Yet these same people that live by astrology will say religious beliefs are stupid.
What Man may Obtain from the Twelve Signs
In the Ram, the vegetables of the earth obtain new vigor, the trees sap, and females become better adapted to propagate the human species. In this sign the fecundity of all creatures is limited and regulated. It has Sunday for its peculiar time and end.
In the Bull, all transactions and enterprises are prospered and fostered, so that they may go forward according to the will of God, but to this end constant prayers are necessary, and particularly on Sunday.
In the Twins, the angels have power over bodily changes and travel from one place to another over the heavens and through the course of the stars -- have power over the motion of the waters in rivers and in the sea, cause love between brethren, friends, and neighbors, and give warning against dangers, persons and objects.
In the Crab, the angels rule over legacies and riches, over treasure and treasure-seekers -- are calculated by nature to confer power, the art of speaking, and to enlighten the mind in holy things, in like manner as did the apostles in their unceasing prayer to God at Pentecost.
In the Lion, the angels have power to move every living thing, to multiply their species, to watch, and in certain manners to judge. And through the gift of God they confer Physicam, Medicinam, and Alchymiam.
In the Virgin, the spirits have power to subvert kingdoms, to regulate all conditions, to discriminate between master and servant, to command evil spirits, to confer perpetual health, and give to man Musicum, Logi-cam and Ethicam.
In the Balance, the angels derive from God great power, inasmuch as the sun and moon stand under this sign. Their power controls the friend- ship and enmity of all creatures. They have power over danger, warfare, over quarrels and slander -- lead armies in all quarters of the earth, cause rain, and give to man Arithmeticam, Astronomiam, Geometriam.
In the Scorpion, the angels have power over suffering and terror, over which man makes against God, over over common privileges. They compel the conscience to obedience, and also force devils to keep their agreements with men, and vice versa. They govern the life and death of all creatures, have power over departed souls, and give to man Theologiam, Metaphysicam and Geomantiam.
In the Archer, they have power over the four elements, lead the people from one country to another, regulate the changes of the elements and the propagation of animals.
In the Goat, the angels give high worldly honors, worthiness, and virtue, such as Adam enjoyed in Paradise in his innocence. They also en- lighten the understanding and confer human reason.
In the Aquitarius, angels keep man in good health, and teach him what is injurious to him, make him contented, and teach him through the command of God the mysteries of heaven and nature.
In the fish, the angels compel the evil spirits to become subject to man, protect the pious, so that the great enemy cannot harm him. (The Sixth and Seventh Book of Moses, pg. 135-136)
Do you really think the forces of the cosmos, radiation, magnetic alignments, solar anomalies, etc, etc, have no affect whatsoever on humankind?
LOL, the moon sets the females menstrual cycle, and the sun determines whether you're introverted or extroverted ,depending on its cycle when you were born!!
