Select your favorite quote about astrology...

This site: gathered a lot of quotes about astrology. They are food for thought on a lazy day. What is your favorite quote?

1. By Arthur C. Clarke (born December 16, 1917 with Jupiter 105 Uranus, Sagittarian Sun quatrinovile Jupiter and sextile Uranus*):
I don't believe in astrology; I'm a Sagittarius and we're skeptical.

(!I am a Sagittarius, too! :) Arthur C.Clarke was a science fiction writer and inventor.

2. By Ralph Waldo Emerson:
Men should take their knowledge from the Sun, the Moon and the Stars.
I never heard of Ralph Waldo Emerson before yesterday when his name was mentioned in a serie on television (shame on me:) and now I noticed his name again. Time to pay some attention to this chart (see below)!

Ralph Waldo Emerson was an essayist, philosopher and poet and later a transcendentalist (a believer in indiviual spiritual growth). Here below is his chart for the moment when he started travelling (to Europe) after the death of his ' mate' (she died very young). More about his life on Astrodatabank...
BTW, watch Varuna on his Ascendant and see the link to the recommended study about this object in the left upper corner or use the tab ' Recommended sites, books and studies'. And notice that Mercury in Gemini is the final dispositor of Midheaven, indicating the importance of communications and ideas in his professional life.

3. By John Kenneth Galbraith:
The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable.

I like this one now that we are in the middle of an economic and financial crisis that has not been 'predicted' or 'forecasted'. John Kenneth Galbraith was born October 15, 1908 with Venus quintile Pluto (for being creative in matters of money) and Mercury was exactly sextile Uranus and sesquisemisquare (67.5d) Jupiter*).

*)For more about the combination of Jupiter and Uranus in the charts of astrologers, astronauts, popes and all those who experience, use or need a helicopter view, see the post about Jupiter-Uranus (use the label or this link).
