Astrology is an ancient Indian science which explains planetary motions
and positions with respect to time and their effect on humans and other
entities on earth.
Astrology is the science of the effects of the planets movements on our
lives and all things.
Astrology is based on astronomy in that astrologers need to know the
correct positions of the planets at any given time, as well as the
correct positions of the zodiacal fixed star signs in relation to any
place on earth at any given time. Once the correct positions of the
signs and planets are known, the astrologer then constructs charts
representing these positions, and using the astrological science,
studies the charts and can make quite a wide range of conclusions about
the moment the chart.
Astrology sees mankind as being not only influenced by hereditary
factors and the environment, but also by the state of our solar system
at the moment of birth. The planets are regarded as basic life-forces,
the tools we live by as well as the basis of our very substance. These
planetary forces take on different forms, depending on their zodiacal
position and on the way they relate to one another. The aspects formed
between the planets describe these relationships, the positions of the
planets in relation to the place of birth tell us of their expression in
the spheres of life depicted by the astrological houses. By interpreting
the roles of these players (the planets) and their qualities (the
elements, signs and houses) and creating a synthesis, astrology is able
to present a complete and comprehensive picture of the person and his
potential, based on the natal horoscope.
Astrology is without doubt the original science, the oldest of the
systems of knowledge devised by human beings. It is the science of
fate/destiny used for understanding events happening on earth.
Astrology is not only the foremost of the outer sciences which deal with
the nature of the physical universe, it is one of the most important of
the inner or spiritual sciences which deal with the mind and soul.
