What is astrology?
Astrology was born in the dawn of time, through the observation of movements in the sky, in correlation with terrestrial events. Astrology means: “The language of the stars ”. It is a discipline which requires a good understanding of symbols for a relevant interpretation of the observed phenomena.
Your astral chart is a symbolic language that speaks to you about the link between the image of the sky at the time of your birth and your subconscious. Astrology allows us to update the image of our unconscious.
Astrology is a system based on the position of the stars allowing a better knowledge of oneself and others.
Is astrology a science?
Astrology does not have the criteria associated with the exact sciences as mathematics and physics may have, for example. It is often classified among the divinatory arts because it is based on predictions .
Astrology interprets the influence of the movements of the planets on us. It evokes influences and not an obligatory and fixed vision of the future.
