You're combing through the comments to reply, so I'll go ahead and offer a hand to your downed ego by saying that this is a very satisfactory piece. I disagree with your audience choice, so next time shop the horoscope stories around to other blogs. Better luck next time.
The drop in subscriptions will speak for themselves. I can only say that I know zero people who use astrology to make major decisions. You said it yourself - topics such as climate change are worth an exchange of ideas. Let's imagine GOOD had a "topics" filter. Maybe you'd find Economic Good, Environmental Good, Charitable Good, etc. Did I list astrology and horoscopes? Nope.
First, to quote another commenter: This post is really lame. Especially putting it in my inbox under the label "The Daily GOOD."
About Good, from the GOOD is _____. website:
"GOOD is a global community of, by, and for pragmatic idealists working towards individual and collective progress.
Good.is is the platform for collaboration amongst members of the GOOD community and the organizations and corporations that work with the GOOD community."
And from the Community Guidelines section:
"Contribute like you give a damn
More than anything, use your common sense and good manners. If you’re familiar with the good.is vibe, you know what’s right and wrong. Thanks for continuing to contribute and collaborate with your GOOD community."
Using these sources:
-Deconstructing horoscopes does not equal idealistic, and barely pragmatic to me.
-This is a completely negative article, nothing is "GOOD" about it, in a shallow sense of the word and its connotations.
-I, so to speak, 'give a damn,' so I really don't see how anything about this post is 'right.'

Agree wholeheartedly with other commenters who say this article has NO place in GOOD. I will unsubscribe if this is what will be written about.
