I was born in Michigan So My Rising is LIBRA but how come if I was born in Europe I would have SAG rising?
Is it because of the different time zone or the way one is raised over there?
And if astrology is true….
how come so many people dont believe it?
In fact Yahoo Answers didn’t make an Astrology section
instead they called it Horoscopes and put it in the “entertainment” section…instead of a section that is to be taken seriously…
Answer by I Bleed For You
Because horoscopes are entertaining? Horoscopes probably will change since galaxies are drifting through space causing those constellations to be unconstellated. (That’s not a word.) In Science you can either be wrong or almost right. Because Science always changes and that includes everything outside of Earth.
And yes it’s because of the different time zone. You figured it out on your own! 😀 *claps*
Answer by ♇
Yeah, it’s because of the different time zones. That’s why place of birth is significant in constructing a birth chart.
There are many reasons why people don’t find it accurate or “believe” in it. I don’t find it as a belief system. One reason could be denial of self-acknowledgement. They don’t want to hear about themselves. A second reason could be the individual has been a victim of a faulty astrologer; an astrologer that doesn’t have sufficient knowledge in astrology to start interpreting things for people. A third reason could be because people today are very logical and rational and seek evidence for all types of things. It’s a scientific era, not like the Middle Ages when everyone is very religious and superstitious.
Horoscopes and astrology are probably the same I guess. I mean to people it is. Horoscopes are meant for entertainment, not to be taken seriously. I would say that’s right. An individual shouldn’t put all their faith into astrology. It’s not a perfect science/art even though it works most of the time. A person can get sucked into it and brainwashed if they put too much concentration in it.
Answer by Every Little Thing I Do Is Magic
if you born at 5 am in michigan, that’s the same as 10 am in England. that’s just time zones
Answer by Tom
It’s not time zones, it’s location. The time zones tell you what time it is at your location, but your rising sign is determined by what sign was on the Eastern horizon at the time of birth. In your case it was Libra, but Europe is a third of the way around the world. At that instant the sign Sagittarius was on the eastern horizon in Europe. Depending on where you would have been born in Europe there is a 5 – 6 hour time difference.
Picture a globe with a belt running around it at a 23 degree angle to the equator. That belt is the zodiac. Now if you face east from Berlin, Germany you see Sagittarius rising. But if you move around the globe towards Michigan and keep watching the zodiac, it appears to move backwards given the direction you are moving. When you get yourself to Michigan and pretending time stopped, you would be looking east but at Libra not Sagittarius. Walk around your house. The view in the front isn’t the same as the view in the back. The principle is the same.
Also truth isn’t established by a vote. The global warming hoaxers tried that one. If astrology is to be criticized in any meaningful manner it has to be done from the inside. You can’t criticize from ignorance, and if you don’t know why one sign is rising in one part of the world and another sign rises elsewhere at the same time, you’re a long, long way from understanding anything significant about astrology.

Yes It’s because of different time zones and place, Not how you’d be raised at that location.
Patunia never make a judgment about the value of anything based on what MOST people believe Remember there was a time MOST people believed the world was flat. .
BTW before there was astrology the study of the planets and their effects on people and earth events was called astronomy.
The horoscope section is used as entertainment because the average person doesn’t have the patience, desire or interest to really study the subject. Astrology was knowledge that was never intended for the masses to learn, only a chosen few. It is considered part of “occult or hidden knowledge. Astrologers don’t know all the answers but do know that its valid because of their study and observations.
In the past it was custom for many heads of state Kings etc to have court astrologers as consultants
here’s an interesting article about Joan Quigley who was an astrologer and consultant to President and Nancy Reagan in the 1980s

Libras are really genuine people, but on the downside they tend to be moody and critical. They have a compulsive need to analyze everything, largely due to the fact that although they appear to have everything in order, they are somewhat unbalanced. They think aloud and need to weigh a million different options before making a decision, and when they finally act, they will usually end up thinking that they made a mistake.
Libras are REALLY into aesthetics: they love anything that they perceive as beautiful.
They are often honest, and many people find themto be cruel or too forwad, but in the end, we realize what they say is the truth.
Some great Libra traits: Diplomaitic and urbane
Romantic and charming
Easygoing and sociable
Idealistic and peaceable
And on the less than perfect side, Libra is:
Indecisive and changeable
Gullible and easily infuenced
Flirtatious and self-indulgent
Libra’s best color is blue, their stone is the sapphire, and Libreans are rules by Venus.
