You are probably as aware of criticisms astrology receives as I am. But, interestingly, those who are quick to condemn astrology as a load of hocus pocus hogwash often forget one very important thing: we all make dozens of predictions every day, and many of these are done with calendars and clocks in mind. For example, we might say 'next Tuesday I will finish work at 5:00, I will be going out with some friends and will be home after midnight'.
In doing so, we are making a prediction based entirely upon facts available. The solar system is another way of telling the time, albeit a more complicated method than reading the positioning of hands on a clock. By reading what has happened, establishing as best we can why it happened and making some logical calculations about what is likely to happen again and when, astrologers can make predictions about the future.
There is nothing mystical about astrology. Magical yes, but not mystical. As stated elsewhere in this website
, astrology is not an art, it is a science. It is the science of relationships; it is the science of life and it is the practicing of life that is the art.
