Still doesn't have any bearing on whether the prospect of next week is good, bad or indifferent.
It does if they're right when they say "You make your own luck" doesn't it? Quantify, if you will, the effect of a sunny disposition on the fortunes of tomorrow. Are you good in the morning or good at night? In which season do you feel most at home?

Ah, a democrat. Irrational bastard.
I'm no astrology apologist really, I can barely even say it right now, I'm just arguing the toss. It's too easy, as a dumb monkey let's face it, to dismiss things as absolutely rubbish and then find they're partially true. When you dig up potatos right after a new or full moon, they don't sprout in the bag for weeks compared to potatos dug up at other lunar moments. That's a prediction based on experience, blamed on wheels within mystic wheels, and anyway it turns out to be pretty damn proveably true whatever the mechanism might happen to turn out to be. If you don't have the imagination to read on from there, then you're probably a Taurus.
Plus it's really funny watching Patrick Moore, the dear old nimby fascist, spluttering when someone comes at him with astrology. "You - you - apassingbushasmoregravitationaleffectonyouthanJupiter." Well (a) who mentioned gravity? (b) that doesn't make Jupiter's effect zero now does it, and (c) anything affecting you when you're a single cell in the middle of dividing might possibly have a greater, more all-pervading effect than anything affecting you later on, no? Cold, warm and hot dark matter and the missing mass of the universe all sound pretty silly too, to me.
Well, who needs a one-way argument. Cardiacs are crap by the way.
