Posted: Wed Feb 16, 2011 11:46 am    Post subject: Blog debates on astrology Reply with quote

The recent controversies on astrology in the UK media has led to quite a number of interesting blog debates, exploring the position of astrology from various angles. Some of these are sceptical, some support astrology, and some are fairly neutral and balanced - many are extremely well written and offer excellent and detailed food for thought.

So I thought I would include a list of some of the still-active blog debates that are worth reading and commenting on. (I have listed them in reverse date order). These are just the ones that I am aware of; please feel free to add details of any interesting discussions I have missed (or as they come to attention):
