What's your astrological sign? Everyone knows what his or her sign is. Even if you're not a believer that the position of the planets at the exact time of your birth is an indicator of your personality and can determine events that happen to your throughout your lifetime, you've certainly met someone who does believe. At the very least, it's harmless club conversation, a way to get to know someone. But is there something to it? Are horoscopes just hocus pocus or do they truly predict the course of events in your life?
Astrology is one of the earliest sciences known to human history. There are astrological records that originated in Babylon in 1645 BC. Other cultures, such as Egyptian and Greek developed timekeeping and calendar methodologies. From the time man began to observe and track the world around him, he's also contemplated his own relationship to the earth, stars, planets and elements around him. Astrology may have been one way that earliest civilizations helped define their place in the cosmos. They perceived it as being greater than themselves; not something to be conquered, but to be understood.
While in modern times astrology is seen as new age and not as credible as sciences like astrophysics or chemistry, at one time it was as credible a science as any other. Astronomers like Galileo and Copernicus were also practicing astrologers. With the evolution of more quantitative sciences, astrology's influence and position began to diminish. It enjoyed a resurgence in the 1930's with the birth of England's Princess Margaret. The London Sunday-Express ran her astrological profile, and that event was the origin of the modern daily horoscope in the newspapers.
Everyone who's read a really good astrological profile of himself has to admit there are some uncanny coincidences. Can we really pretend we're so knowledgeable of the universe that we can reject the discipline of astrology? Maybe Shakespeare had something there when he wrote in Hamlet, *There are more things on heaven and earth Horatio than are dreamt of in your philosophy.*

Astrology with Tarot
Stars and Cards
Astrology and Tarot are popular parlour games. All lovers are happy when their "star signs" make a good match or when they draw card "No. 6 - The Lovers" in a Tarot session. No further knowledge is required to make such a pleasant experience, just as they do not need any theoretical understanding of how to fall in love.
Astrology is a group of systems, traditions, and beliefs which hold that the relative positions of celestial bodies and related details can provide information about personality, human affairs, and other terrestrial matters. A practitioner of astrology is called an astrologer. Astrologers believe that the movements and positions of celestial bodies either directly influence life on Earth or correspond to events experienced on a human scale. Modern astrologers define astrology as a symbolic language, an art form, or a form of divination. Despite differences in definitions, a common assumption of astrologers is that celestial placements can aid in the interpretation of past and present events, and in the prediction of the future.

A variant of karmic astrology
Spiritual astrology necessarily contains some elements of karmic astrology. In karmic astrology karma (the negative causes accumulated in previous lives) and dharma (the overcoming of karma through the full expression of one's own Self), are expressed respectively by the southern and by the northern node, as well as by the disharmonious (karma) and the harmonic (karma) aspects of planets among them, and by the analysis of some astrological houses.

Astrology, New Age and Astrology
If you want to add your website to one of our pages or to another list of websites normally it is only necessary to provide the title and a description of your site - but often it is also possible to publish a whole story which points to your website. This method has advantages since one can provide information about topics which interest the reader in order to win new visitors for your homepage.
No matter how you structure your story you should always pay attention that you firstly care about your readers: You story should be controversial and show different opinions about a topic in order to raise discussions and to enchain your readers. In order to achieve this it is important to be an expert and the field of knowledge one writes about - so if you write one of your first stories about a topic you should first do a research on the internet: Only in this way you can offer thrilling information and new connections in an entertaining way.
Being neutral is an important element when publishing information: There is a reason why newspapers with their political coverage own a better reputation than the tabloid press which focuses on gossip and tittle-tattle. Honest information about various fields of knowledge can also easily be published in social networks where they can be associated with your profile. In this way the interested reader can learn more about you and recognize you as an expert in your field which ledas to more trust in your website and the products and services offered there. Especially in the internet the reputation of a website is important since there is no direct contact between humans and it is therefore difficult to come to an competent opinion about a site.
Many webmasters don't consider that also the website which is referenced by a story has to offer thrilling and interesting information about the topic of the story. Even an excellent story does not help much if you website does not contain further information which fascinates the new visitors and motivates them to stay on the site. For sure it is not always necessary to offer this information in text form: Many visitors like interactive sites, thrilling videos or artistic presentations that make them laugh, entertain them or enchain them in another way.

l were written by various authors in order to win new visitors for their websites. If you want to point to this page you can use the following information about our website and the page itself:
