Astrology



Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of what are called celestial objects…this is done as a means for divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events…now some people take this quite seriously…even world leaders have been known to consult astrologists before making a major decision…of course astrology has been around for so very long…and it has its roots in calendrical systems that are used to predict seasonal shifts as they are called…and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications…astrology in the western world is based on the construction of a horoscope for an exact moment…usually a person's birth…it uses the tropical zodiac, with signs such as Scorpio, Aries, etc…western astrology is founded on the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies such as the Sun, Moon and planets, which are analyzed by their movement through signs of the zodiac (twelve spatial divisions of the ecliptic) and by their aspects which are based on geometric angles relative to one another…they are also considered by their placement in houses (twelve spatial divisions of the sky)…this is all quite interesting but why is it that two people born in the world at the same exact time will have different lives and circumstances that happen to them?...often common horoscopes (the ones you find in a newspaper or online) are so general that someone seeking guidance will find something relevant in them no matter what they say…the popular version is usually reduced to sun sign astrology…that is only the zodiac sign of the Sun at a person’s birth…and thus only represents about 1/12 of the total astrological chart…how the stars and planets may affect us is quite interesting.
