We all know what astrology is, and we’ve all heard about the horoscope. But when it comes to the credibility of astrology or its effectiveness, we have some major doubts. Why? Because astrology is seen today as a method of character analysis and nothing more. Psychological astrology was born in the late 19th century during new age exploration and was later fueled by developments in psychology in the 20th century.
Astrology has its roots in the ancient world where astrology and astronomy were one and the same science. The oldest evidence for the western tradition of astrology comes from Mesopotamia in the late 3rd millennium BCE . Traditional astrology is divided into 3 distinct periods: Hellenistic (1st century BC to 7th century CE), Medieval (7th century CE to 14 the century CE), and Renaissance (14th century CE to 18th century CE).
