How does astrology actually work?

Astrologers print horoscopes in newspapers that are personalized by date of birth. These horoscopes make predictions in people's personal lives, describe their personality and give them advice - all in accordance with the position of astronomical bodies. The reason why the Aryan culture looked so much at the stars is that they were nomads. Since there were no roads, they needed to find out which is north, which is south, which is east, and which is west.

When the sun came up, they knew it. Once the sun went down, there was nothing but fire and stars. So the Aryan culture revolved around fire and stars. Even today, if people want to get married or do something auspicious, they go around fire because nomadic cultures live on fire and stars.

Fire gave you light, warmth and protection from wild animals. The stars told you roughly which way to go. Slowly, observing the stars, they calculated the way forward. They kept looking up and their knowledge of the stars increased.

The interpretations began and they developed a certain mastery and knowledge about the stars. Pop astrology was born in the late 19th century during the boom of exploration of the new age, and was then driven by developments in psychology in the 20th century. The fundamentals of astrology tend to be at odds with numerous basic facts of scientific disciplines. But discarding all astrology altogether undermines ideas that ancient practitioners may have had ideas that are impossible to access from our concrete jungles, perpetual digital connectivity, and space exploration.

The astrologer Wonder Bright, a former student of George, thinks that the modern astrology approach is also a positive contribution to art. From the Quinense network of knowledge, there is a dichotomy in which one must reject astrology or accept astrology, but reject all established scientific disciplines that are incompatible with astrology. People who claim that astrology (as practiced in its current form) is based on thousands of years of tradition are wrong. Modern astrology also hastily assigned a huge influence to the newly discovered planets of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto without the centuries of observational data with which Hellenistic astrologers worked.

Astrologer and psychologist Michel Gauquelin claimed to have found statistical support for the Mars effect on athletes' birth dates, but it could not be replicated in later studies. Astrology provides the quintessential example of a pseudoscience, since it has been repeatedly tested and failed all the tests. Not all studies are the same, and if you look hard enough in the literature, you'll find some studies that at least seem to suggest that astrology might work. People have been studying astrology for thousands of years, and to become a horoscope reader, you need to familiarize yourself with the basics, reading books, reading horoscope charts, and practicing interpretations.

Carlson carried out what is considered to be the most comprehensive test of astrologers' abilities to extract information about their clients from the apparent positions of celestial objects seen from the places and times of their clients' birth. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson commented on astrological belief, saying that part of knowing how to think is knowing how the laws of nature shape the world around us. Until recently, explorers of modern astrology did not even have adequate access to the classical astrological texts on which their predictions were based.
