I think people who say astrology is general have no clue what aspects are, or what natal charts are for that matter. They think "Oh well this post says Taureans eat a ton and are fat but I'm a skinny Taurus", well bitch I'm a skinny ass Taurus too, but probably because I'm Capricorn dominant and have a 6th house Cap moon making me hella strict with food. It's like wow people need to learn astrology first. I mean damn Pluto and their 8th house ruler need to hit them hard to shut them up.
Yeah… You can either try your best to explain (and hope they listen) or just move on. Just know that people who don’t know astrology are probably not gonna understand it (and they may not like it)
It’s kinda like not liking a school subject because you struggle to understand it. It’s frustrating to not understand something, you know?
