    Let's get philosophical.  What is reality? In 2020 most of us agree the material is reality.  The car is real.  The house is real, and so on. Astrology is not material. But there are lots of material and quasi-material things that are real.  Thinking is real. Music is real. 

    I realize that the vast majority of YA users are teenagers with too much time on their hands, and like teenagers of every generation, they have their own language. So when they say "real," it doesn't have to mean what adults think it means. In fact the very vagueness is the point.  Silly minds can't be wrong if the word is sufficiently vague. 

    Astrology exists.  Therefore astrology is real. The proper question is this: does astrology work?  At least from that minimal framework we have a beginning point that can be discussed.

    The most famous and best English language astrologer ever, from a practical point of view, was England's William Lilly (1602-1681).  He wrote an astrology text with the curious Title "Christian Astrology."  It is a masterpiece.  Christ isn't mentioned once, but God is. While teaching astrology in the text, Lilly pointed out, indirectly, that the nature of reality is not simply material or detectable with the five senses. The ultimate reality is God. The purpose of life is to get closer to God. The material is temporary - always.  Temporary will not get us to God. Astrology is one way to make the trip as astrology reveals God's plan (St. Thomas Aquinas approved of mundane astrology for that purpose). In fact Lilly pretty much summed up this line of thought in one sentence: "The closer to God thou art, the purer thy judgment shall be." Or if you want to understand reality, get close to God. 

    So yes, astrology is very real, whether it works or not.  In order to practice it properly, it is necessary to get in touch with God, the ultimate reality. It has nothing to do with Libra being compatible with Gemini.

    Real?  In the sense that lots of people believe in it and it's ability to foretell the future and omens...yes.  In the sense that it has any scientific basis for such beliefs...no.

    It's all about personal opinion.  Just like religion and spirituality.  Or politics.
