There's always enough stuff that is 'true' - or the person at least feels it is. (I always considered myself a sensitive, caring person until I got married and discovered just what an insensitive fuck I can be). Because of that, people gloss over the bits that are blatantly wrong.

So I nod appreciatively when the online astrology report calls me a caring, appreciative lover, and giggle and ignore the bits that praise my organisation skills.

And that's the crux of it. Astrology, palmistry, aura reading, tarot, etc, are FUN. They aren't valid predictive sciences - hell, anyone familiar with science knows that the phrase 'predictive science' is dodgy anyway. But they're good entertainment.
