INSIDE: If you've ever wondered if there is any truth to astrology, you're not alone. Here, we'll outline some theories about the science of astrology so you can decide for yourself.
Whenever the topic of astrology comes up, the curiosity behind the mystery of it all seems to go hand in hand, leading many of us to question, “is astrology real?” and “what’s the science of astrology?”
Astrology has the ability to predict everything about you – your past, present and your future. It analyzes your personality, behavior, likes, and dislikes. Composed of signs, astrology planets, and houses, it is a vast subject and falls under the category of pseudoscience.
There are a lot of people who inquire about the science of astrology but remain in denial. Similarly, there are tons of people who strongly believe in it.
If you’re here, you've probably found some truth to it, but need some reassurance.
So let's dive into the reality of the science of astrology and answer your most burning questions...
What is Astrology?
Astrology is an ancient study of astronomical objects and their relative positions that has claims to deliver divine information. It is a system that tracks the movement of the planets, moon, and sun in order to predict your horoscope.
Information about your birth date, time, and location can unravel an entire map to your past, present and future lives.
Astrology is an intriguing subject, no doubt, and it's all about interpretation, analysis, and prediction.
How Does Astrology Work?
Astrologers interpret the positions of the planets at the time we were born and then analyze the information gathered in order to predict things about our present and future.
All of these predictions are based on the co-relations which have been acquired through practical observation over the years. It is mainly dependent on the positions and angles of the planets and the indications that are related to them.
The Science of Astrology
Now that you have an understanding of what astrology is, we're going to answer that burning question of yours: What is the science of astrology?
There are quite a few scientific theories that support the science of astrology. Let's look at a few of them...
Radio Waves & Planetary Positions
There’s one theory that confirms the effect of the positions of planets on the propagation of radio waves.
You may be wondering what the correlation is between radio waves and human beings... Well, the brain emits radio waves, commonly known as brain waves. These waves are a milder version of radio waves.
In 1951, an American radio engineer named John H. Nelson observed that the position of certain planets at certain angles do cause a disruption in the propagation of radio waves. It's known as Nelson’s Theory of Propagation.
Nelson also observed that the degraded propagation of radio waves correlates with time. But what does that mean?
If planets and their positions have an effect on the propagation of radio waves, then they can also have an effect on the radio waves emitted by the human brain, also known as EEG.
Nelson’s theory is an objective evidence of astrology. Mind-blowing, right?
But let's dive in deeper...
Planetary Positions & Fetal Effects
English astronomer, Percy Seymour also provided a scientific theory of astral influences. In his theory, he explained how the positions and revolution of the solar system affects the development of a fetus and a human baby’s brain.
Revolving Planets, Geomagnetism & the Human Brain
While explaining the science of astrology, he further said that revolving planets are responsible for solar activity and geomagnetism.
Each planet and the Sun and the Moon have their particular cosmic energies, frequencies, and resonances. They telegraph their effects to us via magnetic signals.
These waves and energies create tides in the gaseous layer of the sun, which produce particles that emit signals. These magnetic signals travel through space and hit the Earth’s magnetosphere, ringing it like a bell.
These signals are then received by the neural network present in a fetus’ brain. This reception of signals affects a baby’s development inside a mother’s womb.
The magnetic field of Earth keeps on changing, and geomagnetism affects the human brain.
Geomagnetism is dependent on the movement of the planets, as well as the changes in the solar system and its energies. Therefore, planets do have an effect on our brain.
Not only that, but scientists have also found some traces of magnetic materials in the cerebellum of our brain.
At first, scientists used to conclude that cerebellum only controls motor coordination and simple movements, but now they've discovered that the cerebellum also controls cognitive thinking and emotions.
Magnetic changes even have an effect on the alpha rays in the brain, and alpha rays have a deep impact on our personality and behavior.
Dr. Harold S. Burr, a professor of Astronomy at Yale’s medical school, said while explaining the science of astrology that the magnetic field not only has an effect on the human brain development at birth, but also controls it throughout life as the magnetic fields and energies keep changing.
He also explained that the human brain (the central nervous system, to be precise) is an exceptionally good receptor of electromagnetic waves, even in the finest form.
The Moon & Human Behavior
Did you know that studies have also shown that the gravitational pull of the moon affects the fluids present in our brain? And that can cause a change in behavior, especially around the lunar cycle when the moon is changing phases.
Maybe that’s why the term "lunatic" is used to describe someone acting out of character, and maybe it's why a full moon is said to bring out "scary" behavior.
The study of astrology has been raising questions basically since day one, and there’s been a magnitude of research on the truth behind the science of astrology to back it up.
You’ve learned just a few pieces of evidence but there’s so much more out there. That’s the fun part of learning about astrology - digging deeper to uncover the goldmine of information about yourself and the world.
