Well, not exactly, but here's B's astrological chart as published in the A&P Review in 1966.
What would be interesting is to give it to three or four of them and see how they differ. The similarities would all be generalizations.
An "astrologer" could get anything they wanted to get out of it. Whatever it took to make you feel good. That's what they do.
I can replicate the "accuracy" of any astrological "reading" without even looking at a fancy chart or knowing when you were born. Anyone can. It's a con game, you see.
Oh yeah, that would be VERY interesting!What would be interesting is to give it to three or four of them and see how they differ.
a facsimile is in Howie's 'BiP', p.22 and says 10pm.Roni, have you ever tried to dig up a birth record?
Yes, it sounds a bit too exact not mentioning minutes, but it's good enough to make a horoscope out of. Most horoscopes are made knowing only the hour, because people don't remember, or have been told, the exact minute of their birth. So, August 16 at 10 PM will do nicely...Sounds a bit too exact a full hour to me

Not.Based upon a likely 10 PM birth time [assorted hippie bullshit] point to his artistic genius as a poet and novelist, gambler and alcoholic, believe it or not.
Okay, it's real and it's not, check. ;) Come on, man. You're pissing all over science and reason.It is certainly likely that astrology is completely bunk. But it's possible it isn't...
Based upon a likely 10 PM birth time, there are numerous other patterns in Buk's birth chart, according to the principles of interpretation in astrology, that point to his artistic genius as a poet and novelist, gambler and alcoholic, believe it or not.
To believe that the arrangement of certain planets (oh, I'm sorry, only the ones nearby, in our solar system...you know 25 million to 3 billion miles away) at the time of your birth affects your life in the least is the most profoundly idiotic thing I think mankind has ever come up with.
When it comes to using the position of the stars to reveal ANYTHING other than your fixed position on earth, I believe Mr. Zappa said it best with these liner notes :
I want this Jesus-figure!
... I thought about buying it for a born-again fundamentalist Christian ...
And dammit, they didn't include some water! May be this would turn into wine! Lots of wine!
don't waste it on This kinda people!
There's no future in them.
Buy it for meee!

I'll make this easy to resolve: explain the science that supports astrology.
Here's where astrology generally fails. But can I really be sure?
