I watched the episode “Reincarnation and Astrology,” over an 1.5 hour that I can never get back. The interviewer/host asked the most boring, non-relevant questions. I don’t care how many big words he knows or how many philosophical frameworks he’s familiar with, but that’s all he talked about! Not to mention the name dropping! I listened to the whole thing even though my eyes glazed over, but I barely got any concrete tips on how to look at a birth chart and get insight into past lives. The host’s monotone voice and lack of sense of humor doesn’t help at all either. The guest was much more entertaining (and actually made a few jokes, gasp!, but the host didn’t laugh at them). This attitude of “I’m better than you because I can say big words and make astrological concepts sound complicated” is what I hope we all start to steer away from, making astrology more accessible and helpful to the average person.
