What is Astrology?

Astrology is a spiritual science studying the manifestation of information in space and time through projection of meaning onto the material objects. The principal information perception tool is the consciousness.

In astrology the objects of research are the predestination (as static projection of meaning) and destiny (as dynamic projection of meaning).

In other words, astrology is a qualitative theory of information operating with concepts of meaning and symbol.

History of Astrology

Astrology must be regarded as a science, in fact, as the first and the most important science of antiquity and the ultimate origin of science as we understand it today.
—N.M.Swerdlow, The Babylonian Theory of the Planets[1], p.5

Astrology was created long before the beginning of the reliably known history of mankind. The archeological data related to the ancient civilizations (such as Babylonian, Chinese, Egyptian, Mayan, etc.) suggests that the sophisticated systems of prediction based on the celestial events (also known as omens) existed around 3000 BC or even earlier in different parts of the world.
