    Thumbs up History of astrology

    Its not yet confirmed when Indian Astrology started and from where did it started. At the same time, from past 100 years or more, there have been a thin black line of historians and other scholars concerned with Indian Astrology’s role in history.

    Choosing names of top astrologers has not been easy till date. Many have tried writing on some aspect of history involving Indian Astrology, but only few were able to make it a central scholarly concern. Indian Astrology is still not intellectually respectable, although as a practice it has undergone a remarkable revival since nineteenth century.

    Some scholars have written prolifically on Indian Astrology in history. Indian astrology is divided into many parts, out of which mathematical astrology, astrology in religion and astrology in arts are few well know ones. Indian astrology is also divided into many parts by man, for example: business and financial astrology, electional astrology, esoteric astrology, general astrology, horary astrology, karmic astrology, medical n health astrology, mundane n political astrology, natal astrology etc.

    There are thousands of software and website supporting Indian astrology for free.

    Out of curiosity, Which God do you pray to?

    Who cares? God condemned astrology in all it's forms. He condemns divination, which astrology is, and in Isaiah 47 He specifically condemns astrology by name. Hawkin's proves this very well in his work "WITCHCRAFT: EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WICCA."

    "and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him"

    So the Jewish leadership missed the birth, but these guys showed up?

    And who said it was correct to connect stars with time people being born?,

    Default History of astrology

    Astrological beliefs in correspondences between celestial observations and terrestrial events have influenced various aspects of human history, including world-views, language and many elements of social culture.Astrology is actually an ancient science that predates both astronomy and psychology. Studied and used throughout the world for thousands of years, astrology is the study of the interactions among the stars and the planets, based on intricate mathematical cycles.

    the proof that the wise men from the East were sent by god came when after they saw Jesus they were warned in a dream

    Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial objects as a means for divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events.[1][2][3] Astrology has been dated to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, and has its roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications.[4] Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and some – such as the Indians, Chinese, and Maya – developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations. Western astrology, one of the oldest astrological systems still in use, can trace its roots to 19th-17th century BCE Mesopotamia, from which it spread to Ancient Greece, Rome, the Arab world and eventually Central and Western Europe. Contemporary Western astrology is often ***ociated with systems of horoscopes that purport to explain aspects of a person's personality and predict significant events in their lives based on the positions of celestial objects; the majority of professional astrologers rely on such systems.
