What is Astrology?
Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial objects as a means for divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events. Astrology has been dated to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, and has its roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications. Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and some – such as the Indians, Chinese, and Maya – developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations. Western astrology, one of the oldest astrological systems still in use, can trace its roots to 19th-17th century BCEMesopotamia, from which it spread to Ancient Greece, Rome, the Arab world and eventually Central and Western Europe. Contemporary Western astrology is often associated with systems of horoscopes that purport to explain aspects of a person’s personality and predict significant events in their lives based on the positions of celestial objects; the majority of professional astrologers rely on such systems.:83
Throughout most of its history astrology was considered a scholarly tradition and was common in academic circles, often in close relation with astronomy, alchemy, meteorology, and medicine. It was present in political circles, and is mentioned in various works of literature, from Dante Alighieri and Geoffrey Chaucer to William Shakespeare, Lope de Vega and Calderón de la Barca.
What is Numerology?
Often associated with astrology, numerology is the belief in the divine, mystical, and special relationship between numbers and events in the real world. Those that study numerology study the symbolism of numbers. It is often used to determine particular characteristics about a certain person including their personality, strengths, talents, inner needs, and emotional reactions.
Numerology is not a new phenomenon. The relationship between numbers and coinciding events has been noted for thousands of years. Indeed, numerology’s history stretches all the way back to ancient Egypt and Babylonia. The field was first formally organized by well-known mathematician Pythagoras about 2,6000 years ago in ancient Greece. Since its beginnings, numerology has constantly evolved, slowly becoming the modern field of study that it is today.
