The Science of Astrology

Astrology has been one of the most misunderstood sciences that has existed since ancient times and has always enjoyed a loyal following. It is called a Pseudo-Science by many because theories proving the accuracy of astrological findings are yet to be made. Upon closer analysis, however, the accuracy of predictions, the unexplainable way in which people have been grouped into various groups to help understand their personality traits, weaknesses and strengths – all contribute to the ever growing popularity of astrology. During old times, decisions of kings were based upon rune readings, the study of planets and charts prepared by experts adept in this subject. Risks were avoided and the future was not entirely a realm of the unknown. Prophesies were made by the Oracle and many of these came true, making more and more people depend on it for a healthier and fulfilling life.
The Beginnings of Astrology
Astrology dates back to the time when the Babylonians used it to predict the recurrence of seasons and also certain celestial events. For around 2000 years, both astrology and astronomy were said to be the same science. The birth of Astrology is credited to the Babylonians. In the 4th century BC the Greeks were said to be introduced to Astrology and exhaustive work done by Plato, Aristotle and other Greek Philosophers ensured the popularity of Astrology as a Science.
Hindu Astrology
Historical documentation available on Hindu Astrology or Horoscopic Astrology suggests that it came from Hellenic influences post-dating the Vedic Period. Jyotisha is the term that is used to refer to Hindu Astrology, Indian Astrology or Vedic Astrology.
