If any branch of science is going to explain astrology, it will probably be the quantum sciences. For now, I am content with the notion that astrology is a study of reflections: as above, so below. When you stand in front of a mirror, your reflection appears. Who caused your reflection, you or the mirror? It's both and neither. The objects in the sky simply reflect, for a lack of better words, what is happening on Earth.
Astrology is a tool; how we use it is up to us. There's dogmatic and fated astrology, which I am not fond of. I do support the use of astrology as a tool to heal, know ourselves better and live a wiser life. I do NOT support the use of astrology as a tool to label, divide and segregate people. Anybody who practices astrology should be aware of these issues. We should not be considered victims of our horoscopes. Most importantly, astrology is entertainment, so it should be fun, at the least.
