Astronomy Across Cultures pp Cite as. Astrology in the twentieth century West has a central place in popular culture, at least if we judge from the spread of horoscope columns in the press and popular magazines.
There has been little attempt to trace the causes for its popularity or even to examine its nature. Most histories of the subject from Thorndike to Tester assume a fundamental conceptual and technical break between Babylonian and Greek astrology in the last centuries BCE.
They say that western astrology also effectively came to an end in the late seventeenth century, when it lost its intellectual respectability, allowing for little connection between then and the present day. However, while it is clear that astrology, like any other belief system, experiences periods of reinvention as it passes between different cultures and periods, it is possible to identify a fundamental continuity from the earliest Babylonian astrology to the present day.
Contemporary popular astrology may therefore be seen as a remarkable revival of the practical applications of an ancient non-Western astronomy, that of Mesopotamia of four thousand years ago, one which predates all the other intellectual pillars of western society, from Greek philosophy to Judaism, Christianity and modern scientific method.

A horoscope or other commonly used names for the horoscope in English include natal chart , astrological chart , astro-chart , celestial map , sky-map , star-chart , cosmogram , vitasphere , radical chart , radix , chart wheel or simply chart is an astrological chart or diagram representing the positions of the Sun , Moon , planets , astrological aspects and sensitive angles at the time of an event, such as the moment of a person's birth. It is used as a method of divination regarding events relating to the point in time it represents, and it forms the basis of the horoscopic traditions of astrology. In common usage, horoscope often refers to an astrologer 's interpretation, usually based on a system of solar Sun sign astrology ; based strictly on the position of the Sun at the time of birth, or on the calendar significance of an event, as in Chinese astrology.
Astrology , type of divination that involves the forecasting of earthly and human events through the observation and interpretation of the fixed stars, the Sun, the Moon, and the planets. Devotees believe that an understanding of the influence of the planets and stars on earthly affairs allows them to both predict and affect the destinies of individuals, groups, and nations. Though often regarded as a science throughout its history, astrology is widely considered today to be diametrically opposed to the findings and theories of modern Western science. Astrology is a method of predicting mundane events based upon the assumption that the celestial bodies—particularly the planets and the stars considered in their arbitrary combinations or configurations called constellations —in some way either determine or indicate changes in the sublunar world. Later the principles of Aristotelian physics were adopted, according to which there is an absolute division between the eternal, circular motions of the heavenly element and the limited, linear motions of the four sublunar elements: fire , air , water , earth.

Техники сновали по комнате. Что-то подсказывало Сьюзан, что они близки к разгадке. - Мы можем это сделать! - сказала она, стараясь взять ситуацию под контроль.
