echoes : roland barthes (i)

"... even if the outcomes are pure mystification, even if any advice on behaviour is elusive, [astrology] remains a confirmation of the real world in the minds of its readers: it is in no sense a pathway to escapism, but a realistic portrayal of the living conditions of the (female) office or shop worker."

From the Astrology chapter, Mythologies by Roland Barthes
