Is astrology a science like astronomy, and since when can you determine behavior by looking at a planet?
Just clarifying a few things here. There are some people that continue to use this argument, that Astrology IS a science just like Astronomy.
I have absolutely no idea to how a constellation or planets determine personality in human beings and their behavior. There doesn’t seem to be any evidence to support this either.
What is “scientific” about horoscopes?
Answer by Steven
Easiest question of the decade. NO. and NO science in astrology.
Answer by Andrew
Astrology is not a science. It was thought of as a science prior to telescopes (and still today)
“I have absolutely no idea to how a constellation or planets determine personality in human beings and their behavior.”
Good, because they dont.
“There doesn’t seem to be any evidence to support this either”
The only way the cosmos influence me is what am i going to point my telescope at tonight.
There is no science behind horoscopes.

“…Astrology and astronomy were archaically one and the same discipline (Latin: astrologia), and were only gradually recognized as separate in Western 17th century philosophy (the “Age of Reason”).
Since the 18th century they have come to be regarded as completely separate disciplines. Astronomy, the study of objects and phenomena originating beyond the Earth’s atmosphere, is a science and is a widely-studied academic discipline. Astrology, which uses the apparent positions of celestial objects as the basis for psychology, prediction of future events, and other esoteric knowledge, is not a science and is typically defined as a form of divination. …”

It doesn’t mean it’s bad. It just means it’s not a science.
Answer by Tim
While early astrologers should be given proper credit for their meticulous observations and record keeping that much of modern astronomy relies on, the idea that the stars somehow influence human behavior is not supported by the evidence and should be considered as much junk science as “intelligent” design.

Answer by Aries Astrum
I have an Aries sun, Pisces mercury and a Virgo moon.
Where I am, it is Saturday night, so, naturally, I will be going to bed to read and sleep. At the moment, I wish to talk to J.K.Rowling because I always have, and always will, want to talk to her. J.K.Rowling, Joanne, is a Leo sun and, to be honest, I just want a casual conversation. Naturally, I would expect answers that have something to do with the questions I would ask, for example: “How are you?” “Very well”.
From what I have read and heard, J.K.Rowling used to smoke, even as a teenager, about a whole packet a day. But, since she started writing, she quit smoking and started playing Minesweepers instead … No, I do not smoke for it has never really “tickled my fancies” to force 200 poisons through my veins. The closest smoker I am with is probably my brothers friend, who is a Scorpio – I think.
Personally, I have always been interested in the Virgo personality. I have a Virgo moon, though I don’t know much about a Pisces mercury, and I more fond of it. A lot of people speak rather negatively about the Virgo sign and I do not know, honestly, why.
