Astrology: Is It Scientific and How to Apply It to Life?

Astrology has become an increasingly popular topic lately. Someone thinks that the influence of the change in the position of celestial bodies on a person is absurd, but someone seriously takes up their study and accepts this connection. Whether to believe in horoscope science or not, that’s your choice to decide.
However, if you want to understand the basic principles of this sphere, you need to approach the learning wisely. In this article, you will find out why weekly horoscopes don't work for everyone and how to find out your personal forecast.

Zodiac Signs: Where Do Zodiac Signs Come From?


The first mention of the zodiac signs existence appeared in the astronomy of ancient Babylon. This is where the division of the year into 12 calendar months came from. In astrology, the signs of the Zodiac are divided and equal areas of the celestial sphere.

Translated from Greek, "zodiacal circle" means "circle of animals." There are twelve signs of the zodiac constellations in total, but not all of them are the images of animals or even living beings. Among them ー Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. The names of the signs come from the zodiacal constellations that previously corresponded to them. However, in the centuries that followed, the stars drifted along the grid of signs, and today most of the astronomical zodiac constellations are projected onto the next sign.


Why you shouldn’t trust the horoscopes by zodiac signs. 


It is believed that when a person is born under a certain zodiac sign, he or she is automatically endowed with character and those qualities that are inherent in his/her sign. Perhaps this is partially true, but we must remember that we are all different persons after all. We are born with different possibilities and under different circumstances. Genetics also plays an important role. Of course, nature has an influence on us, but there is a number of other factors due to which the our own “Myself” is formed.

Remember when you studied the horoscope for your zodiac sign for the next day, month, year, and in real life did not observe any similarity with the forecast? This is because it is simply impossible to determine one horoscope for all people born under a certain sign. Experienced astrologers, making a general forecast for the signs of the zodiac, always warn that everything they say may not resonate with absolutely every person. This is precisely because we were all born under different circumstances. 

If the general predictions you’ve heard from YouTube bloggers or read on the Internet do not work, then how can you forsee your future? To do this, you can calculate your natal chart or use the services of a specialist or a specialized app like our Human Cosmos.

Natal chart ー is an astrological chart that includes the location of the planets at the date, exact time and place of your birth. Based on this information, you can describe the traits of the person who owns the card, and even predict possible events in their life. See, the question “Is zodiac real?” has automatically been answered. If you think wisely you get a practical result.

What do planets have to do with astroprognosis?

Planets in the houses — what does that mean?


Science of astrology is also about understanding how the position of the personal planet may affect your life events.Prediction of probable events in life is based on the twelve houses of the horoscope, each of them is responsible for its own, specific area of ​​human life. Unlike the signs of the Zodiac, humanity has not yet discovered a single ancient literary, philosophical or logical source of this information. The doctrine of houses is believed to have originated around the first century BC.

There are many systems for calculating the location of houses. Only 12 of them are classic due to their wide popularity. Houses do not have a clearly marked territory that belongs to them. The size is only conditional and, moreover, it tends to change during the day. In astrology, it is more important to understand the position of the planet in the house, and not in the sign of the zodiac.

So, these houses are sort of indicators in which area the influence of signs and planets on us will be most powerful. The signs of the planet are the energy itself, but the house is the place where this energy will be used.
