It sounds to me like you are doubting the legitimacy of Astrology, and I would have to challenge you on that. It was actually my earlier interest in the MBTI which transformed into an interest in the Enneagram of Personality, which then became an interest in Natal Astrology which led to to draw and study my chart.
alot of people these days don't like to beleive anything unless it's being spoon-fed to them by a government-approved egghead in a white-coat. Or an e-celeb. (lol.)
Beyond this I know this Astrology has a bad reputation due to it's association with succubi that use it in that vapid, superficial way that centers around sex, love and relationships and takes only the sign-position of the Sun into account.
If you are willing and cognizant to sift through the cheap fluffy material on the subject, you can learn a lot of cool, inspiring and perhaps valuable information by studying Astrology and your natal chart. In the previous couple years I have spent a considerable amount of time studying my planetary positions and aspects, and have not only seen how my chart accurately explains my personality, but witnessed
the effects of planetary transits in the form of major and minor events in my life. I can vouch for it's legitimacy. While the majority of the fun of astrology does come from the navel-gazing and often false sense of inspiration or grandeur, it's not all junk and can be used quite practically from a sober viewpoint if you so wish. It's perhaps the most effective psychological science there is; as above and so below.
Maybe it's just not for everybody. For anyone who is interested I'll post some links off the top of my head to the actually good astrology sites I have come across:Drawing a Natal Charthttps://www.astrotheme.com/horoscope_chart_sign_ascendant.php
