There are many misconceptions about Astrology that have resulted in a widespread ambivalence, confusion, and outright dismissal of this celestial language. So Antero Alli, a professional astrologer and has authored books on experimental theatre, astrology and Timothy Leary's 8-circuit model of consciousness, recently ruminated on what he sees as the Top Five Misconceptions About Astrology.

Says Antero at his locally famous astrology blog:

"Many cliches, stereotypes, and bad rumors about Astrology have been created and maintained in newspapers, Television, films, books, academic and scientific circles, and multimedia sources seeding the collective mindset for many years with sour astrology memes. This has contributed to a smokescreen of delusion and misunderstanding when it comes to understanding Astrology as a viable tool for Self-knowledge and communication."
