The Enneagram is Astrology!
by E. Alan Meece The Enneagram is a system of nine psychological types. The word enneagram is based on the Greek word for nine. It has become useful and popular because people can recognize their behavior and personality in the description of an Enneagram type, or perhaps in two or three of them. The goal of working with the Enneagram is to know the strengths and weaknesses of your personality. People use astrology in very much the same way. The most interesting question I've had about the Enneagram, is not so much whether it works, or whether it's true; if it weren't true and useful, it probably would not be so persistently popular. Ironically, of course, people ask the same question about astrology (what is it based on?). My explanation is quite simple; the nine types of the Enneagram are really astrological types. All the various philosophical, psychological, esoteric, and scientific systems of human knowledge have things in common, and things that are different. Type One is Mercury
