8 of the Best Free Linux Astrology Software
Astrology is a set of traditions, beliefs and systems which
hold that there is a connection between
the movement of heavenly bodies and events that take place on Earth
such as human affairs, and personality. Astrologists use the position
of the planets to try to predict future events, and to inform the
psychological understanding of an individual's psyche.
Up until the 17th century astrology and astronomy were
inextricably intertwined. However, it is important to recognise that
astronomy and astrology are two very different disciplines.
Astronomy is the scientific study of celestial objects and is widely
respected in the scientific community, whereas astrology is based on
universal, timeless symbolism, it is often regarded as a
pseudo-science, and thought of as an art.
This article highlights the best astrology software that runs
