ASTROLOGY – Ancient Terms For Modern Concepts

Astrology is an old pseudoscientific belief that supposedly determines events in our lives by reading the movement and relative positions of heavenly objects. It has been used for centuries as a technique for helping people predict events in their lives. This belief is not based on any scientific evidence, but many astrologers have made a business out of interpreting the movements of the planets. While there are several good books and websites that explain astrology, it is best to approach it from an scientific perspective.


An important question to ask is what astrology really is. Simply put, astrology is the study of celestial bodies and the relative positions they occupy in the sky. It differs from physics, in that it ignores matter, while physics considers only gravity and absolute space. The ancients believed that all things were connected, and that events in one area of the heavens affected events everywhere else. For instance, an object that blocked the path of a comet would eventually cause that comet to turn away from our solar system. Therefore, all things in the universe are interconnected, and our sun will affect the stars, the planets, and the stars’ movements.

To answer the question above, astrology uses celestial positioning and relative positions to predict the timing of specific events in someone’s life, such as a birthday or anniversary, or the time of birth. If you draw a birthday or anniversary chart, it can help you understand the connection between natal charts and planetary alignment. Natal charts, also called astrological birth charts, are simply graphical representations of the time and place of birth, and they are based on the position of the planets, stars, and other celestial objects at the time of a person’s birth.

Not all astrologers agree with this explanation. Some claim that the placement of planets and stars is not as important as how those planets and stars are aligned with each other. In this way, astrologers believe that all the meaning lies within the placement of the celestial bodies themselves. And therefore, these astrologers believe there is no need to correlate natal charts with astrological readings.

There are also those who say that astrological readings are just plain superstition and that celestial bodies are not important at all. They say that a lot of people believe in astrology, but there is no scientific proof to back this up. This debate goes on until today. But one thing is for certain: astrological beliefs are widespread, especially in the eastern parts of the world where horoscopes are part of daily life and belief in austerities is even more common.

There are many different schools of astrology in the world today. The most popular of these are Indian astrology, Arabic astrology, and Chinese astrology. Each of these has its own peculiarities and assumptions, as their historical backgrounds are different from each other. As a matter of fact, astrology is said to be the language of the cosmos which means that astrologers can translate the signs or planets into words that can literally mean anything.
