Astrology is an umbrella term for many different natural sciences that claim to detect and predict future events. This includes (but is not limited to) astronomy, geology, meteorology, and astrology. While there are proponents of astrology who believe in its usefulness as a tool for making astrological charts and predicting future events, astrology as a science has never been accepted by the scientific community. Instead, astrology is often seen as pseudo-science with no scientific validity. Some common arguments against astrology include:
ASTROLOGY vs. Astronomy: The fact that astrology is based on the movement of heavenly bodies rather than fixed stars cannot be easily argued. In addition, celestial objects such as the sun, moon, planets, and stars all move around other celestial bodies like comets and quails, which also move around other fixed stars. Therefore, the argument that astrology cannot be used to make astrological charts is simply untrue. While some opponents do believe that there are some exceptions to the rule, most discount the idea that astrology can be used to make astrological charts and predictions.
ASTROLOGY VS. Astronomy: Astrology is nothing more than “psychometry,” which consists of studying the movement of heavenly bodies using stars and other objects that can be measured and observed. By studying stellar fields and aligning yourself with them, you can read a star chart and make predictions about future dates and events. While astrology is not “just” astronomy, it shares many similarities with astronomy in that the observed universe includes a great number of celestial bodies, each of which spin around their own axis and orbit around another star. Furthermore, it is mathematically impossible to project the path of any celestial body through the unaided human eye. Therefore, astrologers cannot make accurate predictions about future dates and events.
Planet and Star Map: The primary method of astrology, called the astrological map, is based on the positions of the major planets and stars. These maps are typically interpreted by astrological practitioners as representing a particular event or occurrence and are usually drawn on the tablet, stone or wood. However, modern astrology does not rely solely on these maps, but uses the knowledge of the placement of the planets and stars as well as their semi-permanent phase around the Milky Way Galaxy as well as various other aspects of the universe. This information is then used to make astrological charts.
Celestial System: The subject of celestial navigation, astrology considers the positioning of celestial bodies as well as the relative movement of heavenly bodies. In fact, when astrologers use a star chart they are actually using a navigation system. For example, if the zodiac signs were reversed, this would cause the placement of the planets to be different. Additionally, the phases of the moon also have an effect on astrological charts.
Lunar System: Astrologers also consider the lunar cycles and the effects that it has on the placement of celestial objects and planets. They are the experts to determine which elements and compounds will have the strongest influence on the placement of your birth chart. The effects of the phases of the moon can alter the alignment of your celestial bodies and can even influence the placement of your planets and stars. Additionally, the phases of the moon also affect our mood and our emotions. A good astrologer will be able to help you determine which moods to expect in your future and how these affects will affect the placement of your planets and stars.
