astrology as social engineering

5.1: psy/astrology as social engineering:
. astrology seems to present itself as
a study of how planet movements affect our fate;
what it could be instead is something like
the power of group prayer;
so, astrology isn't studied, it's designed .
. there is a hypnotic power from
people believing in it
and inducing that belief in the shared mind
that controls our emotions and whims .
