Astrology FAQ

1. What is astrology?

Astrology is the study of correspondences between the motion and positions of celestial bodies and human personality; in some senses, the study of correlations between the movements of planets and events on Earth and the language we use to understand and interpret the meaning of time.

2. Is astrology true?

Astrology is unproven to the satisfaction of the editors of most science journals, but obviously true to most of the people who study it. The deep dark mystery is why this is the case and the simple answer is either that the editors of science journals don’t study astrology or that the people who study astrology aren’t like the editors of science journals and demand less proof. Because astrology is founded upon the idea that time has meaning and appears, if it works in the way it is supposed to work, to be holographic in nature, then it is unlikely to be proven using simplistic approaches and most experimentation is flawed. The human element in astrology suggests it is linked very closely to consciousness and while it is undisputed, consciousness itself is not understood by science. Astrology therefore is poorly understood and is very complex. Enmeshment in the system of time makes it difficult for us to analyse, deconstruct and evaluate its meaningful nature. It is possible to demonstrate astrology, but again this is a somewhat difficult exercise.

3. Is dynamic astrology different to traditional astrology?

There are people who place great faith in the day’s horoscope and swear by it. On the other hand, there are those who find that the horoscope does not even remotely match their day’s experiences. This is because what you read in the newspaper is sun sign astrology. It is a simplified form of traditional astrology. In sun sign astrology only the position of the sun is considered while assigning an individual his zodiac sign. While this practice is not truly wrong, neither is it correct. In a sense, you could say that this type of astrology walks middle path. Traditional astrology is based upon a view of the world that dynamic astrology expands upon. Nothing in traditional astrology is contradicted by dynamic astrology apart from the fact that the traditional view is a complete view.

4. How does dynamic astrology relate to newspaper horoscopes?

A large number of people turn to the horoscope page first when they read a newspaper. Similarly, horoscope columns in magazines are among the most popular sections. The horoscopes you read in the newspaper are not adequately reflective of traditional static astrology, although they may be likened to poetry poems not being a complete reflection of literature generally. Dynamic astrology challenges some of the ideas of sun sign astrology, primarily the fact that your natal sun will change signs some time before your thirtieth birthday. This is not, as a rule, a popular notion among sun sign astrologers.

5. When Newspaper sun sign columns were begun? How did it originate?

William Lilly was the first person to begin the practice of publishing horoscopes in the newspaper. He was a famous astrologer from England who is best known for predicting the ‘great fire of London’ which took place in 1666. In 1930, the newspaper claimed that Naylor had predicted the crash of the British airship R101, on its maiden voyage, before the event actually occurred. Newspaper sun sign columns were begun in 1930. Astro-journalism is criticised by skeptics and counter-advocates of astrology, but it is an easy target and many astrologers agree with the skeptics. After trial and error, he hit upon the idea of using only the sun signs to make his predictions. This method of forecasting horoscopes continues to be used even today, in newspapers, all around the world.

6. What is sun sign astrology based on?

Geographically, the sun forms the center of our solar system. All the planets revolve around it. The sun is the source of all the light and heat that the planets receive. The sun is also one of the most important astrological elements. Every day, the sun rises and sets in a slightly different place from the previous day. This is because of the earth’s movement around the sun.
According to this branch of astrology, the only information required is a person’s birth date. A sun sign is then assigned to the individual, based on the position of the sun within one of the twelve Zodiac signs. These signs are correlated to an individual’s month of birth.

7. What is an aspect?

An aspect is a geometric (or astrometric) angle made by planets as they travel through the zodiac. Aspects can be measured in real-time or they can be measured between different horoscopes.

8. What is the zodiac?

The zodiac is the field through which we measure planetary motion from a human Earth-centred point of view. Planets are central to astrology – like players in a football game: zodiacs are just fields upon which planets play. Zodiac signs are the most widely known attributes of astrology, yet they are the least important.

9. What is an opposition?

An opposition happens when two planets are exactly opposite each other in the zodiac (give or take a couple of degrees). In relationships, oppositions sometimes signify attraction, however, the reason for this is that opposites fill gaps. The outcome of an opposition can sometimes be friction and discord as personal differences become more acute over time. Harmonically the opposition can be described as 360/2

10. What Is A Sun Sign?

Calculating Sun sign of a person is very easy and is done on the basis of date of birth of an individual. Each of these sign has its particular traits or characters. Some of these traits are creativity, ego, romantic and sexual preferences. These factors make Astrology of Sun sign important for the purpose of compatibility check every day, the sun rises and sets in a slightly different place from the previous day. This is because of the earth’s movement around the sun. Sun symbolizes the individuality of a person and dictates his mannerisms and outer appearance. Sun sign of a person is the sign which corresponds to the position of the Sun on the birth date of that person. There are total of 12 Sun signs namely: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Each of these sign has its particular traits or characters. Some of these traits are creativity, ego, romantic and sexual preferences. These factors make Astrology of Sun sign important for the purpose of compatibility check.
For example, a person who is born on 7 September has the Sun sign Virgo.

11. What Is A Sun Sign?

Position of Moon in the sky during the birth of a person is the Moon sign of that person. Calculating Moon sign is not easy because it depends on the exact birth time and birth place of the person. Moon sign is all about our inner feelings and emotions. It defines our romantic side and behavior. It is the Moon who decides what we need in our life. The Moon sign reveals our connection with our mother. Moon sign is used for many calculations like for match-making, general predictions and naming a person.

Moon sign controls our important organs like liver, heart, brain, left eye, heart and also flow of hormones in our body. A person is called “double signed” if his Sun sign as well as Moon sign are same.
