Astrology has no strong scientific or logical basis. The premise of astrology is that the planets influence us here on earth. Science has proven the moon influences us, but the effect is a subtle one. If the moon, close to us, has only a minor effect, how could a planet like pluto influence us?
Having said that, I recommend you to try astrology. Discover for yourself, illogical or not, it works! Get your natal chart done, keep up with transits and progressions.
(1) The religious person, who is afraid of the occult and it's power, wants to play it safe with a nice little god.
(2) The scientific person, proud of their thought processes. In their logical and scientific mind, they feel that astrology is beneath them, a lowbrow entertainment of the masses.
(3) The person who has dabbled a little in astrology and claims, "But it doesn't work, all Leos are not alike!" Duh, people who only delve into sun sign astrology are missing the whole point. Comments like "Does a Pisces get along with a Taurus?" are a good clue to that mode of thinking. I feel like #2 above about those type of folks ;) They are using astrology as entertainment when it can be so much more. Use it! It will be to your own self-knowledge and growth, and beats chanting affirmations all to heck.
