How come Zodiac signs are so accurate?
I was told they were all bullshit but i read about cancerians which i happen to be and like 95% was me! Wtf how does one know so much info just by when your born?
I converted to zodiac signs now.
Anyhow my question to yahoo is how is it possible they are so accurate? It doesnt make sense to me but its remarkably true.

well then don’t listen to others its your believes.

For just a moment, let’s say that there is some force from the planets that can affect us here on Earth. What could it be?
Our choices are limited. Planets are big balls of ice, rock, metal, and other stuff. Their ability to affect us is weak because they are pretty far away. As far as we can tell in science, there are only four fundamental forces: gravity, electromagnetism, and two forces called the strong and weak force. Those last two only work (more or less) on the nuclei of atoms and subatomic particles. It’s hard to see how they could affect us on a macroscopic scale (the strong force weakens so rapidly with distance that it’s essentially gone by the time you’re a few billionths of a meter from the source!).
So we’re stuck with either gravity or electromagnetism. Let’s look briefly at both.
We know quite a bit about how gravity works on large scales, scales like that of the solar system. Basically, the gravity of an object depends on two things: how much mass it has, and how far away it is. The more massive an object, the stronger its gravity. The closer it is, the more its gravity affects you.
That’s all well and good, but we really need to put in numbers to analyze it. Why? Because, for example, Jupiter has about 25,000 times the mass of the Moon. That’s a lot! But it’s also about 1500 times farther away than the Moon at its closest. Which number wins in the game of gravity?
In this case, it’s distance, by a long shot. I won’t go into details here, because I already wrote up a page about gravity and the planets. But the bottom line is that at best, the gravity from the planets in our solar system is a tiny fraction of the Moon’s. So if gravity were the force behind astrology, then the Moon would dominate all the planets combined. Yet it doesn’t in any astrologer’s horoscope.
So it’s not gravity. Could it be electromagnetism?
Gravity depends on mass and distance. Electromagnetism (or just EM) depends on electric charge and distance. The problem here is that most large objects don’t have an electric charge! Electric charges come from charged particles like electrons and protons. But opposite charges attract each other so well that it’s very rare to find one without the other nearby, which means that a planet is electrically neutral overall.
Some planets, for other reasons, do have magnetic fields. But these fields are only strong near their home planet. Jupiter’s field is immense, but Jupiter is so far away it has no real effect on us. Furthermore, the Sun is far and away the largest EM source in the solar system. Its magnetic field directly affects us; when there is a gigantic flare, or other explosions on the surface of the Sun, vast streams of charged particles are sent sleeting out. So if anything, the Sun should be the only source of astrological effects. However, astrologers tend to ignore it or still give the planets the lion’s share of the astrological effect on us. Either way, the planets’ combined force is miniscule compared to the Sun’s. If EM is the force behind astrology, the planets could be safely ignored.
If gravity were the driving force of astrology, the Moon would dominate, but it doesn’t. If EM were the driving force, the Sun would dominate, but it doesn’t. We’ve run out of forces!

Answer by Dzhastin
They’re true to you because you want them to be. They’re written so generically that any horoscope can be read by any person and they’ll find things that fit them. You don’t pay attention to the things that don’t fit you because that’s not exciting, but you notice the things that do fit because it’s exciting. It’s a common human fallacy so don’t feel too bad.

the stars are in the sky to tell us how to live our lives, they are our little guide to the universe and can tell us about the past, present, and advise us about the future!
that is why the stars are in the sky, haven’t you ever wondered?

How do I get to the horoscope category on yahoo answers?
Basically I have a zodiac question and keeps making me do a science category. I tried changing it manualy but no horoscope category there. Plz help
Answer by Stephen
The horoscope category is in entertaintment and music.
butt ya sometimes gets fixated on a category and ignores any attempt to change it.
in that case the options i have found ar either to post to the wrong category, or not at all.
