I believe in astrology and the spirits. I'm a Virgo myself.

—Peter Sellers

Astrology ... makes vague predictions that can always be adapted after the fact to fit observations, as we'll see. Astrologers don't seek causes at all, for a good reason: There isn't any cause to astrology. If you look for some underlying reason, some connection between the stars and planets and our lives, you won't find any. For astrology to sell, buyers must not seek out the fundamental principles behind it, because if they do they'll see that there is none.


Astrology is like a map. Like a roadmap, astrology is meant to be a useful tool to help guide you to wherever you want to go.

—Pila of Hawaii

Perhaps there is a pattern set up in the heavens for one who desires to see it, and having seen it, to find one in himself.


It is clearly evident that most events of a widespread nature draw their causes from the enveloping heavens.


I believe in astrology as much as I do in genetics.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Before a war military science seems a real science, like astronomy; but after a war it seems more like astrology.

—Rebecca West

—Richard Bach

—Robert A. Heinlein

A touchstone to determine the actual worth of an "intellectual", find out how he feels about astrology.

—Robert Heinlein

In the ancient and medieval world, the exploration of physical influences among heavenly bodies, and between the heavenly bodies and objects on earth, was generally called ‘astrology.’

—Robert P. Crease, The Great Equations: Breakthroughs in Science from Pythagoras to Heisenberg

Figure-flingers and star-gazers pretend to foretell the fortunes of kingdoms, and have no foresight in what concerns themselves.

—Roger L'Estrange

While a Sagittarian tends to be candid, there’s also a part of them that could be described as being more devious than Pisces, more deceptive than Gemini, and more carnal than Scorpio.

—Rosemary Breen, Horoscope Compatibility for All the Zodiac Signs

The Moon rules our emotional nature, how we react in situations, and what is needed in our lives to make us feel emotionally safe and secure.

—Rosemary Breen, Horoscope Compatibility for All the Zodiac Signs

The Sun rules our inner personalities – who we are to those who know us best.

—Rosemary Breen, Horoscope Compatibility for All the Zodiac Signs

Astrology is like a gateway drug to a more cosmic world view.

—Ruby Warrington

The whole of ancient astrology owed its origin to conversation with the cosmic intelligences. But by the time of the first centuries after the rise of Christianity, ancient astrology - that is to say, conversation with cosmic intelligences - was a thing of the past.

—Rudolf Steiner

As a curious Aquarius, astrology has always fascinated me, yet when I share my knowledge and passion about it with others, very few take me seriously--I mainly get laughed at, sassy eye rolls, or rude comments.


One thing I personally question is, why would someone pay to see an astrologer when you can get all your readings online for free?


There are many methods for predicting the future. For example, you can read horoscopes, tea leaves, tarot cards, or crystal balls. Collectively, these methods are known as "nutty methods." Or you can put well-researched facts into sophisticated computer models, more commonly referred to as "a complete waste of time."

—Scott Adams

Faithful horoscope-watching, practiced daily, provides just the sort of small but warm and infinitely reassuring fillip that gets matters off to a spirited start.

—Shana Alexander

If astrology isn't scientific because not mechanistically deterministic, neither is that which man has called "science." If partial knowledge of laws is science, then astrology is science.


Dabbling in astrology is like carrying a lucky rabbit's foot as an omen of good luck which costs us very little and might have some beneficial effects.


Before one accepts spirituality, astrology is very powerful, like a lion. Then when one enters into a deeper spiritual life, astrology becomes a tiny household cat.

—Sri Chinmoy

A child is born on that day and at that hour when the celestial rays are in mathematical harmony with his karma.

—Sri Yukteswar

But those who are of opinion that, apart from the will of God, the stars determine what we shall do, or what good things we shall possess, or what evils we shall suffer, must be refused a hearing by all, not only by those who hold the true religion, but by those who wish to be the worshippers of any gods whatsoever, even false gods. For what does this opinion really amount to but this, that no god whatever is to be worshipped or prayed to?


The good Christian should beware of astrologers. The danger already exists that astrologers have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and confine man in the bonds of Hell.


[The stars'] influence on our fate is considerably less than the influence of a banana peel, on which you can slip and break your leg. But there is no interest in banana peels, whereas serious periodicals include horoscopes.... It lifts his spirits. The whole universe revolves around him, and even if things aren't going well, even if the stars are lined up in such a way that the suspenders manufacturer loses his shirt and the individual consequently loses his job, it's still more comforting than to know that the stars don't really give a damn. Knock astrology out of his head, and the belief too that the cactus on his windowsill cares about him, and what is left? Barefoot, naked despair.


We are here to learn lessons and our birth chart tells us what our lessons are, what type of energy we possess in the first place, and how, by facing up to the challenges presented to us in life, spiritual growth will ensue. The birth chart is a 'tool' to guide us through our life. By understanding our basic make up, we can learn to make the most out of our positive points and try to improve on our weaker ones.

—Stephen Arroyo

Astrology is almost always about reading signs properly, but sometimes the content of those signs is less important than the fonts they’re written in.

