Astrology as a PseudoScience

These claims belie its true nature in that it has, and will always remain a pseudo-science.For the purpose of this proper analysis, our ancestors created a chart to provide the apparent yearly path of the sun with respect to the stars and planets from the eyes of a viewer on earth. This chart was divided into twelve equal sections, and these sections were designated after the constellation that was situated within its limits as per the ancient times. This gave rise to the horoscopes, and the twelve zodiac signs, as we know it today, consisting of Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Astrology claims that on the basis of the horoscopes, and the zodiac signs, it is possible to predict the temperament and destiny of an individual, by looking at the zodiac sign at the time of the birth of the individual, as well as its relationship to the position of the planets at that time. (1)There has been an attempt to provide a psychological aspect to astrology, in that it can provide a better understanding of the psyche of an individual, and provide a basis for personality analysis. (2)Science may be taken as the collective effort of humanity, by the use of the mental capabilities of reasoning, analysis, criticism, and formulation of reference systems, to understand each and every aspect of the perceived reality of the world. This understanding is achieved with respect to conceptual categories, by making use of mathematical analysis and sophisticated instruments. Every branch of science displays this collective effort.
