Astrology is a mystical art centered around the twelve star constellations. Its origins trace back to a time when “gods” walked and talked with men. It predates all of the sacred writings, religious doctrines, and philosophies dominated in today's society. Nearly all early civilizations embraced astrology, including Ancient Babylon, Egypt, Greece, China, and Rome. Astrology is defined as the ancient art of divining the fate of human beings, according to the position of the twelve star constellations and other heavenly bodies. Astrology gained support from some of the greatest men and women to ever walk the planet, including Plato, Copernicus, Sir Isaac Newton, and Flamstead. Many modern academic minds, politicians, and established businessmen embrace astrology.
