A(nother) Pet Peeve

People taking Zodiacs (plural?) and Horoscopes and planetary alignment way too seriously, connecting it to their personality and their relationships and the success of their financial endeavors and whatnot.

Just.

NO.

I highly doubt that luminous spheres of plasma and giant space rocks have any bearing on who you are or how your life goes.

    They aren't bugging you about it, and it's not hurting anyone, so I don't see why you're paying any attention to it. Some people feel as if they resonate with their signs, so you don't have to criticize their lives. Plenty of people are religious, and they get respect. Isn't this no different from believing in a god?

    you sound like Hermione (I don't mean that in a bad way though), guess you wouldn't like Professor Trelawney either plus yeah zodiacs aren't that accurate in my opinion I mean "Aries are confident and make great leaders" but I'm actually more of a follower and I lack confidence to do even simple things like walk across a room why are people staring at me am I walking weird it just makes me really uncomfortable

    Well, believe it or not, even a calculating guy like me that likes maths and hates philosophy thinks that zodiacs are sometimes true. I mean, I am a Taurus, and I can see personality traits of a Taurus in me. This also applies to my Pisces father and Leo mother to some extent.

    Yet, I think that the only reason this happens is because of plain statistics and the fact that all star signs tend to show off at least one of EVERY person's inate traits. What I actually mean is that they are almost always true, because they are made in such a way that EVERY person can be afiiliated with every star sign in some way!

    Consequently, I will never base my life on them or their predictions, just admitting that their nature makes them accurate.

    You're right, they're not. But like I said, it was a pet peeve. The definition of a pet peeve:

    Exactly. I have identified it as a minor annoyance that may actually be perfectly acceptable to other people. Aren't people allowed to have minor annoyances? And if they happen to form an opinion, as people are wont to do, should they hide it away and speak not a word because they shouldn't even have paid attention in the first place?

    Some people feel as if they resonate with their signs, so you don't have to criticize their lives. Plenty of people are religious, and they get respect. Isn't this no different from believing in a god?
    'Criticizing their lives' is a bit of a stretch. Let's go back to the definition of a 'pet peeve': a minor annoyance. Why should I judge a person's life based merely on a minor annoyance?

    I am only disagreeing with one thing they do, not the person as a whole. If someone were to comment that they did believe that Zodiac signs have a legitimate impact on their lives, my respect for them would remain intact, though I still do disagree. Disagreeing is not equal to disrespecting.
