I noticed something.
Why do many modern people protest about biology, and insist biology doesn’t determine a lot of who we are, but no one protests astrological determinism? In fact many of them obsess over what the stars make them into. Insist “As an Aquarius, I am….” And it’s in every women’s magazine I have looked into.
It’s almost like one type of determinism* is evil, while another is totally fine. One is backwards and medieval, another is just tradition, I guess.
Maybe it’s because astrology rarely says anything bad about us?.. And when it describes a flaw, it makes it sound like an asset. Or maybe because astrology makes us feel special, even if 1/12th of the population have the exact same star sign, while biology makes us feel slightly unspecial, even if no one else has the same DNA.
Perhaps people really don’t mind some impersonal entity determining who they are and who they will be.
*Btw, biology is not deterministic, it’s probabilistic.
