What is Astrology?

Updated: Aug 10, 2023


Astrology is the study of the effects of celestial bodies on the lives of terrestrial species. Celestial bodies mean the Sun, the planets in the solar system, and the specific constellations far from the earth. In the case of any being, it is considered a timed event from the point of its birth, taking into account all the influencing parameters at that particular time and its life is depending on the further development of the mutual positioning of the considered parameters along the time coordinate.

Planets are constantly in motion concerning the earth in the skies. The positions of Sun, Moon, and some planets close to earth can give important clues about then experiences of individual human beings and groups of human beings. Astrology talks about males, females, and trans-genders.


That is the basic premise of astrology. How exactly we can make guesses about the fortunes of individual human beings and groups of human beings based on the positions of those planets in the skies is the question that we will attempt to answer in this study. While astrology is the subject that deals with this question, there are many theories and philosophies in vogue and they are significantly different from each other.


Sun-sign astrology ( Western Astrology), for example, is based on categorizing people into 12 groups based on the solar month of birth. Some people may be convinced, based on their experiences, that people born in the same month share certain qualities. It is, however, not very logical from a rational perspective – there are just too many people in this world, who are different from each other. So the month of one's birth is inadequate for guessing one's nature or fortune. Even the date and the hour of birth are not enough. We know that there are many twins in this world, who are significantly different from each other! What we mentioned just now is, by the way, a very important question to be answered – it is like an “acid test” for any astrological doctrine. It is a known fact that there are many twins in this world, who are significantly different from each other and who lead different lives. Of course, some twins may have some common qualities between them, but the fact remains that several twins are significantly different. An astrological doctrine should be capable of explaining this fact to be considered a meaningful subject.


Most astrological doctrines of the world fail this acid test. If an astrological doctrine assumes, like in the case of many popular astrological theories of the world, that two persons born within a couple of hours in nearby towns will have the same fortune, then that doctrine is lacking in completeness and inadequate for confidence use in real-life. It fails the acid test of twins.
