Astrology as Ancient Wisdom

I really respect astrology. Astrology is a fascinating combination of ancient empiric knowledge, mysticism, fatalism, and even everyday entertainment! Even though many people consider it just nonsense, the undeniable fact is that even today it has a huge influence on the world views of many people. It is not just about reading your daily horoscope from a newspaper for fun, but also about understanding and categorizing human behavior, and even comprehending the yearly twelve-month cycle based on the signs of the zodiac. This happens in very deep subconscious level.
            And even though astrology has certain religion-like qualities, it totally lacks one feature so sadly typical to most religions: violence. In its deepest level, astrology is about seeking harmony between different, even contradicting elements.
