knows astrology is rubbish!
No way can we predict how people are going to feel, or react,
at any time in the future - based on being born at a particular time
Astrology has to be considered as two disciplines, each one originating for quite different reasons.
1) Ancient protective forecasting guarding the country or Earth itself. ref101
2) Babylonian (c. 600 BCE): predictive forecasting, initially for the country and advise to the ruler, much later becoming interesting to nobles and then to a wider audience.
We now know, from hard science, that
alignments of solar system masses (planets) do affect the reactions and energy output of our Sun - in strict cyclical progression over time. ref102
And that -
these alignments periodically alter UEF 'pressure',
and could conveniently be divided into 12 periods within the year -
And that -
changes in UEF pressure affect human brain & body cells; ref104
such effects, on embryos, could confer differing basic traits
those traits could be conveniently divided into 12 major groups:-
Meta - stage
Therefore an observer armed with knowledge of
a) the effects - on human cells - of each of the 12 annual periods
b) the reactions - of each of the 12 human groups - to such effects
could fairly accurately predict major intellectual and bodily changes in
humans for particular time periods in the future - based on time of birth
of each individual.
CONFIRMATIONS & UPDATES:

Sep 2011 - UK Stats Office finds correlation of birth months and life-careers
We seem to have come full circle!
Increasingly, real data seem to be confirming more and more of what was once scorned as 'superstition' or 'old wives' tales' / 'magic' & 'fairy tales'.
Research now tells us that
China ref106 Sumer & Babylon ref107 Egypt ref108 the Arabic world ref109 then (finally) the European world each possessed ancient knowledge and that such 'ancient knowledge' has been continually lost through destruction from cataclysm, or by war-lords and tyrants, since before the times of available recorded history
Someone used scientific data to predict human cellular activity and reactions for some period in the future
Was that an
Yet, academics today (2008) say `Astrology remains an effective working system'.
All welfare and adversity that come to man and other creatures come through the Seven and the Twelve. Twelve signs of the Zodiac, as the Religion says are the twelve commanders on the side of light; and the seven planets are said to be the seven commanders on the side of darkness. And the seven planets oppress all creation and deliver it over to death and all manner of evil: for the twelve signs of the Zodiac and the seven planets rule the fate of the world.

(late Zoroastrian book)
`The signs on Earth, just as those in heaven, give us signals. Sky and Earth both produce portents; though appearing separately, they are not separate: Sky and Earth are related'
