Astrological is a term that refers to the study and interpretation of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies, such as the sun, moon, planets, and stars, with the belief that they influence human affairs and natural phenomena on Earth. This ancient practice, which dates back to the 2nd millennium BCE, is based on the concept that there is a correlation between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. Astrologers use a variety of tools and techniques, including horoscopes, zodiac signs, and astrological charts, to analyze and interpret the cosmic influences on individuals, groups, and events. While astrology is often associated with divination and prediction, it also encompasses a broader philosophical and symbolic framework that seeks to understand the nature of reality and the interconnectedness of all things in the universe. Despite its long history and cultural significance, astrology remains a controversial subject, with many in the scientific community considering it a pseudoscience due to the lack of empirical evidence supporting its claims. Nonetheless, astrology continues to hold a significant place in popular culture, with many people turning to astrological readings and forecasts for guidance, self-understanding, and entertainment.
