What aspects/placements would incline a person towards not believing astrology, or not caring to investigate astrology further?
I think earth placements might be too "practical."

Neh. I have a Taurus Sun friend, and a Capricorn Moon friend who I've both converted to astrology.

The only signs who don't seem to like astrology (provided it's not apart of their culture like Indian / Middle Eastern) is Virgo, Libra, or Sagittarius in my opinion. And Sagittarius interest was more "been there, done that" than dismissive. Point being it didn't hold their interest long enough to really consider it a "belief."

Agree. But I've found evolved Virgo to be more receptive.
Libra cannot stand to hear anything that puts them out of balance
Sag must find their own truth and they must find it on their own, but when astrology resonates with them, look out, they give great interpretations to others.

I find Sagittarius to be more into traditional religion, like going to church.

The Earth signs, especially Capricorn.

Virgo is the least likely of the Earth signs to be skeptical of it. Depending if they're the more open-minded Virgo, or scrutinizing Virgo

Taurus in between.

I'm referring to the sign archetypes, not Sun Signs.

Actually, Libra influenced people seem to be the most interested in Astrology than any other sign in my observations at least.

I don't think I met a Libra Mercury who said "Astrology is bs."

They may not be all that interested, but they never said it was fake or bs.

Oh,please! I'm Libra.

It has to do with aspects, not signs! For example, people who have Neptune, Uranus, Pluto aspecting their personal planets, will have far more stretched mind thus more able to accept and be interested in astrology.

I would disagree with the view about earth signs...sorry:/ IMO the sign that most likely dont "belive" in astrology is Aries because they just don't care. One Sag Sun, that i know, thinks astrology is pagan.

Yes, lack of outer planet aspects would fit.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, so no need to be sorry

Earth signs or people with strong influence in Earth are non believers.

those signs who have better things to do than stalking star positions all day?

Hint: fire signs.


What's up with all this lame stuff about Sagittarius beliefs, their own religion or something? Every single saggitarius I know doesn't even know that stuff like Astrology exists lmfao. And they don't think highly of church and other religious things

Yes! Leo doesn't mind astrology because he/she likes to read about himself/herself

i don't think Libras have logic. They just want to "believe" the good stuff. If something bad about them is being said, they get so unbalanced and feel the need to blame something else for the imbalance.

oh my gosh... if someone has told me this, i would have stopped converting all the libras around me (how they all turn to be so preachy about why I need a statistical table to indicate Astrology works)

@summerlite: sooooo truuuueee. I told one libra all his good qualities so he keeps asking me to interpret more. But I was like "well I am gonna run out the good aspects to say ..." Then they all get so perplexed about how to balance their destiny and such...


@all the people who talk about earth signs: I think if they don't have air placements, it's harder to convert them. The astrologer who worked for Hitler was a "practical" Taurus btw http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Ernst_Krafft

...I usually find that a prominent or well-aspected Uranus can indicate an interest in astrology, so maybe an absence of Uranian aspects (or just weak ones) could show the astrological skeptic.

Well he had his uranus exact conj. his north node... that would be a pretty compelling force towards astrology

But anyways, thanks guys for the responses! I'd agree with the lack of outer planet aspects causing it.

Too much Taurus or Saturn in my experience, or simply a basic fear of the unknown or that which cannot be controlled/validated.

Virgos have been pretty receptive in my experience. I don't want to generalise Sun signs too much though, basically if people are scared of change/what they don't understand then astrology is definitely a threat. ;-)

I don't know an astrological set of factors that necessarily inclines people that way. I understand the earth/practicality argument, but I am a full-on Taurus (Sun, Saturn, Mercury, Venus) with Moon in Capricorn, Asc in Virgo and I've accepted astrology for over 20 years. I'm also very spiritually inclined as well in spite of my practical outlook. However, I do have Uranus in the 1st house with lots of aspects to it, and Mercury / Venus / Mars (exactly trine Uranus) in the 9th.

You'll get all types who are not inclined to astrology or allowing for it, including Jupiter/Sag or other fire/air rationalists who have over-fed their intellects at the expense of intuition.
