A brief history of Astrology

Many traditional forms and functions use astrological ideas that came from its earliest beginnings around the 3rd millennium BC. Astrology has played a significant role in the determining culture, ancient astronomy, the Vedas, and several trainings through human history.

In fact, astrology and astronomy, were often combined before the modern era, with the longing for future and divine knowledge one of the provoking reasons for celestrial observation. Astronomy began to split from astrology from the Renaissance up until the 18th century. finally, astronomy designated itself as the study of astronomical objects and phenomena, without relating to astrology.

The word “astrology” comes from the Latin term astrologia (“astronomy”), which is derived from the Greek noun αστρολογία: ἄστρον, astron (“constellation” or “star”) and -λογία, -logia (“the study of”).

The correlation between planetary mechanics and Earth dynamics was looked into first by Isaac Newton with his creation of a theory of gravity, claiming that the gravitational pull of the celestial bodies are the basis for astrological generalizations are not validated by scientific examination, niether are they condoned by most astrologers.
