I'm looking for serious scientific thoughts such as ideas related to Seasonal Affective Disorder or how the Moon affects people physiologically.

Hi Cascoly. I know that SAD isn't related to astrology. I mentioned it in the question to help prime people to generate more appropriate ideas. That said, there could be a correspondence between disposition and the amount of sunlight a baby receives.
SAD is related to actual sunlight received, so it is a reality; the possible effects of planets and stars is so miniscule as to be non existent - the OBGYN who delivers a baby exerts a greater gravitational effect than the moon

htat's scientific gibberish -- those quantum effects you mention work only on the smallest levels imaginable - the 'constant communication ' stuff is just nonsense
Tell that to the quantum physicists at Cerne, you think you can separate the quantum world from the macro world? Go and get an education, stop talking gibberish yourself.
just silly -- no one at CERN would agree with what you said. you jump from that to the ridiculous "follows naturally' conclusion that all particles are talking to each other over time. astrology remains junk science, at best; fraud in many cases
Thanks, Fen! Quantum mechanics is a good direction for this. Have also learned some about vibrations & frequencies at the cellular level. Could this relate to the old "Harmony of the Spheres" idea?
2 very different things - the first is the moon working on an enormous physical object, the oceans, combined withearth's spin; the second is allegedly working on human bodies see: http://cascoly.hubpages.com/hub/Full-Moon-Myths-Un...
Astrologers do not make up anything, except their minds. Astrology is the PRIMAL science on which ALL science is based. It is based-on empirical observation - not imagination and wishful thinking. Science is blind.
then present some of this alleged astrological evidence! when double blind studies have been done, different astrologers can't even come to the same conclusion about what a particular horoscope, etc means -- it's all flimflam - ranging from the self
I posed this question originally because I'm unaware of any scientific studies. For example, has anyone actually looked for correlations (or the absence of them) between subjects' MMPI profiles and traits assigned to their birth signs?
check the back issues of Skeptical Inquirer and Skeptic magazine -- they've had anumber of survey reviews over the years summarizing the various experioments that have been done -- basic conclusion - astrology is bogus [to use the technical term]
