How Accurate is Astrology?
The discussion about whether astrology works or not has existed just as long as astrology itself. What if the answer isn't a "Yes" or a "No", but something in-between?
All male murderers share a specific "warrior gene" according to science. However, 33% of the male population share the same gene - without becoming murderers. Apparently the "warrior gene" only manifests itself as a "murderer gene", if the male in question has been abused or neglected during his childhood. In other words: It is the environment, which triggers the inheritance. It's not a choice between environment or inheritance.
Similarly, when an astrologer interprets a birth chart, he sees potential, which may have manifested itself into something concrete - but there is no guarantee. This explains how the following incident could happen:
"A recent Unsolved Mysteries aired a segment on astrology, in which an astrologer by the name of Carolyn Reynolds was asked to identify the horoscopes of four serial killers out of a total of 20 astrological charts given to her. Without knowing anything about the people or their charts, Reynolds was able to tell the viewers who the serial killers most likely were. These individuals included such infamous names as Jeffrey Dahmer, the Son of Sam, David “The Night Stalker” Ramirez, and Ed Kemper. All four of her predictions proved to be correct."
My own research indicates that astrology isn't perfect, but if the skilled astrologer is presented with a limited options like in the above example, he or she can be very precise. Like: "Who does this male ressemble the most: Albert Einstein or Arnold Scharzenegger?" Most astrologers will be able to answer this question correctly.
With a highly specialized category (like e.g. top athletes) my astrological tools can narrow down the most likely members of the category to 10% of the population (even though the category comprises less than 1% of the population); and with a less specialized group the number might be 60-70%. It does not sound like a lot, but in a client session, where other factors play a role, it is sufficient to make the client satisfied.
