Although personal decisions do influence the characters at times, zodiac signs, astrology and fate do bring the “star-crossed lovers” together. Romeo and Juliet’s stars don’t line up, which causes their downfall. Fate brings them together and then tears them apart. Fate originates all of the conflicts in Romeo and Juliet, from when they met until they die. From the beginning, Romeo acts without thinking of the consequences. For example

    Although Pluto was discovered in 1930, limited information on the distant planet delayed a realistic understanding of its characteristics. Today Pluto remains the only planet that has not been visited by a spacecraft, yet an increasing amount of information is unfolding about this peculiar planet.

Why is Pluto no longer a planet? Mr. Yokley says, "They declared it not a planet because it's just a big frozen

    Does the specifity of a personal description affect the participants rating? Abstract The study reported is testing the Barnum effect and is also a partial replication of the Snyder (1974) study.

    Astrology is not just a subject; it's an activity. Consequently, you don't study it - you do it. Astrology is an activity based on the principle of Unus Mundus - the Universe as Unity. Everything - from atom to galaxy - is rooted in the same universal and all-pervasive reality. And this reality reveals itself in the purposeful, ordered and meaningful processes of nature, as well as in the deepest recesses of the human mind and spirit. 'As above - so below'.
