 Caput draconis serves as your guiding light. Pay attention and it'll get you back on track after losing your way. Whatever it portends, for good or ill, that's what you need to do and be and make.

 The dragon's tail—Cauda draconis—is 180° away. That'll guide you too, back to what's familiar and feels safe, away from what you were born to do (be, make).

 Neither is directly visible as an object in space; they are directions like north and south (respectively). But you can see them in every eclipse, in which the dragon's head and tail are no less involved than the sun and moon.

 Those who know don't say, those who say don't know! I'm one of the latter, so it's the seventh. I don't believe in houses much, but in general that region where the sun sets is about others.

 Some object that astrology generally relies on a pre-Copernican view of the heavens, from earth's p.o.v. But as Einstein showed, everything is relative, and any view is valid as far as it goes, and serves its own (limited) purposes well enough. Few astrol

 All the accumulated rubbish that skeptics complain about is a result of varying interpretations. Other than "houses" (which are notoriously hard to locate and give rise to most of the nonsense), a chart is rock-solid realism.

 Yet this assumption is as deeply embedded in our civilization as the ancient beliefs in wood-nymphs, demons, and magic ever were. Is it any wonder this planet is regardless and dead, meaningless and useful only as a warehouse and a rubbish dump?
