"Astrology and astronomy<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrology_and_astronomy>
often indistinguishable before the modern
with the desire for predictive and divinatory knowledge one of the primary
motivating factors for astronomical observation.
Astronomy began to diverge from astrology after a period of gradual
separation from the Renaissance <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renaissance> up
until the 18th century.
Eventually, astronomy distinguished itself as the
of astronomical objects and phenomena without regard to the astrological
speculation of these phenomena."
And thus the existence of such a science or practice has gone a long way in
the development of modern science and simply explains the thought processes
of curious minds or the old.
The continuing human civilization defines "science" and how far are we in
the evolutionary ladder to make such terms is still unclear.
My point if this civilization has defined science as it is may be the future
would view it in a "primitive" or pseudo-state and thus totally pilfering
our present ideas.
Nevertheless DUE regard must be given to the existence of such
knowledge(pseudo-knowledge) that has been reflected or refracted into modern
Though the authentic people of the old who practiced astrology are long gone
some still practice it ( how much of it is authentic or close to authentic
is the question)
PS. I personally view the current practice with an overwhelming skepticism.
