The Origins and History of Modern Western Astrology
During the middle ages astrology like many other arts and sciences was more or less lost for a time. It was not until the Renaissance that astrology and many other lost works were returned to Europe from Arabia where much of it had first originated. The past one hundred years has seen a great rise in interest about astrology and a great demand for horoscopes.
Basic Understanding of Astrology & Horoscopes
At your exact time of birth all the planets, the moon and sun are in a certain pattern, this can be thought of as a birth chart or natal chart. Through the use of the information contained in your horoscope you can also obtain information on why you behave the way you do and why you are drawn to certain types of work and people.
The central principle within astrology is focused on the connection between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. This relationship can be expressed with the Hermetic axiom "as above, so below; as below, so above," which describes the symmetry between the human being as a microcosm and the cosmos as a macrocosm.
