More than ever, astrology is becoming an issue in Irish politics.
An independent inquiry has found that there are more than 500 astrological signs and the signs used to describe the seasons have been replaced by new ones.
It has also said that a political party that used astrolographs was breaching the Electoral Act.
This was after a complaint from the Irish Astrologer’s Association.
The Irish Astrological Association has called for an investigation into what it described as a political ploy to discredit the association by falsely portraying its members as people who are not qualified to represent their interests.
What are astrology signs?
There are five main types of signs: – “Astrologist” – a person who is an astrologer.
– “Ophiuchus” – one of the three elements of the Greek god of the moon.
– Venus – a planet with a green colour.
– Saturn – the god of agriculture.
– Uranus – a fiery star with a yellow-green tint.
– Jupiter – the planet of love.
– The planet of wrath.
– Andromeda – the biggest planet in the sky.
Who uses astrology?
In the past, the Irish government has tried to restrict astrology in politics, but this has been challenged by an independent commission that has found there are too many signs.
The independent commission, appointed by the Irish Government, is looking into whether there are enough signs for a political body to use them to elect candidates.
In addition to the Irish Astronomical Association, the commission includes members of the Astrology Research Council and the Irish Society of Astrologers.
The Astrology Association is an umbrella body representing the professional associations for the profession, including astrologers, astrologists, fortune tellers, and fortune tellors’ associations.
It also has chapters in many other countries including Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, and Spain.
The Society of Professional Astrologists (SPOA) has said there is no evidence that astrology or its signs have any influence on elections in Ireland.
It said that in its opinion the electoral commission’s decision is a matter for the electoral commissioner to consider.
The SPOA’s chief executive, John MacDonagh, said that it was important that the public should be able to decide who should be elected to public office.
“In a democracy, our democracy must be fair and open,” he said.
He said that there was a need for the public to be able “to get a good and unbiased assessment of the candidates’ credentials, qualifications, experience, and abilities”.
What can I do if I’m concerned about astrology being used to manipulate the Irish electorate?
If you or anyone you know is being targeted by astrologing groups or political parties, you can call for an independent investigation.
You can also contact the Electoral Commission on 0800 932 6891.
You might be surprised to find out that astrologiems are now used as currency.
