SO i got this new guy at work who is pretty obsessed with astrology, normally I wouldn't really care but he keeps projecting his assumptions on me because of my birthdate which I find pretty annoying I mean, he can believe whatever he want but leave me out of it

Now telling people they're wrong is generally going to create a shit atmosphere and i think quite a few of my coworkers would like astrology to be a real thing, so I want to set some traps. What are some tricky, good questions i can ask him that show he is just connecting dots because he likes to see them connected?

>TL;DR What are some questions to ask astrologists to show they're full of shit!?

Don't try. Because of crank magnetism he's also gonna believe in loads of new age, quackery and maybe even some conspiracy theories.
But you can probably have a normal conversation if you just avoid these topics.

Ah well , I'm pretty much convinced of that now. Apperently he's a geobiologist too, he's a pretty chill dude otherwise and has a good taste in music.

The original calender's before the gregoian one we use now had 13 months in it.
Now we use a 12 month one with leap years.....but were still using the old 13 month astrology calendar.
That means every astrological prediction is for every month that passes is +1 month inaccurate the further you get away from what ever was year 0 in astrology.

It's all made up nonsense.

you and everyone in this thread are FAILING the OP.

No astrologist will care if you try proving that it’s all a sham because they live and feel and know proofs of it from experience and from the astrology subculture now making a huge come back online. What they need and what OP asked for is a question designed to have them arrive at the realization themselves.


Ask your coworker about birth charts, like if he can tell you his moon sign and not just his sun sign that casuals assume is their entire birth chart.

Fastest way to shut down an astrologist is with data. You can do it yourself.
Take a horoscope, any horoscope, and a small sampling of people (N ~ 50).
For the past or present predictions the horoscope makes - you'll end up waiting too long on the future predictions - ask the group "was the prediction correct or nah?"
Gather the data and what you will find with 100% certainty is that horoscopes have no greater predictive power than random chance would

Tell him you lied and your birthday is really a different date. It'll throw him off enough to at least leave you alone, or he'll start making silly hindsight-bias-assumptions about your "new" birthday. At which point, you can tell him you've been fucking with him the whole time and he's full of shit.
