Post Astrology --- Definition

Astrology is a pseudoscience that claims to divine information about human affairs and terrestrial events by studying the movements and relative positions of celestial objects.[1][2][3][4] Astrology has been dated to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, and has its roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications.[5] Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and some—such as the Hindus, Chinese, and the Maya—developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations. Western astrology, one of the oldest astrological systems still in use, can trace its roots to 19th–17th century BCE Mesopotamia, from which it spread to Ancient Greece, Rome, the Arab world and eventually Central and Western Europe. Contemporary Western astrology is often associated with systems of horoscopes that purport to explain aspects of a person's personality and predict significant events in their lives based on the positions of celestial objects; the majority of professional astrologers rely on such systems.[6]:83

I don't know what all the numbers refer to. Astrology recognises that stars and planets are energetic Beings, and it is an attempt to interpret the interplay of these planetary energies and forces as they affect the affairs of humanity and the individual. Everything is connected. Unfortunately, popular astrology is a very limited representation of true astrology. Perhaps one day, when humanity has a greater understanding of this subject, astrology will be elevated from a pseudoscience to a very real science.

Peace

Well, I guess that wasn't a question....
But as I understand it, Astrology, is yes - a science, that kings etc used to decide how to hire members of their court....

but besides all that, its a representation, in simplest terms, of the most prominent energies available to you, given to you at the time of birth.

Merry Christmas.

Yup.
And you understand this better seeing the movie on youtube
'The Star of Bethlehem'...more about Copernicus and NASA and
mathematics and the Swiss-Clock precision of the 'stars', than anything.

Astrology is a science and an art, and as others have said it's based on the activity of some of the most profound beings in existence, the planets and stars and stuff.

I don't know how it works, but it is really uncanny when you dissect the aspects of someone's birth chart and see so clearly how their planets impact different aspects of their life and personality. You have to try it properly for yourself to see how evident it is, really. and you can try to fathom how those twinkly bright lights in the sky designed this zodiac wheel for you and govern integral parts of your being, but it's probably better to spend that energy and time trying to understand your divine unique birth chart and yourself through it.
