NASA goes on to explain what happened. Some 3, years ago, the ancient Babylonians divided the Zodiac into an even 12 pieces. It varied immensely. NASA added the thirteenth sign, Ophiuchus, and actually noted the dates when the sun actually passes through each sign, rather than dividing them up evenly and arbitrarily. On its website, NASA explains how, since the axis of the Earth has tilted over the course of 3, years, the dates are slightly different than they were back then, since the path of the sun through the constellations has changed.
By James Grebey on September 20, Sign up for our newsletter. Astrology has been so undeniably disproved as it already was hundreds of years ago that it is hard to understand why people are still drawn to it. It staggers the mind that people actually believe in this nonsense. Always has worked. I am not vague in my readings. I am precise and accurate and my clients have affirmed my descriptions, comments and insights. There are many things that exist that science cannot prove, but that does not mean they do not exist. Science needs to ask the right questions. Scientific evidence involves being able to demonstrate the claims made under controlled conditions in a statistically significant way with a high degree of confidence.
Astrology has failed at every attempt at this. Science is a method of understanding reality that is based observations to verify or discount hypotheses. Astrology uses false hypotheses that have historically failed at every attempt at verification. Science forgets that all of its measuring sticks are self created.
Science has not managed to figure out how to measure things that do not fit its current limitations. When you get into sub-atomic or quantum physics, the very act of observing alters the observation. My claim is that astrology exists and it works. As the centuries rolled on, Science got more aware and understanding. But you seem to forget that astrology is as well. For example, dividing the ecliptic circle into twelve and putting people into each of these groups is entirely arbitrary; astrologers could just as easily have divided it into two or twenty groups.
The discussion regarding astrology predicting cyclones and earthquakes is just plain nonsense. First of all, cyclones are cyclical events that occur annually. Fiji experiences severe cyclones every year in a highly predictable way and, historically, many of them have caused widespread destruction. So observing a major cyclone in Fiji hardly demonstrates that astrology has demonstrated anything other than the obvious.
New Zealand is comprised of several volcanic islands with a high degree of seismic activity. Earthquakes occur frequently on the north island and a magnitude 5 earthquake is not uncommon.
Claiming that astrology predicted the earthquake would be like claiming that astrology predicted that there would be rain in London sometime this week. Astrology is not a science. It is the antithesis of science. You must be a very skilled scientist. Where did you study astronomy, solar physics, tidal dynamics, electromagnetism, volcanism and meteorology?
You used all these things to predict cyclones and earthquakes? If this is true, you are a very special person indeed. My apologies for challenging you. My hat goes off to you sir.

Science is science. Scientists are the most open minded people on earth. They have to be because most of science is counter-intuitive and often without precedent.

The most interesting discoveries in science were fraught with notions that were virtually unbelievable at first — concepts like universal gravitation, relativity, quantum physics, quantum field theory, evolution. But they had one thing in common. They passed the test of scientific scrutiny. History is full of them.
Astrologers fail to predict proof they are wrong - Telegraph
This is just complete nonsense. This is really nutty. Would you subject yourself to a couple of very simple introductory college physics problems? These should be very simple for you as you seem to have a remarkable ability in this area. Will you show me your diploma from a reputable university where you learned science so that you can demonstrate your credentials as a scientist? Provide to me the calculations that you undertook to predict, with pinpoint accuracy, the timing and severity of world events like the earthquake in New Zealand and cyclone in Fiji.
Me and my colleagues offer to do the equivalent of a peer review of your calculations at no cost to you.
Why your astrologer is wrong about you...
So you claim your method is scientific and that you use scientific methods like astronomy, solar physics, tidal dynamics, electromagnetism, volcanism and meteorology in your predictions but you you are unable to answer even a simple question testing even an elementary knowledge in one of these areas. You claim to have expertise in these areas and apply them in a way that appear to surpass the abilities of any modern scientist in making predictions about weather and seismic events, yet you admit that you have not studied the underlying science.
You can call me a bully if you want, but when someone makes outlandish and unsupportable claims, I will challenge them. There have been hundreds of tests of the validity of astrology and there is not one single case where it has proven to be able to predict anything with a degree of accuracy that exceeds random chance. That is the bottom line. I have no interest in censoring you. I will never confuse my Saturnine colleague with my Gemini one, and so on.
This is at the most basic level.
source It also happens that certain generations born in certain years tend to be more successful than others, there is nothing strange about it. I think he abandoned his belief system too soon…and so extremely as to dismiss all of astrology just because he learned something new about himself. Anyone who is working with someone who is at a crossroads and possibly having an identity crisis knows that they may be pliable and agreeable at the moment, but they will quickly conclude whether or not your information was accurate or just mumbo jumbo. Furthermore, if I had to guess, I would say that his progressed chart or long term transits will probably show a major planetary or house shift that accounts for his shift in perspective.
Still, the speed at which he threw in the towel is disappointing. How long is the right amount in your opinion, Alicia?

I am writing to thank you for this article and the comments that ensued. It has helped me refine some of my thinking regarding my profession. I am a professional astrologer and have been practicing full-time since Before that I was in academics as an English instructor at the university level for almost 17 years; my PhD is in English.
