The New Popularity of Astrology

Article by Jenie Hinaloc

Astrology has been a part of everyday life in America for some time, but not always so. The popularity of astrology has ebbed and waned for the last several thousand years in the Western world. Only in the last hundred years has astrology actually become popular once again in the Western world. On the other hand, has only been in the last twenty years that serious study of astrology has emerged in America.

Astrology actually made its debut in the Western world, thousands of years in Mesopotamia. The art of astrology came to Greece around 600 BC. The practice further spread throughout the Roman world, then abruptly disappeared.

With aging European “enlightenment”, also known as the Renaissance, astrology once more made an appearance in the Western world. The study of astrology and its use in everyday life became commonplace. However, early Christianity and religious leaders took place in astrology once more.

Astrology did not reappear on the scene until the late eighteen hundreds. During this time, two prominent astrologers came forward and began to publish information about their art. This practice came to America in early twentieth century, and then continued to spread.

In late 1930, the study of astrology became even more common in the United States with the publication of American Astrology, a magazine which offered the first detailed horoscopes. While the magazine itself did not remain in print for a long time, the study of astrology and American interests in art continued to flourish for some time. Horoscopes have appeared in major newspapers and later other print media since then.

However, the true art of astrology and the serious study of the stars were once again lost. In the sixties and seventies, serious astrologers once again came to light, and more people began taking the study of astrology seriously. This was the beginning of what is known as the New Age movement.

Over recent decades, the New Age movement has continued to evolve. The study of occult religions such as Wicca continues to encourage the exploration and use of astrology in the United States. Today, astrology is a very controversial topic in America for some and a way of life for others.

The popularity of astrology has grown significantly over the past twenty years. More and more people have turned to Wicca and the occult for answers that they feel have not been found in Christianity. In these religions people feel that they have more control over their lives. Astrology is a part or control. Used to plan ahead and make decisions in the present.

Books on the subject have also become common in the United States during the past twenty years. Books no longer cover simple horoscopes and zodiac signs. Books on astrology that actually teach the art of divination and astrology charts have become very common and popular. While some Christian groups still rile against the art, astrology is alive and well in America today

Sports Astrology On Cricket

It is accepted by all astrologers and lovers of astrology that Mundane Astrology has been neglected and has not received its due alternation from the scholars of the Deviance Science. Be that as it May, and knowing that Mundance astrology is a difficult subject, and attempt is made on more principles as applicable to sports-astrology on cricket.
To start with it is necessary to signify the planets responsible for Cricket – the moose popular out-door to play. Apart from being representative of the ‘young (Kumar), the grassy-ground comes order its domain thought the sophisticating cutting of the grass and preparation of the ground for play gets to Mars and Venus. For a sportsman, Mars gives the necessary energy. The weather conditions have also to be looked and accordingly the sign of the Zodiac in which the configuration of planets takes place equally become important with reference to the dates of ply. The earthy signs and Airy sings are more important though dual signs become important though dual signs become important fro the ‘Toss’ to start with.
In Mundane Astrology, the 5th house is the representative of all places of amusement, entertainment and pleasure. All out-door sports would be looked from the 5th house. This also becomes the source of excitement. This also becomes the source of excitement. This astrological principle is established in the case of Azharuddin, Capt. Of the Indian team World Cup, 1996. He has Sun, Saturn, Mercury and Ketu in the 5th house aspected by the Moon, Mars and Rahu. The Moon in own sign with Budda-Aditua Yoga gave the needed strength to the native. (DOB -08.02.1963, TOB- 10.25 PM, POB-Hyderabad) though we are discussing supports point of view, romantic rifts (divorce, separation etc.) including stress from the women cannot be rules out as 7th house is aspected by Saturn, 2nd house is aspected by Mars, 2nd Lord is hemmed by malefics and benefit, 12th Lord the Sun is under the grip of Saturn/Mars/R.K.
For predicting the winner of any team the horoscopes of the country concerned, of the country concerned, of the Captain and of the country/Town where the match is playing become more important. It may be recalled that Rains in Pakistan on one of the scheduled day of play did not allow the match to be played.
predication with regard to defeat of INDIA made on 24th February, 1996 Via Horary had come true on 2nd March, 1996 when India was defeated by Sri-Lanka. With regard to planetary transit of India’s Horoscope (Taurus Lagna), the 5th house of sports occupied by Rahu in Virgo also speak of the victory to a foreign country. Weak Saturn with Ketu aspected the Lagna. Mars also aspected the Lagna Venus the Lagna Lord had no strength as it has just entered Aries (12th house on 01.03.1996). Ruing Nakshtra Pushaya and the week day Saturday also contributed to the defeat of India on 02.03.1996. without dwelling on the defeat of India, following observations are made:


1). It is not only the country’s horoscope and that of the Captain that decides the winning of the match but also of all the Members of the team as members have equally an important role-to play.

