As a new astrologer, it has been a long, challenging process of learning how to distinguish real astrology from the type of astrology that you've described in your article.

The paradigm shattering moment for me was learning that horoscopes are written for the rising sign. Then from there, realizing that every individual has all zodiac signs in their chart, they aren't their Sun sign.

Now it's hard to see "all Geminis are two-faced and all Scorpios are backstabbers" without feeling like the doomed protagonist of Plato's allegory of the cave.
