New astrology or old tricks?

You know its the same old same old in the academic circles.  Publish or perish.  Its much the same on the internet.  But to publish some schlock just to get attention really is inappropriate.  Many of the principals behind new astrology just don’t add up.  I think Anthony really summed it up beautifully so I will defer to his analysis since he is a better astrologer than I.  And I don’t think I could express it any better: 

Anthony Charles Capoccia said on 15 Saturday 2011 pm31 2:10 pm:
It is inappropriate for “professors” to start hoaxes that proliferate historical inaccuracies in order to attack people’s religious views (star worshipers, sometimes called Sabaeans, as the Harranian Sabaeans were a prominent group of them, Zoroastrians were another, were one of the first religions, and besides starting scientific observation as we know it, were also one of the “people of the book” afforded religious protection in many holy books including the Quran). The critical points: 1. This is not news – The stars didn’t suddenly re-align. Ophiucus has been on the ecliptic for a very long time. Thanks for misleading the public hufpost. 2. It is Inaccurate – The Zodiacs and Constellations are two different things. Both the Tropical and the Sidereal Zodiacs are coordinate systems for locating objects in observational ecliptic longitude, and which were divided into 12 signs of exactly 30 degrees each based on the significance of the number 12 to ancient cultures. There have never been any constellations of exactly 30 degrees in length. The Tropical Zodiac starts at the well-defined point of alignment between the celestial equator and ecliptic known as the Vernal Point, while the Sidereal uses a reference star, typically Spica to mark the start of Libra. Neither have signs that ARE constellations. 3. It is disingenuous – This is a hoax. Let’s promote knowledge of history instead of ignorance and confusion about it. Modern astrology bears no relation to ancient astrology which is foundational to both science and religion
