To most of us, Astrology means daily, weekly or monthly horoscope predictions published in newspaper or magazine. Say, you born between March 20th and April 21st, so your Zodiac sign is Aries. Does this mean same predictions apply to you that apply to half a billion people born under this sun sign or vice-a-versa?
Answer would be obviously not. Then what Astrology is ? And how does it affects you?
The term astrology is derived from the Greek words astron and logos, which literally means "stars" and "study". Legitimate astrology is founded on logical observation and deductive reasoning and is not superstition or magic. It is a body of knowledge or science that charts the positions of planets at the exact time and place of a person's birth and determines the overall effect of celestial electromagnetic forces on a given individual's personality and behaviors throughout the course of his/her lifetime based on thousands of years of cumulative research. It is this study of planetary positioning at the time of a person's birth that allows astrologers to predict the future, for instance, an intensive study of a person's birth chart would allow an astrologer to predict horoscope love match by birth date.
It is a proven fact that celestial bodies that make up our solar system affect life on Earth. The ocean tides are the result of the gravitational pull exerted by the Moon as it revolves round the Earth. In the same way, human beings are electrochemical beings and are subtly and profoundly affected by any changes in the solar system's electromagnetic field. There are studies even by the philosopher Carl G. Jung on this subject.
Astrology is not a young science. In fact, astrology gave birth to the more modern science of astronomy. This is because astrologers were first scientists to document the planet's motions with mathematical accuracy. The oldest written documents of astral observations, discovered in India and China, are over five thousand years old.
So why do modern-day, realistic world leaders, corporate CEO's, physicians, physicists as well ordinary working people consult personal astrologers about critical situations before acting or reacting? What is it that leads highly educated individuals around the world to turn to such an ancient science looking for guidance and to consult a horoscope at critical crossroads in life?
The term horoscope comes from the Greek word "horo" indicating “time” and "scop" meaning “to look at” and it literally means a birth diagram of the specific astronomical pattern in the heavens based on individual's time and place of birth. This diagram is unique for every single person of this world.
