One aspect of astrology is that it affects our lives. The different movements of the moon or the planetary movements or alignments affect our minds and emotions and we do not even realize this. The planetary positions at the time of our birth in the astrological chart can be compared with the planetary position of any time. This study will show how a particular planet or two influence our lives to a great extent at a given time. The result may be positive or negative, but these comparisons highlight the change in our lives or our moods and reactions to events. This is nothing but astrology.
The planetary movements not only have their impact on us, but we are also affected by the planetary movements of the people whom we deal regularly with, be it our parents, spouse, kids, relatives, friends, colleagues, bosses, acquaintances, etc. And these people are also affected by astrology as much as we are..
It has also been seen in many cases, people start believing in astrology at the times of disasters. Why? The word “disaster” is made up of two root words – “dis”, which means separation, and “aster”, which means star, thereby giving the meaning “separation from the stars”. This also gives a logical explanation of the influence of the movement of the stars in our lives. In short, the significance of astrology lies in the direct influence that the moon, stars and the eight planets have on our lives.
