How does Astrology work?

Nobody knows how or why Astrology works, if they say they do then they are simply expressing their personal opinion. There are a couple of things we can definitely say for certain, though...

Astrology is NOT working by the gravitation effect of the planets on us. We know this because a lorry exerts more gravitational effect on us than Pluto for example!

Astrology is NOT working by visual observation. We know this because Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all having an effect on us and they cannot be seen with the naked eye.

However Astrology does work! And therein lies the mystery.

My personal opinion is that the Universe we see through our eyes and sense through our senses is in some way a reflection of us. And the planets are a part of that reflection. We are conscious. We experience events, things as being outside us, but at the end of the day everything is in our mind. We can't be sure for certain that anything really exists. This, everything may simply be a dream in our mind that we are living in. Maybe its a shared dream. Things seem solid, there are rules like gravity, hot & cold, but this could simply be part of the shared dream. WHO KNOWS! But, and I will keep coming back to it, I KNOW astrology works, from experience, I don't know why, but I am sure is trying to tell us all something very fundamental about the nature of our universe, existence and consciousness, if we can be open enough to see it.
