I hate repeating myself.  I don't use astrology for predictive purposes.  Again, if you wish to continue tag teaming me please read my posts.

I read your posts. You do seem to claim there's an effect that can be understood, which implies predictive power. Or do you mean you just look at what happened and pick an explanation that makes you feel better about it?

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

...snip...
Your statements about your model of the solar system leaves out a lot of details. So does the average person's understanding of what I consider real astrology.  As I have said, there are many charlatans, and I don't attempt to abuse it for predictive purposes.  I use astrology to better understand my current situation.  I believe that if the astrology I believe in were true, the world would look exactly as it does.  As far as I'm concerned, I'm merely looking at the current position of the heavenly bodies near me in space and filtering that through my initial impressions from my strongest early memory: birth.  By learning to feel the energies within your body, one can even learn to recognize their motions without looking up the chart.  However, personally I'm not that finely tuned yet and often turn to calculations to help me decipher the energies I'm being exposed to.

I suspect that's the whole point of emotions.  I surmise that most, if not all, "scientific laws" are just explanations that were agreed upon consensus because they make the vastest majority of people "feel good (or comfortable, placated, whatever emotional descriptor makes you... feel good... )

"wrong" or "incorrect" in this context really just means "abnormal" or "not the consensus paradigm".

There is an aspect of subjectivity to science. I would just say that scientific laws are widely perceived as "more plausible explanations than the alternatives".
