Astrology and Horoscopes
  • The calculations involved in constructing a horoscope are based on geocentric models of the solar system (i.e., earth is at the center).
  • The interpretation of horoscopes is based on manuscripts and texts passed down across generations. Many of these are authored by respected astrologers.
  • Many of the modern horoscopes that we are familiar with are highly simplified versions based on a person’s zodiac sign (e.g., Aquarius, Leo, Capricorn).
