Vedic Astrology is a science. In the Western world this concept is hard to swallow, even for those who practice yoga and tend to “believe in” these types of things. When we compare astrology to serious Western sciences, like medicine, physics or astronomy it doesn’t seem to measure up. The skeptical mind may think “there is no connection between the movements of heavenly bodies and events on Earth,” or “there has never been a scientific study that proves causality between the movements of planets and events on Earth. ” Yet, the skeptical mind is wrong.
