What is Astrology?

Astrology is the science of finding the connection between the planets and celestial bodies and how these cycles affect humans and life on Earth.

Astrology is very old practice, rooted in ancient Babylon. Ancient Chaldeans used to observe the movements of the planets and stars and have assigned them godlike characters and powers. The planets were worshiped as gods and each planet became the ruler of certain areas of life. The ancient astrologers who advised kings and rulers, interpreted the patterns of the planets as signs of what was to come.

It is believed that the Moon affects the tides of the ocean, so why wouldn’t affect humans? According to many astrologers, the Moon rules our emotional nature and our body consists of 85% water.

Throughout history, many famous people and scientists have studied astrology and used it for different purposes.

Astrology today serves as a great tool of character analysis and spiritual advice. Although future events are still part of the chart reading, they are now known as “forecasting”. Astrology is a method used to predict events, and gain information about past and present.

A horoscope is the picture of the positions of the planets during the birth of an individual. The preparation of a horoscope requires the exact time, date and place of birth of the individual, which will provide the exact positions of the planets during the time of birth, so the horoscope is different for everybody.
