Astrology is the pseudo-scientific study of the impact of celestial bodies on the Earth and its inhabitants.
Astrology is one of the most ancient of the surviving magical and occult sciences, with evidence of a highly sophisticated system existing in Babylonian and Egyptian cultures.
Today's astrology primarily concerns itself with the reading of a horoscope chart cast based upon the moment of an individual's birth. In some cases, complex methods of progressing the planets of the birth chart enable the astrologer to predict the future for the person for whom the chart was cast. The chart is interpreted in relation to the influence of the zodiacal signs and the various powers the planets possess in these signs.
