What is astrology? Astrology is an ancient system of study of how celestial objects in the sky, planets, stars and the moon, affect our lives.
According to astrologers, the movement of these bodies exert an influence on people and events on earth, and they can influence your personalities traits, depending on where those bodies were positioned at the time of your birth.
Most of us are familiar with Western astrology and the system of horoscopes. The horoscope you read in a newspaper or magazine is based on your Sun Sign, the portion of the zodiac that the sun was passing through on the day you were born.
A horoscope is a type of divination. The type of horoscopes that you read in magazines are usually very general and by definition must apply to one twelfth of the population. Yet, there is so much more to an astrology reading than these sketchy daily horoscopes would suggest.
For example, a professional astrologer will ask for your exact time and date of birth and for the town or city you were born in. This allows them to draw up a birth chart – a diagram that represents planetary activity at the exact moment you were born. With this information, the astrologer can describe your basic personality, strengths, weaknesses, potential, karma and even past lives.
