What is Astrology?

Is it the Sun Sign Horoscope in the Newspaper or something more?

There are many answers one can give, but the simplest is Astrology is the belief that something born in a moment of time has qualities of that moment in time.  It assumes there is order (not chaos) in God’s Universe.  That “As above so below” is operating!

You can also describe Astrology as a complex symbolic system based on a tradition that there is a correlation between relative position of celestial bodies and terrestrial concerns.

Various Astrological techniques are used to interpret the meaning of that correlation and to provide information about personality, human affairs, the soul’s purpose for this incarnation, and other terrestrial matters.

To the skeptic astrology is a silly and worthless superstition claiming divination by the position of the planets.

Furthermore, there are many misconceptions regarding astrology. For instance, the horoscopes listed in the daily newspapers are only based on the sign position of the Sun, whereas full natal astrology takes many more things into account. The application of astrology to people can be approached as a study of individuality, from either a psychological perspective or on a predictive, event-based level. Constellations are not the Zodiac, and the planets do not control you from some mysterious force field!

Contrary to its popular but erroneous reputation as a New Age subject, astrology is actually an ancient science that predates both astronomy and psychology.

Studied and used throughout the world for thousands of years, astrology is the study of the interactions among the stars and the planets, based on intricate mathematical cycles.

The earliest known astrological records date back to Babylon, 1645 BC, and the earliest horoscope to 410 BC. Astrology’s origins can also be traced to several other locations and cultures, including Egypt 4000 BC, which developed sophisticated timekeeping and calendar sciences; Greece, where Ptolemy authored influential astrological and astronomical texts; and Rome, where many of the most learned men — including two emperors — were astrologers who wrote laws and counseled citizens based on the stars.
