What is Astrology?

When you gaze at the stars, do you read deeply into your inner soul and what the future holds for you?

The study of Astrology observes the position of the stars, sun, moon, and various planetary bodies at the time of your birth.

The twelve signs of the zodiac encompass just one piece of the puzzle of life as analyzed through astrology readings.

An astrologer looks also into the twelve houses—divisions of the ecliptic plane—which rely on the time and location for their positions.

Your astrology report comprises many key facets of life, including family, wealth, pleasure, partnerships, health, and reincarnation, among others.

Astrology links phenomena to natural events that happen around the world. It is a subject with a deep history and many countries still use it as part of their culture – and believe in it.

The Western world often sees astrology as the reading of horoscopes to predict everything that will happen in the day.

For example, the Chinese use yin and yang and have a different calendar to the Western world.

Their zodiac signs are animals, including the ox, rat and tiger.

The Chinese use a complicated system to predict someone's future, which includes the hour, day and season of birth.

It is important to understand that it is much more than predicting the future and to do this, you need to understand the history.

It was not until astronomy became more understood that people started to question the subject.
