- Horoscope comes from the Greek “horoskopos” meaning time observer and refers to an astrological prediction of a person's future based on their time, date and place of birth. This is often confused with an astrological reading which is an in-depth personality profile created by interpreting the same astrological information.
Astrology and Science
Science minded individuals have discounted and discredited Astrology, and all that it stands for, for decades.
At the same time, Astrology is becoming more and more popular every single year.
How can we hold on to our beliefs about Astrology while continuing to embrace the science around our solar system and beyond?
In the scientific community, it’s easy to find a scientist stating with authority that Astrology has been tested and found unsupportive to its premise. Science says that Astrology has not demonstrated its effectiveness. Scientists are quick to comment that in controlled studies, Astrology had no scientific validity. They state that if we are to believe in Astrology, then we must believe in Astrology’s failed attempts to predict outcomes.
But how real are all these claims by scientists and what do professional Astrologer’s claim about their profession?
Honest astrologers do not view predictive Astrology as anything other than light entertainment. The predictive horoscopes that you can read in any newspaper around the world are written for the masses. And of course, in order to get to the heart of the matter in Astrology, you need to look closer.
Professional astrologers believe that Astrology cannot be scientifically proven in the way that science has tested it thus far.
Astrology is not a prediction of who you are or precisely what will happen to you. It’s a set of prescriptions about the various life choices available to you based on your birth chart. Astrology cannot predict what will happen to you on any given day or how you should react to your circumstances.
Instead, Astrology says this is what you have come here to learn, and this is who you can be in your highest self and who you can be in your lowest self. You decide!
Astrology says that this is one of the issues you have come here to heal, and these are your possible choices to allow this to progress. It teaches that there are certain options at your disposal based on the planets, the signs the planets are in and their house placement in your particular chart.
Astrology gives you numerous variables in order for you to make an informed decision based on your particular planetary placements. Any honest astrologer will tell you that it is your free will to decide the best course of action for you.
Astrologers wonder why science is so adamant to discount Astrology. If Astrology did not help people, or make sense for the vast majority of followers, it would have disappeared long ago. But since Astrology is becoming increasingly popular, it stands to reason that it will be discredited by anyone who does not truly understand it.
Professional Astrologers have been heard to say that the only people who do not believe in Astrology are the people that know nothing about it.
There are famous persons in history that were convinced that Astrology had a place in mainstream society. One of them, Dr. Carl Jung, a renowned psychologist, stated “We are born at a given moment in a given place and like vintage years of wine, have the qualities of the year and of the season in which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything else.”
If you want to know the truth about Astrology, research it with an open mind: look at your own chart results and have a reputable astrologer speak about it to you. You may just find that there is a lot of wisdom, truth and validity within it that you cannot explain with your intellect. Go ahead and try. Astrology can prove itself to anyone with an open heart and mind.