2). the predictive notes should be made on the basis of possible planetary and horoscopes of the countries concerned. Be that as it may, horary chart and transit of planets at the place where match is being played to determine the fate of the Term concerned.

3). The horary prediction on 24th February, 1996 was made w2ith the help of COURT CHART i.e. with reference to Nakshtra. The natal Nakshtra and the transit Nakshtra of the day do determine the fate of the match.

4). Bad planetary position had given rise to various internal rifts including the order from the Government on the eve of Delhi Match that Kokla ground is unsafe and also bad-planetary position for the Match day. India lost to Sri-Lanka on 02.03.1996.


The conception of the wills Cups for 1996 tool plan on 12th May, 1995 when the World Cup Cricket Organizing Committee formalized its agreement. Venus had entered Aries, Mars had no strength (entered Leo on 11.05.1995), the Sun had also weakened and so was the case with Saturn. Mercury was to conjunct with Retrograde Jupiter shortly. This also confirms that India and Pakistan, with weak Lagans in transit had no chance to win-rather the bad planetary position gave rise to ‘Ominous start to Cup of Woes’ on 12th Feb. 1996 at Calcutta.
Few words about the planetary position on past matches. On 19.02.1995, Pakistan beat Zimbabwe (won series by 2-1) because of better strength of Sun, Saturn, Mercury and Venus though Mars (R) (Lagna Lord) was weak. On 22.11.1995 India defeated West India (Bombay) under captainship of Moh. Azhruddin because of very strong seventh house (5 planets). On 03.05.1995, Australia indicated a crushing defeat on West Indies because of Sagittarius and its Lord Jupiter/Retrograde) aspecting the Moon and Mercurry and also aspecting the Sun in exaltation sing. The ‘draw’ match on 28.08.1995 between England and West Indies is also proves astrologically. For England (Aries Lagna), the 6th house with Moon, Mars and Numerically become powerful and for West Indies the Lagna becomes powerful (ruling sign Virgo). Again 29.10.1995, there was ‘draw’ between India and Newzealand because powerful planetary position of India (Sun Venus in 6th house) and Mars and Jupiter in 7th house.
From the above it is clear that apart from the country’s horoscope, horoscope of the Captain, planets in transit have and important say for the winner or loser. Similarly, other circumstances including of weather cannot be ignored.

Chinese Astrology Question…?

Question by Piscium: Chinese Astrology Question…?
I was looking through my “The New Astrology” by Suzanne White book and it’s kind of hard to read about some people because they are on cusps. So usually I just read both signs and kind of combine the two, which really isn’t accurate at all, I should find an astrology book about cusps.
*If you know of one or have one could you please let me know, Thanks!

My question is, does chinese astrology have cusps as well?
My boyfriend was born Dec. 20th, makes him a sagittarius/capricorn cusp but because he was born so close the new year does it mean he’s a snake/horse?? Does that even like exist?

Just curious! =]

Q&A: Has Chinese mixed with Western type astrology been useful to you?

Question by octa: Has Chinese mixed with Western type astrology been useful to you?
I’ve tried tropical Western, Vedic, and other types of astrology. They left me feeling skeptical about astrology, and then I read a book that combines Chinese with Western. Some of you who remember my questions on here know that I’m very critical of things I find that don’t work. I found a book by Suzanne White called “The New Astrology”. Nothing, and I mean nothing, has explained me and people I know like this method does.

After all the complex chart analysis, and finding most of it didn’t fit me, here is an elegant explanation that has been 100% for myself and every person I know!

Have you tried this method, and has it been life changing for you?
I have been a skeptic of astrology. I used to say the type of things you both are saying.

I’m very excited because this Chinese-Western blend is accurate for myself and everyone I know. I’ve been where you are, but I think the difference is I’m the type of skeptic that will read astrology books before making my decision. I’m not saying I “need” this type or any type of astrology. I’m just so excited that it is spot on. It’s an elegant method without all the “fudge factors” in other types of astrology.

Answer by pikachuflatulates
The position of the moon, stars, and planets have nothing to do with your life. Nor does the month you were born. The only changes that happen are in your mind, from your thoughts. It is baffling how some people will reject the Bible, yet believe this stuff.

The astrology is all different, because it is all made up. For it to be real, there would need to be some supernatural power to control all this, and that supernatural power has to be capable of thinking of this stuff. When you say this, it is starting to sound a lot like the Bible………

I can understand why you find that it doesn’t fit you. It is random and has no meaning.
