If by "same zodiac sign", you're referring to the "sun sign" (in general, the sign that includes all persons born within a 30-day span), then two people having the same zodiac sign can indeed be very different, because even though they have the same "sun sign" (that is, both of them have their sun in, say, Taurus), they can have very different "moon signs" (one might have his moon in Leo; the other having her moon in Capricorn, e.g.), "ascendant signs", planetary aspects, planetary strengths, and so forth. Newspaper horoscopes are notorious for presuming that all people of the same sun sign have the same personality.Soap-Bubble wrote:it's enough to say that my parents are of the same zodiac sign and they're completely different from each other....

During the last webcast Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche mentioned, that if someone has a difficult year from astrological point of view, he can use lungtas to be able to overcome those difficulties. Somehow I can not understand how this is supposed to work. I mean, I put some prayer flags with auspicious symbols and good wishes on trees and assuming that I did this on appropriate day, I shall be able to overcome problems and otherwise not? Seems a little bit odd to me.
You know, the earth is a sphere and there is different constelation on different places on earth
