What's your star sign?

Since the earliest times, the human race has been on a life-long mission to discover its relationship with the cosmos.

Man has studied astrology for literally thousands of years, there are records that originated in Babylon, circa 1650 BC.

Other cultures, such as Egyptian and Greek developed timekeeping and calendar methodologies. From the time man began to observe and track the world around him, he’s also contemplated his own relationship to the earth, stars, planets and elements around him. Astrology was one of the ways that earliest civilizations helped define their place in the cosmos. They perceived it as being greater than themselves; not something to be conquered, but to be understood.

Were you aware Copernicus and Galileo practiced astrology?

Well, now that you can see what fine company you are in, why not get comfortable and take a glimpse into the future?

Most people that have read a really good astrological profile of themselves have to admit there are some uncanny coincidences.

Can we really pretend we’re so knowledgeable of the universe that we can reject the discipline of astrology. Maybe Shakespeare had something there when he wrote in Hamlet, *There are more things on heaven and earth Horatio than are dreamt of in your philosophy.*

In the modern day, astrology is seen as new age and not as credible as sciences like astrophysics or chemistry, at one time it was as credible a science as any other. Astronomers like Galileo and Copernicus were also practicing astrologers. With the evolution of more quantitative sciences, astrology’s influence and position began to diminish.

Here's something you probably didn't know: Astrology enjoyed a resurgence in the 1930’s with the birth of England’s Princess Margaret. The London Sunday-Express ran her astrological profile, and that event was the origin of the modern daily horoscope in the newspapers.
