Description

The practice of astrology is older than astronomy - the scientific study of the cosmic objects. But astrology cannot be classified as a scientific discipline because it is basically a product of human ignorance and fear.

Today we know what the stars and planets are and what makes them move. There is no known mechanism by which their position in the sky can influence or control human fate. Most people go to astrologers out of fear, in the hope of assuaging life’s great anxieties.

This book is primarily aimed at presenting in a logical manner the elements of astrology as practiced and to show why the assumptions and methodology used by astrologers for making forecasts on the basis of birth charts or horoscopes are incompatible with the method of science.
