Why do skeptics of astrology attempt to associate it with religion or religious practice?
Answer by Mark F
Because like those it is a mythology, a belief system, not a science.

I trust you are referring to Western astrology, rather than to Eastern astrology where the roots of the field are inherently intertwined with religion. Franz Boll said, “Astrology wants to be religion and science at the same time; that marks its essence.”
In his book, _Astrology: Between Religion and the Empirical_, Dr. Gustav-Adolf Schoener writes, “If we look in an encyclopedia of the natural sciences, we find under the heading “astrology” that we are concerned here with a misguided variant of orbital mechanics, because astrology also takes an interest in orbital mechanics and is therefore seen as a phenomenon of the natural sciences . If, on the other hand, one consults an encyclopedia of theology or religious studies, its mythological and polytheistic content is usually referred to, whereby the belief in a multitude of star-gods is then underlined . Reference works with an esoteric emphasis view astrology in its psychological, therapeutic sense, whereby all organic life is seen in one great spiritual context .”
He points out a key to understanding modern astrology as the necessity of tracing “the way in which an originally mythical picture of the cosmos picks up natural-scientific, medicinal, and psychological knowledge, as well as nature-mystical and spiritual ideas, and forms all of these individual areas into a unique world view.”
Imo, therefore, it’s an attempt on the part of the skeptics to disassociate astrology from any consideration of scientific perspectives.
Ironic, isn’t it, when you consider that astrology and astronomy were once under the same umbrella? I’m sure there were some egos hurt when astrology, during the Middle Ages, ended up with a department chair at the University of Bologna.
Dr. Schoener adds, “But in its scientific side, astrology is also very sober. It divides the heavens into geometrically exact sectors, calculates—like every astronomer—the orbits of the planets, and employs complicated calculations to obtain from the manifold movements of the earth and the heavenly bodies the horoscope. The word horoscope goes back to the Greek and means roughly: “looking into the hour.” By this it is meant that the astrologer, in accordance with the exact time a person is born, observes the heavens and calculates all the planets, as well as the sign of the zodiac rising over the eastern horizon—which is then identified as “ascendant.” He then prepares a chart which indicates the astronomically exact positions of the stars in relation to the place of birth. Astrology is thus also quite simply astronomy, or better: its religious understanding of the cosmos is based on exact scientific calculations.”
Skeptics would prefer to have astrology likened to religion so people forget the correlations to astronomy.
(Any idea how quickly now that a certain team of TDers will start? I’ve never seen such venomous hatred in a single act like that before.)
Just my opinion, for what it’s worth. Hope it helps.

Because it is. It’s not science it’s a faith based belief system.
