Over the recent years, polls and surveys have shown a significant decline in it's general beliefs, placing astrology as somewhat pseudoscience. Regardless of this report, I still believe astrology has the power and means of divining information in the life and affairs of humans through directional studies of celestial objects. So yes, I do believe in astrology.
Works of astrology dates as far back as 2millenium BCE when different cultures adopted it's process as a divine means of communication. It was like science, an advanced means of technology back then.
Unfortunately, civilization as well as weternization has made astrology seem like an old system of religion, a process demanding too much efforts before actually decoding a message from it's study. This is right to a extent, but astrology is not old fashioned, as Western astrology which dates back it' origin between 14-19 Century BCE is still in use till date.
Michel de Nostredame also known as Nostradamus was a believer, student and master of astrology. His combined use of horary and judicial astrology along with dark arts made him the greatest seer and prophet the world has ever known. His renowned for prediction some of the world's major events from the 15th century till modern day and way beyond our present date. Some examples of his predictions is the French revolution, Adolf Hitler with WW2, 9/11 and even his own death, all of which he prophesied through the use of astrology.
Napoleon too, one of the world's greatest leader used astrology consultations for his day to day activities. It is believed that astrological odds were against him, showing warnings of an imminent danger, but still, he went on to fight in the battle of waterloo where he died.
Drawing from this, it's only right to say that astrology has come a long way and helped shaped some of man's important history. The power of astrology is undeniable and I believe a lot call still be achieved through it's continued study.
