tumblr astrology culture is kind of creepy, obsessive maybe, arrogant too. Some of you have astrology fever or smth and just pull up charts of ppl you just met, or charts of crushes that don’t even know who you are without their consent. Then you fabricate how you two would work in a relationship based off a synastry chart, or as I like to call it, an enhanced compatibility concept.
Let us not forget the whole “people who don’t know astrology are ~self unaware~” phrase. This is arrogance. This is indicating you think you’re more enlightened than another person. Not everyone needs astrology. There are people who are the epitome of a developing person open to growth, and they don’t even know their moon trines mars or some shit. Ironic too, considering the same people who say this phrase scurry through mediocre astrology sites, books and blogs desperately asking questions of validation “can you describe how I am? These are my placements, can I have your opinion about me?” oh yes, so aware of yourself..
Then there is the action of seeing people (and yourselves!!) through placements rather than the other way around.e.g. someone you know is an Aries and you have all these dramatic assumptions of that person, highlighting the dark archetype of Aries. You disregard that Aries is expressing through them, not them through it..the Aries in them does not shape them, they shape the archetype to mold into who they are. Then you go around like, “ugh they’re an…Aries 👀” (or whatever sign you hate on) or, “…with moon square mars 😲 ” like calm down lol they are people…human beings…you don’t know anything about them just by looking at their chart. In fact, you doing all of the above or saying stuff like this says more about you then it will ever say about them.