—Sterling Asterix

Disbelievers and professional astrologers alike understandably denigrate sun sign astrology, piteously trivialized in horoscope columns that appear on the newspaper comic pages for a good reason. Not that they find it false, but professional astrologers tend to view sun sign astrology as the cheeseburger on the astrology menu, an item whose mass appeal is only matched by its lack of imagination. Without it, however, the study of astrology is like climbing a ladder that is missing its first rung.


Astrology is just a finger pointing at reality.

—Steven Forrest

Astrology had an important role in the ancient world. You can’t understand many things unless you know something about astrology—the plays of Shakespeare and so on.

—Steven Pinker

20th-century totalitarian movements were no more defined by a rejection of Judeo-Christianity than they were defined by a rejection of astrology, alchemy, Confucianism, Scientology, or any of hundreds of other belief systems.

—Steven Pinker

Astrology isn't fortune-telling, nor do astrologers speak of life being fated. As agents of free will, we always have a choice. We need to drive our lives in the direction we choose or else risk having life's events control us. We usually have more choices than we think we do; our horoscopes can easily suggest possibilities that may have been overlooked.


I am not psychic. I have to base everything on a mathematical chart. There are different algorithms and I put a chart together. The magical thing about astrology is you are completely unique -- no chart will ever be replicated again.


The present is determined by our past actions, and the future by the present.

—Swami Vivekananda

The question of all questions for humanity, the problem which lies behind all others and is more interesting than any of them, is that of the determination of man's place in nature and his relation to the cosmos.

—T.H. Huxley

The astronomer has a starry map of the past; the astrologer, of our futures.

—Terri Guillemets

I always keep my weather eye on the opposition of my seventh house Moon to my first house Mars.

—Theodore Roosevelt

The celestial bodies are the cause of all that takes place in the sublunar world.

—Thomas Aquinas

The question of all questions for humanity, the problem which lies behind all others and is more interesting than any of them, is that of the determination of man's place in nature and his relation to the cosmos.

—Thomas Huxley

I submit that the traditional definition of psychiatry, which is still vogue, places it alongside such things as alchemy and astrology, and commits it to the category of pseudo-science.

—Thomas Szasz

If you believe in astrology, I'm a Virgo, so I'm very controlling; I'm very neat, and I'm very organized.

—Trisha Yearwood

My father believed in astrology. His astrologer had predicted that his daughter would become a writer someday. My father would nag me, but I didn't write a word till he passed away. I wish he could see me now.

—Twinkle Khanna

Astrology rests on proofs which cannot be invalidated; an impartial survey of the history of mankind from the earliest traditionary records to the present day, in relation to the influences of astrology, must impress this truth deeply on the mind of every observer; the birthplace of Jesus of Nazareth was pointed out by the star, which led the shepherds of Judea to the spot where the young child was.


Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it. Geophysical evidence reveals the power of the stars and the planets in relation to the terrestrial. In turn, astrology reinforces this power to some extent. This is why astrology is like a life-giving elixir to mankind.


Oracular ambiguity or statistical probability provides loopholes, and discrepancies are expunged by Faith.

—Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness

There is no better boat than a horoscope to help a man cross over the sea of life.

—Varaha Mihira

Astrology is interesting but not very accurate. It's a science I don't trust very much.

—Varg Vikernes

He who asks fortune-tellers the future unwittingly forfeits an inner intimation of coming events that is a thousand times more exact than anything they may say. He is impelled by inertia, rather than curiosity, and nothing is more unlike the submissive apathy with which he hears his fate revealed than the alert dexterity with which the man of courage lays hands on the future.


I have used astrology to send positive messages: 'You can do it, even if you fall, get back up again.'

—Walter Mercado

Do not Christians and Heathens, Jews and Gentiles, poets and philosophers, unite in allowing the starry influences?

—Walter Scott

The fellow that can only see a week ahead is always the popular fellow, for he is looking with the crowd. But the one that can see years ahead, he has a telescope but he can't make anybody believe that he has it.


The death of God represents not only the realization that gods have never existed, but the contention that such a belief is no longer even irrationally possible: that neither reason nor the taste and temper of the times condones it. The belief lingers on, of course, but it does so like astrology or a faith in a flat earth.

—William H. Gass

I find my zenith doth depend upon. A most auspicious star, whose influence. If now I court not, but omit, my fortunes. Will ever after droop.

—William Shakespeare

It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves; we are underlings.

—William Shakespeare

There's some ill planet reigns: I must be patient till the heavens look With an aspect more favourable.

—William Shakespeare

Our jovial star reigned at his birth.

—William Shakespeare

This is the excellent foppery of the world, that when we are sick in fortune (often the surfeits of our own behaviour) we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and stars: as if we were villains on necessity; fools by heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves, and treacherous by spherical predominance; drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence; and all that we are evil in, by a divine thrusting on. An admirable evasion of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish disposition on the charge of a star!

—William Shakespeare

O! I am Fortune's fool.

—William Shakespeare

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.

—William Shakespeare

Astrology is like gravity. You don’t have to believe in it for it to be working in your life.
