Modern astrology, as we know it today, is relatively a young science. It is not considered a science in common and in official terms, but a pseudo science. It falls under the category of alternative and esoteric paths, although, long ago, it was much appreciated and respected, just as any other science.
Astrology in wider perspective has ancient roots and a very long and colorful history.
There were times astrologers were admired and honored and there were others astrology was denied and believed to be some sort of sorcery and dark magic. However, it was not until recent times it was practiced amongst much wider population, while at the same time considered trickery and just another way of making some money for personal needs.
Nevertheless, we think astrology is a beautiful path of observing the world and trying to understand it.

However, there is no guarantee in these matters, since there is no academy for astrologers. You will have to rely on people’s experience and your guts.
There are, of course, people who take astrology most seriously and practice it according to well-established rules and methodology. Astrology is a science, since it features all the elements essential for a scientific approach to have. It is alternative and pseudo, since it is not enlisted amongst official disciplines.
