Why would they care about a planet trillions of miles away with mass less than 100 times the mass of our sun? We are so pathetically minute and incapable within our own solar system that we couldn't even land a man on Venus.
The Greek then assigned zodiac signs to each constellation which we now call horoscope. A basic horoscope is related to a person’s birth time, date, and year as well as during which of the twelve Zodiac segments the birth occurs. The year is divided into twelve parts, each named after a different constellation that is prevalent in the sky. Each Zodiac sign has both positive and negative characteristics.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Scorpio (October 23-November 22)
Sagittarius (November 23-December 21)
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
The Chinese also had their own version of horoscope. It uses animals as horoscope signs which are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, monkey, boar or pig, horse, sheep, rooster and the dog. The Chinese horoscope changes on an annual basis whilst the Greek horoscope changes every month.
There are, however, people who think that horoscopes are nonsense.
For the Chinese version, they argue, it is remotely possible that the characteristic of a particular animal could determine the character of an entire generation. If that is the case, then we would see an annual fluctuation in students' results (ox-students are extremely hardworking, boar-students are extremely lazy?), economic performance and even gross domestic product of a country. It is also unlikely that only those who are born in the year of the tiger that fit enough to join the military. Make sense?
An example of vain believer of astrology? I present to you, the former manager of France Football team, Raymond Domenech. If you thought his coaching methods were questionable and often outrageous, wait till you hear about how he goes about his team selections.
To Domenech, Scorpios were considered to bring in too much negative energy, while Leos often worried him because of a certain tendency to show off.
Advocates of horoscopes argue that the position of the moon and the sun affects our tides, and that in turn affects the plants, and wind, and rocks and trees. And we, being a part of the cycle, would also be affected. Impressive argument there.
But No. The constellations are stars situated light-years away from us. Their gravity is not enough to affect the tides on our planet. So forget about the above argument--totally busted.
In a nutshell, I do not believe in horoscopes.
Time to rebut the science of horoscopes(if you could call it science at all).
