Astrology is the study of how the sun, moon, planets, and stars are supposedly related to life and events here on the earth.
It is based on the belief that the heavenly bodies form patterns that can
reveal a person's character or future. Astrology developed from a set of principles that originated more than 2,000 years ago.
The basic principle of astrology is that the heavenly bodies influence what happens on the earth. Astrologers learn about this influence by drawing (or casting)
a circular chart called a horoscope or birth chart. A horoscope shows the position
of the planets in relation to both the earth and the stars at a certain time.
In most cases, it shows the position of these bodies at the time of a person's birth.
Many people today believe astrology is simply a superstition, and scientists declare that its whole basis is unscientific. Scientists point out, for example,
that the position of the earth has changed in space since ancient times. As a result,
the signs of the zodiac used by astrologers no longer match the constellations for which they were named.
Some people who believe in astrology support it in terms of magnetic fields, solar storms, and other natural occurrences. Others, though they also believe
in astrology, claim that it cannot be supported scientifically. They consider it a set of
powerful symbols that can provide a deep understanding of human beings.
They defend astrology by pointing out that, in many cases, it works.
