Thanks, unique_astrology and dubbhism, for your thoughtful posts.

On that now 82-page thread at Astrodienst on this topic, I argued mid-way through the discussion, that I don't think statistics are ...

dubbhism, I just prepared a carefully crafted response to your post, only to accidentally delete it. Right now I don't have the patience to recreate it, except to say that, no.

Maybe I should give Lilly another try, but I ...

I sometimes play around with asteroids. Sometimes the "hits" are uncanny, as when two people have namesake asteroids that hit one another's planets in synastry.

Although I think you ca ...

Thanks, Tanit-- good analysis. Astrodienst is open to all persuasions of astrology, but it tends to be dominated by practitioners of modern astrology, who are not so into the "lesser" essen ...
