Silly Astrology Myths You Could Do Without

Astrology is one of the most fascinating branches of science, which is also called a pseudoscience by many. However, whether it’s an art, science or pseudoscience is still open to debate. Here are 7 silly myths about astrology that need debunking.

1) It’s Hogwash

People who don’t believe in astrology, mainly the new age scientists, who don’t believe planetary positions and cosmic objects can determine a person’s future, call astrology a pseudoscience. However, even they don’t have an explanation as why some people act in a certain way, get certain things only on certain days. Answers to this question can only be found in astrology and hence the biggest myth ‘astrology is pseudoscience’ is debunked here.

2) Astrologers are charlatans

People say that astrologers simply do some face reading, say what people want to hear and make everything up. However, astrological predictions are done after calculating planetary movements, signs and reading natal charts with utmost carefulness. Sadly, there are many charlatans, just as there are in every field, but not all astrologers are like that.

3) 12 signs, 12 personalities

Some people believe that according to astrology there are only 12 types of people classified by their signs. However, this statement cannot be further from the truth. According to astrology, every person is unique, classified by his planetary position, stars, birth place and time.

4) It helps predict future

Nothing can help predict future. Astrology can only guide you about the planetary movements and positions of cosmic objects. They can also shed light on how these movements will affect you but they cannot tell you what will happen to you. They can tell you to be more cautious on certain days or take a decision on certain days but can’t tell you how your decisions will affect your future.

5) It’s all about sun sign

This statement too is not entirely true. Astrology considers moon, other nine planets and stars or nakshatras too. They lay equal weight on Venus that affects your love life, Mercury that affects your behavior and communication or Saturn that affects your overall demeanor and luck.

6) It doesn’t consider sun signs

Funny how some people say astrology is all about sun signs and some that it has got nothing to with sun signs. The truth, as said above, is that astrology considers every single thing and lays proportionate importance on everything.

7) Astrology helps find soul mates

Some people believe that astrology will help you find your soul mate. Sadly, this is not possible. Astrology can help you find out if you are compatible with someone or not, but it will not find ‘an ideal match’ for you. The truth is no one is Mr. Perfect or Ms. Perfect and astrology cannot help you find one. In the end, it is all about how you both work towards the relationship.

Astrology is an art as well as science. It can help you guide in your path towards future. It is best to avoid these myths and see astrology in a new light; perchance you might find a new direction in your life through astrology and remedy certain situations in your life.

Vedic Astrology is an age old science and has helped many in achieving success in their lives.
