The newspaper horoscope is not «astrology»

SAGITTARIUS

«That which is delivered vulgarized to the masses deserves any name but astrology.» Dr. Weiss (1888-1956)

David Bustamante S. (M.A.)

How many people “are” Aries or Virgo or have brown eyes? Would we describe them all the same? When we are asked about our Zodiac sign, we are asked about the position of only the Sun during the epoch of birth (not even the day, much less the time or place). The Sun sign constitutes a minuscule part of our astrological birth chart (astrography), for in it we assess ten heavenly bodies, twelve signs (not constellations), twelve regions, and five angular relationships, which, so far, represents more than 7,200 possible combinations. Only in this way could the discipline appear as a factual science, as the same chart is not repeated in tens of thousands of years, nor is one and the same genetic sequence.

DAVID BUSTAMANTE SEGOVIA, better known as SAGITTARIUS, is a Hispanic-American translator, professor, and astrologer, author of Commentary on astrology according to epigenetics (DOI 10.5281/zenodo.8210413). He currently contributes to Revista Stellium, The Mountain Astrologer, and has contributed to Revista Universo (Venezuela), GeA (Buenos Aires), and Carta Natal (Spain). He is also the author of an essay, Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences according to Astrology, published in GeA in December of 2019 (No. 74). Bustamante loves science and medicine as much as philosophy and letters and considers astrology a non-exact scientific discipline (resembling medicine, meteorology, or forensic psychology) that contemporary Western society has wrongfully reduced to the Sun sign. Bustamante writes against ignorance and superstition and in favor of scientific knowledge, conscience, and reason.

He holds a degree in Psychology from the University of the Sacred Heart (Puerto Rico) where he took courses in Law and Genetics, and a Masters in Journalism from Universidad del Rosario (Colombia). He also has conducted studies in Universidad Externado, where he taught Writing and Journalism Genres. He is an associate member of the American Translators Association (ATA), a certified English teacher (Cambridge), and holds a diploma in Legal English (Washington D.C.).

Juan Estadella

Spanish researcher and astrologer

Barcelona, Spain

“Bustamante’s research follows this path, undertaken in the last century by a few astrological scholars. We urgently need research with a similar profile. […] In the face of a publishing production full of manuals with useless astrological recipes that hardly contribute anything to this knowledge, the present study successfully distances itself from this uniform and gray bibliographical reality. […] Bustamante’s work constitutes a valuable contribution to our collective, another golden stone in the construction of the astrological pyramid. It is to be hoped that it will receive the welcome it deserves and that its author will continue to offer this discipline his efforts and research talent, for the good of astrology itself”.

“Bustamante’s work is characterized by an in-depth analytical production that cannot be found in any other work of the present nor of the past (excepting, perhaps, Morin) and that evokes the spirit of science. It shows, moreover, the commitment of its author to the craft, which automatically implies combating its distortion and dishonest profit.”

“David never quenches his thirst and is always ready to debate, providing his opinion with criteria and intelligence. He is a skeptic who investigates everything and questions even his own ideas, someone who is clear that what he knows is a drop of water in the ocean, which is why he is able to continue to grow uninterruptedly, while contributing.”
