Astrology is the belief that the alignment of stars and planets at an individual's time of birth affect their mood, personality, and environment. In astrology, personalized horoscopes are printed by birth date and make vague predictions, generally about the love life, success, and health of everyone who has that sign. But how does this work? Can the movement of planets have this much impact?
Yes, zodiac signs influence our lives
Astrologers work on the belief that the planetary positions at the time of birth affect a person’s life in a variety of ways. Western astrology is focused on giving people what they need the most at the darkest times in their lives - reassurance.
Zodiac signs influence our personality
Celestial phenomena are related to human activity, so the signs represent certain characteristics of behavior and personality traits.
Astrology is a superstition that has no scientific basis. Its roots can be traced at least as far back as the Mesopotamian civilisation of the third millennium B.C. Today, astrology remains a popular delusion. It has trickled down to everyone, found routinely in newspapers and magazines.
Zodiac signs are pseudoscience
Pseudoscience is a broad category of activities and claims with similarities to scientific activities but lacking specific aspects of scientific work.
Some people claim that astrology (as practiced in its current form) is based on thousands of years of tradition. Until recently, explorers of modern astrology didn’t even have proper access to the classical astrological texts on which their predictions were based.
