There is a popular interest in astrology because of the superstition associated with it. But that is not its only attraction. Jung has pointed out that astrology is a discipline for developing intuition. This is the primary reason serious people seriously practice it. Astrology is useless as an intellectual model describing correlations between stellar positions and personalities. That however is irrelevant. Serious successful practitioners do not use astrology as an intellectual model. They use it as a backdrop and aid to their intuition. Used it that way it works for them. If Western culture had done more to develop intuition there would be no need to revert to ancient methods that are still immersed in superstition.
