...Astrology fails these tests in many... I believe that the idea that celestial bodies and their positions might influence at the time of birth is patently ridiculous – especially because they are relative to so many other things (the way the earth is rotating, where the earth is on its path around the sun, etcetera). The time of year someone is born might, however, have some limited impact on how they develop and personality traits they have. It could be that babies are very sensitive to certain types of things happening to them, and their surroundings at different at very young ages could have an impact on how they develop. For instance, in much of the world winter months are much colder and have much ...
