"... In the end, Boxer, like me, doesn’t think there is any reason to believe in astrology—but we are both Tauruses, so what can you expect?"
Love it! :-D
I've always thought that astrology was more a product of the seasons experienced by the fetus in the womb, than anything off-world affecting your daily life.
In winter, women are less active, more bundled up, more inside the home. Spring, Summer, and Fall all have similar patterns. It seems to me that, as the fetus develops, this is going to affect the environment, the chemistry, and the activity of the mother, which will impact the fetus as it develops.
But yeah... I'm a Libra, so I always try to find a middle ground where everyone is happy. :-)
