    Why do people believe in astrology? The answer to the question lies very much in the same realm as why people believe in just about any superstition. Astrology offers a number of things which many people find very desirable: information and assurance about the future, a way to be absolved of their current situation and future decisions, and a way to feel connected to the entire cosmos.

    Astrology shares this with many other beliefs which tend to be categorized as "New Age," for example the idea that nothing in life is truly coincidental. On this view of life, everything which happens to us, even the smallest or seemingly most insignificant event, happens for some particular reason. Astrology then claims to provide at least some of the answers as to why they happen, and perhaps even a way to predict them in advance. In this way, astrology purports to help people understand their lives and the world around them - and who doesn't want that?

    In a sense, astrology does work. As practiced today, it can work quite well. After all, most of those who visit an astrologer end up feeling satisfied and feeling that they have benefited. What this really means is not that astrology has accurately predicted the person's future, but rather it means that visiting an astrologer or having a horoscope cast can be a fulfilling and personally satisfying experience.

    Think about what happens during a visit with an astrologer: someone holds your hand (even if only figuratively), looks you in the eye, and explains how you, as an individual, are actually connected to our entire cosmos. You are told how mysterious forces in the universe around us, far greater than ourselves, work to shape our intimate destinies. You are told relatively flattering things about your character and life, and in the end you are naturally pleased that someone cares about you. In the hectic and generally disconnected modern society, you feel connected - both to another human being and to the world around you.

    I hope this helps!!!

    Good Luck!!! =)*

    Like with any study, there are alternative interpretations of the same thing and contradictions that seem unexplainable. Any science has this problem - it does not make what is observable untrue.

    You should come to your own conclusion as to whether astrology is true or not. Do some reading, look at detailed charts of yourself and your family or friends. You will find that astrology has much to say if it is truly understood.

    Taking someone's word for it that it is or isn't true is not advisable, because you will be speaking someone elses conviction, not yours. You should find out for yourself.

    There are contradictions in astrology because humans are contradictive beings. And there are lots of interpretations because astrology is very complex and much has to do with the person who is interpreting the natal chart. Its important to note that astrology is not definite it shows us our tendency towards different kinds of behaviours. I would say that people who understand astrology really can use it for their personal growth but I'm not sure it is for everyone. hope this helped :)

    If you go to cafeastrology.com and calculate your birth chart, and read through it, I'm sure that will make you believe in it. I have studied Western astrology for years, and I find it to be very accurate.
