Astromagick Pro - 67 Horoscope Signs vs Faux Zodiacs By Klaudio Zic

The brief enlists but the main issues ditto issuing from miscalculation due to superstition or simplified pseudo-zodiacal models still in wide use across the planet, bot east and west, north and alas... More > south. The most damaged and debilitated horoscopes of course pertain to the southern hemisphere which is alas treated as northern (sic). As the northern one is already afflicted by overwhelming zodiacal offsets, there is no hope for the southern to come even near to a rudimentary horoscope; e.g. if Europe normally overlooks seven (7) signs of zodiacal offset, then South America suffers from complete disaster when it comes to natal skies. This in turn affects the minds of people, twisting them in random directions – all wrong. If by any chance such a foul astrology is taken in bona fide as religion, damage to the nation is guaranteed: not that the northern cousins don’t have their own 9-11: the south is even more afflicted by asinine prepositions as fostered by astronomy haters.< Less
