What is astrology
Astrology is a set of beliefs organized to obtain information about terrestrial phenomena from observable celestial phenomena. The word astrology comes from the Greek? Στρον, Astro (which means star) and λ? Γος. Logos (which means speech). Etymologically, astrology is therefore a "discourse on the stars", focusing on the sun and the planets of the solar system. Astrology is outside the rational or scientific realm, so it's up to you to believe it. Nowadays, its most popular use is characterized mainly by an interpretation system called a horoscope.

Historically, astrology dates back to the 2nd millennium BC. Its origin lies in attempts to predict seasonal changes linked to interpretations of celestial cycles, considered to be signs of divine communication. Many cultures have used it to create an elaborate system for predicting earthly events from celestial observations, such as the Chinese, Hindus or Mayans. It then spread around the globe to become a learned and common tradition in academia, closely related to astronomy, alchemy, meteorology and sometimes medicine. She also had a strong influence in political and literary circles, and is mentioned in many literary works such as Shakespeare. It was not until the end of the 19th century, with the adoption of the scientific method, that astrology was contested and criticized.
