Smart people believe in Astrology. They believe in keeping their minds open to all possibilities within the universe. They accept it for what it is instead of trying to make it into something it’s not. Here are some of reasons ‘smart people’ believe.
It’s Not ‘Scientific’
Many critics of Astrology take umbrage with the fact that it’s not based in science. They claim that because there is no scientific evidence to back up astrological claims, the entire thing is a bunch of baloney. An article written by Sam Downing for nine.com explains, “Of course there’s no scientific basis for astrology! Astrology is an art, not a science. The idea of belief is part of the scientific community. Not everything that can be proven. Science is not exact. It can’t tell me why my dog has a tumour. By nature astrology is irrational, but that doesn’t make it invaluable or wrong.”
The above mentioned article goes on to say, “If people aren’t going to consider what’s beyond the rational, how are they going to find answers? If people are open to astrology, it can be very revelatory. If someone sits there with their arms folded and says “Prove it to me”, of course nothing is going to happen. For those who are willing to see, it provides a lens. You have to participate. If you don’t, you’re never going to see.”
Looking for More
Many people turn to Astrology because they fell a deep sense of emptiness around them. They’re desperate for guidance and meaning. Because of the need for something greater, many people stumble upon Astrology and find something that resonates with them. When something makes sense to us, it’s easy to adopt it into our everyday lives.
Humans are mostly logical thinkers. They need to find ways to help them understand and cope with their life experiences. Without these types of explanations, people turn to distractions and consumerism as an attempt to fill their voids. Knowing there are higher powers guiding you through this world can be a very comforting and grounding thought.
One of the biggest reasons smart people believe in Astrology is the simple fact that it leads them on a path of self-discovery. Whether you truly believe or not, there’s no denying that your zodiac can likely tell you a bit about yourself. This information generally leads to self-reflection. For example, if one of your zodiac attributes is a big personality, you can start to think about why this is true. Search your past in order to determine why you are the way that you are. Periods of self-reflection can be extremely beneficial and illuminating. Analyze your zodiac attributes- both good and bad. Digging deeper into your personality and beliefs can cause you to strengthen some and leave other, less desirable ones, behind.
Astrology isn’t for everyone. However, it’s important to keep your mind open to the possibilities of the universe.
